4. Flip head upright so that the ponytail now looks like a cone.

6. Position each plait as desired across the top of the hair and face, creating all your fullness on the crown and front of the head. Secure in place with bobby pins.

7. Pull out a few strands of hair to soften the style and create a whimsical flyaway finish. TIP: Do not apply any finishing product or hair spray to this style. [pagebreak]

Look 4:

winding from roots to ends, starting at the nape. Continue until full head is curled.

4. Ensure hair is curled very tight. TIP: Do not stretch or pull on hair after winding as you want to keep a very tight curl.

5. Allow hair to cool for 10 minutes.

6. With a large tooth comb, or your fingers, gently comb curls to slightly loosen.

7. With a small tooth comb, gently comb out curls at the top crown section to create a smooth finish, not disturbing the curls in the lengths of the hair. TIP: Be careful not to disturb the curls too much and remember you can use your fingers to create more texture and separation. [pagebreak]

lternate between a tight curl (holding for 6-7 seconds) and looser curls (holding for 3-4 seconds), styling full head. TIP: Always use a tighter curl on the hair at the crown.

7. Tip head upside down and run your fingers through to loosen curls. Then run a very wide tooth comb through curls to finish.

8. Give hair a good shake to loosen and spray with White Sands Infinity Hair Spray.

9. Turn head upright and, with fingers, tease end of the hair in an upwards motion to create the finished look.
