1. Separate small sections of hair on each side of your head. Choose the amount of hair based on how large you want the braids to be.
2. Braid each section and secure the ends with a small, clear elastic.
3. Gather all hair, including the braids, into a ponytail at the nape of your neck. Remove the elastics.
4. Twist the ponytail into a loose bun and secure. For added volume, gently loosen hair at your crown.
