Clip up the top hair on one side of your head, leaving the back hair free. Take a small section of hair at ear level and comb it straight.
Start braiding quite tightly, doing one cross (right strand over centre, left over centre), and gradually bring more hair into the outside strands.
Continue in this way, taking the braid towards the back of the head.
Make another parting about 2.5cm/1in parallel to and above the previous braid, and repeat the process. Continue in this way until all the front hair has been braided. Scrunch the remaining hair into fulsome curls to increase the volume. Finally add a decorative Alice band.
