1. Start with wavy or second day hair. This type of curl (and the curl I wore to my fall dinner) is mostly natural curl with a few pieces on top curled with the flat iron (learn how to curl with a flat iron here).

2. Beginning on one side near your part. start an inverted french braid (also called a dutch braid). I left out the front of my hair to soften the look around my face. but you can include your bangs in the braid if you'd like.

5. Before you bobby pin, use one hand to hold the end of the braid while using the other hand to pull on and loosen individual sections. The more you pull. the bigger your braid will get

6. Once you're happy with how it looks, secure it with bobby pins on the opposite side, a few inches behind your ear.
