Begin by prepping the hair.Curl the hair with the GHD Soft Curve Iron.Curl in opposite directions for added volume.
Run your fingers through the curls to soften them and make more of a wave.
Clip the top half of the hair aside for later.Grab a small section of hair by the left ear, and a small section of hair by the right ear, then combine them together in a ponytail by the right ear.
Flip the ponytail inside out, creating a topsy tail.
Pull on the base sections of the ponytail to soften and loosen them, hiding the elastic.
Repeat steps 3-5 until you reach the end of the hair, creating a long braid on the side.
Loop the end up loosely to add more volume.
Let down the crown section (not including the sides) and do a fishtail braid down the back.
Weave the fishtail braid in and out of the elastic braid to connect the two braids together by creating a hole with your fingers, pulling the braid through the hole, and then repeating that process, going up and down through the braid 2-3 times.
Let down both side sections and do small braids that meet together in the back.
Combine both braids into one braid that goes down to the ends.
Softly loosen the braid with your fingers.
Scrunch the braid up to the scalp and bobby pin in place, creating a messy bun.
