What you will need:

Brush
Hair clip
Two small clear hair bands
Bobby pins

Step 1: Start by brushing all your hair to remove any knots. Clip your hair back and take a 2.5cm section of hair from behind your left ear. Plait this section and secure the end with a small clear band. Pull at the sides of this section of the plait to loosen it and stretch it out. If you start pulling the plait just above the hair band and work back up, you can really enhance the shape of the plait and make your hair look thicker.

Step 2: Repeart on your right side, plaiting a 2.5cm section of the hair behind your right ear. Remember to stretch your plait out.

Step 3: Pull one of the plaits over your head and into a headband position and pin in place on top of your head.

Step 4: Cross the other plait over and pin in place. Tuck the ends of both plaits under each other and pin them down to hide them away. Then pin the plaits together for extra hold.
