1. Apply Kenra Whip Grip Mousse 9 on wet hair. Blow-dry. Once dry, apply Kenra Volume Dry Shampoo to the roots. 

 

 

2. Sweep the hair back and away from the face using your hands. Apply Kenra Air Grip 5 to add texture and give the hair an airy feel.

 

 

3. Use your fingers to loosely create a center part going all the way down the back, dividing the hair into two sections.

 

 

4. Take each section and twist it, securing with a bobby pin near the crown.

 

 

5. Pick up a medium-sized section of hair in the middle back of the head, just below the crown, and use it to create a braid.

 

 

6. Wrap the braid around the head and secure it with a bobby pin on the opposite side.

 

 

 

7. Take the remaining hair and create two braids going down the back, securing each with an elastic. Apply Kenra High Grip Hairspray 20 to add texture and hold to the braids.

 

 

 

8. Pick up one braid and wrap it in half, securing it to the scalp in the center back.

 

 

9. Once the first half is secure, pick up the end of the braid and wrap it to the scalp as well, securing it into place with bobby pins.

 

 

 

10. Repeat with the other braid, filling in any holes that are in the back by wrapping the braids around each other and pinning them. Finish the look with Kenra Volume Spray 25.
