Step 1

\r\n


\r\n

Wash and blow dry the hair smooth. Use irons if necessary to create a straight finish.

Step 2

\r\n


\r\n

Working from above the arch of your right eyebrow, create a deep side parting that travels in a continuous line to the crown and then diagonally down to the nape of your neck on the opposite side, which in this instance is the left hand side.

Step 3

\r\n


\r\n

Apply Nicky Clarke Instant Calmer for shine and sleekness to each section. Brush into a sleek ponytail and secure with a bungee cord, which is a piece of elastic with a hook on each end. The right hand ponytail should be lower than the left side so it asymmetrical (this is for shape).

Step 4

\r\n

 

\r\n

Divide the ponytail in two and twist each section clockwise. Next wrap the two sections together, anticlockwise getting a rope braid and secure with a snag-free band. You might need someone to hold this for your while you do the same to the other ponytail.

\r\n

Once both ponytails are ready, wrap the high ponytail around the top of the lower one and use Kirby grips to pin in place.

Step 7

\r\n

 

\r\n

Keep working in this pattern until both ponytails are complete and secure in place.  Finish with Nicky Clarke Hold and Shine Ultimate Hairspray. You’ll notice the robe braids are at an angle – this is to create detail.
