To pull off this look, you first need to create volume by teasing your hair and adding in a little texture spray or serum. Then smoothen down your hair and gather a section at your  crown. Then, simply tie a chunky French braid taking large and irregular sections. As you work your way down the braid, be sure to angle the braid towards the side of your head and secure the end with a hair tie.

Pull at the braids to create fullness and volume before spritzing the braid with a stronghold spray.

Start out by brushing your hair back and tying your hair into a low ponytail. Part your hair just above the elastic and create a topsy tail. If your hair is long enough, bring it to the front of one shoulder to frame your face.
