First, spray dry hair all over with heat protectant spray.

Then, create the bungee by looping two bobby pins onto either side of a hair tie.

Next, gather your hair into a ponytail, stick one bobby pin into one side of the ponytail, and wrap the hair tie around a few times. Secure the second bobby pin in place.

Then, curl small sections of the ponytail by wrapping the hair around a curling iron.

Then tuck small sections of hair up and underneath the headband. Grab the next section of hair and combine it with the previous section and repeat.

Then continue tucking all the way around your head.

You can either leave the headband in while you finish getting ready or do the whole process before you go to bed and sleep on it. Either way, you'll reveal some pretty ~fabulous~ curls once you take the headband off.

Clamp hair at the root with the flat iron pointing down, then twist it away from your face a full 360 degrees as you slowly pull downward.
