Try this edgy look:
- Start by backcombing the roots of your hair. Hold the hair taut at a 90 degree angle, and work the comb towards your roots, do about 4-5cm. Take it in sections until the whole head is covered, this is the key to making a look last longer, as well as giving it body.
- Then divide the hair into three sections. One square on the very top of your head, and two sections either side. Take one side section and bring it backwards and upwards, brush the top of the section so it is smooth. Twist the end of the section upwards, and then tuck the end of the twist behind the main central fold. Copy this on the other side and pin into place.
- Take the top square section, and backcomb even more to create a quiff (as above). Bring the quiff back to the join of the side twists and pin under itself. Let this look a little undone and effortless. Spray with hairspray and wear with lots of eye liner.
