10. Part your hair at the highest point in your brow.

11. Make a part across your crown where a headband would sit.

12. Take a 1″ section of hair on the side with the most hair after it was parted and against the headband part.

13. Curl it, rolling the curl backward.

14. Once hair is thoroughly heated, remove it from the iron and pin in place with small pin curl clip to cool.

15.Section the hair in front of the curl you just made so that it goes from your original high eyebrow part to your other high eyebrow. Clip this section out of the way with one of your duck bill clips as we will get back to it later.

16. Curl the remaining hair in front of your headband part backwards, sectioning the hair as needed for proper curling.

17. Remember to place the pin curl clips in, once you remove the hair from the iron.

18. Repeat step 16 for the other side of your head.

19. Getting back to that neglected center front section…

20. …separate the hair into manageable curling amounts.

21. Curl each section AWAY from your original high eyebrow part.

22. After pinning those curls in place to cool, unpin the first side you curled, as they should now be cool.

23. Take a section closest to your face and tease the hair with your teasing brush making sure you are behind the hair.

24. Keep teasing that hair together chunk after chunk.

25. It will begin to look something like this.

26. Grab your Suavecita Pomade and take a little in your hands. Run it over the front of the hair to smooth fly-aways. Brush any surface lumps with your teasing comb.

27. Roll your hair with your fingertips towards the center back of your head. Remember to keep the roll full. Think cinnamon roll, not tunnel.

28. Pin you roll in place using hair colored bobby pins.

29. Now that those center front section curls should have cooled, lets take them out and form your center roll. Begin by teasing the underside of the hair which should be closest to the roll you just completed.

30. Smooth with teasing brush and pomade and pin in place with your bobby pins.

31. Tease your final side until it looks like this. This side will need more volume to make up for the lack of hair due to your side part.

32. Smooth with teasing brush and pomade and pin in place with your bobby pins.

33. Hairspray your rolls.

34. Now for the back! Almost done!

35. Take a section of hair directly behind your ears and curl it forward, holding the iron vertically.

36. Do the same on the other side.

37. With the remaining hair at the back of your head, curl it all downward. Pin to cool.

38. Once cool, take out your pins and brush the underside of your hair to give it volume. Smooth the top if needed and use a very small amount of pomade at the ends of your hair. Too much at your roots will make your hair greasy and stringy looking.Yuck!

39. Give your hair a good ol’ final spray and add some hair flowers : )
