Elegant Twist (top image)
Step 1: Section your hair into two halves.
Step 2: Section into three parts, and then drop the middle section.
Step 3: Loosely secure your two side sections with a hairband.
Step 4: Gather together the bottom half section, and secure loosely with a band.
Step 5: Tuck and roll the bottom half into the middle of the top section.
Step 6: Secure with pins or kirby grips, and style with a hairpiece if you like!
Fishtail Braid Quiff (ideal for mid to long hair)
Step 1: Section hair from the crown area from the bottom of your hair, and secure loosely with a hairband.
Step 2: Tuck and roll the crown section underneath itself, and secure with kirby grips.
Step 3: With the bottom section of the hair, plait a simple fishtail braid and secure with a hairband.
Step 4: Use hairspray to smooth any flyaway strands.
Step 5: For an ultra-slick look, tuck a piece of hair around the base of the fishtail plait to conceal the hairband.
French Roll (Modern Roll)
Step 1: Smooth the hair back and tie into a ponytail.
Step 2: Loosen the hair tie by pulling it back slightly, and then make a hole in the ponytail.
Step 3: Tuck and roll your ponytail into the hole on your preferred side (left or right).
Step 4: Roll and secure with pins, and finish with a spritz of hairspray.
