1. Start by spraying mousse onto a paddle brush, then brushing it through hair to evenly distribute it.
2. Blow-dry hair, concentrating airflow at the roots. Grab hair with brush and pull upward and outward as it’s being dried to add volume and height.
3. Create a side part. In one section, start a three-strand French braid, weaving it along the crown. Secure in place with bobby pins. In the other section, create a five-strand French braid and continue braiding in the opposite direction of the initial braid. When both braids meet, reinforce them with bobby pins.
4. Smooth out bangs with an iron. For a final touch, add an accessory.
