1. Apply curl enhancing cream to damp hair and use a diffuser to bring out your natural texture.
2. Take a small section of hair from one side of your head and French braid it down to your ear. Pin it in place by criss-crossing two bobby pins where the braid ends.
3. Use a 1 1/2-inch curling iron to braid the bottom half of your hair. After you curl all your hair, pull the top section up into a half updo (include the end of your braid) and secure it with a clip or barrette.
4. Mist your hair with strong-hold hairspray to keep it in place.
