Take a thin headband or make your own that looks something like this.


Tie the band on your forehead in this way.


From one side of your head, near your ear, take a section of hair below the band in this way.


Without making tangles, wrap it in the band carefully and tightly. Pull the entire wrapped hair downwards carefully and comb if necessary.


Take another hair section just beside the previous hair section you took and wrap it into the band again without making tangles, pulling it downwards again.


Take next section of your hair and repeat the above procedure carefully. This is how it looks. This is an image showing it done half way. Complete it on the other half too.

If you have shoulder length hair, then it will be relatively easier to do this. But if you have long hair like me, then you’ll need to wrap more number of times. If you have longer hair than mine, then it can be slightly more difficult because you have to find a place to wrap the hair.


Spray a good hair mousse. Having a good hair curling iron/ product is necessary! Otherwise your hair will straighten out the minute you comb it.


This is how it looks when you complete the wrapping.

This is the front view. Since my hair is long, the hair covered the entire circumference of my head. It covered the entire head with no gaps. I’m thankful that I’m not left with extra hair that I cant wrap into the band.

Do this procedure before dinner and leave it overnight so that you get much time to leave like this.
