Step one: Split your hair into three equal sections. The plait each section and secure with your hair elastics.

Step two: Take each plait and roll it up and pin in place.

And that's it! I didn't prep the hair or finish it with hairspray, you can just style and go; don't try to be too neat with it. This look will work great on straight, wavy, curly and afro hair you'll just get a slightly different effect depending on your hair type.
