Step 1: Apply a nickel-size amount of styling lotion onto damp hair. Blow dry while using a paddlebrush to straighten two-inch sections of hair at a time. Switch to a vent brush for your bangs.
Step 2: Sweep your length back and gather into one hand. Braid loosely and tie with an elastic to keep in place. Tuck the ends in and pin the bun securely into place. Remove the elastic at the end of the braid.
Step 3: Spritz with hairsprayto lock in your look.
