Twist the ponytail around a largebun ring and secure in place with grips.

Step 4

Finish with hairspray to secure in place.

Baroque Maiden from Jean-Pierre Braganza

Step 1
Prep hair with mousse and rough dry.

Step 2
Create a centre-parting and divide hair into a halo section.

Step 3
Apply style dust to roots to add texture and lift.

Step 4
Clip coloured extensions to the front of each side of head and apply wax through mid-lengths to ends of hair.

Step 5
Take the two sections of hair from each side of the head, leaving the extensions loose, and twist the hair together to create two chunky braids.

Step 6
Once hair is all twisted, take the two coloured extensions and twist around both braids to create one braid. Secure in place at the ends with a rubber band and hold in place with hairspray.
