From the temple, gather a chunk of hair and separate into 2. Twist and pull another bunch from under it and wrap around. Continue on (like a French braid twist with 2 pieces instead of three). Do the same on the other side. I used a clip to hold one side while I did the other. Pull all hair into a band at the nape of the neck. Twist and roll hair around. Clip to secure. This took about 10 minutes. I used hairspray as well.
