-Duck Bill Clips
Step 1: Leave hair natural and feathered out.
Step 2: Add hair oil to provide shine and soften fly-aways
Step 3: Divide hair into 4 basic sections and clip off with duck bill clips
Step 4: Start with the section at the base of the neck – hold it out from the head, and using your hand, fold it over and tuck ends into the hair and pin.
Step 5: Do this with the next section of hair above the first section, but fold it the opposite way of the first – this will create dimension in the hair.
Step 6: Pick on of the side sections, and divide it into two more sections.
Step 7: Fold the lay one over the other, and fold them across the head, tucking the ends in and pinning as you.
Step 8: Use the last section of hair to lay over the top and across the back of the hair, folding across the hair, and tucking the ends under. Pin.
Step 9: Spray with hair spray.
