1) Apply a light holding styling mousse all over from roots to ends for texture and seperation. Hair can be damp or dry. (If it’s dry, be sure it’s a light holding mousse or you could end up with a strong holding mess.) 2) Separate the hair over your shoulder into two pieces. The piece from the back should come forward and down 3,4) tie hair into a simple knot. 5.) Secure the two ends together using a clear elastic. Once it’s in there, slide it up underneath the knot to conceal it.

By doing this, you create the strongest support while hiding your bobby pin at the same time.
