Add a twist to the one-sided braid: Part your hair on one side, then gather a thin section along the hairline from the heavier side. Split it in two and start twisting the pieces around each other, adding in a piece of hair from the top every other time, like you would a French braid, says Cucinello. Keep twisting until you reach just past your ear, then secure with a bobby pin.

This is good idea. I'm just guessing how this was done. She put braids on each side behind the ear, then overlapped braids, and secured with hair pins underneath. Make a bun on the bottom. Hair spray all over. Will try it sometime to see if my guess is correct.
Totally trying this! Split and braid your hair into two sections and tie with a rubberband. Twist the braid away from your face and then twist the flat iron onto your hair in the same direction your hair is twisted. Do not touch rubberband or else you will get that weird crease. Repeat this process twice! After hair is cooled, then take them out and run your fingers through the braid. Saw this on Rachel Ray Show.

NY CHIC Level: Intermediate (only because you have to braid sideways!) Best for: Any length, straight or wavy hair Step 1: Make a slight side part. Step 2: Do a tiny (and we mean tiny!) French braid from the scalp down the side of your head. (If it's going awry, start over. This time, find and work with the section of hair that falls naturally where you want the braid. Braid in that direction.) Step 3: Pin the braid in place a few inches above your ear.
