To diy: * First backcomb your crown section to give it some height, don't worry if it's messy, that's the look. * Next, take the two front sections of your hair and twist them, and as you do, collect all the hair from each side your head, so you're left with two ponytails. * Finally collect all your hair at the nape of your neck and twist into a bun before securing with bobby pins! * Spray with hairspray to give it some hold!

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.
