Start with 3 sections. The front is from ear to ear. The bottom is about 3 inches of the nape, and the middle is relatively round.
(Don't worry about perfect sections. You will just end up with a tousled look.)
Put the middle round section into a ponytail. Don't pull the length of the hair all the way through the last loop. Then make two loose braids out of the bottom section.
Criss-cross those two braids as you pull them around the base of your ponytail, and pin them by their elastics at the top.
Sweep all of the front section to the right, except for a small piece which you will braid. You can make that braid as little or large as you like.
Let the rest sit as loosely as possible, only pinning where necessary. This part needs a lot of hairspray. Seriously, you can't use too much! I've kept it in a clean wave, but as an alternative you could curl it more, for that more textured look.
Tuck in and pin the frontal braid, and you're done!
