At the bottom of the hair comb, insert the pointed end of a rattail comb and use as a guide as you twist hair up from the sides and roll it back around comb. Carefully pick up small sections at a time as in the method of French braiding. Continue the twist until you reach the point of almost center back and pin to secure. Repeat on other side. Here hair can be combined and rolled up to meet in the middle as a perfect "U" or the twists could meet then braid, or place in a ponytail or an inverted one.
Long, thick hair is best for this style particularly if it is all- one medium length. Hair is brushed straight back and here combs were used to secure the starting points on the tops of each side.
