Brinkerhoff emphasizes the versatility of the style, stating that it can be either dressed up or down, making it suitable for various occasions.

The process begins with creating volume in the hair by using a curling iron to add soft curls. However, the curls are kept loose, particularly focusing on the ends, to maintain a more relaxed look.

Brinkerhoff demonstrates a technique of starting at the nape of the neck and working her way up the head, combining backcombing, hairspraying with Kenra Volume Spray 25, and misting with Kenra Hot Spray 20 before curling each section of hair.

Throughout the styling process, she ensures that all sections of hair are curled in the same direction to facilitate the twisting process later on and to achieve a cohesive final look.

As she reaches the top sections of the hair, Brinkerhoff adjusts her technique to maintain a balanced shape, focusing on creating a rounded crown.

Once the hair is adequately prepped, she begins pinning the crown section, leaving the sides separated for the time being.

Additional Kenra product, Volumizing Spray Clay 15, is used strategically to add texture and volume to specific sections, particularly at the roots.

Brinkerhoff then proceeds to twist the hair, ensuring the sides are smooth while the twist itself is tight and centered.
