After blow-drying your hair, lightly mist Oribe Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray  ($33) for shine. Next, section your hair into three parts and curl each with a one-and-a-quarter-inch iron. Back-comb the hair at the root.
Take a section of hair from one side of your face and pull it loosely to the side of your head, twisting toward the back. Secure it with a bobby pin.
Repeat that step on the second side and secure with a bobby pin.
Take the top section of hair and wrap it into a loose circle. Disguise the pin by weaving it in and out of your hair.
Repeat the previous step with two more sections: one underneath and slightly to the left of the first circle and the other slightly to the right.
Finish with a spritz of hair spray, like Bumble and Bumble Spray du Monde  ($15).
