After washing and conditioning your hair, remove excess moisture with a jersey or microfiber towel to keep your strands smooth.
Apply a smoothing heat protectant throughout, then blow-dry it. As you dry, use your hands to twist sections of hair, creating soft waves.
Once the hair is dry, use a tail comb to create a side part. Start on the side with the most hair and begin French braiding toward the back, leaving your bangs, or a few small pieces of hair at the front, loose. Once you've reached the nape of the neck, braid to the end of the hair and secure with a clear hair tie.
Repeat step three on the other side. Once you've got two braids at the nape of the neck, shape them into a low bun, using as many bobby pins as needed to secure it.
Pull extra wisps of hair from behind the ears and the side of the face loose to create a softly tousled finish. Mist your completed style all over with hairspray to eliminate flyaways and keep frizz at bay.
