Parmida Kiani’s tutorial perfectly nails this ‘do. Here’s how the beauty guru did it:

  1. She applied a leave-in conditioner and hair oil on damp hair and let her locks air-dry.

  2. Then, she parted her hair in the middle. She grabbed a small section in front, got another section from underneath, and wrapped that over the chunk of front strands. This is a two-strand French braid—aka its uncomplicated sister.

  3. From the first section that you grabbed, add some more hair, and braid it over.

  4. Repeat the steps. Just keep adding more hair with every braid as you move down.

  5. When you’ve got the rest of the hair near the nape, continue rope braiding. Repeat the steps on the other side.  (Tip: Finishing with a regular braid at this point creates more defined waves.)

  7. Sleep on it and reveal soft waves the next day. Set it with texturizing spray for extra hold. Massage hair oil for extra shine.
