Begin with clean, dry hair.  Using a side part, create a Dutch braid gathering the hair only from the top and work your way to the back of the head. Secure the end of the braid with a clear elastic.
Repeat a Dutch braid on the opposite side and work your way to the back of the head.  Secure the end of the braid with a clear elastic.
Make the braid appear larger by using your fingers to stretch open and loosen the braid. 
Gather the hair together to form a side pony tail and secure it low and tight close to the nape with an elastic. The clear silicone ones available at www.rickysnyc.com work great.
Divide the hair into three sections.
Fishbone braid each section and tie off the ends with a clear elastic band.
Take a small section of hair from the bottom of the braid and pull. This will create a rusching effect which makes the fishbone braid much looser and larger.
Twist and wrap each braid.


Form a spiral chignon and pin to secure.
