“You take a little piece of hair,” he explained, “section it off – from the corner of the eyebrow – and go all the way to the back [of the head].” Pop that section of hair into a bun on the top of your head. This will give you the room you need for the magic to happen.
Then, take a half centimetre section of hair at the hairline and braid or twist backwards, pulling taut. “Find the bit that makes your eyebrow go up; braid those and put an elastic at the back and get a bobby pin,” explains Murphy. “Twist until you get the desired result and it’s an instant facelift.”
Secure the section tightly at the back of your head with a bobby pin or clip. Repeat the same process on the other side, making adjustments where needed to create a symmetrical look.
Take your hair out of the bun and lay the top layers of your hair over the twists, concealing all of your handiwork – et voila!
