The How-To's:

Start by pre-parting the hair into 3 sections. (1) The crown, (2) Below the crown to top of the ear, and (3) Top of the ear down, aka the remainder. (Note that you can change your sections to fit your style. RiRi has shaved sides and parted accordingly.)

Next, take section 3, smooth and secure into a thin ponytail holder where desired (left, right, or middle.) Lightly curl with the barrel iron, then loosely pincurl until bun is complete.

Repeat for section 2, placing the ponytail on the same side as the previous section. Smooth and secure, barrel iron, and loosely pincurl.

Finally, for section 1, comb hair forward and towards the opposite side of the face as sections 2 and 3. Starting from the ear up, barrel curl the hair, then create one large pincurl rolling towards the face. Discreetly secure with bobby pins.

Keep short hair in place by applying a dollop of hair pomade to hold in place.

Spray a spritz and shine product on hair and Voila!
