First take the headwrap around the head, from the back of the head then tie twice infront. Then take one tail from the tied knot and twist, then wrap it in a clockwise direction around the tied knot to form a bun. Then take the other tail of the tied knot and twist it like the other tail. Then wrap it around the tied knot infront in an anticlockwise direction to form a bun, then tuck it. Done

NB: Bun can be placed from the side(left or right) or just in the front.
