Do the Back First
Taking smaller pieces from the back section, begin by twisting and curling pieces with your hands, using bobby pins to secure them flat to the back of your head as you go. The trick is to make them look like a tight bun made of smaller curls. Also, use only as many pins as you absolutely need; the product you use should help hold everything in place without you needing to give yourself a headache.
