  2. Split the top section into three sections, separating the sides and the crown.
  3. Start with one side, slick it back with your moisturizer, flat twist it toward the back of your head, and pin it down.
  4. Slick, flat twist, and pin down the other side as well.
  5. Split the crown section into five sections and slick, flat twist, and pin those down each on the back of your head.
  6. Make sure all the twists are pinned down near or on the same spot.
  7. Unclip the bottom section and slick nape hairs.
  8. Bring up the bottom section as tight as possible, twirl the very end, tuck it in, and pin it down
