So the look im going for is something like this:
But after a test run this week I realised my hair is so flat and does not have the body to pull it off with this much flair.
Here is what mine looked like. (didnt get a side view but there is a braid along the side of my head…)
The curls did not hold more than 2 hours…
Any ideas as to how to add a little more oomph to my hair?
I also found this picture which I want to try next. More a from the side braid than from the top of the head.

Did you spray yourhair with hairspray before curling? Use curling iron instead of hot rollers? Dirty hair holds curls better and longer.

Tease, tease, tease your hair to give it extra body.

@Samantha24p: I sprayed a ton of hairspray…but it might not be the right kind. I will have to look into that. I did use a curling iron and applied moose before and hairspray after to each curl… i should maybe consider trying the dirty hair trick.
@Bride7844: If I tease before I do the plait will I still be able to make a braid? Or do I do it after the braid is done to add body to the rest of the hair?
