Since Kathleen has long thick hair, she uses a size medium hair clip, but for most people smalls work the best!

Step 1: 

Pull hair back into a ponytail

Step 2: 

Twist half of your hair around into a bun

Step 3: 

Stop twisting your hair when half is in the bun and the rest is on top of your bun

Step 4: 

Take the pin of the Flexi Clip and put it through a bit of hair on the top right side of the bun

Step 5: 

Slide the pin of the Flexi Clip over top of the bun and along your scalp. Once on the other side, secure the pin in the loop of the Flexi Clip

Finished! Super-Cute!
