This style has various names. You might recognize it as a French Roll or French Pleat. Those are two of the most common names, but I'm sure there are lots of others. Here are the steps you need to create french pleat hair style -
Brush out tangles from hair. Pull all the hair from one side to the back of your head and hold in place by criss crossing bobby pins vertically up the back of the head. This should help to keep your style smooth. Bring the hair from the other side to the back of the head and begin to form the roll. It is very important to keep the roll as smooth as possible. When this step has been completed, pin in place, covering the criss crossed bobby pins from the last step. The pins should be slid into the edge of the roll and completely hidden from view. Mist with your favorite styling spray.
