I started by sectioning off the hair in 4 sections. I purposely did it a little angled, so do it however you want. Once they were all temporarily tied back, I pulled out that small bit of hair in the front, got it nice and wet, and tied a square knot. (at least I think it was a square knot...) :)
Pull everything together in nice little pigtails, curl away, and either leave down (I was tempted to do this- it looked really cute) or just pull up in messy buns like I did. Cute and easy. Not super fast though- it took about 15 minutes.
