She starts by curling her bangs away from her face, twisting the curling tongs upwards and pinning two curls on top of her head – one to the right, one to the left.
Leaving the curls pinned in place, Ms Clarke curls the lengths of her hair, twisting each one around and securing it in place with a pin.
After spraying her head with hair spray, she pulls out the pins to let the curls fall gently over her shoulders.
Ms Clarke finishes the look by applying a pea-sized amount of $60 Virtue Labs Healing Oil, a lightweight serum that smooths hair and infuses it with a healthy shine.
The video has racked up 1,385 ‘likes’ since it was uploaded online on Sunday, with viewers raving about the simplicity of the look.
‘I want this hair,’ one woman wrote.
Another added: ‘The tutorial I didn’t know I needed!’
Many Sydney viewers said they would try the style this weekend to pass time as the Harbour City weathers its fifth week of lockdown to quash the highly transmissible Covid Delta variant.
Another 207 cases were reported in New South Wales on Monday as health officials again cut the wait time between AstraZeneca jabs to just four weeks to increase vaccination rates in virus-hit Sydney.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said 50 of the newly-acquired infections were out in the community while infectious.
Of the cases found in the 24 hours to 8pm, 83 were found in the city’s south-west, 53 in the west and 48 in the central Sydney local health district.
