Place the non-tapered end of the overgrip half an inch below the butt end of your handle, with the outside surface facing out. Starting the overgrip in this position will allow you to overlap it as you begin to wrap, thus keeping it firmly in place. Hold the end of the overgrip against the handle with your left thumb.
Hold the tapered end with your non-dominant hand and begin to carefully rotate the racquet clockwise, so the grip starts to wrap around the top edge of the racquet’s handle. As you wrap, apply light tension to the overgrip so that it lays flat.

Select the wrapping direction of your racket handle: To know the directions of wrapping the overgrip, follow the diagonal etching angles of your racket handle. Start wrapping your overgrip: Hold the overgrip and the racket in your left hand and the right hand, respectively. Keep the racket handle in the upward direction.
Step 6: Wrapping Your Overgrip. Hold the racket handle securely in your right hand while holding the overgrip in your left. With the racket handle still facing upwards, make the first wrap around the base of the handle. Continue to wrap the overgrip down the racket handle, moving from right to left at a downward angle.
Installation: Hold the racquet “upside down”, with the handle facing up, and determine the direction of the wrap. If you’re a right-handed player, the grip wrap should spiral down the handle from left to right; for lefties, it should spiral from right to left (if you’re a lefty and the grip is wrapped for a righty, replace the grip with one wrapped properly for you).
Keep the overgrip very taught to avoid wrinkles. After making one full wrap you'll begin to overlap and work your way down the handle. The overlap should be between 1/8" and 1/4". As you get more familiar with this process you will find what works best for you. The overgrip I'm using for this demonstration is angled at both ends.

Then remove the layer of plastic that is covering the sticky side. Make sure you apply the sticky side down onto the racquet grip. The cushioned side should be facing outwards that your hand grips to. It’s easiest to hold the racquet upside down with the butt of the grip facing upwards.
