uh quite simple, hold the racquet so you can not see the string bed, your hand should form a v shape.
||<---racquet head(with no visible strings)

Assuming this is an overgrip (not a replacement grip), the process is fairly straight forward.
There should be an angled part on the strip of grip (haha that rhymes...) which kind of looks like it has been cut off (compared to the rest of the grip)
That part shoudl have a little piece of paper on it which keeps the sticky part moist. Remove the paper and place the angled part parallel to the base of the handle. This is important because this allows the rest of the grip to be angled as opposed to straight (don't know if that's confusing for you).
Once the grip is stuck on the bottom, proceed to wrapping the grip aroundn the handle. This is usually a personal part, because you can either wrap it fairly 'compactly' and have the endof the overgirp just reaching the cone. Or, my personal preference, wrap the grip fairly evenly (not too compactly) and have it end at the top of the cone. I like my grips on the top of the cone
Then use the supplied tape to secure the grip to the handle/cone/shaft; wherever it ends up. If you end up on the shaft, you probably will find that you won't use much tape.
If you require diagrams or pictures, I can provide you with some. I may have to regrip some racquets.

I did a search on the internet about this before and found a good little video clip.
It is generally recommended that when you start to grip the handle, you wrap the grip round one and a half times before you start to move up the handle.
But my advice is give it a go, it makes much more sense when you try it, and tho the idea can be a bit scary when you try it it's actually not that hard. Honest.

start at the bottom and wind up the handle towards the cone its not rocket science.
