In brief: Hold your nose

The usual nose bleed can be controlled by pressing the nostrils closed, leaning the head forward, breathing through the mouth and holding the nostrils closed under gentle pressure for about two minutes.
Press the nostrils up all the way to the bone about one third way up the nose.
