While folks can get pretty pedantic on the subject, there's no one "correct" way to wrap tape.
Either wrap top down finishing with a plug for a very clean finished look, or wrap (as i do) bottom to top and finish with a tape strip so the shingling is in the right direction and the edges are less likely to curl.
I've seen showpiece spiral and "woven" tape jobs done with two rolls at once.
It's your bike, fee free to express yourself.
