You Will Need
- Unwashed, ponytail-length hair
- A comb
- A teasing comb
- An elastic band
- Bobby pins
- Hot or Velcro rollers, or a curling iron (optional)
- A bristle brush (optional)
- Decorative pins, flowers, or ribbons (optional)
Comb your hair to remove any knots. Remember that hair is easier to work with if it’s not freshly washed.
Tease your front hair
Grab a one-inch-thick section of hair from the front of the head. Back comb it, and flip it forward.
Continue in sections
Grab a one-inch section of hair right behind the first section, back comb that, and flip it forward. Continue until you reach the crown of the head.
Tie a high ponytail
Gather all the hair into a ponytail at the top of your head, just behind the crown, and secure it with an elastic band.
Pin the pieces
Take a one-inch piece of hair from the ponytail, bending it underneath to make a loop, and pinning the end of the loop at the elastic band. Repeat until all the pieces are shaped 360 degrees around the band.
Dress it up
Add decorative pins, flowers, or ribbons around the hair or on the sides of the head if you like.
Frame the face
Pull a few front pieces loose to frame the face.
