You Will Need
- At least shoulder-length hair
- 1 A comb
- 1 A teasing comb
- Bobby pins
- 1 An elastic band
Comb your hair
Comb your hair to get out all the tangles.
Make a side part
Part your hair to one side.
Separate a front section
Take a two-inch-thick piece of hair from the front of your head, on the side of the part with more hair. Section it off, and pull the rest of the hair on that side behind the ear.
Lift the section of hair, and back-comb it with the teasing comb.
Roll it into a barrel
Pick up the teased section from the end, and roll it backward, creating a barrel. Secure it to your head with bobby pins.
Repeat with a section of hair on the other side of the part.
Make a ponytail
Grab the remaining hair on both sides from just above the ear and pull it into a mid-height ponytail.
Twist the top half of the ponytail, the part closer to your head, and pin it at the elastic band.
Take the remaining loose end of the ponytail, wrap it around the elastic band, and secure it with a bobby pin.
Loosen the ponytail a little and pin the sides. Add flowers for a fun finishing touch.
