Step by Step Instructions

Start with a simple pony tail. If you want you can add some extra steps leading into this pony tail, but that is totally not necessary. Hold it in place with a colored elastic hair band.

Divide the hair in 2 sections. Top and bottom. They need to be about the same amount of hair. On the top section maybe 2 inches down put a small clear elastic band here too. I use the clear ones for this because one of my grand daughters has blond hair the others have brown. You will need a lot of these small bands. Although they should be hidden, you want to use bands that are not bright colored here so they will blend in and not be noticed. This video took about 12. Some are visible, but would really stand out if they were say red or yellow.

Now split the top to make a hole. Pull the bottom section through the hole. The bottom and top sections of hair trade places. Once this is done, go to the new bottom section and give a light pull to snug up the elastic. This is an important step because you want to keep it neat and also this keeps the design uniform.

Go ahead and repeat by putting an elastic on the new top section 2 inches down, make a hole and pull the bottom section through again.

When you reach the end of the usable hair, just blend both sections together again and secure it. You can use a regular elastic band or one of the light weight ones.

If desired you can kind of pull the sides just a bit on each bump section to change them into a more flat look instead of the more rounded rope look they have normally.

The process shown can easily be done in 10 minutes as long as you have all the supplies ready when you start.

This is a simple method of glamorizing oneself. It is great for general appearance but also has the advantage of controling hair. Wind won't bother this 'do. Hair is off the neck and helps you be cooler. This model even slept in her's and they said she looked the same the next day without any fussing so this could work for multiple days. This can be worn just to keep the hair under control while playing, or to school, work and even more formal settings like weddings and such.
