STEP 1:聽CREATE A LITTLE PONYTAIL

Grab a section of hair at the front of your head 鈥 it should be right about where you have bangs (or would have bangs). Secure it on the top of your head, as close to the scalp as possible, with a clear elastic band.

STEP 2: ADD A BABY BRAID AND WRAP IT UP

Next, form a small braid with hair in the ponytail you just sectioned off. Secure it with another clear elastic band. Then, take this lovely little look to the next level: Take a small piece of hair underneath the ponytail near the top of your head and wrap it around the clear elastic band. This will conceal the elastic band and add some fun flair to your 鈥榙o.
