This hairstyle is one of my favorites!! It holds really well because of all the elastics and it is also super pretty. Enjoy!

Step 1: Brush Hair

Start with the hair throughly brushed. For some added texture use dry shampoo or curl the hair.

Step 2: Make Small Ponytail at the Top

Take a small section of hair at the top of the hair and tie it off with a clear elastic.

Step 3: Make Another Small Ponytail

Gather two pieces of hair from either side of the head and tie them on the top of the first one. Make sure to smooth the sides.

Step 4: Split the Ponytail

Split the ponytail in two sections. Then grab the middle section and hold it out of the way.

Step 5: Tie the Two Sections Together

Pull in hair from either side of the head and add it in with the two sections from before. Join them all together with a clear elastic.

Step 6: Repeat the Steps From Before

Then take down the top section and split it in two and pin the middle out of the way. Next gather hair from either side of the head and join it with the two sections. Then tie off with a clear elastic. Keep doing this all the way down the head.

Step 7: Pancake the Braid

Once you get a few sections done, pull on the sides to make it seem bigger and thicker.

Step 8: When You Get to the Bottom of the Head

Once you get down to where you can't add hair from the sides any longer, keep doing the same thing but without adding hair.

Step 9: Tie Off With Clear Elastic

Step 10: Enjoy!

This style can be worn in so many different ways. You could split the hair in two and do pigtails, you could make it as an accent braid with just a small part of the hair, or you could even do it upside down up into a bun. Have fun recreating!!
