About: huge geek with a creative drive and too much free time

This is a very simple hair due that I love to wear because it's easy and fun. It works on medium and long hair, and you can do it on yourself, a doll, or someone else. I'm using an American Girl Doll=)

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need...
