Step-By-Step Instructions:

Braided Bun

  1. Start by placing your headband on and leave around your neck.
  2. Pull all of your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
  3. Once your ponytail is where you want it, you can place your headband.
  4. Divide a small section of hair off your ponytail and clip it out of the way.
  5. With your ponytail, take a new elastic and wrap around your ponytail.  On the last twist, only pull the hair half way through to make a loop.  This will be the front of your bun.
  6. Take small section of your loop, twist it slightly and pin down with a bobby.  Continue twisting and pinning until you like how it looks.  This should be spread out to make the front half of your bun.
  7. Pick up the remaining hair in the back, roll it up and tuck into the elastic.  This creates the back half of your bun.
  8. Again, twist and pin the hair with bobby pins until you have created the back half of your bun.
  9. Pick up the small section of hair you divided off in the beginning.  Divide into 3 pieces and start a regular 3 strand braid.  Go back every few stitches and pancake the edges for a nice fluffy braid.
  10. At the end of the hair, secure your braid with a small elastic.
  11. Wrap your braid around your bun and secure with bobby pins.  Make sure to tuck your ends under and secure with a bobby pin.
  12. Finish with hairspray {if desired}.

Double Stacked Fishtail

  1. Part your hair down the center and put on your headband.
  2. Pick up your hair on one side.  Divide off a small section of hair from the inside (closest to your neck) and place out of the way.
  3. With the remaining hair, divide into two sections and start a reverse fishtail braid.  Section off a small piece of hair from the outside, cross under and add to the other side.  Alternate this process from each side to the bottom of the hair.  Secure with a small elastic.  Go back and pull on the edges of your fishtail to create add more volume.
  4. Pick up the small section of hair that you placed out of the way.  Divide it into 3 pieces and create a regular 3 strand braid.  Braid all the way down the hair and secure with a small elastic.
  5. Lay your 3 strand braid down the center of your fishtail and secure them together at the bottom with a small elastic.
  6. Take a couple of bobby pins and secure the 3 strand braid to the fishtail.  (see video for further instruction).
  7. Remove extra elastics from the bottom braid.
  8. Repeat steps 2 – 7 on the other side of your head.

Pull Thru Ponytail

  1. Put your headband on and place around your neck.  Pull your hair up into a ponytail.  If you have thick/heavy hair you may want to use two elastics to keep your ponytail secure.
  2. Pull your headband up and place where you like it.
  3. Take a small section of hair from your ponytail hair and wrap around your ponytail elastics a couple time.  Tuck the remaining hair through your elastic with topsy tail tool. If you don’t have a topsy tail tool, you can us a bobby pin to secure the hair around the ponytail elastic.
  4. Divide your ponytail hair into two sections: top and bottom.
  5. Divide the bottom section into two pieces.  Bring them up and over the top section, place them back together and secure with a small elastic. Go back and tug a little on the edges to create more volume.
  6. Repeat step 6 all the way down the hair.
