  1. it looks so cute for soccer games or basketball games. Thanks! I really dont like using bobby pins on hairstyles, so… THANKS A LOT!

  2. Im 12 years old, almost 13 and I LUV LUV LUV this website!! I have it bookmarked on my ipod lol. When I got my topsy tail at claires in the mall the other day I was super excited 2 use it!!! Keep doing what you guys do! O yea and I luv this hairstyle 2 lol

  3. thank you sooo much my hair is thik and wavy and alot of mornings i cant do anything with it but this works its quick and easy too!!!

  4. I love all the things you do to with your daughters hair. I am going to try to do some to my daughters’ too. But… how do you get all these things undone? I can see me cutting her hair because I can’t get it out anymore…..especially the ones you do with the topsy tial

  5. This is so pretty, and something else you can try: at the end of your braid, you can do the same thing so that the elastic doesn’t show and it looks so beautiful. Also, you can braid the section that will go around the elastic, and it will look gorgeous (harder to pull through, though)

  6. By the way, I LOVE YOUR HAIRSTYLES!
    I forgot to mention it before. Your girls are so beautiful! God bless you and your family. You are doing such a great job with this site!

  7. If you don’t have a topsy tail you can get a piece of string, fold it in half and make a loop. Then, use it like in the video. It only works with this hairstyle, not the flips though. I hope I helped!

  8. Nice! Daddy approved here, super easy to put in, I didn’t have a topsy tail thing so I used a headphones cord and looped up through the hair band, worked great now she’s ready for her track meet. Thank you!

  9. hey
    i didnt have a topsy tail
    so i got a bangle and bent it to make an oval shape
    and it worked the same

  10. I bought one of these tools when I traveled to China and I lost them on the way home…arg. Sure I will buy it again.

    Your video are wonderful. I myself had problem doing this hairstyle with the poppy pins too but no more after watching your video.

    I really admire your family (hot husband, cute kids) alot. All best wishes to your kids, husband and for you, please continue to make more videos. You’ll always have our support.

    PS: I see your very attractive web banner “Donate a Do” and I am wondering if you accept donation from readers/watchers? If yes please let me know how.

    I just had to comment – this is so smart! I grabbed my little girl and tried it right away. I will admit – I copy your styles a lot! You have beautiful little ones. You can see my princess sporting some of your styles here: Let me know what you think!
