This style is obviously not rocket science, but it’s a great one if your daughter is growing out her bangs or has a lot of shorter “baby” hairs up front. It’s also great if you want most of the hair down but don’t want it falling in your daughter’s face. And of course, the best part is it’s quick & easy and can be done on an 8 year old right down to your baby or toddler who doesn’t have much hair. Despite the simplicity of it, here is our step-by-step.
Step 1 – Make a side part
Depending on how many sections you want parted out on top will determine how far you should part back on the top of the head. We made our side part on the left.
Step 2 – Make a small ponytail
Part out a narrow rectangular section of hair. We did not part clear down to the ear. We just sectioned out a small piece on the top of her head. Secure with a rubber band to make a small ponytail.
Step 3 – Repeat step 2 & combine
Add the first ponytail into this second one and secure with another rubber band.
Step 4 – Divide off 2 more sections as shown above
Often we just make 3 sections, but she wanted the rubber bands to start and end with red and that they were the same colors as were in her dress!
Step 5 – Curl (optional)
We love styles like this because they can be for a casual day at school, or add curls for a bit fancier look and it’s great for church too!
