I love how super simple this hairstyle is, but more so – that you can do this on your own hair, too. I’ll be honest, many of the hairstyles that I do on Victoria, I would have a little trouble doing on my own hair. This is one that I’m (super) excited to share can easily be done by yourself on your own!

Hair Products We Love:

1. I love love love using these hair ties. These are fantastic for keeping the hair from creasing and they don’t damage the hair either.

2. I love using a leave-in conditioner spray on Victoria’s hair before I start. I just like to make sure there aren’t any tangles before we get going.
