Step-by-step hairstyle:

  1. Start by taking a small section of hair on top and hair tying it. I like to grab a section from the top and anchor on the side.
  2. Take this section and divide into 2 sections.
  3. Braid each one of these sections.
  4. Take the bottom section and evenly divide in half and create 2 low pigtails.
  5. Bring those top 2 braids down and anchor into one of the lower pigtails.
  6. You can add ribbons or bows here! Whatever you want!


As you can see, this is an easy one but it really does come out looking so darn cute! I love this one for a special occasion where you can really have some fun adding some pretty color ribbons or bows into the hair.

Hair Elastics

It’s probably the question I get asked the most from people, “What hair elastics do you use?” I love these hair elastics so much and have been using them consistently for the last few months. They come in various color options, too, but for this hairstyle I used the clear ones.
