Step-by-step hair tutorial:

  1. Start by adding in hair styling cream (if you have it)
  2. Part the hair down the middle.
  3. Take a small section on one side and add an elastic and then topsy tail it.
  4. Repeat on the other side.
  5. Take the 2 sections and bring them together and then wrap them around the middle section of hair (you’ll see how I do it).
  6. Hair elastic the sections together underneath and then bring the remaining hair down.
  7. You can add a ribbon or a bow, whatever you like!

Again, I just love this hairstyle. It’s so easy and simple and really comes out looking nice. I think it’s just a great overall hairstyle for any occasion.

Hair Products To Use on this Hairstyle

Here are the hair products that I used for this particular hairstyle.


These are the Teenitor hair elastics I’ve been using lately. I was recommended to use them and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Victoria’s hair is on the thicker side, so I need to make sure I have hair elastics that will hold the hair and be extra durable. I also want to make sure the hair elastics won’t damage or crease the hair.

best hair elastics

  • Strong and stretchy: The elastics are not so thin that they break when you try to stretch, but they are not so thick that you can’t stretch them properly. They have stayed in very fine, soft hair through days of gardening. Also, they slide off the braids when grabbed and pull off clean. No rolling and catching the hair to make knots.
  • Great deal: This is a great deal on 2000 pieces clear rubber elastic hair bands, enough for braiding different hairstyles. You can keep a couple dozen in your purse, another couple dozen in your gym bag, some in your car…you get the idea. Any time you realize you need a hair tie, you’ll have a stash.

The best part is that you get 2000 for under $7!

It’s the one question I get asked the most lately, and I love it. It’s important to make sure you prep the hair before you create a hairstyle. I love to use hair styling cream because I know it will help to keep the hair smooth and shiny.

I prefer using Dae Hair Styling Cream.
