Something funny about this pink hair thing...Santa gave it to me in my stocking for Christmas, actually he gave me a whole stocking full of hair stuff. Silly as it sounds, this is the first time I have ever used it. Four and a half months later. Partially because I have alot of hair things and partially because I couldn't find anything that was the same color pink. Until now anyway. She just got this outfit about a week ago and when I brought it home I realized it was a perfect match!!! YEAH!!!!!! I was so excited. I wanted it to be a basic style so you could get the whole effect of the hair thing without it being overwhelmed by the hair-do (does that make sense?).
Here are the accessories that I used to do this style. A hair doughnut, and a pretty pink hair thing. I bought the hair doughnut at a local hair supply store. It might have cost $3-$4, but I honestly cannot remember. If you are super frugal...and do not want to have to purchase one of these I have seen people use a rolled up sock. Actually I have done this myself and only bought one because my daughter was telling people she had a dirty sock in her hair! LOL!!! It's funny now, but it wasn't when people were asking me about it. See here or here for the sock version.
separate out the top section of hair and twist it up leaving the rest of the hair hanging down.
Then while continuing to twist the sectioned out piece I wrap it around the base of the bun to cover up the ponytail holder. Secure this piece with bobby pins. You can easily leave it like this, but I chose to slip the hair thing around the bun.
TA DA!!!!! Okay, so if you made it through that extremely long post, for a not so difficult hair-do, you deserve an award.
