I wish that I had tried Rubber Band hairstyles earlier, because they're incredibly easy (which is important!) They end up being very pretty and take a minimal amount of time to do. Here's the first one I ever tried.
I got the steps of how to do this here. It's actually pretty simple. Once to do it once, you pretty much get the hang of it.
I know, the rubber bands don't match her outfit. Never use bright green elastic bands unless you have something to match them! Ahh well I went and bought clear elastic band right after this to fix that problem. I used them in the next rubber band hairstyle I did on her.
I don't know exactly what I did, but it was fun to do something original. I started with 3 ponytails twisted on each side in the front. Somehow I connected them and ended up with four rubber bands at the end and did a four strand braid, then tied them, then put the flower, then pulled up the rest of the hair in a low pony tail. I actually did a twist braid with the low pony tail, but it got pretty loose because I don't use product in her hair but I just left it! Anyways I had a fun time creating this one!
And the new clear elastic rubber bands were perfect because then she could wear the ponies the next day as well, and it doesn't matter what color her outfit is (this was a 2 day hairstyle :) They were much better then neon green :)
