Hairstyle Three: The Crest

Divide hair into sections

Pull hair through opening

Step Three: Loosen and separate the hair above the rubber band and pull the ponytail through and over the opening.

Curl and style hair

Step Four: Repeat this method on each ponytail. Curl and style the loose hair draped over each of the rubber bands.

finish hair with spray

Step Five: Finish the look with hairspray for all-day hold.
