I should apologize in advance for these pictures because I took them after my princess had been playing all day instead of right after I got her hair done. The hair looks much messier after some time in the McDonald's Play Land. :) First you want to start with a crown of 5 elastics around the front of the hairline. Divide the hair from each elastic into 4 sections. Separate 2 sections to each side and weave them through hair from the next elastic. Attach the woven hair together with a second row of 5 parallel elastics. Then you can combine the remaining hair into a ponytail, braid or bun.
