My daughter came up with the name for this one and I have to admit that it does kind of look like a dog bone! Pull all the hair together to make a ponytail but only pull the hair half way through your elastic. Separate the part that is through the elastic into two side and then wrap the extra hair (which wasn't pulled through the elastic) around the middle of the two pieces. After you've wound the hair as much as you like, put another elastic around the whole bun to hold it into place. You may want to use some bobby pins as well but we didn't and her hair held all through school. We also left some little ends hanging out the bottom but that's totally up to you.
