We were running a bit late for church this last week so we had to come up with a hairstyle that was fast!  We call this one "FAN"cy because it looks like a fan on top.  :)
Start by dividing the hair from one ear to the other and securing the top half into an elastic. 
 Now take a small section from that ponytail and bend it up in a horseshoe shape above the elastic.  Bobby pin it into place over the elastic. 
 Continue doing this with section of hair from the ponytail until all of your ponytail has been "horseshoed" and bobby pinned. 
You will end up with the ends from your ponytail hanging down over the remaining hair and a fan effect above the elastic. 
 Grab a hair clip to place over the bobby pins and hide them.  We've used some decorative hair pins here.  (Quite a few of them because my princess wanted them ALL in - you don't need this many to get the job done.)  :) 
This only took about 5 minutes to complete and we were ready to head out the door.

you have such cute hair clips! Do you make them all yourself?

yes, most of them - thank you for the compliment. These are super simple, just a pin hot glued to the back of a store-baught ribbon flower.

I am SO glad I found this site! I have a step daughter with long hair and I'm always looking for new and cute hair dos to do on her hair because I get bored of the same thing all the time. Your daughter's hair is beautiful and you do an amazing job. Thank you SO much for posting videos because I'm a total visual learner!
