Back & Forth Half-Up

Here is a hairstyle that is similar to The Switchback hairstyle that we did a while ago but it's done just a little differently.
Start by creating a small, off-centered part on the top of the head.  Comb the rest of the hair straight down. 
Start by working on the left side of the head.  Grab a section of hair from the part down to the left ear.
  Comb it around the back of the head and over to the right half.  (Make sure you don't go all the way to the right but that you stay on the back area of the head.)  Grab a loose section of hair from that right side and combine your combed section in with it.  Secure it with a small clear elastic. 
 Now move over to the right side of the head and section out an area from the part down to the right ear.  Comb that across the back and over the elastic to hide it.  Combine it with a small section of hair from the back-left side of the head and secure it with an elastic. 
 Now grab one final section from the left side - right behind the ear and pull it over that last elastic.  Comb it across the head and combine it with a final section of hair from the right side of the head.  (From just behind the ear.)  Secure it on the back-right side of the head with a small elastic and then pull a bit of the hair from the section above it down over that elastic to hide it. 
The rest of the hair can stay straight down or you can curl it.  It's a very simple, yet elegant hairstyle.

Looks nice and I think this would be ok for a mommy as well, but it is slightly hard to follow and I think I lost you after picture 5... Anyway thanks for the great hairstyle, maybe I will figure it one one day!
