Netted Overlay

Here's a pretty hairstyle and I love it because the netting is so fun and we haven't done netting for a long time.  Have lots of little elastics handy.  It's fun to pick a color that coordinates with the outfit if possible. 
 Start by creating a part from ear to ear that is only about an inch and a half from the bang line.  Now that you have that section of hair you can divide it into 8 equal sections and secure each with an elastic.  Comb all of the remaining hair straight down. Take each of the little ponytails from your sections and divide them in half - except for your section closest to each ear.  
Starting on the right, combine the whole section closest with the ear and the right half of the adjacent section together with a new elastic.  (About an inch farther back on the head.)  Now combine the other half of that adjacent section with the right half from the following section.
 Continue doing this around the head until you come to the far left where you will make sure to include the entire far left section with your final elastic.  Start on the right again and repeat the steps - making sure to add in the whole section closest to the ear.  You will have fewer and fewer sections as you move farther back on the head and your side should slowly start to come together towards the back.  
Once you are down to 4 elastics/sections go ahead and create a flat 4-Strand Braid.  Your netting should lie on top of the remaining hair that was combed straight giving it that "overlay" look.
