1. Braids

Gather a section of hair going from the temple of your forehead to the back of the crown of your head. Use this section to create a small Dutch braid.

Braid down to the bottom, tie it with a hair elastic, and tug at the sides of the braid to add volume.

Do the same on the opposite side, leaving a section of hair loose in the center.

2. Criss-cross

Take the loose hair at the center and pull it back into a half ponytail securing it with a hair elastic.

3. Add some sparkle

To elevate the look even more add a bit of razzle-dazzle. Take some sticker rhinestones and stick them on the braids and the rest of the hair.
