Flipping the tail

2. Flip the tail 

Flip the tail of the tied-together strands upward into the parting beneath your chin.

Wrapping hair

3. Wind one strand around the other

Wrap one strand tightly around the other. Pull it first through the parting to hide the rubber band and then wind it tight around the other strand. 


4. Secure

Use a bobby pin to secure the wound strand of hair.

Placing strands behind head

5. Place the strands behind your head

Pull the tied-together strands over your head so it rests at the back of your hair.
