I love how this turned out. But if you try it, you'll know why I call this "Carpal Tunnel!"
Start by making some twisting braids towards the front of her head. These are made by taking two strands of hair, and twisting each individual strand both in the same direction. Then, twist them together in the opposite direction. Make sense? Place elastics at the end, so they don't come undone.Now, you can pull them back into a ponytail with the rest of her hair.Braid the remaining hair in the ponytail into more twisting braids.Tie the braids into knots, leaving some hanging. (I like the messy look, but if you don't, you could put them more neatly in a bun and secure it with bobby pins.)
