Elastic Pony Crosses with Laces

This is another one of our favorites!

I started with the part down the middle. Take it all the way down, like you are making pigtails. Put one side in an elastic while you're working on the other side. I think it makes it easier if you complete one entire side first, then start on the other side. Hopefully you can figure this one out by looking at the finished product, I didn't take pics along the way.

Basically, just make two rows of ponies on each side of the part, crossing and adding the previous ponies all the way down.

I added the ribbon last. Thread it through the elastics, like you are lacing a shoe. Tie a double knot at the bottom, so it doesn't come undone.

I loved this for the 4th of July, with the red, white, and blue. So patriotic!

  1. OMG, I love this! My daughter will be wearing this tomorrow.

  2. This is so great! My question is how do you get each section so perfectly parted? When I do Carmen's hair each section always looks uneven. Never as perfectly parted as yours do. What kind of comb do you use and product too?

  3. McGees and Hottons, I just use a regular comb. (A plastic one with the teeth smaller on one end.) I know some people use a rat tail comb to do parts, for some reason I can't get those to work for me. Sometimes I have to re-part a section several times before I'm happy with it. And, don't look too closely!!! My parts aren't always straight either. For the products: I hate to admit it, but I'm VERY cheap. I use Suave and Equate hairspray and gel. Equate also makes a detangling spray that I love.

  4. That is really really cute!!!!

  5. LOVE IT!!!

    I can't wait to do this for my daughter's hair for church on Sunday.

  6. This is not a hairstyle... it is ART! I am so impressed, and I can't believe that my daughter is almost five and I have never thought about using her pretty little head as a canvas! She is so thrilled!
