If I do this again, I'm going to start with tying the ribbon into a knot on the top elastic, I think it would look better that way.
If any of you have "Trash Tie" or "Knot Heads" hair accessories, they would work great with this style. You wouldn't even have to tie a knot or use an elastic on each section. You could just cross the trash tie over the section and start on the next one. I wish I had one to show you what I mean, but I don't.
Anyway, I did another style similar to this, only with thinner ribbon to give you another perspective on it. I'm scheduling it to go out next week.
