Make a part from ear to ear (like a half pony) and then 3 square sections diagonally, across the top of the half pony.
Thread a ribbon through each of the elastics, making the ends the same length on each side.
Split the hair in half in each section and wrap with the ribbons. If you want hair showing between the ribbon more like this hairstyle, use thinner ribbon. If you don't want the hair showing at all, use thicker ribbon.
Split everything up as shown and make some pigtails in the half pony. At this point you could either leave it just how it is with her hair down. You could make some little buns with the pigtails. You could bring the pigtails together in the back, princess style. Or, you could make some pigtails with the rest like we did.
