The pony tail for LONG hair...
First, very simply, put your hair into a pony tail. I must use a stretchy head band instead of a regular hair doey because my hair is so thick. Next, "split" the hair just above the pony as if you were going to flip it...you are, just not yet, so you don't want the pony tail to be tight and taunt against your head as you would usually.
You may wonder why that whole process of braiding and unbraiding was necessary...let's just say it makes looping all of that hair a LOT easier, and keeps the whole style from being loose and floppy...it makes the end result more snug and a lot less knotty!
Hope you enjoyed :)
