We were looking for an over-the-top hairstyle to go with this amazing collaboration with Steampunk Wolf Shop and a Micro Me. We came up with this! We start with 4 ponytails and attach a 1/4 of a bundle of braiding hair to each. The top ponytails are braiding into long braids and then pinned in buns. The bottom ponytails each have a 1/4 of the braiding hair added and then we used a small section to wrap the base of the ponytail, hiding the elastic. We then trim the ends bluntly and we’re done.
We were looking for and easy hairstyle that would be comfortable to wear all day and not get super wild or messy. We went with these simple braids using one bundle of braiding hair in this gorgeous rainbow ombré. The trick to this hairstyle is using hair gel throughout the hair on both the top and through to the ends. This will keep the natural hair neat without getting frizzy or fuzzy later in the day.
When you remove your Magic Mane from its package, and remove the gold twist tie, you will notice that the stretchy cord is at a very large size. Let’s size it to your girl’s head.
Place the stretchy on her head where she would normally wear a headband. The hair should fall around the crown of her head so that about 1/3 of her hair is above the extension line. Mark the correct size on the cord with a marker.
Use a pliers to gently open the metal bead on either side of your Magic Mane. With the bead open, you can pull the cord to the mark you made and then gently clamp the metal bead closed.
When you are satisfied with the size, and your girl is comfortable wearing the hair around her crown, you can clip the excess cord short. Easy-peasy!
