1. Part your hair, wherever your part happens to fall naturally.

2. We’re starting with the weave-braid-ish thing at the top. Grab a chunk of hair from either side of your head, I took mine from the vicinity of around/right above my ear. Give each chunk a couple of twists, maybe spritz with a little water or product if your hair is especially slippery, and then cross them, right over left, in the back of your head.

3. Grab two more chunks, this time from lower–I did behind/below the ear. These will make the second/lower weave and basically hold your ponytail in place. Twist them a time or two (i find twisting them–but not supertight, just once or twice–gives the braid a little definition.) and spritz. Cross these over the same way you did the first ones, with right side on top of left side, and then combine them with the first two chunks. You should now be holding a piece of hair in your right hand, a piece of hair in your left hand, and still have a lot flowing free at the nape of your neck.

4. Now we’re going to make the ponytail. You can do it two ways: use a ponytail holder, whihc will be covered up by the crossed-over pieces, or just use your hair has the ponytail holder. If you are using a ponytail holder, gather the remaining hair and make it into a low ponytail, below the crossed-over stuff we did before. (Probably easiest to have a friend do this while you hold your crosses in place still.) Then, wrap the ends of your crossed-over-pieces around the ponytail holder by crossing the one on the leftside, underneath the ponytail and then across the top, and then cross the right side underneath and then back over top. Cross them both under again, combine them, and use a bobby pin or two to hold them under the ponytail. (TO do this, put the hair in the bobbypin and then push the bobbypin upwards, or upside down, into the ponytail holder. by aniellabrooke

curl hair in mermaid waves, make two large messy/loose braids to connect around at the back of head. Now take the left side of your hair hanging beneath the braid and pull it over and then under to the right of the leftside braid. Viola! Now your hair sits prettily to the right, mermaid loose wonderfulness! You can do on left side if you like your hair to sit there more than the right side. (: by GinkyDoodles

1. This style is so easy, it's laughable. Day-old hair is best (which is true for most hairstyles, since it's easier to work with hair that has a little dirt in it).

2. Divide your hair into three equal parts and quickly spray each section with a little hairspray to help give it hold. Let the hairspray set for a couple seconds, and then lightly comb it out.

3. Take the section on your right side, and twist your hair all the way down to the end. You want to twist counter-clockwise, toward your face. Wrap the right section in on itself, just like you're making a little bun. Let some of the hair stick out, it's ok (you don't want them to look like Princess Leia buns).

4. Pin the right bun in place. I like to use these mini bobby pins, since they're easier to hide and they're coated in rubber so they hold your hair better.

5. Next, twist the middle section clockwise and pin. Then twist the left section clockwise and pin.
