Accent Braids, Elastics, Ponytails

Elastic Accents for Ponytails

August 15, 2016

Ponytails are by far one of the easiest hairstyles to do and I love finding ways to spice them up a bit.  I love doing elastic accents on the top or the side of my girls head before I put it in a ponytail.  My main reason for doing elastic styles like this is to hold all of their baby hairs out of their face.  My girls have so many fly aways and shorter hairs that won’t stay in a regular ponytail, so styles like this really help :).  Plus they stay put all day long!  Perfect for school, dance, sports, and just playing around!

Here are a few of my favorites!

Ladder Elastics into a ponytail.  I actually saw this style on one of my friends daughters and loved it!  Such a creative, and easy, way to add an accent on top!

Knotted Elastics into a Ponytail.  This is one of my all time favorite styles!  I was inspired by Sheer Braided Bliss on Instagram.  Check out the video below to see how I did it!

Another Knotted Elastic style!  I did this one on top of her head and put the elastics a little closer together, so the knot is a little tighter.

I LOVE this elastic style!  I started with a small triangle, and then made the partings going outward.  Super cute!

    I am super excited to try these for school! My daughter wants her hair cut short again, probably chin length, so I won’t be able to do the ponytails but the main parts I will be able to do. It will be nice to have some different options for her. I think we will try the ladder one first.
