This hairstyle appears complicated, but we guarantee that it is manageable. With several hair ties, scrunch up and tie off a few inches of hair, scrunch off another few inches and tie it off. Repeat 4, 5, or your desired amount of times depending on how long your hair is. Apply the same technique to the other side. Cross the two or put one right under the other. Loose waves work best for the loose ends.
