Here are the steps to some of the most popular hair-dos.
1. Curl the hair with medium-sized curling tongs. It\'s best to start at the bottom and work your way to the top.
3. Take hold of three fairly large locks of hair from the sides and start making a French braid (see the Braidschool, p. 5).
4. Add fairly large locks to the braid and keep it quite loose.
5. Continue making the braid down the length of the hair.
6. Pull the ends of the braid. It works well to hold onto the end of the braid with one hand while pulling its ends with the other hand.
1. Divide the hair in two sections. Make a shallow side part at the front. If you have a light hair lock or a ribbon, by all means fasten it in the hair on one side.
2. Bring all the hair on one side over the ear and divide it into three parts. Braid the hair, with the lock closest to the face added first into the braid.
4. Take a small lock from below the elastic band and wrap it around it.
5. Pin the end down by placing a bobby pin behind the braid and pressing it. You can also use a small rubber band, which holds longer.
2. Put a hair doughnut around the ponytail and pin it down loosely.
3. Distribute the hair from the ponytail evenly over the doughnut and pin the hair against the doughnut. It works well to fold the hair into the doughnut to conceal the ends.
