1) Section the hair into a middle parting. Using some small rubber bands make a square shape at the front of the head and tie into a mini ponytail - one on each side.
2) Create a second 'square' behind one of the first ponytails and take the first ponytail made diagonal to the parting of hair you are working on and tie the original ponytail into the new ponytail. Repeat on the other side of the parting.
3) Repeat process 2 as many times as you like. You can use coloured hair bands or just plain ones which match the colour of your child's hair.
