Lesson 57: Sea Star

 The inspiration for this style came from Girly Do's By Jenn and her post called Flower Bun.
Begin with a ponytail.  Divide the tail into 5 even sections.  Add an elastic to each section about 2-3 inches (5-7 cm) down.
Split one of the sections beneath the hairband.
Turn the band to go through the loop.  It doesn't matter which direction, but it will look slightly different depending whether you go to the front or to the back.
Wrap the tail end of the hair into loops, keeping the ends at the back.  It helps if the hair is wet.  Lay the loops down against the head so the twisted part is straight out.
Put in some bobby pins to hold it in place.
Repeat with all the sections keeping the loops going in the same direction.
Here is a shot of the same style where I used mini clips to help hold it in place, and I turned it through the loop in the other direction (from the back).  This was some time ago when Belle's hair was medium length so there weren't so many turns in the loops, but it looks the same.
I posted two today, so be sure you keep scrolling down to see the other star style.


  1. We live near the ocean so this hair do would be awesome to recreate and where to the beach or grocery shopping or where ever our hearts desire.
