This style has lots of different names but in our house we call it a knot. This is my most basic do and it can be made up many many different ways. It can be used with long hair or short hair, thick hair, thin hair and everything in between. Fancy. Basic, Quick. Easy. You'll see once you've mastered this you will be using it all the time! I do and I love it!
Each of my girls has different hair and this works with each of them. K was my patient model here. K's hair is the thinnest, if you can call it that. It was curly when she was little but it all grew out. Enough reminiscing before I cry! Here we go!
I made a small pony tail on the top of K's head. The elastic is about an inch above her scalp.
I used a comb with the pointed end to stick through the pony tail under the elastic and made a hole.
