First, part your headband. I don't have a picture, but I secured the two sides of the head band under the hair with an elastic to keep it as a headband. Otherwise, it would constantly be in her face, falling out. Then pull half of the hair up & don't pull through all the way, leaving a small poof on her head.
Curl her hair with this CURLING TECHNIQUE. It took about 15 minutes to curl her hair all over. We actually went to a park this day to fly kites (lots of running) & when we returned, her hair was still curly & still looked cute.
We added some little clippies in the pony left over so it gave it some texture.
You can't see well in the picture, but we sprayed hair glitter all over in her hair just go give it that special occassion look - plus the glitter is her favorite thing so it's fun to pull it out once in awhile. (i bought mine at walmart during halloween time - not sure if you are still able to buy it since it's seasonal but check a hair supply store like Sally's)
