Step by step instructions:

Half-Up Rope Twist Buns

1. With a middle section. Pick up a section of hair from the front of the head and divide into two parts.
2. Turn each piece down and then back in the opposite direction.
3. Take new hair and add it to your 2 pieces.
4. Put each piece back together and then back in the opposite direction.
5. This time just add new hair to the top strand of your rope twist. Turn each piece down and then in the opposite direction.
6. Continue your rope rotation until you reach the back of the head. At this point, stop adding new hair and finish the rope, turn some extra stitches and secure temporarily with a pin or rubber band.
7. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the head.
8. Once you have reached the back of the head with the second turn, combine it with the first turn and secure it with a small rubber band.
9. Go back and pull on the edges of the rope turn to give a little more volume.
10. Divide your ponytail into two parts and create a rope turn.
11. Once you have reached the bottom, go back and pancake the edges of your turn to create more 12th volume. Secure your rope twist with a small rubber band.
Wrap the rope up and around it to create a bun and secure it with hairpins.
13. Go back and pull on all edges if they need to be adjusted. Ready with hairspray {if desired}.

Twisted Dutch Braid Ponytail

1. With a middle part, take a small section of hair from the front and divide it into 3 pieces.
2. Take the top piece and cross it under the middle piece. Take the front pieces and cross under the center piece.
3. Choose a small piece of hair for this stitch and add it to the top section before going under the middle.
4. Take a small piece of hair and add it to the lower part before coming under the middle.
5. Add new hair to the outer pieces for a few more stitches and then stop adding new hair to the lower part. This creates a Dutch lace trim.
6. Continue with a Dutch Lace Trim until you reach the back of the head. Go back and pull on the edges of your braid to create more volume.
7. Temporarily secure your braid with a hair clip or small rubber band.
8. Repeat the Dutch lace border on the other side of your head.
9. Once you have reached the back of the head with the second plait, combine them together and secure them with a small rubber band.
10. Cut hair from each side behind the ears. Lift the middle section and make a ponytail, secure it with a regular rubber band.
11. Pick up one of the remaining front pieces and turn it backwards. Wrap your turn around and around your ponytail, then secure yourself with your ponytail with a small rubber band.
12. Go back and gently pull the edges of your spin to soften them.
13. Repeat the twist on the other side, this time wrap your twist twice around the ponytail to hide all your rubber bands. Secure with a small rubber band.

Fishtail top knot

1. Start by spraying and work in some dry shampoo to give the hair a little extra texture.
2. Pull all your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a rubber band. (My ponytail was on top of my head)
3. Take one strand of hair from the ponytail (about 1/3) and divide it into two pieces. Make a fishtail braid with a small piece from the outside of section 1 and cross under adding to section 2. Take a small piece from the outside of section 2, cross underneath and add section 1.
4. Put your fishtail to the end of your hair and secure with a small rubber band.
5. Take the remaining hair and divide it into two parts. Pick up a section and turn all the way to the end. Take a small piece of hair at the end and pull on it, and push the rest of the hair up to the top of the head. Pull on the edges of the twist to set it and then secure with bobby pins.
6. Pick up the last section of hair and repeat the twist & slide to create the second half of your bun. Safe with Bobby Pins.
7. Pick up your fishtail braid, wrap it around your bun and attach it with hairpins.
