Elsa's Icy Braid
1. Curl the hair with medium-sized curling tongs. It's best to start at the bottom and work your way to the top.
2. Lightly backcomb the hair at the top by the root.
3. Take hold of three fairly large locks of hair from the sides and start making a French braid (see the Braidschool, p. 5).
4. Add fairly large locks to the braid and keep it quite loose.
5. Continue making the braid down the length of the hair.
6. Pull the ends of the braid. It works well to hold onto the end of the braid with one hand while pulling its ends with the other hand.
7. Put a small elastic band at the end.

1. Put all the hair up in a high ponytail.
2. Put a hair doughnut around the ponytail and pin it down loosely.
3. Distribute the hair from the ponytail evenly over the doughnut and pin the hair against the doughnut. It works well to fold the hair into the doughnut to conceal the ends.
4. Pin the hair securely all the way around.
