    Pull the larger loop of the styling band to the left side of the head. Create a “figure eight” shape and fold the band in half, creating one, double-looped band.

    Using the fingers, separate hair above the ponytail binding into two equal sections. Pulling along the nape, pull both sections toward the ears, creating an empty space between the scalp and the styling band.
