The Biggest Loser Hair

I was watching the latest episode of "The Biggest Loser" and saw a darling hairstyle on the host, Ali.  My daughter had a birthday party to go to and I thought it was a nice opportunity to give it a shot. 
Get the hair nice and wet and grab a small section of hair from the bang line.  Begin to French Braid it off to one side of the head. 
Continue braiding as if you were making a crown around the head.  Make sure that when you gather the hair on the top half of your braid that you gather just a little bit of hair from right next to it.  You want most of the hair on top to not be included into the braid.  When you get down to the bottom (right about the middle of the head) put a clip on the braid to hold it in place. 
 Comb all the remaining hair back to where the French braid has stopped  and then unclip the braid and add everything together into a ponytail. 
Grab a small section of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and braid it.  Wrap that braid around the elastic to hide it and then pull the ends through the elastic with your Topsy Tail. 
This is where they finished it on the show but my princess was going to an Alice in Wonderland party so we added a few more things. 
 We braided the rest of the ponytail and added some coordinating hair clips. 
You have to wear Alice to a Wonderland party!  :)

Wow! I saw that on the show and wondered how she had done it. Thanks for the info. Now I need to plan another party for my daughter to wear this too! Thanks.
