Divide the top in 3 sections. Braid the 2 sides & leave the middle straight. Divide the middle in half & add to pony along with a braid crossing over it.
Do the same to the other side. Braid the piggies & flip the braid over so it is in half & add your elastic. I sprayed the ends a little so they flipped over the ponies & looked curled. You could use a curling iron if that's easier for you.
