Starting on the left side of the head, lift a section of hair out of the way to back-comb the underneath side section that rests just behind the ear. The teased section will serve as the anchor for the bungee cord hair tie. Repeat on the right side.

With the flat iron, take a top section of hair midway down between the ear and bottom of hair ends and grip the hair with the iron. Slightly flip the iron up to make a small ridge. Then create another ridge, just below, in the opposite direction.
