    This how to is designed to help you easily put on any hair falls or hair dreads that come on elastic bands, hair bands or ties.

    The first step is to make basic pigtails, a single ponytail or bun. How you chose is by the length of your hair and look you want.

    Using a single ponytail creates a super full look that looks great with a sash or band, like the blue example in the main shot.

    Pigtails can be worn to the sides for a fun and funky look like the purple falls shown. Or worn close together like this how to shows, for a full back look for those with short hair.

    You can also use a bun on top of the falls to give you a base for flowers, chopsticks or other decorations for Tribal dance.

    What ever look you chose start by making a ponytail or bun with an elastic band. While you can use the band on the falls as your base, I find this way the most secure.

    Note: Tabitha has a funky cut and was not in the mood to stand still so her part is terrible! A much nicer part is probably a good idea!

    Take the band for the hair fall or dread and slide it over the ponytail, put the fall over the top of the head and tighten the band from the bottom. For pigtails go over the side of the head opposite the direction it will fall.

    If you have a tie flip the fall over the same but tie at the underside of the ponytail, wrapping the tie and pulling tight. I find it best to go behind the elastic band as it gives it a better base to hold all day long.

    Note: If you are doing a bun or want the fall under your hair simply reverse this step.

Tribal Dance typically refers to Tribal Belly Dance or American Tribal Style (ATS) belly dance which is based on group improve. The costumes are very elaborate and layered with Hair Falls, tassles, jewelry and more.
