The bottom half of the middle ponytail on the side will be combined with the top half of the one closest to your ear. Continue to combine the halves of ponytails on each side of the head until it forms a diamond shaped pattern.
Once all the ponytails are split and combined together to form the highlight pattern, bring all of the strips of hair together and tie then into a ponytail underneath the first ponytail you made at the top of the head. Carefully make a space above the elastic on the top ponytail and pull the bottom ponytail up through it so the hair cascades out with body and style. You might like to accessorize it with a pretty clip or even a flower.
