Option #1: Part your hair. Then separate two pieces, from opposite sides of your head.

Option #2: No part. Separate the top layer of your hair. You want to make sure that you have a pretty decent chunk of hair. You'll figure out the amount that works for you once you do it a few times.

Stick your finger in the free side, pushing it gently against your head. Fasten it with two bobby pins: one in the top and one in the bottom. Take out the clip from the other side and repeat.

Mess with both sides of the bow until they look good. Then make a hole behind the ponytail. Take a piece of hair, put it through the hole, and bobby pin it down, wrapping it up and around the middle.
