Here he is with two, but he has all this stuff flopping around in the middle. I guess I should make three. I could also leave it loose, but I feel bad when he can't see.

Although he looks happy with 2 horns. It would be funny with 3.

He looks cute! I would do 4 bands..put the hair behind your current devil horns in a band so you have 2 or even 3 rows :-)

Also I learned with my girls to not put the bands too close to the scalp. When I gather the hair (and this gets easier when the hair is longer) just start your band 3/4 of the way down the hair. You will have a poop..sort of a bubble..and it wont be tight :-)

I am getting better, but now concerned about tearing hair, so I haven't been doing it tight. I am constantly picking bands up from the floor. LOL I suppose we are both a work in progress plus all of a sudden he seems to be getting TONS of hair. I guess he is slowing down growing and now putting energy into hair because I swear his hair has grown an inch in a month!

My groomer told me she uses a hemastat to put on the band and take it off. I tried it and it works well taking it off without pulling the hair out. But I am still trying to figure out how to twist the hair to create a place to put it on!
