NEW INSTAGRAM/SC: ari.ftz Follow your girl!❤️ FAQ section down below :) HEY LOVELIES! (Almost at 400 subbies, LET'S GO GANG!) You like? Drop a like, a comment and Subscribe! Don't forget to share :) Continue reading for more important info... Just started my instagram and snapchat accounts! Follow your girl @arie_fp Here's how I created a kinky straight, blunt cut bob using... 1. X-pression kanekalon braiding hair (less than 1 pck) 2. Hair elastics/rubber bands (the soft ones) 3. A crochet needle Did I mention I only spent $5?? And depending on your local beauty supply store, you may even spend less! I know the video is long, but the tutorial lasts for less than 6 minutes...that's how quick and easy this style is.The last few minutes is just me going over some important details you may want to know. Btw, my hair is natural, but in this video it had been flat ironed a week prior to the crochet install I should have mentioned in the video, that when I searched to see if this style was already created, I found that there are videos with the rubber band technique! I just couldn't find if there are any with this kinky straight look. P.S. Thanks Jazz Nicole for the inspiration!! Check out her videos if you haven't already I'll see you soon with more content ;) ________________________________________________________________ FAQ Q: How long does this style last? A: I suggest leaving it in no longer than 2 weeks. I don't think it's good to leave your natural hair out any longer than that...don't want it getting dry Q: Can this hair only be worn down? A: It all depends on where you make your leave-out Q: Do the elastics break? A: Mine have not. But that is only because I doubled and trippled them Q: Is your hair natural or relaxed? A: I'm all natural baby!!! Q: Can this style be done using different texture extensions? A: Yes! Just make your hair match the texture of the extensions Q: Will I be making more videos, showing different styles using this method? A: Yuh don kno! Leave your suggestions in the comments section ;) *Please remember that I am NOT a professional hairstylist. I just have a huge LOVE for hair. This technique still needs a lottt of improvement, but I figured it would be more fun if I brought you hair lovers on this journey with me. You guys are the best! Your support means the world to me* ________________________________________________________________ CHECK OUT MY OTHER CROCHET RELATED VIDEOS - Individual Knotless Crochet (Marley hair): https://www.youtube.com/watchv=2ETgwHrgOMA&lc=z12vv3ug3mq4infnx233fzawnymksh2zn04 - Undetectable crochet twists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWhG6jADLNY - DIY lace crochet twists wig: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaw1Spt4NHw&t=2s -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTACT US: [email protected]

Your personality alone just gained you a subscriber. The way you MacGyver and slayed that straight braidless crotchet gained you a student. Great video! 💁🏾‍♀️❤️
Ari and Ela (5 months ago)
Thank youu!!! ☺️❤️
Nthatile M (7 months ago)
Can you do one with conrows and without a leave out?
TSK ELI (8 months ago)

Mary Dorsey (11 months ago)
I love all the styles on here. Make me want to try them.
Dishani Lakmali (1 year ago)
Can I put it in a ponytail??
Ari and Ela (1 year ago)
Only if you leave out hair around the perimeter of your head ;)
Cutie Breeze1 (1 year ago)
I just want to say thank you for this wonderful tutorial this is amazing. I know it takes like 4 hours down to like 2 hours but you your amazing. I'm tired of buying synthetic wigs that are two thin and don't kast. I can get synthetic hair and create my own weave which is bette4 then a wig once it's done it saves time and your done
Ari and Ela (1 year ago)
So glad I could help! Thanks for watching 😊❤️
Priscillaq Wilson (1 year ago)

I really can't see because it's sooo dark. I think I have the idea... but maybe bright colored elastics for the tutorial would have been easier seen.. I really like it but I can't see ittt .. you look so beautiful !!!!! ❤️❤️

Heather Bailey (1 year ago)

Melanin Kay (1 year ago)
Hi girl hey!!! u just got a new subbie. I can't cane row and I'm very creative. so I thought of doing this. but then I was like haven't seen this on YouTube! so I went and got it checked out. ur the only one I've seen do it like this. All the best sweet heart!!!
Lele Boss (1 year ago)
what kinda lipstick is that 🤔 u and the lipstick are very cute but nice tutorial
valloriya (1 year ago)
Hold up. This works because you straightened your natural hair first but what happens when it reverts to kinky. It's not gonna blend (I ain't talking about the leave out)
Ari and Ela (1 year ago)
+valloriya My hair usually reverts after 2.5 weeks; that's when I'd take down the style
valloriya (1 year ago)
Does this stay?

Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Doneen Johnson Thank you soooo much!! ☺️💕
Deneazra Burns (2 years ago)
Horrible lighting 😔
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Deneazra Burns I know 😔 that's why I had to invest in some lighting equipment after making this tutorial. My following videos using this method are well lit 😉

Sierra Mannie (2 years ago)
does your natural hair need to be straight to make this texture work?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
Sierra Mannie Great! Thanks for watching 😊💕
Sierra Mannie (2 years ago)

IAM Corbi (2 years ago)

Yacky Snacky (2 years ago)
rocky brocky (2 years ago)
can you do the same method on straight hair? last time i did all the steps right and my hair was still showing.
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+rocky brocky Hey girl. Whatever hair you choose to use must match the texture of your natural hair. When I straightened my hair (as it was in this video), I had to use X-pression extensions because it was a perfect match. So, in sum, the textures of both natural and synthetic hair must match...think of it like clip in hair extensions. Hope this helps
ultimatecouponlady (2 years ago)
You skipped the most important part!!! The blow drying and styling!
Omgggg I have a pack of hair laying around and I'm going to try this. And then I'm going to try to flexi rod and see how it turns if. Love it girl😍😍😍😍
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Brianna Christina Bolger Go for it girl!! I love the flexi rod idea. I hope it turns out great 😊😊 tfw!
Gaelle Joly (2 years ago)
Thank you! You are the only one who did individual chrochet braids straight! I saw ones with curly hair. But it is reaaly nice technic, I was searching for my next hair style, so thank you so much !
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Gaelle Joly Yay! I'm happy you like it 😁😁 Thanks so much for watching luv! 💕

+Candy Heartz Check out my video with the Marley braiding hair, I show a little demo there :)

love peace (2 years ago)

Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+benotdecived2013 Heyy, thanks for watching and subscribing! Check out my Marley Braiding hair video, you'll see more clearly how I did the front. I honestly can't remember how many boxes I made, but I think I had around 6-8 in the front row. I'll also be posting a video with another style tomorrow, so stay tuned for that! 😊
love peace (2 years ago)
how did you box the front sides .. how many boxes on top do you think please
love peace (2 years ago)

coilyme (2 years ago)
Thank you! Thank you! I can't cornrow, so you just saved my life. Going to try this now!
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+coilyme LOL! Glad I could help 😁If you run into any problems with exposed elastics, leave some rows of leave-out like I did in my Marley Braiding hair video (it's so much easier that way). Thanks for watching!! ❤️
Talia_ Ess (2 years ago)
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Talia_ Ess NICE! 😊🎉💕
Tamara Harris (2 years ago)
What color is your lipstick, it's gorgeous?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Tamara Harris It's actually a combination of Prestige "spice" liner, essence "hot chocolate" liner, a Kate nude lipstick and some concealer...and maybe I added something else lol. I'm always combining a bunch of shades on my lips
It's called the rubber band method of your looking to find others who have done this. Did a good job keep it up
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+the holiday innerdepthsofbeauty Thanks! 🙂
Chanika Wheeler (2 years ago)
april casey (2 years ago)
i wish you could have went in more detail about the front. but thanks for the tutorial
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+april casey Check out my video with the Marley braiding hair; I go into more detail there 😉 thanks for watching!
Chauntelle (2 years ago)
it would have been helpful if you showed the elastic bands you uses
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Chauntelle I forgot to do a close up on them. But I'll show them in my next video 😉
Ana Fleming (2 years ago)

Bri Miller (2 years ago)
where you get your glasses from??
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Bri Miller My sis got them from Costco🤓😁 they're prescription
Moon Orchid (2 years ago)
it seems unsecure though is it just like one night temporary thing
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Moon Orchid Once you double/triple the elastics, it's secure. It can last longer than a week, but I think that's long enough because you don't want to leave your natural hair out too long
Black Barbie (2 years ago)
this looks really good girl. i totally am interested and maybe doing this to my hair cause i just need new styles. my question is like once you do the knot from crocheting it. how do you hide it and so that it just looks good as yours in the video. because yea. yours just blends. it looks natural. so please let me know. thanks! 😍
Black Barbie (2 years ago)
AriEla Dynasty thank you. darn my fault I got excited and missed the ending. that helps and I will check out other video
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Tyshonna Halbert Hey Hun! I'm glad you like the style 😊 I hid the elastics and knots two ways: #1 I used the knotless method at the top of my head (if it's too difficult to see in this video due to the lighting, check out my latest video using the Marley braiding hair) and #2 I used my natural hair as leave-out in between the boxes to hide all elastics/knots. I explained how I did it at the end of this video because I ran into some issues with elastics showing. BUT check out my latest video, I figured out a (less ghetto) way to hide them 🙂 I'm referring to the rows of leave out I made in between each row of elastics. Hope this helps! ❤️
Anastasia Tiara (2 years ago)
I think Sadora Paris has the same method except with box braids. idk who thought of it first or if there are other but i like this method
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Anastasia Osborne Hey girl! I actually saw the video you're talking about. She used the #jazznicolemethod (Jazz Nicole was the first person to ever come up with it on YouTube). I was inspired by her and put a twist on it by using elastics instead for ppl who don't want to do individual plaits 🙂 Thanks so much for watching!!
Ms Niambi Ayanna (2 years ago)
Girl yasss I love your video 😍 and I love your voice over lol you just seem so chill!!! I might try this style for one of my videos nice and simple!

CLAUDIA TROTTER (2 years ago)
I have been trying to figure out how I could use this rubber band method. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I would use it as a protective, style because I would connect my ponytail with rubber bands in smaller sections and use the crochet needle to add the hair. I can't wait!!!
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+CLAUDIA TROTTER Yasss! You got me excited for your idea lool 😄😄❤️

wont the elastic bands break
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Qui W Nope, once you double/triple the elastics they'll be just fine 😉
ChigoziluE (2 years ago)
LOVE this method and LOVE your lip color in the beginning of the video!!! What shade and brand is it???
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+ChigoziluE Thank you!! And it was a mixture of Essence hot chocolate liner, Prestige spice liner and Kate nude lipstick (shade 42)

Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Taryn S I'm sooo glad that I could help!! Thank you for watching + commenting ❤️
Gabrielle Ether (2 years ago)
I've never seen it done quite like this before...Never with one pack of braiding hair...and never with real hair left out...that was the difference in all of the other videos that I've seen...so I think that this would n considered an original idea...very good idea...Im definitely doing this bc sometimes we need our hair done and it falls between a broke period and I can afford 5$ so thanx for this 😘 very creative.
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
Thanks so much! I'm glad to hear it :) <3
FlyyFingaz_ __ (2 years ago)
How long did this last?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Brittany Williams I ended up taking mine out just two days after because I had an event to go to where my hair needed to be in a sleek ponytail. But, I really think that it would have lasted for about 2 weeks...longer or shorter, depending on how well you maintain it
Juanita Harris (2 years ago)

Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+Juanita Harris Yay!!

Pris Blessing (2 years ago)
Hello Ari ! Does this style work on natural hair? Are you natural or relaxed?
nwigbo Josephine (2 years ago)
thank you very much, but the front is confusing. apart from the removed hair to create parting ,did you pick up the entire hair for crochet?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+nwigbo Josephine Hey girl, thanks for watching 😊 As for the front, I explained it better in my newest video. The lighting is a lot better too. If you still have questions after that, don't hesitate to ask again
hazeleyezluv (2 years ago)
Is the new video of this here yet?
hazeleyezluv (2 years ago)
AriEla Dynasty Ok thanks!!!
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
hazeleyezluv Yes it is 😊 I used the same method, but with Marley braiding hair instead
PM R (2 years ago)
great idea you need to redo the video it's impossible to see
Josine Umulisa (2 years ago)
AriEla Dynasty
PM R (2 years ago)
Ok thk you
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
PM R Thanks :) check out my latest video, I redid it using Marley braiding hair
The Pelham Family (2 years ago)
Wow now that hair style i could do all on my own! Super easy and looks great! Buuuut I'm natural sooo i'm not sure how i could achieve this look? Have you ever tried it using curly weave?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
+The Pelham Family Exactly! No problemo 😊😊
The Pelham Family (2 years ago)
Oh so i just need to flat iron my hair to make it blend. Ok yea i can do that! Thanks girl!!
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
The Pelham Family You definitely can do this on your own :) And I'm also natural, so I had to flat iron my hair for this style. I've never tried curly weave, but I did try Marley braiding hair on a fresh braid out in my newest video
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
I redid the video with better lighting, as promised :) It's different hair, but the same technique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ETgwHrgOMA
Ms P (2 years ago)
how much hair around the edges did you leave out?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
Ms P Np! I didn't plan on putting it into a ponytail, so just the front 🙂 But I strongly suggest you do thin rows of leave out in between each row of boxes so you don't run into the same issue that I did (which I mentioned at the end of the video i.e. exposed elastics). If you don't know what I mean, you'll see it in my new video which I will be posting in a few hours 😁😁
Ms P (2 years ago)
AriEla Dynasty Thanx! is that 1/2" all around the whole front edge or around the whole head including the back?
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
Ms P Just a little under 1/2 inch
I'm going to to try this style toi
this style is brilliant, thanks. my hair is natural kinky curly, I think I'm going to try this method with Marley hair, thanks so much :)
+AriEla Dynasty oh great!!! l can't wait, thanks :)
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
I actually just finished editing my latest video with this method using Marley Braiding hair! I'm gonna post it in a few hours, and I promise the lighting is a lot better :) I'm so happy you're going to try it
NaturallyCrazyCurls (2 years ago)
I can't see it.
Ari and Ela (2 years ago)
Brighter and better video coming in a few hours! I promise the lighting is a LOT better :)
