I didn't get step-by-step shots, so I'll just do my best to tell you the order we used. To start, part the hair in whatever way you will want it fixed when done. We were going for pigtails, so I did a side angled part on top and a zigzag down the back. I put one side in a pony out of the way and started on the other.
If you aren't sure where to put the braids, try it first. Part out the sections and clip them, just to see where they are all meeting up. This way you will know where the ponytail is going to end up. You can braid all of the hair and the braids shouldn't get in the way of each other. But if you have trouble with this, you can hold the braids back with a clippy. I suggest an alligator clip (bow-free) because it will easily slide back out without pulling any hairs loose. I think I already mentioned it, but you'll want to start with the braids on the top/front and work your way to the back of the head and down.
