I can only see the first one but the hair style isn't completely shown there. :/

A few of the step-by-step images work, but all I see is a sectioned-off ponytail. Kind of little to go on. Do you have a good, working, image of the total style?

The first one was the only one I could see as well, but my internet was being pretty slow at loading things on that device. OP, please feel free to update the links! (You just can't hotlink them them, but links to the site are totally cool with us in general)

The pony tail is divided in to four and then tied in some kind of knot and the loops are not pulled all the way tight.

Whoa, I just keep getting distracted by how far this model's lips and chin are to the right (her left) of her nose.

I guess you would start with two high twintails that leave out the fron portion of the hair. Then put these in sort of looped buns and work the front hair into it. I dont know that much about chinese hairstyle but it sure is like a japanese geisha updo in a way, which i have many video tutorials on. Its all about the position of the hair before you tie it and it certainly is easier to do on very straight kinda non bendy hair, so you might wanna use a product to ensure a certain firmness like the wax that is traditionally combed through the hair.

Found more pictures here, the step by step however doesn't actually seem to cover all the steps.. http://beauty.hualady.com/20130227/102854.shtml

Looks like one ponytail, divided into two (for sure), then each two-part divided more to create the loops. I would just try and get creative, not necessarily copying this style, but doing something similar.
