French braid with a little cover

She had just got done crying in this pic, so her eyes are puffy.

First I started out parting the hair in 2 different sections. The first one from the front of one ear to the front of the other. The second part is from just a little behind one ear to just behind the other ear.

Take the middle section and french braid it all the way across.

Now, put the front section into 4 ponytails. These are the "little cover".

Pull the front ponytails back into one low ponytail in the back. Add your accessory, and you are done! Very easy.

French braids with a headband

Here is my baby girl with puppy molly. I really wanted to keep her. She was our last puppy left. But, unfortunatly my husband thinks 3 dogs are enough. She went to her forever home just this morning. :(

Okay, now for hair.... :) First part the hair across from ear to ear. I actually made the part just behind the ears.

I sectioned the top into 3 sections and french braided them straight back, stopping when I got to the back part. I didn't braid the sides.

Instead, I took the sides and secured them together underneath her hair at the nape of the neck.

I twisted the ponytail from each braid into buns by twisting the hair until it started to curl into itself then twisted it around the base of the ponytail.

I liked how this headband looked in it. The buns also help the headband from sliding off of her head.

The next day.....

Remember this hair do from the other day? Well, She went to bed with her hair still up. Thanks to Daddy! The next morning the braids were still perfect.

So, I just took them and did a simple weave into twisted buns.

I left a little extra hair out of each bun and ratted it. Then I spread it out so it went all around the bun.

Two types of braids

I just love this picture of her. She hasn't been in the best of moods lately(because she was sick), so seeing her smile is great.

I started off by parting her hair across from ear to ear. I put eight ponytails along the front of her head.

I rotated putting each ponytail into a regular braid, twist braid, regular braid, twist braid and so on......

I pulled it all back into a low side pony. added a bow and all done.

A down-do and bow holder

The kids are starting to feel better!!!! So Julia asked me to do her hair, I was thrilled! OK, I first parted the hair Straight across from ear to ear.

Then I made another part diagonally.

Working to the right of the diagnol part, I put in 3 rows of french braids, following the part. Then I went to the other side and did 3 more rows of french braids starting at the part and going down.

I twisted the 3 left braids together, and the 3 right ones together.

I twisted the 2 twists together on the left side. Add a small bow.

This is my first attemp at making a bow holder. I just bought the pre made wood princess sign, and an acrylic paint set from the dollar store. Then I hot glued the ribbon to it. Having somewhere to put all of her bows is GREAT!

sick babies

I just wanted to let everyone know why I haven't posted anything lately. All 3 of my kids are very sick. They have a fever, vomiting, and so on. I barely have time to sleep. Julia still gets her hair done everyday because I just can't stand it when her hair is a mess. I will be posting soon. This too shall pass! Also, I am going to try to post a video tutorial on how to do twist braids. I just need someone to hold the camera.

Braided pigtails

Everybody in our house is getting sick! Oh, no! This is why Her eyes are so red. She will be sick by tomorrow.

Now for hair. Start by parting a "box" in the front. And another part straight down the middle of the back. Put the back sections into ponytails.

Part the front section again into 2 equal sections. Braid each of the two sections.

Pull braids back into the ponytail on the same side.

Braid 3 braids into each ponytail.

Now take the braids and flip them up. Secure them with an extra elastic. I put bows to cover the elastics. Then I used molding wax and ratting on the hairs above the bows.
