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.
