Partial French Braided Piggy-Tails

This is my niece Kaia! It was fun to do her hair! She was laughing almost the whole time!!! She said I was making funny faces every time I took a picture of her. Who knows....I probably was. She is just not use to someone taking her picture while doing her hair!!!


It is quite different when you are doing someones hair that is SO different from the hair you are use to. Ya know?


I started with a part slightly to one side. Whichever you prefer works best.

Then I made a small part on one side down to her ear, and braided about 1/2 an inch.


Then I took a small piece of hair on one side and added it to the braid.

Then I did the same thing on the other side. Notice I am only using small sections from the sides and leaving the rest down?!?! Does this make sense?


I did this one more time adding 1 more piece from each side.

I repeated this on both sides of her head, then tied those pieces off with an elastic. Then I took the rest of the hair that was left down and parted it in 2.

I made 2 regular piggy tails with this hair.

Next I took one of the braids and twisted in towards the other side of her head.



Connect the twisted piece to the piggy tail on the opposite side of her head.

Repeat the same thing on the other side.

Add your Hair Bling...or hair accessories to the piggy-tails to cover up the elastics!

And as always I like to end with a front view. Hopefully she will come back soon so I can do her hair again....I'm thinking sleepover:)

Very cute. My niece's name is Kaya too (just spelled differently).

I know what you mean about being used to a certain type of hair. My daughter's hair is so thin, and when I do her cousin's hair (which is super thick), I'm like..Wow, this is weird. :)

Beautiful braids! God knew what he was doing when he gave me all sons! My husband has to comb their hair--all their cowlicks just confuse me. I love braids, though!
