I started with a part slightly to one side. Whichever you prefer works best.
Then I took a small piece of hair on one side and added it to the braid.
I did this one more time adding 1 more piece from each side.
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!
