Braided Ball Chains

Jamba Juice is having a Buy one Get one Free Until July 12th, 2009! Click here for Coupon.

I hope you all had an amazing and relaxing fourth of July! We had SO much fun! It just happens to be one of my very favorite holidays! We didn't really do much in the world of hair though!


I wasn't really sure what to name this...so this is the name I came up with. This was a super easy hair-do and even my husband said he liked it. Which normally I have to sit and hound him and say "Don't you think her hair looks cute? It turned out So cute huh?" I swear he wouldn't even care if I didn't even brush it! Is my husband the only one like this?

I started with a zig-zag part down the middle.
Next I made a small ponytail from the part down to the back of her ear on each side.

Then I used the remaining hair and made pigtails on the bottom.

Using the top ponytails I made 2 braids in each and hooked them to the piggy tail underneath it.

Braid 4 braids in each piggy tail and hook them together with an elastic at the bottom.

Next I added 2 more elastics in the middle of the braids. Before adding the elastics I kinda poofed them out into a ball shape and then added the elastic so they would stay in this shape.

Very rarely do we not add any accessories, but she didn't want any in. She thought they would distract from her new earrings she got at the carnival! LOL How funny is that!?!?
I love this picture! It's my sweet little model!

Very Cute I will have to try this one for sure and NO your husband isn't the only one, I am always like HONEY don't you think her hair looks cute, he even told me that if he had to take care of them if I was gone they MIGHT get their hair brushed out but he wouldn't even put it up in a ponytail!! Lets hope I don't ever have to be gone from them!!

I would LOVE if my little 3 year old would let me put ONE rubberband in her hair.

sigh.

That is amazing...I had the mom who did the half pony tail to the side...that's it. This, is such an awesome idea for a blog, I love it!

Just saw you at SITS, so thought I'd stop by...glad I did!

Your "do's" are just amazing. I am still in awe.

I am glad to see "how to's" posted so when my 2 month old gets a little older, I will have some sort of help with her hair.

This is really cute. I only wish I had a little girl to do this too.

celeste said...

Those braids are pretty amazing! If only I had a little girl with lots of hair... maybe one of these days her hair will grow out!
I just read your message you left on my babybands.blogspot site and yes I would love it if you included me on your blog. Thanks so much!

Her hair is amazing and all I can say is my mouth dropped. I can't believe you are able to do that with her hair, I am so jealous. I have 4 girls and I can do basic hair stuff but nothing like that. You are amazing and she has amazing hair. Beautiful

I love your daughter's hair. So thick and dark and shiny!
I have a question. You said you have two daughters, "Sugar" and "Spice". But I've only seen one. Which one is the one we usually see? Is your other girl ever on the blog? (I'm not trying to criticize, I do like your blog.) -aemi <><

Wow, you are talented! I wish my daughter would sit still long enough for me to attempt to do anything more than a ponytail!
