Before I start this post I realized my pictures were not the best. If anyone wants me to provide better instructions e-mail me or leave a comment saying so and I will re-create it with a better step-by-step. Sorry and I hope it makes enough sense:)
This was done the day after this hair-do. Which made this go by super fast because the braids were left in from yesterday's do. Go check it out to see how this Hair-do originated.
I started with these 9 braids. She slept in them so they are a little frizzier than I would like but I am not about to re-do them either.
Pull the braids out of the way and clip them together.
Take the remaining hair and put it in a side ponytail.
Un-clip the braids.
Start with the braid in the middle and grab the braid next to it. Wrap them around each other.
Then I grabbed the braid on the other side and did the same thing.
Do this with all of the braids. The pieces on the right side I hooked into her ponytail with an elastic. The second to last section I put an elastic in to hold it's shape. When you get to the last braid on the left side you will need to tie the braids in a knot.
After you tie the braids in a knot add an elastic at the bottom of it to keep it's shape.
Take these last 2 sections and tie them together in a knot.Then hook them into the ponytail.
See how on the right side I also put an elastic in the last section to hold it's shape?
Then I put her hair in a messy type of bun. Then I added my hair thing and it was done. The instructions make this seem like an extremely long hair-do, but it took me under 10 minutes.
Close-up of how the braids are wrapped around each other.
Back View with a messy hair thing!
I love doing this...if for nothing else all of the pictures I have taken of her cute smiling face!
