Flag Flare~Version 2!!!

So I thought of this when I did this last post with the beads. Sorry if the instructions seem short and to the point, but I really didn't have much time this morning:)

This picture really does not do this hair-do justice. We both loved it. Actually she usually likes these funkier ones better.

I started with a small ponytail up front on both sides. Then I did a pull-through knot in each one.

Then I hooked it into another ponytail underneath.



Do a pull through knot in the bottom 2 so it looks like this.
I made this with pipe cleaner and some beads. I made it the night before so the hair-do would be a quick one. This is definitely the fastest of all the fourth of July hair-dos so far. It only took about 10 minutes to make the flag and ten minutes the morning we actually did her hair. I just made the pattern to fit her head.




I twisted the pipe cleaner around itself to keep the beads in place. When I was done with the beads I cut off all the middle section of pipe cleaner so it was just the pieces i needed to wrap around the ponytails.

Slide the pipe cleaner under the pull troughs and twist around the ponytail until its secure.

Do this same thing on both sides.

Curl the hair under and that's it!!!!

I cant even get my daughter to sit long enough to put pig-tails in her hair and have them come out remotely straight. Wanna come to my house everyday to do her hair? ;)

WOW! Stopping by from SITS to welcome you...and WOW! I just scrolled through a bunch of your posts and I am AMAZED at your creativity! My daughter chopped her hair off a year ago, but we might be able to pull some of these off...fun!

Cool! Mrs. Hair-do-itis, you have way too much time on your hands...or should I say not enough sleep at night. I can only imagine how much time you spend playing with hair every morning. But, I am jealous, I wish I had a girl I could experiment hair-dos with.

Wow, your hair work is awesome and your daughter is gorgeous. I love all the stuff that you do. I hope I can do some someday when my daughter has more hair.

I was so amazed by all the awesome hair work that I forgot to welcome you to SITS.

Hey! I forgot to say on my comment, thanks for visiting my blog! Anyway, I love this hairdo, but my daughter doesn't have long hair any more. We cut it short this spring and donated it to Locks of Love. I'll have to look around and see if you have any short hair styles.

Wow, you have a great talent (and your daughter has great hair!). My little girl is only 1, I can't wait till she has enough hair for me to do some of this fun stuff to it.

I love the patriotic hair. Much more creative than just sticking a bow in her hair. Very pretty.
