Messy Piggy Tails

I LOVE pig tails but I wanted a little variation so I added the messy buns at the base.
Part the hair straight down the middle. Pull up into pigtails but do not pull the hair all the way through.
On each piggy, pull out a section of hair from the middle. This will be the part that stays straight.
Add an elastic around the rest to make a messy bun just like I showed last week how I do messy buns. The hardest part is keep the long piece out of the bun - so grab everything but the straight piece. Instead of doing a messy bun with elastics - you could use bobby pins instead & pin around it.
I blow dried & FLAT IRONED the long pieces. I wanted them really straight.
Add your bows & you're all done!!

Although I do like the messy piggies . . . I am completely in love with the side by side braids. SUCH a cute twist on boring old french braid (which I subject my daughter to frequently). So thank you. That's all . . . I visit often, but I'm not much of a commenter unless I see something I absolutely love. Which I do!
