3 messy piggies

Wow!! I think that's the longest I haven't posted something new. I'm so sorry to those who are waiting for a new idea. I was gone for 2 weeks & I'm finally getting back to the routine of things. But it's not slowing down with Christmas right around the corner. It gets so hectic!! We have to get a babysitter 4 different times this week!! & I'm sure life is in the fast lane for everyone right now. I'm pretty proud I squeezed in time to post this. I've been thinking of some new things - if I can just get some more time added to life:)

Here it is:

Start by doing the tuck under knot
I hope you can see from this picture, but I sliced the hair down from the tuck under not down to her ear. This is what started my inside out french braid.
As part of the 3 sections to start the braid, I used the half of the tuck under knot for one section & divided the other part in half to give me 3 sections.
Do the braid on each side, just braiding down a few strands.
Divide the rest of the hair into 3 sections. Put into messy piggies. As I was pulling the hair up, I split each end of braids in half so that one half went into side pony & the other half of it went into the middle. Do it with both sides - so the sides don't have more hair than the middle. It makes it more even. Spray to hold. If she would have let me - I would have added 3 cute bows, but she's kind of getting to that stage where she doesn't want her bows in anymore. So bummed out!

You don't know me; but I've been following your blog for a while. I think this is my favorite I've seen. I have a 2 month old girl and can't wait until she has hair!!

So cute, I'm totally trying it tomorrow! Glad you're back! I've had to resort to my own creations and they just aren't as fun.

cute! I'm going to try this one this morning.

I was also wondering if you could do a post on messy buns/pigtails just so I can get an idea of how to make one. For some reason mine always look to neat. :)
