I'm back

I'm back from my little 2 week vacation spending time with my family. So that means back to reality...sigh. Oh well- school starts soon & fall is right around the corner so we have lots to look forward to. I know I'm constantly posting side ponies - but I just love them. They are too cute.

Here's another side pony:
Start by splitting the hair about 2/3 of the way down, right in half. Add 5 elastics evenly on the bottom.
Twist them all together. You have to split each of the ponies in half so it can be part of a twist on each side (except the end pieces - I didn't divide them at all) So you come out with 5 twisted ponies.
Going off of my part (which I slanted - again I LOVE slanted parts too:), I sectioned off the rest of the hair into a pony right in the middle of the first 2 lower piggies. Include the twist into the pony above.
Do your next section, adding the twist from below. After I added that elastic, I brought over the piece from the left side & added another elastic so I have a section that is not only coming up, but going across. Do it all the way through. On the last section, I brought all the hair into the side pony.
Curl the pony & add a cute bow & you're finished!!
Front view: (a little too cheesy but atleast she's finally smiling for me)

I am just loving your site. I am a mother of 3 girls (AHH!!), I just love your ideas and always look forward to seeing what new things you've come up with. You inspire me to even try different combinations you've posted previously.. My oldest has short hair and ears that somewhat poke out, what can I do?

I love your blog!
Im getting married in November and I want a cool hair idea for my daughters hair ( who is also my flower girl.) she has shoulder length hair and I hate the way it looks when its down...do you have a cool idea to do her hair for a wedding do?

Amy said...

First of all, I have to say that I just adore your blog. Your daughter has some amazing hair. How do you get her to sit still while you are doing her hair? My little gal used to let me do whatever but now, I can't get her to sit still to even brush it.

You are always so creative!!! Thanks for all your ideas!! I use them in my daughters hair all the time and ALWAYS get compliments on how her hair looks!

Dial Fam - my little girl's ears actually stick out a little bit & it used to bother me - but now I just think it's cute & part of who she is. If her hair is short - you can simplify styles & just keep the hair half up & do something cute with it!

Sherilyn - I'll try to come up with some quick ideas for school.

Amy - we do her hair in front of the tv where she will just sit & watch the entire time I do her hair. Give treats, books or toys to keep her entertained too.

I just had to leave a comment and let you know how much I LOVE this hair do. I have done this on my daughter multiple times now and we always get lots of compliments. I have been on a side pony kick and have done lots of vatiations of the ones you have on your blog.
Thanks for sharing!!!!
