UpsideDown FrenchBraid

I totally remember going to my sister & asking her to do an upside down french braid on my hair for school & I would flip my hair over the bed & she would frenchbraid away. Then with the end of the tail - she would tuck it back into the braid. Well - I decided to do something pretty close to it. Don't mind the unmade bed (sheets are being washed:) This would be really cute for church...umm might have to do it again for tomorrow!
I had her flip her head over my awesome unmade bed.
French braid away - going as far as you want. I went a little more than half way on her head.
Flip her head over & pull all of the hair into a ponytail. My girlie's is a high pony tail because I wanted to make sure her curls were on top of her head.
Curl the pony & pin it so the curls are on the top of the head. By doing this - the french braid is much more visible - which is what we want to see, right?

No matter how much I study your hair tutorials and try the hair do's on my little girl (same age as yours)... IT DOESN'T WORK. Its frustrating because I know I am crafty and creative... just not with little girl dos... SAD FACE
:( YOUR LITTLE one has much longer hair then my daugthers, who also has natural curl too. That may be half my prob. Love your creativity!

I did this do today except with a messy bun on top and my girly loved the way it looked! Since she has ballet today, I thought it would be perfect. I had done this a long while back but had forgotten about it. Thanks for the reminder.

Love it! I've done this hairstyle now a few times on my little girl, except my french braids don't look that great so i do an inside-out braid instead! :D

We did this one on Saturday. I didn't wet my daughter's hair down - I was just practicing, so it was a bit fly-away and fell out by evening, but it was fantastic. We did the upsidedown french braid - I - ah - didn't read your directions carefully so I braided ALL of her hair, so the top was a bit loose and messy - just a little. Then I used about 1/2 the hair to make a messy flower bun. The rest I curled and bobby pinned to the side to be ringlets down her head - attaching a flower over the bobby pins. We went shopping at Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics and Ulta salon and got TONS of compliments. Several teenagers seemed to be scoping it out - it would be a great prom do. Thanks SO much it was really fun. I'll try it again the right way and see how long it lasts!
