Start the braid on either side of the head.
Begin inside-out french braiding down the head - making sure it stays on a slant. Pretty hard not to at this point.
Add elastic to secure braid.
Wrap hair around the base of the braid. I secured with an elastic & covered it as much as possible with hair. This seems to hold the best. I also spray it with hairspray as I wrap.
Curl the pony & add a cute bow.
***For those of you who have asked what I put in her hair??? NOTHING!! Honestly. I do her hair when it is damp & only use a tail comb. Spray it with hair spray & use the comb again to smooth everything out. So I guess not nothing - only hairspray. Now - if I am keeping it down we use the Garnier Fructise Curling Gel whether I'm curling it or not. It's just a great scultping gel. I think everyone thinks you need to add all this product but the secret is do it while it's wet. It holds all day & we don't get many flyaways. Especially if I spray it & then comb back again.
