triple inside-out frenchbraids

We hope everyone is enjoying the holidays as much as we are. It sure is keeping us busy. & I told you in my last post my camera broke. Well - the next week we went to Disneyland & I couldn't even find it ANYWHERE!! I've been using my mother inlaws for a few days & had to sneak a post while I had a camera.
Starts by sectioning off the front part of the hair & frenchbraiding it.
I skipped the middle part & sectioned the underneath part first.
Then I frenchbraided that the same direction as the top.
Now do the middle section, braiding the opposite direction & adding an elastic to where you want your pony tail to be.
The tricky part is getting these dang pony tails even with each other. Mine are a little off (& they will be lopsided since one has more hair than the other)
I braided each pony tail.
Pulled it up half way & secured with an elastic
Then folded that braid in half again & secured with an elastic. These are our favorite type of buns to do right now since her hair is so long.
add your ribbons & you are done. Which by the way - we hardly wear bows anymore - she's all about ribbons which I'm find with - they stay in her hair better & look just as cute

my little one is almost 3 and we've been using your tutorial for almost 5 months. She goes to preschool 2 days a week and her teachers tell me they always look forward to Allie's hairstyle for the day. Thanks to you! Allie is such a strong-willed hard child some days that those cute braids and bows are the only cute thing about her. She has learned to love getting her hair done. Thanks :)

Thanks for cute hair ideas. I was looking at the pictures thinking "gosh, I couldn't do that because (my daughter) Ilee wouldn't hold still long enough" then I saw the remote in your daughters hand and laughed.

My daughter is in kindergarten, and it seems our daughters are about the same ages. It's been fun to change her look as she grows. She has long hair that she refuses to cut, so it's really fun to be able to do so many creative things with it, thanks to you! Keep it up! I don't know where you've been all this time, but I'm looking forward to you coming back with all sorts of new fun stuff!

This is such a beautiful hairstyling site. You really do great and creative work on your "girlie's" hair.

If you ever have any problems with her hair getting tangled after taking out the twist braid styles-just use the Take Down Remover Cream.

It will protect her lovely hair.

Did this one today on my 3 year old but he hair isn't near as long so I took the ends & braided them into the middle one then did a braided bun on the side. It turned out so cute! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas!
