fish tail/messy buns

Hope you guys all had happy holidays & are now back into the "normal"swing of things. We just got back from Disneyland last week which was just a cherry on top to end our holidays. Now back to reality.

As I was doing this, I was thinking it would be really cute to do these little messy buns on a girlie with short hair or even just leaving them as piggies. My girlie's hair is getting so long that messy buns aren't just quite as cute as they used to be.
Start by dividing the front part of hair in 3 sections
FISH TAIL braid each of those ponies. It is a little bit harder fish tail braiding smaller pieces of hair - if you can't do it or don't have the time to do it, just do a regular braid or cork screw twist. Or you could leave it straight (especially if her hair is shorter)
After you have braided all three ponies, pull into pony tail directly behind the first 3 ponies including the braids in it.
I only did half way so that I could do 2 more piggies below. divide the hair however you feel, I wanted 5 messy piggies so this is how I divided it:
Turn each piggie into messy buns. Or you could curl them & put into messy buns or jsut leave them straight.
We added a bow in the middle & it just wasn't doing it for me. Maybe a ribbon on each one would look cute.
