Belle Hair

Our Version of Belle's Hair
Start with making a part in the front of her hair to give a center part.
Then pull up the top half of her hair into a ponytail

Next take the ponytail and make an upside down twist

The key is not to pull the hair all the way through the twist.

Take a ribbon and put around the ponytail part of the hair.

Tie the ribbon into a bow

Then make large ringlets out of the hair that is left down.

The picture below is a the side of her hair

Jasmine Hair

Our idea for Jasmine's Hair

Make 2 parts one in the center of her head and then take a small sections across the front of her head as shown below I put the pieces I wasn't using right now in elastics so I could control the hair a little better.

Here is a picture of the side of her head so you can see how the hair is parted.

Now put a ribbon behind the hair that was secured by the elastic on the side of her head.

I then back combed the crown of her head

Now take the hair on the sides and I twisted it all the way from the top since she has bands. I did this to keep the bangs in the right place. Twist on both sides then secure them together under about half of her hair.

The picture below shows how to secure the hair on the sides of her hair.

Take the remaining hair and secure in a low ponytail at the bottom of her head.

I then wrapped the ribbon around the ponytail. Then take another elastic and put it halfway down the remaining hair. I then took the ribbon and wrapped it around the last elastic.

Cinderella Hair

Pull all of her hair into a ponytail

Take the hair and make loops we did 3 different ones around the ponytail. I secured these in place with bobby pins

The goal is to make a loose bun

I used bobby pins to put the circles in place then we added a headband to top off the Cinderella Look.

Tinker Bell Hair

The 1st couple of steps are the exact same as Cinderella, however I did include them as well.
Pull the hair into a ponytail.

pull the hair and secure with bobby pins to make a loose bun. My daughters hair is longer so we rolled it into each other to make a smaller bun.

I made 3 different rolls to make the bun.

Once the bun is in place I took a small elastic and make a muffin top with her hair to give her the Tinker bell bun look.

This is the side picture below. Note: use bobby pins to place the hair where you want it.

Mulan Hair

The human version of Mulan's Hair
Pull the hair into a ponytail.

Make the hair into a bun.

Once the hair is in the bun pull on the tightened hair that goes into the bun. We just softly loosened the hair to give it the look as it was really loose and almost falling out.

Then add a ribbon wrap it around the bun.

We then added a large flower to the front of the ribbon.

Something for the long hair...

This kind of looks like a bow tie on it's side. You really need longer hair to do this - but you may be able to simplify it somehow & use it for short, also.
Before I dried her hair, I put Garnier Fructise's Mousse in it to help make it not so soft after it was dried. Then I teased her hair just a bit with a comb right in the front to give it a little more volume & then pinned back:
Bring the rest into a low pony & don't pull the hair all the way thru (but don't pull too much - I just left as small a loop as I could). Secure that with another elastic so you don't have hair falling out of it.
The pony tail that is sticking out, begin pinning in loops about the same size & loop below.
Make it look as even as possible & use your fingers to spread the hair & hide any openings. That hair that is left over - you are going to wrap around the elastic to hide it. I spray it as I go, then secure it with a pin & it should stick good for you all day.
Spray to hold & you are finished. This looks really cute for church or with a dress - it fancies it up just a bit.

Fun Updo!

Start by making a very far left part on the top of her hair pull the hair down to her ear. Then twist the hair

Once the hair is twisted secure it with an elastic into a small pony tail at the bottom of her hair.
(I always do a diagonal part on the bottom of her hair also you will have 2 of these small ponytails at the bottom of her hair when finished.)
Do this step on both sides of her head one will be bigger with a far side part and the other will be done with a small amount on the other side.

Then take the remaining hair and pull it into a ponytail.

After the hair is in a ponytail then very last don't pull the hair all the way through and leave the ends still in the ponytail.

Toddler Pull Thru Headband

Because of how thin and fine her hair is I only did 4 pull thrus across the front of her head.
Below shows one of these

Continue across the front of her hair line to make a headband.

Below is a picture of the top of her head. This is simple quick and looks very cute.
