My girlie's hair is just getting oh so long! I can't get her to cut it. I think she would look darling in a bob but she loves her long locks too much so we opted for layers, or "lazers", as she call them. She went up to our hair dresser & said will you cut Lazers in my hair? He looked at me like what???? Layers. They are long layers so it gives enough texture that when we curl it - it holds better & looks better. Also, because they are longer, when we braid or pull her hair up - the layers aren't sticking out with every braid.
So here's our new post:
Start by dividing the hair in half horizontally. Clip the top part up. Begin to TWIST braid the hair. Unfortunately, I cannot find the tutorial that I have put up here on how to do this twist - so looks like there will be one coming soon. If you haven't learned this twist braid - you will love it - it seems to be a constant in our home.
Next, twist the top section - bringing the 2 together to make a side pony
I pulled the pony 1/2 thru an elastic. This left a good way for me to do a messy bun. I then pinned in to let the bun take it's shape how I wanted it.
I apologize for not many toddler styles anymore. We cut my little girls hair into an A line and she will only let me use 1 elastic for her hair. I will tell everyone that her hair looks much better cut and is filling out after taking off her baby hair.
Her bangs are still trouble so we did a twist or roll across the front of her head and wrapped it around to the left side of her head. I secured it with an elastic.
This a very simple easy and fun style. It was inspired by watching Selena Gomez.
First take a small triangle shape of hair on the left side of her head. Simply twist the hair by 2 strands and secure with bobby pins. I cross 2 bobby pins going in opposite directions to make sure the style stays in place.
Do the same thing to the other side.
This style really takes just a few minutes and looks great.
Remember how I told you I had another variation of the rolled flower? I'm finally getting around to posting it. I have one more idea that I want to show you with the rolled flowers so stay tuned for that also.
I love this because it replaces a bow & stays in better than a bow would which is super for this little girlie going to school & losing bows left & right. Get a nice tight side pony. Then braid just one section on the top of pony & secure with elastic
Just like the previous post, began twisting the braid - keeping it flat & securing with bobby pins as you go along. If you can't remember - check the post out below
& you're finished!! I curled the pony but do what you want
