Toddler Braid to Sides up

As most of you who have toddlers know how hard it is for them to sit still.  So with that being said this is the only picture we got after sitting for a french braid. 
Make a small french braid down the center of her head.  Then pull the sides up on top of the braid as shown above.  Then secure all of them together with an elastic.  This is such a cute style.

Side French Braid

This is one of those really quick and easy styles.
I put her bangs back into a poof and secured it with an elastic.
 Then I made a single french braid down the left side of her head and braided all the way to the ends of her hair.

Toddler Pony's

 This fun and easy hairstyle is simply just 2 ponytails.  You can get as creative as you want. 
We started with a small ponytail that angles to her left ear as shown below.
                                      Then make a parallel ponytail behind the first as shown below.
                                         Below is a side view.  I put a small curling iron through her ponytails to give the ringlet look

Toddler Ringlets

My Toddler is going through the I want only 1 elastic if I get 2 in its a miracle so we have been doing a lot of the same styles.  So here is a fun simple hairstyle for toddlers who want plain hair.
We made ringlets in her hair and pulled the bangs back with a Rockin Bobbie Pin
Last month, my camera broke & I am unable to look thru the screen to see what I'm taking a picture of. I'm glad it still takes pictures!! This is super simple & it would be fun to do on 2 half up piggies also.
Start with 2 basic pig tails
Take a section from one side & braid it & secure to the other piggy with an elastic
Then take another (smaller than the braid) section from the opposite the braid is in
Twist the section so it is easier to wrap over the braid. Begin wrapping evenly until you get to the other side
Secure with an elastic on the opposite pony. Then we finished the ponies with messy buns
We are loving ribbon because we're not losing pairs like with the clips. But when I do messy buns - I do not love the look of wrapping a ribbon around the bun - it can look silly sometimes. So if you tie your bow then slide a bobby pin right in the middle - you then just push the bobby pin into the hair where you want placed.

Here's the front view - by the time I tried taking a couple of the back view - my camera had had it & I think the battery died (can't tell since the screen doesn't work:) Scroll back to the top of this post to see the back again!

Intricate Braided Updo

A lovely braided updo style from Bridal Hair on Maui.

FrenchBraid Bands to Low Side Pony

This was fun simple and very quick. I started by making a small french braid along the right side of her head.  Braid it all the way down.
      Make another small french braid along the other side of her head braid all the way to the ends.
                                                        Pull all the hair into a low side ponytail.
                                          I then wrapped her hair around the elastic to hide it.

5 Braids Fun

I made a very small french braid above her ear.  Then make a parallel braid above the first.  The top braid goes from the center of her head straight back.  Do the same on the other side of her head.  There will be 5 braids all together.

Once the braids are done put all the hair into a ponytail.
I didn't pull the hair all the way through on the last round through the elastic.

Shutterfly Christmas/Holiday Cards

I know this has nothing to do with hair but I am so excited for Christmas this year! & I've already started thinking about Christmas Cards. I'm totally digging the bright colors this year. I plan on using a black & white photo with the bright colors, it just seems to make the words POP out. I always DS my own cards but this year, Shutterfly is giving 50 free Holiday cards to bloggers. That is an awesome deal! Especially if you are planning on getting cards, why not get them free? & it's super easy - you just have to upload your own photo. Much easier {& quicker} than having to come up with a design on your own (like when you DS them). Honestly, I've never used Shutterfly before but my sisters are often printing through them. They have done both books & CALENDARS & they all look really nice. So you don't only have to get cards from them. These are a couple of my favorite: I am totally digging the red & turquoise together! So fun!

& there's tons more. If you go HERE you can see what other Christmas cards they have. If you're want more HOLIDAY CARDS, they have those too.

They also have lots of other cute ideas, like Christmas labels. Go HERE to check them out. Isn't that such a fun idea? Check their website out, there's tons of fun Christmas gift ideas. But you can use them all year long, for any occassion!

If you too want to get in on Shutterfly's craze & get 50 free holiday/christmas cards go HERE to sign up

1/2 Fish Tail Braid

I apologize for only having one picture, it was one of those days with lack of cooperation.
So I will do my best to explain.
I did a fish tail braid (for those of you who don't know what a fish tail braid is.  You use 2 strands instead of 3).  I braided all her sides back and then secured with an elastic.
