Braid to Side Ponytail

I started the french braid at the left top side of her head and braided sideways until it got to the opposite ear.

                                          Once the french braid is complete secure it with an elastic.
                                          Take a small amount of hair and wrap it around the ponytail.
                                               Below is the top view of all her hair.

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

Braids in Headband

 This is quick, fun, easy, and really cute.  All you do is start by making your part.  Then make a small braid on the right side of her head as shown below. (Braid all the way to the ends)
 On the left side start by making one braid closer to the front of her head.
 Make a 2nd braid towards the back of her head so the braids lay off centered from each other as shown below.
 Take both sides of the hair and pull them tight and secure with an elastic at the base of her head.

Toddler French Braids

It is not very often this fun filled 3 year old will let me do anything creative with her hair so I always jump at the few opportunities. 
 I made 2 small french braids as shown below on each side of her head.
 Then I combined the 2 french braids with (the everyday request just 1 elastic)
                                                        Below is (sort of the top of her head)

X Braids

This hairstyle was designed by my daughter she asked if I could make french braids that cross in the center.  So here it is.

I started with one french braid that in the center I just braided as shown below instead of adding hair (this was because I didn't want bulk in the cross section.)
                                   Next make another french braid across her head. Shown below.
                                             I also braided all the way to the bottom of each braid.
I then pulled the ends of the braids and folded them up to the base of her head and curled the ends to lay over the braids as shown below.

Braided Sides

Make a french braid with all the hair on her left side of her head.  Braid it down a ways (as shown below)
                                Make another french braid with all the hair on her right side.
 Lift up a small amount of hair (this will be to hide the braids after they are attached together as shown below) 
                                                     Back comb the hair over the braid.
