“G” is for Grandma & Grandpa
Bee picked that one since our Grandma & Grandpa are coming home today
after being in Australia for 18 months as missionaries for our church.
Make a half pony parting the hair from ear to ear. When making the ponytail make it off center towards the right of the head. Then make a twist/rope braid in the ponytail and secure it with a rubber band.
With the remaining hair make another pony tail – but make it in the center of the head not off to the side. Don’t make it too low or you won’t have room for the bottom of the G to wrap around.
Make a rope/twist braid in that 2nd ponytail as well and secure it with a rubber band at the end. Be sure to twist as far down as you possibly can so don’t have a lot of wispy ends that will stick out later.
Take your top twist and curve it over to the left for the top curve of your letter G. You will need bobby pins at this point to secure everything. Anchor with bobby pins as needed.
Secure the top twist all the way around until you are under the bottom ponytail. Don’t secure the end of that twist quite yet.
With your twist on the bottom, pull it towards the right side to make the inside of your G and secure it with a bobby pin.
Now wrap the bottom twist around the bottom of the head and up into the other twist on the left side of the head. You’ll want to position these so they kind of overlap and so that you can hide the tails of each of them underneath the other twists.
Once I got the bottom twist secured into the other one, I tucked the tail of the top twist up underneath everything and secured it with more bobby pins.
Here’s views from all the angles!
And here is how our fabulous Laura W. did hers. She did a half-French braid all the way around and then pinned the end of her braid into the middle for the inside of the G. If you don’t know how to do the half French braid you can check out our video HERE to see how to start one. You’d just need to begin up on the top of the head & wrap your way all the way around the head.
Bee thought the letter G in sign was funny to do because it was like a little gun. Maybe there is a correlation there I don’t know! I’m not a pro when it comes to sign language!
And there you have it. The middle of my letter G was down just a bit low and so I tried to pull it up a bit with some hair pins. Be sure to get that ponytail high enough and you won’t have that problem!
