“J” is for Jewelry
(This was Bee’s response when I asked her “What starts with the letter J?”
She is a true-blue girl!)
This one is very similar to how the Letter I hairdo begins … so here we go.
Begin by parting the hair down the middle & parting from ear to ear. Make 2 small ponytails with each section. Remember to get these ponies far enough back on the head so the top of the J will show.
Braid the 2 ponies and join them in the middle with a rubber band.
With the rest of the hair hanging down in back, I made a small ponytail at the nape of the neck.
Braid all the rest of the hair hanging down in the ponytail from the ponies on top.
Braid as far down as you can, and with a clear rubber band tie the end off & then don’t pull it through the last time you wrap the rubber band. Having a little loop like this keeps all those hairs from the tail from poking out as bad.
One way you could do this is to wrap the J under the ponytail that is on the bottom – but I decided I didn’t like that as much.
You’ll want some smaller bobby pins for this style if you have them. You’ll be needing to secure it randomly in a few places and the smaller ones are ideal for this – especially on the end of the J.
Once you’ve secured the downward stem of the J going down the back of the head with a few rubber bands, if the hair you are working with is long and the J scoops up too far like ours did — tuck the tail under as far as you need to make the J look how you want.
Tuck it down & bobby pin it so that end will stay hidden under the rest of the braid.
That’s it. Pretty easy — just the strategic bobby pinning is all to keep it in place that took the time!
And since I can’t take a still shot of the sign language letter J – and it would have been backwards — she used her magic pinky finger and drew it for you & I just helped a little!! 😉
