“O” is for Octopus … or Oprah!
This quick letter has just a few steps and the part that will probably take you the longest is securing it with bobby pins. So here we go…
Step 1: Make a ponytail
Make a low ponytail as far down to the nape of the neck as you can. I guess you could do this just the opposite w/a really high ponytail too.
Step 2 – Divide & Braid
Divide the ponytail in half and braid all the way down. Secure the ends with rubber bands.
Step 3 – Loop “tails” of braids
I didn’t pull the ends through the last time I wrapped the rubber band. Doing this, or wrapping the tips all the way down with a rubber band helps keep all those tiny hairs from poking out when I’m trying to bobby pin them in & hide them.
Step 4 – Form a circle with the braids
Wrap the ends up towards the top of the head forming your “O” shape and secure them with bobby pins. I overlapped my braids on each side to try hide the ends of the braids and have it be one continuous circle. Secure with bobby pins as needed from underneath so you don’t see them.
That’s is. There’s your letter “O!” You could wrap this with ribbon to secure it to the head as well and to add some color. It makes a pretty wreath that way.
Have a great weekend everyone!
