As promised, here’s a hairdo not related to Alice in Wonderland at all! If you’re not a big French braider or don’t French braid quickly this can be done with regular old braids – but I had a bit more time this day so I did French braids. Either way – it’s versatile, not rocket science -but I think it looks quite neat.
On the right side of the head make a side part on top of the head. Then part down to the ear. Make your braid (French or regular) and tie it off with a rubber band.
On the left side, part it down to the ear, and then divide that into 2 sections. (Hold the hair in the very back apart from the rest of the hair with a clip – you can sort of see my red clip.) You’ll braid the section of hair closest to the face first, so hold the other section by the ear with a clip to keep it out of the way.
Braid the front section and secure with a rubber band.
Then braid that second section, and also secure with a rubber band. Again, remember, regular old braids will work just great for this too.
Then pull all your braids together – but you’ll be offsetting it, so pull the right braid more towards the left side.
Then braid all 3 braids together – just a regular old braid. Tie off with a rubber band. Because the strand that came from the right side of the head is shorter, you’ll probably run out of hair to braid the braids all the way down – so go until you run out of one of the strands to braid with. I just pulled the rubber bands out underneath the blue one and combed the braids out below that blue rubber band.
Add your accessory of choice, and ta-da – quick & easy and it looks so pretty.
If the hair you’re working with isn’t long enough to pull it to one side, just do it smack down the middle of the back of her head. That works too. But if you do pull it to one side, then you’ll have a braid wrapping around the back of her head like this:
I also did this on Bug the same day. They often sport the same hairdo’s depending on my mood! I liked Bug’s a bit better because her hair is a bit longer so I could do the “combo braid” longer, and it’s not as thick – so the combined 3 braids looked less chunky & cooler I think! Anyway, hope you like this – we sure did!
