So although these don’t look “square” – according to my husband from his days of scouting long ago, that’s what they call these bad boys! This one isn’t a hard one, it was just a little tough to do because of the littler amounts of hair Bee has on the sides of the top of her head. I didn’t want to pull up hair from the sides, but it might of made it easier.
I also didn’t take step-by-step pictures on this because I grabbed the camera and it had no memory card in it at the time. Bee wasn’t sitting too still either, so I assumed it wouldn’t work, but it did afterall. Hopefully this is a no-brainer … so here you go!
Divide the top part of your DD’s hair into 3 sections. Divide your first section into 2 and then tie it like you are going to make a knot in your shoelace. Right over left and pull it through the hole. Then left over right and through the hole. Then fasten with a rubberband or a little clippy as I did. Repeat to other 2 sections of hair. And that’s it. Do more if you want, but I stuck with just the three of them so they wouldn’t bug her when she slept.
Wow – the flash really makes you see right into her scalp, huh?! Sorry the above pic is a bit off center, but you can see the middle knot the best anyway because it has the most hair.
Dang shutter lag on my camera got her going into her smile apparently! After I got the knots done I put my Fructis goop into the rest of her hair to fluff up her cute curls. Doesn’t get much cuter than this!
Oh, and here’s one of how it looked dried later after her nap. It reminded me sort of of a monkey knot or something – although those are bulkier and rounder. Okay, maybe it resembles nothing like a monkey knot – maybe a pretzel! Whatever – you get the idea!!!
And once again covering up the smile! Nothing spells fun, more than sucking on an empty plastic rubberband case! Sheesh! But, here you go.
