This simple style is a cute little one that Bug’s friend Maitlyn wore to church a while back. It’s perfect for a day full of play at school as well as church. It was such a fun style & perfect for the length of Bug’s hair. This really is a great style for any type of hair or for any age. If you’ve got a toddler this would be a great one to keep all those different lengths of hair in check.
Step 1 – Make a center part
Make a part from the center of the forehead clear back to the nape of the neck, dividing the hair in half.
Step 2 – Part out small sections
Assuming you’ve made “puffy braids” before, the key is parting things out and securing them with rubber bands. On the right side, part out a small section in front of the ear and make a small ponytail. Be sure to keep the ponytail low & close to the ear. You want these to wrap around the lower part of the hairline.
Step 3 – Make another ponytail
Part out another small section of hair to make a ponytail, adding hair from the first ponytail into it. Secure with a rubber band.
Continue parting out small sections of hair and joining the other ponies into them. You can do as few or as many of these as you want.
Secure the last section of hair into a ponytail right at the nape of the neck. You want to make sure these last ponytails end up fairly close to the middle part. Repeat on the left side of the head so it mirror’s the right side.
Step 4 – Divide the left ponytail into 2 pieces
Step 5 – Make a braid
Taking the 2 sections you just made on the left side, and using the hair from the pony on the right, start to make a braid. **You could skip step 4 and just twist these 2 ponytails together and make a rope braid if you wanted to change this up another way! **
Step 6 – Secure the braid
That’s it! Pretty easy & looks really cute! Great for a day when you want hair to stay put & be free of tangles!
