The girls are involved in their school musical again this year and that means some extra early mornings for us a couple times a week. Translated that means even less time for hair & the normal morning routine so they can sleep as long as remotely possible! Often we resort to ponytails just to be extra quick, but a couple weeks ago, this was one we got through just as quickly & even had time to spare & take a few pictures to share!
Step 1 – Part out a large rectangle or square
I didn’t use the main section on her crown, my section was off centered. I made my left side part and worked over from there.
Step 2 – Divide that rectangle in half
Part right down the middle of the section you already parted out. The part should go from left to right.
Step 3 – Braid each section
You could twist them, or do whatever your favorite braiding technique is. We opted for our favorite uneven 3 strand braiding technique which you can see HERE. It is quick & gives such a fun & different look than a regular braid.
Step 4 – Secure the ends
Use a rubber band to tie the ends off. You could join them at the ends if you want, but we just left them as individual braids to hang down.
And that’s it! You’re out the door in no time! If you had more time, curling the rest of the hair that hangs down would dress it up a bit. She went nice & straight due to our time constraints. I love these styles because her hair stays out of her eyes but can be down and long at the same time.
