We did this yesterday for church & then I changed it just a little today. Hopefully it’s pretty obvious what I did, because yesterday when I did it, I had no idea what I was doing until it was done (that happens all too often), and today we were in a hurry to get to the dentist so I spaced grabbing the camera. Either way, this was a quick & easy one, and we had lots of compliments on it at church as well as the dentist office. Longer hair is most likely needed on this one to get the braids to reach around the back of the head. Hopefully this all makes sense. Let me know if you have questions.
First make a rather angled/diagonal part on the right side of the head – angling off to the left. Then I took a small section of hair by the left temple and braided it as far down as I could. (Don’t take all the hair clear down to the ear.)I used a little claw clip to hold it temporarily.
Then on the right side of the head – take the hair by the right temple & section a small portion off to make another little braid. Start braiding and once you’ve braided down a couple inches, grab the top braid from the left side of the head and wrap it across the back of the head and join it into the braid on the right side of the head. Just add it into whatever strand of the braid (I did it into the middle strand) and keep on braiding (be sure to pull the clip o out that you had in there to keep it from coming undone once you’ve added it into the right side braid.) Braid down a little bit further, and then pull the bottom braid from the left side over to add to the right side braid. Add it into the braid and keep on braiding.
Or – for a slight variation :
There you have it. I really like this one. Be sure to spray the hair on the top of her head well so it stays laying smooth & neat looking.
