Like I said yesterday, I hadn’t planned on the whole heart hair posts, but I also bought some really thin red ribbon for like 50 cents, so I thought I’d throw this in for good measure. (And no, Bee is not hanging from the ceiling! Just thought I’d show it from the correct angle!) This can probably be done on those girls w/limited hair, because the design is from the ribbon not so much the hair.
No step-by-step pix on this one since I didn’t know what I was doing when I started it. But this one is pretty straight forward & easy.
Part the hair into 3 sections on top of the head. Make the 2 side sections into ponytails. In the center section divide it into 2 squares. Make a ponytail in the front one. Then combine it into a 2nd pony at the back.
Then take your ribbon (pulled through with the end attached to a safety pin, like in yesterday’s post). Start at the back middle pony and threat the ribbon through a little piece of hair underneath the pony. Then head diagonally to the side pony and pass under a bit of hair there in 2 different spots.
Then kind of arch out to make the heart shape & come in underneath the front middle ponytail. If I did this again I’d actually go through the top of the ponytail itself so you could see the part of the heart that dips in the middle. Head back out from under that front ponytail to the next side pony, continuing the shape of the heart. I also weaved under the hair 2 times on the other side pony. Then went back where I started from at the back middle ponytail.
She’s becoming harder to get front shots with her smiling or even willing to look at the camera. You can’t really tell this is a heart from the front, so you get a smile that was on its way out (dang shutter lag!) Like the little bruise on her forehead? Her dad didn’t realize she was by the back door when he came in the other night & knocked her right on her can! The bruise was the end result! 🙂 Nice since I was hoping to get her 2 year old pictures taken this week. Not! Anyway, don’t know if any of this made sense, but it really wasn’t difficult.
