Then make you part down whichever side you normally part on. Next, make diagonal parts to divide each side into thirds. Secure them with clips to keep them separate.
French twist each section all the way down (to make a french twist, take a small piece near the front of the section, and divide it in two. Twist each strand one direction while twisting one section over the other in the OPPOSITE direction. Each time you cross one, add hair to it- but only take hair from one side- this will make it pop out.)
Bring all the twisted sections under the ponytail and tie them together with an elastic.
Curl the remaining hair. Depending on the type of curl I am going for, I use different methods. This time, I used a curl defining spray all over (by Bed Head) and WRAPPED the hair around the outside of a curling iron. Hold the end CAREFULLY so you don't burn yourself!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. Keep coming back and I will do more giveaways. I really I wish I could give one to everyone! I was so happy with all the feedback, and I'm glad you like my bows. Everything I make is made last. The Itty Bitty Clippies are no-slip, and all the edges on all my clips are heat sealed and will never fray! If you would like to purchase any, including the Halloween ones, just drop me an e-mail by clicking on the link to the right. ->

I simply grabbed a pretty good-sized triangular piece of hair on the left side and started french braiding. Make sure you have the hair combed in the basic direction you want the braid going. I curled the ends (all going toward the front) and added the scrunchie. But a big flower or ribbon would be cute, too.

A pretty basic, yet darling hairstyle:

As you pull each piggy through, don't pull it all the way on the last twist of the elastic. If the hair is long enough, put it in with the next piggy. The last piggy gets flipped up instead of down (does that make sense?) and the ends curled. I love to add little bitty bows, I think it adds the final touch.

I also love to make bows, headbands, scrunchies, and clippies. I love to do custom, made to match accessories. So if you are interested in purchasing any, just leave me a comment. Keep coming back, and from time to time I will do give-aways. :)
And if you live locally, I would love to do a hair party a your house. Just invite your friends and their daughters. granddaughters, nieces, cousins, etc. And we will have a great time doing hair together! You can learn a few tricks I have discovered, and I can teach you how to do waves and curls (even on near-impossible to curl hair), braids and twists, or ponytails and messy-buns. Really, the possibilities are endless! There would be no charge for the party, and I would have hair accessories available for purchase. As a hostess, you could earn free stuff!
