Braids to Messy Bun




This one is really straight forward. Two inside-out french braids into a messy bun. I didn't part the hair all the way down the back. Just a part up top, on the side, kind of diagonally. When you take hair form only the bottom to turn the braid inside-out, it is easy to do it without a center part down the back.



Yes, this messy bun is slightly different than the one in the video. Some mornings her hair won't cooperate and I improvise. This particular morning, I skipped the part where you tuck it back though the ponytail holder. I ended up using clippies to hold some of the hair. But after a game of kickball or hopscotch, it doesn't look this good. :)

I might go private too, this is crazy, over at girly do's she has a review on all the blogs. Why?

Who cares. This isn't war right?

I am with you all the way. She even said she wasn't a fan of mine because my girls hair was too thick. Hmmm let me know if you go private.

I just found your site looking for different hair styles for my older 2 girls. If you do go private I would like to be added to your blog. I love to see all the different ways I can do my older girls hair. I also love you daughters braids to Messy Bun. I will have to try that on my 10 year old on Monday for school.
