Just a brief explanation. I want to let everyone know that the reason for such simple hairstyles right now is that I am a working mom and during the summer we try to keep things simple and quick. So here is another very simple and quick hairstyle.
This is a side view and below is a view from the top.
Create 2 french braids along each side of her head. Leaving a small section in the middle. See picture below.
Take the middle section of hair and secure in an elastic.
Pull all the braids and middle section of hair into a ponytail.
Make a bun and use the ends of the braids to create a flower look.
Bun with Ribbon Tied Around it.
Take front and pull down to sides (by her ears). I did a pull through (or twist). Do this on each side. Then all the sides back into an elastic.
This is the view from the back in the ponytail
Now create your bun. Once the bun is in place take a ribbon and put it around the bun. (A special technique I use is taking the ribbon and running it in and out of the hair this ensures the ribbon will stay where you want it)
Always start by making your parts. This helps to make sure your lines are straight and you don't pull your little girls hair. It also makes french braiding easier.
We so a far side part. I started by french braiding one side and then finish with the other side as show below.
Left side of her hair
After the braids are complete pull them towards the back of her hair. Secure with an elastic.
This is very simple and yet such a cute hairstyle.
2 Braids on her lefts side down to a single side ponytail
Once you have the 2 braids pull them together into a side ponytail we used the left side of her hair. Once the ponytail is in place use the braid to wrap around the ponytail. As show below.
Add flower or bow accents as you desire.
