Make it or Break it Another Lauren Hairstyle Braid to Bun



Lauren's hair on Make it or Break it TV show is one of our favorites. We love braids and she always has the cutest braids. So here is another one of our replications of her hair.
I started by making a french braid that started by hugging the front top of her hair and curved around her hair and ended just below the opposite ear.


The picture below shows the braid from the back.

Now pull the remaining hair into a low pony below her ear and include the braid.

Then just make a cute messy bun.

Another Not Hair Related but Cute

I believe in the tooth fairy

I believe in the Easter bunny

I believe in Santa, too


My Grand daughter ask me this year, "Grandma do you believe in Santa Clause?" I replied without hesitation "Yes Kaylee I do believe."

I believe in all things good. You might ask how the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and Santa are good. In my experience they teach us at a very young age to believe in things we cannot see, touch or smell. They can lay the foundation for believing in greater unseen things as we mature. They help children to believe in their dreams. They help children to have faith in things they can not see.As we realize that the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and Santa are not as we perceived them, we are old enough to learn that their gifts were real and that the love they were given with was also real. By this time we have learned much more about life, relationships and values. If you believe, make someone special a tooth pillow to leave out for the tooth fairy. Help them to believe in their dreams.

Puffy Braids to Pigtails

Start by making a center part all the way down her head. I put the left side in a holder to keep out of the way while I work on the right side.
Make a small part at the bottom and secure with an elastic (I am making 2 puffy braids up her head)
Make a 2nd puffy braid

Then secure all the hair on the right side into a ponytail.

Do the same thing to the left side.

Then I took another elastic and made sure I didn't pull the ponytail all the way through.

Make it or Break it Lauren's HairStyle

This hairstyle was taken from one of my daughters favorite TV shows Make it or Break it. This is our version of Lauren's hairstyle from the last episode.
We started by making a poof in the center of her head.


Then I split the remaining hair in half. I french braided the hair starting above the ear. Keep the braid up high because it is going to end up in a ponytail. Do the same to the other side.

You will have what looks like 3 separate ponytails. The center poof and the 2 french braids.

Then take the 3 ponytails and put them into one ponytail in the center of her head.

Sides up with Twist

Take just the sides of her hair and pull back to the center of her head. The center hair is left down under the elastic.
Take the hair in the ponytail and pull it through to give the twist.

Then we make loose ringlets in the rest of her hair.

Braids and Poof

To the previous post these are very similar this was the original hair style and then we decided to add the ponytail for a sports event. I forgot I hadn't posted this style yet so here it is.

I guess the first place to start is making a poof in the top center of her head I secured this with bobby pins. Then I made a small french braid on the side of the poof. (I left a small amount of hair above her ear) as shown below.


This is what the style looks like from the top. The poof in the center and then small french braids along each side of the poof.


Below is a picture of the other side.
We just curled the ends of her hair under and left it down.

Braids and Ponytail

To get your spacing on this one it is easier to start with a poof in the front center of her head. Then make a small french braid on each side of the center poof.

The picture below is the top of the head to see what was done the poof in the middle of her head and then the braids down each side (note: there is still a small amount of hair left down above her ears)

The other side view.

Then pull all the remaining hair up into a ponytail
She wanted a big bow so we clipped it on the side of the ponytail.

Inspired by Barbie

My daughter is getting old enough now that sometimes she has a hair idea she wants to try. This is one of those hairstyles. She got a new barbie for Christmas that had a similar hairstyle.

First make your side part. Then pull a small amount of hair across the top of her head and secure just above her ear with an elastic.

This is the side of her head with the elastic above her hair.


Pull up the remaining side expect the small ponytail you maid with the elastic. Secure with an elastic.


Take the small ponytail from the side of her head and pull it up under her ponytail and pull across as shown below then continue to wrap it around the ponytail.


We then used the blow dryer and back combed the top to give more volume.
