Before we get started, I want to remind everyone about my 100th Post Giveaway, found here. Today is the last day to enter and it's the easiest one yet! Thanks to everyone for your support for 100+ posts!
Sis has been asking me to do another "all-braidy" style. ;)
Part the hair into sections. This style works best with a very deep side part.
Put the front/bangs into one french braid going all the way across. A row, or several rows for older girls, looks the best on the side with the most hair.
I some how missed the following picture... Part the rest of the "bigger" side into rows behind the bangs. Sis only needed two french braids, but older girls will need more. ;) On the other side, create french braids starting at the front and going straight back. They will fall naturally.
Next, part one row in the back of the hair into small sections and braid them.
Now, it's time for the beads... This is one of the easiest ways to add beads, in my opinion. ;) Start with one bead and an elastic. I recommend clear, but used contrasting colors to show it better.
Okay, so put the elastic through the bead and then put one loop through the other loop and pull it tight. Next, put whatever beads you want onto the braid. There are several ways to do this. I suggest simply wetting the hair and using the hair as a "needle".
Your last bead will be the one with the elastic attached. slip the bead onto the hair and then wrap the loop that sticks out around the hair. It is secure for normal wear, but can also be taken out easily.
I loved the finished look! Sis decided to wear this lovely dress. (Yes, on a rainy day when we had no plans!)
Originally, I had straightened her hair. However, I like it better curled. ;)
We influence who our children will be with the way we behave around them and love them. Such an incredible opportunity! I love spending time with my kids and getting to see things from their perspective. They are such a blessing!
Almost a teenager and maturing by the second, I can barely keep up with this boy! It is so exciting and terrifying watching your child grown into an adult. But I'm already so proud of the man that he is becoming!
Drama-Boy (Dun dun dun Daaaah!)
This child is so creative and loving! The drama has not toned down and I wouldn't want it to for a minute. He is one of the sweetest and most sensitive people I've ever known and he sees the world in a beautiful way!
