Toddler French Braids
First off, I’ve bought to pat myself on the again, as I feel like I’ve finally bought a cling of French braiding. Gasp – sure, I have a hair blog and I’ve stunk at French braiding (at the least for my part!) I mean, I may do it, but I by no means really like how issues turned out. However with observe, I’ve gotten higher. And because the old adage says – practice makes perfect! I still am not the queen of braiding, however I’ll truly let the girls exit of the house sporting one in every of my braids now! 🙂 For this one, you’ll must know learn how to French braid. I’ll finally put my video on right here, but I don’t have time for that yet!
Anyway, back to the hairdo. This is nothing earth shattering, just one thing I thought I’d share as a result of chances are a few of you out there deal with this downside too (and who knows- w/all the numerous, many hair blogs out there, this probably has been done elsewhere!) Bee lastly has enough hair to braid, or French braid. However – she still has numerous the little short hairs/child hairs up entrance around her face. So making an attempt to French braid in direction of the entrance of her hair is a joke for 2 causes. One being those baby hairs, and secondly, attempting to get her to tip her head the best way I need her to so I can get a grip on the hair and braid it is simply ridiculous. She’s pretty sensationnel lace front good at holding nonetheless for brief intervals of time, but I nonetheless am often working on a transferring target. So the opposite day I determined to try one thing else.
I made a side half, after which parted from ear to ear – making 2 little ponytails up front and secured them with rubber bands. Then I did a zig-zag part down the again of the pinnacle to divide the remainder of the hair in half.
Beginning on the left aspect ponytail I made 4-5 plaits of a regular braid in the little pony tail working towards the back of the pinnacle.
Then once I had braided far sufficient down the ponytail and I was over the hair hanging down in back – that’s once i started including hair into the common braid, to start making a French braid.
Proceed adding hair, as you’d to French braid, and braid till you run out of hair. You may cease at the nape of the neck and leave the remaining in ponytails, or I could have flipped the braids as much as cute-sify it some extra, but I left it as is – 2 basic French braids, simply began from a ponytail, into an everyday braid, and then into a French braid.
