I had to show off my cute Halloween bow from Madibu Bows again, since it's Halloween week!!
I started with wet hair (and--this one I did before school, so it's a fast one!), and did a little zig zag part to the crown of her head.
I parted off a small section, about an inch deep, and did a twist braid (you can put it in a pony first, which makes this a tad bit easier to keep tight, but I was eliminating a step today).
Clip that one off, or have her hold it for you, and then do another small section with a twist braid below it.
Two finished twist braids on first side (this looks weird because I had to take the picture with my left hand).
Do two twist braids on other side, and comb rest of the hair back away from the part.
Comb hair down to point where you want the bun/pony to be. After getting it smooth, lay your four twist braids evenly on top and secure it all with an elastic.
Here's an important tip when trying to put in a pony anywhere but the very top of her head (if you didn't do this already...), have her tip her head forward ( I say, Chin on the chest please!). This will help keep the pony smooth and tight (and so much easier to put in!).
My stuffed bun. If hair is too short, leave in a cute pony or halfway pulled through.
Top. I just love those big bows on top of the bun!
Happy happy girl! And she's off to school!
