After the braids are complete the pictures below show how to pull the ends of the braids up and secure the whole thing with an elastic. Then separate the ends to give a flare look. (This hairstyle was given to me by a good friend. My daughter spent the night with her and this is how she did her hair. Thanks Brit)
I apologize about the poor quality of these pictures. It looks like a setting on my camera got switched. (These pictures don't show how cute this hair style really is)
This hair style is taken from the movie princess protection program. The hairstyle is from the mean girl who's father owns the yogurt shop. (I will try and find a picture of her hair to add)
Once the 3 puffy braids are in place I took 4th of July wire (I bought it at my local craft store)
I cut a small piece and wrapped it around the ends of all three ponytails. I then used my finger to curl the remaining wire.
Fun 4th of July Hair Style
Take some ribbon of your choice and double it to the length you desire. Start by pulling a small amount of hair by her ear. Take the ribbon at the half way and secure the hair and ribbon with an elastic. Separate the hair into 3 pieces and the ribbon by color in the same 3 pieces. Then french braid up to the center of her hair.
This is a picture of one side of the french braid (I apologize that the pictures are not very clear). do the same thing on the other side. So you have 2 french braids that end in the middle of her hair.
Then secure the 2 ends of the braids together. You can do this hair style for the 4th of July or 24th if you live in Utah. Or change the ribbon and wear it anytime
This is one of those hair styles you can wear different way.
My daughter has discovered bumpits so she has the small one in the front of her hair. We secured the poof with small bobby pins. You can leave the hair like this or
Take the hair starting by the ear and pull it up into an elastic. Add one more up the hair to make a puffy braid. Do the same on the other side. Once you have the 2 sides pulled up then take the 2 sides up into one ponytail.
