Another one with climbers

If you are here for this hair style... You are in the right place.
We are working with climbers again. Like we did in the hair-head-band a few weeks back. I love working with climber styles because it works for even those who can not braid. And they are quick and easy. And if you get to the bottom and your little one makes a big move that messes you up... You've only messed the style up to the last stop that you put in a rubber band. So this one is great for the movers and shakers. And those who have to do a little--- then let there little one play for a few--- then do a little more--- etc. etc.
I finished the right side of her head already so I could just get right to the point. But start by parting down the middle like you would for two piggy tails. When you are making parts for each section be sure to line up your parts or this will end up being a messy style. You are working with Knots again. I love working with knots. They end up making the style look very cool if done right and people are always asking how to do styles with knots. Put in your first pony tail and knot it up by taking the pony tail back through the hair.

If it looks like this you are right on track. If you need help with knots go to the Knotty Crown tutorial. And then come back and do three more climbers until you get near the bottom of the crown-- or back of the head.
Notice how I still have some hair down. I am going to gather this up into the last knot. I am going to gather them together with a rubber band. And there is a reason for this. Knots tend to point down and I want mine to point out. So by gathering in this hair I am forcing it to stand up and not be a downer.
So gather and smooth it together.
I don't want a lot of extra rubber bands in my style, so I am cutting the original one out!
If you don't want to do this-- don't. But if you do--- get it up and away from the hair so you don't cut hair.
Don't you think that looks better?
Remember me saying that knots point down. Well they point down and twist out of hair that is loose and at the end of a pony tail. So to keep this tight and smooth . I am dividing the hair 3/4 in my hand and 1/4 down to gather like we did before.
Secured with a rubber band I can give this a knot.
My next step is to combine with that 1/4 of hair left over. And then get ride of the rubber band.
I'm doing it again. Same thing. And depending on how long the hair is you can go on and on with these knots. They are so cute.
This is how many we can get in Niky's hair.
Put it all together and this is what you get.
With the cheese smile.For an alternative and a big time saver just pull the hair into low pig tails and do the two knots just at the the end. This is cute too!
Very cute!!!

  1. This is really cute, and looks super easy. I have 3 daughters hair to style in the morning (ages 8,6 and 5) - and now our neighbor comes over so I can do her hair,too (also age 5). Styles like this are awesome! And adorable when I have FOUR little ladies wearing it, lol!
