Simple (little) Wreath

I love how people have been doing hair that is holiday themed, but I have a really hard time with styles that are holiday or seasonally themed because sometimes they are just a little to much. Especially for Beans and her very thin fine hair. I wanted a holiday hair do that was not overbearing. Something simple, subtle and darling. I think we found that perfect style. This is a little wreath in her hair.
She loved this hair do. Its top five for her. And who wouldn't love it with those streamers down the back of her hair.
First divide the hair in two sections. Your braid is going to start at the far left (or right) hand side of the upper half of the hair. When I am braiding for this hair do any any time I do a crown on top with the braids I only add hair from one side. Not both sides.
Braid it just like so. I've really been into hair do's where a lot of her hair is left down. That's pretty much the idea to this little wreath. Leaving a lot of the hair down. And because her hair is so thin I had to cheat by doing the arch on top and braiding in the rest and pinning it in to the other side after it is done.
just twist the end over and get it ready to tuck and pin under the start of the braid.
Tuck and bobby pin the hair under the braid.
Add your accessories. I wove in some ribbon to the braid. I didn't follow any pattern. That was just not the kind of day I was having. So I just wove in and out everywhere just adding the ribbon as color and decoration. For the corkscrew ribbon hanging down the side I just put the ribbon on a bobby pin and tucked it inside. If you don't already know how to make your ribbon corkscrewed like this one pictures you can go to this link.
By adding the ribbon it made this perfect (to me). And that particular (Very Cute) bow came from Cutie Pie Hair Creations. She is such a sweet gal. And very generous. She sells ribbons like these for the bow making challenged like myself. So if you don't make your own bows she is another good source for bows. Thank you again for that sweet Christmas gift. You have no idea how happy that made Beans.

So if you don't already have a Christmas hair do to go along with your Christmas Dress this is good one. What way are you doing your daughters hair for her Christmas dress? There are lots of good sites with lots of sweet idea's if you aren't sold on this one and if you are still hunting for that perfect hair do. May I suggest this one, or this one, or even this one... just a few idea's for you.
