Try this...

So I have a cute hair do all ready to appear tomorrow, but I wanted to start with the first half because it is a cute do on its own. We are doing two braids piggy tail style. Only difference we are going to give this a zig-zag part instead of a strait part.So what you will want to do first is give the hair a mock part down the middle so you can base your zig-zag on something other than just a guess.
Start your first part at a zig-zag. And then you will need to parts out the hair that will be used for the other braid. Anchor it with a clip if you need to. This is a hard one to work with making those parts. That is why I broke this hair do into two parts. To give you the day to practice a braid with zig-zag parts.
See how I am zig-zagging as I add hair. Do this all the way down.
It ends up being so much prettier I think. What do you think?
BRAIDS with zig-zags or BRAIDS with a strait part?

TO BE CONTINUED....

  1. That is really cute! My 4 year old has recently gone from asking for "one pony" to "two braids", so this will be perfect for a little more variety.

    Now if I could just get her to let me put a flower/bow in the back of her head instead of some random place in the front so SHE can see it. LOL :)

  3. Oooh- Kathy I think you are going to dig tomorrows if you are trying to put little extra's in her hair. Tomorrows addition to this one might be just what works. I hope.

  4. I love this! It does seem that it might be a bit tricky. I can't wait to try it though. I think it definatley looks way cuter than just a regular part down the middle.

  6. I totally love it. But next time I see you you're going to have to show me. You know how dense I can be & I'm not following the pic that shows you braiding. I'm sure, as always, I'm thinking it's harder than it really is!

  12. When I did this today I put the zig zag part in there first, then stuck one side in a temp pony while I braided the other. I didn't need as many fingers that way and it looked the same when it was done. I can't wait to try what you posted today! Thanks!! :)

  13. I do zig zag parts a lot but this is different! The zig is the third strand of hair. I usually zig zag the whole head and anchor one side and do what I want to that side then do the other. Your way looks awesome. ANd possibly above my skill level. I will have to practice. Cute!

  15. I am having a hard time figuring this out. It looks so beautiful and would love to try it on my little girl. Would you ever be willing to make a video for those like me who are needing to see it in action to get it? It really is pretty!
