I hope I took a good enough picture on this one... This one is a VERY REQUESTED one with Beans new short hair. I actually had this one done in my own hair and Beans asked if we could do it in hers, so we tried and we were successful.
All you need to do for this one is do some braids at the top of the head near the part. I did two one each side. Pull the hair tight underneath the braids. Lay the braids on top and secure with bobby-pins behind the ears. Securing both the hair pulled tight underneath and the braids into position. Its kind of her own headband with out using a head band.
Another thing I love about this one is that it works as a head band with out her actually wearing a headband. That is always pretty fun. Here is a front view:
Like I said before, I sported this look before we even tried it in her hair, so this one is great for all ages and (really) all hair lengths. Hope you like it too. Do you share any of the same hairstyles you do on your kids in your own hair?
