Flowers in Hair {part two}

If you did not see my last post please start with that one... you won't know how to make the flower if you didn't already see that post. Please click on this link to be taken there now, or read on if you are ready. :)

Now down to business. I'm not sure if I explained it well how I got the flowers placed where I did last time. So this is not 100% the same hairstyle, but its using the same concept. With the first hairstyle I posted with flowers I finished up the ponytails on the side with a topsy-tail twist.These I just left as simple ponytails.
 The key to these is leaving yourself an area to use for the flowers. THE ONLY THING YOU NEED TO CHANGE is your parting. Normally I would do these with a long rectangle shape parting. For these however I am going to make my ponytail sections triangular.
 This is how your ponytails will look. You can do as many as you'd like and as thin or as thick as you want. Every parting style will result in a different look. I didn't want one flower on top directly so I planned my parting accordingly. I ended up with an even number though and I don't love even numbers in hair design, so you just have to decide what you want the end results to be.
 Once you get all the ponytails in place you are going to make your flowers in the place I put the triangle shape on the photo. That will be your base area you will be working in. For the side ponytails I did the same thing, but before I made the flowers I used the topsy-tail for more detail. Both ways work. {Flower video can be found here.}
Beans was stopped all day on this one. Lots of people wanted to check out this style. She even came home and said it was her favorite, but she thinks it might not be a good school hair do--- "it caused to much of a distraction," she said. LOL. I love that girl!!! Hope you share your flowers with us on our facebook page. We love seeing what you are working on.

  1. Fantastic! I am just loving your site! I have 2 questions for you. #1, I am just barely starting to 'do' my 4 year old's hair and some days she wants to just leave it down. (she has a tender head and probably doesn't want to go through the hassle of doing her hair!) I don't want it to be a negative experience for her, but want to do her hair sometimes! Is it ever mean to say, 'No, we're going to do your hair cute today'? #2, what kind of curling iron do you use for her hair? Thanks for EVERYTHING!
