For Sunday (church) this week we were totally excited about Beans hair being long enough to do a low braid with a side bun. Her hair is finally getting long again. We are both so excited. Every once in a while she will want to cut it short again, but I tell her she has to sleep on it first and if she ever decides she wants to go short again I'll gladly let her, but she always changes her mind back to having long hair again.
waterfall braid on the top. This was helpful because it helped to hold that particular section of hair a little more tight and secure. And it added a little extra flare.
The only thing I might do different next time is to finish the braid and join it into the lower braid. It would give it a fun asymmetric look. I like it the way I did it, but that is what I might try to do next time.
