Braids!

I wanted to feature my new favorite braid and different ways that I've used it. It's a french twist braid. I love it because I'm not the greatest french braider so working with just two strands and twisting is a great start (and so easy!) 



With this style, I separated each side into a pigtail. All you do is take two strands from the front, and twist them, with each strands on the opposite side now and take hair from the top and add it to the top strand. Take hair from the bottom and add it to a bottom strand and then twist again! It's so simple. 



The way I discovered this braid is I was trying to follow a tutorial on a different braid and ended up doing it wrong. So here it is. I've also done a side swept french twist braid with her a couple times and it's my favorite. Here it is.


I know, it looks way too loose for a toddler, but she was very wiggly that morning! I've done it before with much better results but don't have a clear picture of it.

LOVE it! I think I got to see this one in person and it was ADORABLE! You'll have to show me how to do that twist thing in person, it never works out for me! It ends up just looking like one twisted strand instead of two twisting around each other.

I do the twist around the back of the head on my daughter too! Everyone compliments us on it and asks us how to do it. Easiest thing ever. I do this on the days where she may want a braid(everyday) and I just don't have the time to do a French braid.
