Gymnastics Hairstyle - Rainbow Elastic Braids

This one was done last summer. I wanted to look at something summery today since it's been SNOWING where I live lately, ugh! I think this hairstyle would be great for a gymnastic competition!

I got the idea for the partings on this one from one of my readers hairstyles. It's just modified a bit. The princess is wearing what she calls "her rainbow outfit." We had to do some hair to match the theme for the day!

gymnastic competition hairstyle It's really pretty straightforward. I'm thinking you can get it from the finished result without me explaining every step.

Do your part from ear to ear first. Then part diagonally from above one eye, back to your original part. Follow this part for doing your sections on one side. For the other side, starting at the back, section diagonally in the opposite way. (As you can see, we did the elastics in colors like a rainbow.)

  3. OMG I LOVE your yard! We're trying to find a way to redo our backyard (with a 175lb dog that's hard to do) and what you have would be amazing!

  7. Those little ponytails are one of the only things I can do with my daughter's hair. It is so thin! What kind of elastics do you use?

  8. Lin, actually I honestly can only remember one time she didn't want her hair done and we did a ponytail that day. She's a true princess at heart!! I'm the one who has been known to throw a little tantrum once in awhile :)

    Angelas Accessories, I get our elastics at walmart. They're called "goody ouchless." The colored ones come in a package of 250 with 3 different sizes.

    Thanks for the comments everyone!
