Twist, Weave and Cross Hairdo

For this style, start by making a woven tiara with twist braids.
Add some low piggies. (Sorry about the terrible angle.)

Do some twisting braids and cross these over to the pigs.

So more twist braids in the pigs themselves. (Yes, another bad picture.)

This held up really well overnight, so of course we had to get one more day out of it! I just took out the braids in the pigtails which made some cute waves and added some flowers. (You've seen these flowers before, and most likely will be seeing them again. The princess loves them!)

  4. I noticed that at the end of the twist braids you end it with the hair spiked out in circles. How did you do that?

  6. Hottonsix,
    Make a little loop at the bottom by not pulling the hair all the way through the elastic. Then, spread the hair out all around the bottom of the braid and spike.

  11. oh my goodness, I just found your blog via a digiscrapbooking blog (by heather manning) and I am just in HEAVEN! I have a (just turned) 4 yr old dd with beautiful hair. I am always twisting it, turning it, trying weird fun stuff with it,but it has all been a lesson in mass experimentation (I have 2 older boys so she is my guinea pig)! Now I have some definite inspiration!!!! I had NO clue that these types of blogs were a reality!!! :D ty ty ty so much for your blog and for your fabulous list of like-blogs! :D These do's are toooooooooooo cute!
