Another Special Occasion/ Easter Updo Hairstyle

Start with a pony, leaving out an edge of hair all the way around her head. Start inside out french braiding at the bottom of her head, (underneath the ponytail) and go all the way around. When you get to the end of the french braid, keep braiding and bring the end of the braid up the back of her head and combine it in with the ponytail. (If you don't know how to do an inside out french braid, click on the link. You'll find an instructional video there!)I didn't show the next steps in pictures because there really is no exact science to it. I just made some loops of hair with about 1/3 of the hair in the ponytail (the same way I did this Easter style.) I bobby pinned the loops to her head this time instead of using elastics. Then, I randomly braided some pieces and kinda strung them up through the loops and secured them to her head with the little clips. The last step was curling all the ends.

The thing I've found with updos is- it's going to work out differently every time. Just kind of work with the hair until you get it looking the way you want it to. Sometimes I use bobby pins, sometimes I use elastics, sometimes I use clips, sometimes the hair needs to be curled, sometimes it doesn't. (You get the idea.) It's all just a crap shoot!! So, just use the basic ideas from these updo posts, then make your very own creation for the end result!
I was thinking this would be a cute hairstyle for a flower girl too. Or maybe even the prom! (Although I can't be sure about that one, LOL. I'm WAY too old and out of it to know what's in with that scene, KWIM!?!) You could also add some flowers or other bling to it if you wanted to get really fancy.

  7. I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥
    YOUR VOTE REALLY WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

  11. Thank you so much aah the amount of time that must go into this!! I applaud you. But I'm going to give this one a try. I try the last hairstyle and only got 3 separationd on top from her before she when insane with boredom, but it still looked good even though we didn't go all the way around. Everyone asked where I found the style I laughed and said a princess.♥
