French Twist Piggies Hairdo

I didn't do step by step pics. I think it's pretty self explanatory. Just leave out a box on top when you make the piggies. Split the box into 2 sections diagonally, then do a french twist braid in each section and add to the pigtails. If you don't know how to do a french twist braid, click here for a instructional video: French twist braid video

To make the buns: Do a twist braid (another video) in each pigtail and wrap up into a bun, leaving the ends out on top to curl.






Btw, these pictures were taken on her 6th birthday, right before she got her ears pierced! Here she is after the big event with her beautiful new earrings......

  11. Too cute!

    Just dropping a note to come out of the dark and admit I've been lurking for a while. Your creativity (and patience) is astounding! Great work!

    I forwarded your site to my sister. She has a daughter with the most gorgeous long blond hair, and I thought she would get a kick out of seeing your ideas. It's just boys for me for now, but I'm making notes, cause maybe there will be a girl in my future someday! ;-)

  16. CaryManda,
    Hmm, I don't know why your braids aren't staying twisted. I think the trick to keeping them together is how you twist them 2 different ways. Make sure you twist both individual strands in the same direction first before you twist them together in the opposite direction. I don't know if this is making sense, did you watch the twist braid video? Good luck!
