Threaded Twist Hairstyle

A Fancy Nancy side ponytail.......

Begin with a section parted from ear to ear and a side ponytail. Speaking of side ponytails, did anyone else notice that the eighties styles are coming back in? (Even for moms.) I actually went shopping for the first time in a LONG time the other day and ended up buying some "stretch pants" and a long sweater dress thingy! I swear I had the same outfit in 3rd grade. And.....it's a good thing the sweater is long. (Because well.... lets just say that the stretch pants are not as flattering as I remember them being in 3rd grade, lol.) Anyway, back to hair.......
threaded braids
At the back of your part, part out another strip of hair and make some twist braids all the way along it.
Don't go all the way down to her ear with the "strip of hair." Leave the sides as they are for now.Make a loose french braid from one side to the other with the remaining hair. With this braid, only take hair from the front. And what I mean by "loose" is; hold it out across the back part as you're braiding. You want it to cover the part later. End the braid with a clear elastic by her ear and add the ends to the ponytail.Using your finger as a guide...... Thread the twist braids up through the french braid.
Ooops I missed a spot, oh well. Anyway, as you can see...... all the twists are threaded through the braid. Notice that you can still see the part. We'll fix that in a minute.
If you made the french braid loose enough, you should be able to sort of pull it down over the part by gently tugging on the twists as you add them to the ponytail.If you want to cover the elastic where you ended the braid, add a cute flower to the side. Oh and of course we had to add some bobby pin flowers to the ponytail as well.twist braidsWe braided in a few more twists in the ponytail at different lengths, just for fun.french braidscute hairstyles for little girls The end.

  6. You can be pleased to know that, when I saw the first photo, I thought, "HOW did she DO that? That looks SO HARD." But when I read the directions, I realized it's not hard at all! I can't wait to try it on my little sister.

  7. How do you get her hair to stay so put and slick looking? Do you keep spraying it down with something or do you put a product on it before you start?

  8. holy smokes ... that is insanely clever! I can barely manage a regular braid. Ponytails are more my speed. I have two daughters and they're constantly bemoaning the fact that I am hair challenged. The one time I tried a french braid, I wished for an octopus to come and help me.

  18. Very pretty! I am regretting cutting my daughters bangs again. Some of the styles look much smoother when you don't have the bangs. I am going to try again, it just bugs me lol.

    Anyways, love the style, we will be doing this one.

  21. CaryManda and Hassiegirl, I think the trick to keeping the twists together is twisting the individual strands first before you twist them together. I have a video showing how to do twist braids here if you haven't watched it.

    Marla and Nicole, my daughter's hair is naturally straight (and long) so I don't need to use a lot of product on it. I almost always braid it while it's wet and add water as I'm going as needed. I sometimes use pomade as well, depending on the day.

    Night Owl Mamma, she is used to having her hair done, so sitting still really isn't a problem for her. :) I try to keep the hairstyles under 20 minutes and she usually has a book to read or a video to watch.
