Christmas Hairdo - The Christmas Tree

K, we have quite a few Christmas hairstyles ready to go. The Princess has been wanting "Christmas hair" ever since we put our tree up after Thanksgiving! Hopefully I'll have time to post them all. It's been busy around here (as I'm sure it has been for everyone.)

I didn't do step by step pictures for this style. I decided it would take too long and I'm guessing everyone knows how to do these connectors anyway. Make them in the shape of a tree by starting with one at the top and adding one more to each row all the way down. As you can see...the sides are connected, but the ones in the middle are just sitting on top.

holiday hairdo Before she went to bed we added some braids so that she would have waves in the morning.
Although this one took awhile (almost 20 minutes) she actually ended up wearing it for 3 days! It was worth the extra time.

  8. That is so funny! We did this exact thing last night for a choir concert. Except the top band was yellow (for the star) and we did one big pony at the bottom with a brown band for the trunk!

  9. So cute! What kinds of bands do you use? I can't seem to find green.

    Thanks!

  10. The Sparks, We use "goody ouchless" elastics. They come in a pack of 250 in 3 different sizes and all different colors. We find them at Walmart.

    Audrey, What a great idea! I thought about using brown for the trunk, but didn't have any brown rubber bands. I didn't think of putting a yellow one on top for the star. How cute!

    Tara, I'm glad you're enjoying the book. Thank you!

  17. Thank you so much for these CUTE hairstyles. 1'm 17 and our choir director warns us never to come to a concert with a Christmas Tree in our hair. Well, I did this one last night for practice and everyone LOVED it! Unfortunately for our performances we can't have any colored bands. I've adapeted a few of your designs and still enjoy them!
