Holiday Bun

Christmas bun It looks like this will be the last Christmas hairstyle I will have time to post. We actually just got back from Disneyland! And now we have all the Christmas stuff to do. So, I'll be taking a Christmas break from blogging.

Just for fun, here's a little glimpse into our trip....... The Princess meeting another Princess!
Disney Princess Belle And now back to the hairstyle....

Make a ponytail (We did ours on the side. The middle would work too if you prefer.) Split the ponytail in half and run 2 ribbons through the elastic at the top. (You can see the red ribbon here. We added white as our second ribbon.) Braid both sides of the ponytail and secure with clear elastics at the ends.Form one of the braids into a circular shape and using a plastic needle, sew the ribbon around the braid. Don't worry too much about the end of the braid at this point. You can tuck it in later.Starting on the other side, sew the remaining braid around the first one with the other ribbon.Tuck the ends in with a few bobby pins. Then, tie the ends of the ribbons into bows so that they don't come undone and finish it off with a cute Christmas bow.
