By the way, some of the steps in this hairstyle could be used as it's own hairdo! It would be darling left just like this. Right?
If you want to keep going; Thread a couple of ribbons through the middle of the pull throughs. These will act as little "holders" so that the ribbons will stay in place.
Now you can braid the ribbons into the hair on both sides (4 braids total.) We made these braids look zig-zaggy by splitting the hair into 2 strands and using the ribbon as the 3rd strand in the braid. Try to hold the ribbon flat as you're braiding and loosely braid the hair around the ribbon without letting the ribbon fold or twist. Secure at the bottom with a clear elastic.
Again, you could stop right here if you wanted. We actually left her hair down just like this one day and it was so cute!
Or, if you would rather.... Pull everything over into a side ponytail and braid the ends the same way we did with the other hairstyle.
It's hard to see here, but her hair wasn't quite long enough to go all the way down the ribbon and over to the ponytail on that pink braid. I just tied it off with a clear elastic halfway down the ribbon to keep the hair from unraveling. It really wasn't noticeable. So, if your daughter's hair is on the shorter side, that's an option.
