Candy Cane French Braid With Ribbon

Christmas Hairstyles - Candy Cane French Braid With Ribbon
We did this fun Christmas hairstyle for a Holiday party at school. The Princess loved it. ;)

Lace french braiding was used to create the curved candy cane shaped braid in this style. If you don't know how to french braid, this look could be accomplished by making a regular 3 strand braid and pinning it into place with bobby pins. This style can also be done with or without the ribbon, whichever you prefer.

Although we love this style, I realize this look may be a little over the top for some. For a more subtle/grown up candy cane style, you might prefer the candy cane braid we posted a couple of weeks ago which can be found here: candy cane braid.

Oh and by the way, we came up with a new curling method to create the curls shown in these pictures. It really didn't turn out quite like I had planned and I wasn't in love with the curls (fail) so we didn't make a video. We'll keep working on it though. If you want curls to go with your candy cane, you might try our heatless nylon sock method or a regular old curling iron if you don't have time for curls to dry. ;)

Merry Christmas!!
