Start by making a part in your daughters hair anywhere. I don't like down the middle parts so we part hers on the side that slopes toward the middle of her hair.

French braid each side down to the end of her hair.

Then combine them anywhere in the middle as long or short as you want to. You end up with almost a heart shape look. My daughter loves braids so we have really had to get creative. If you want you can pull some hair over the elastic and curl it. This hides the end of the braid and gives it a whole new look.
