I first back combed the crown of her head. Then take a small amount of hair from the front of her head and twist it. Do this to both sides and secure with an elastic.
Since my toddlers hair is still short I pulled back a small ponytail of bangs so the hair would stay back all day. Then I took the sides and pulled them back and secured it with an elastic.
I flipped the bottom up and then curled the rest of her hair under to give her some volume. I also back combed just under the ponytail.
Below is a side view.
My toddler has the straightest hair so in order to get this look I first blow dried it. Then I took a small curling iron and flipped the bottom up and then curled the top downward. To give it a little body I back combed the top.
Start by making a poof that goes towards the right side. I secured it with bobbie pins
Next I made 2 small rolls on the left side going the same direction as the poof.
Then make 2 small rolls on the right side. I secured these with bobbie pins too.
Below is just a picture of the top of her head.
I started by making a few parts along the front and sides of her hair as shown below in the next 4 pictures
I put the remaining center hair into an elastic.
Below is the parts on the right side of her head.
Below is the parts on the left side of her head.
Next I took the hair on her right side above her ear and wrapped it around the ponytail.
Then I took the hair on the front of her head and rolled it as shown below then I wrapped it around her ponytail.
On the left side I took her bangs and swooped them toward the side before I started rolling that hair and securing it around the ponytail as well.
Then roll the hair just above her ear and attach it to the ponytail.
I used bobbie pins to make the messy bun lay flat to her head. I also added a pink ribbon that I wrapped around the ponytail and tied in a bow at the bottom.
This was simple easy and very cute. All I did was make a puffy braid around the front of her head
I started on a far lateral part.
Then made my way down the left side of her head taking small amounts of hair until I got to the bottom center of her head.
Then I did the same thing down the right side of her head until I met the other end of the puffy braid and attached them together under the rest of her hair.
First I made center part to seperate for her pigtails. Then I made a small ponytail and flipped it through itself. Then make a 2nd small ponytail.
Then take the hair from the bottom of her head and make a small ponytail going up then make a 2nd small ponytail like puffy braids.
Then pull all the hair together for the finally pigtail. Do the same to the other side.
She is the hardest to get pictures of so sorry about the angles and views. Everytime I pull the camera out my 2 year old runs, hides, or crys.
So to explain a little I made a front row of small ponytails 4 across her hairline.
Then I made similar to a puffy braid behind each of the 4 ponytails shown above.
Then I took a ribbon and pulled it through the center of the ponytails.
Then I secured the ribbon at her neck line.
Everyday my daughter asks for full body pictures while I am trying to take hair pictures I told her I would post this full body picture for her.
Start by making your 3 french braids across the front of her head as shown in previous posts.
Then make ringlets in all of her hair.
Take a small ribbon and weave it in and out of her braids on both sides. Tie the ribbons around the ponytail.
Below is the top view of her hair.
For the ringlets I used this curling iron below it saves me so much time and the ringlets stay in all day.
Today at my daughter's school was wacky or crazy hair day. With it also being St Patricks day is why we used green pipe cleaners and green elastics. When I think of Wacky or Crazy hair Dr Seuss came to mind so the ideas are from him.
So the only reason we started with a braid down the front center is because she is growing out her bangs and I wanted them to stay out of her face.
Next I made a crazy part ponytail on the left side near her ear. I attached a pipecleaner with the elastic as shown below.
Below is how I attached the pipe cleaner with the elastic.
I made another ponytail with a crazy part on the crown of her head. (Total you will have 4 ponytails)
Below is how I made the pipe cleaners curly I just wrapped them around my finger before I put them around her hair.
Below shows how I started to wrap the hair in the pipe cleaner. The goal is to have her hair in the middle of the curl.
Below shows how the pipe cleaner looks around the hair.
Once the pipe cleaners are on the hair. I wrapped the hair and pipe cleaner around the ponytail. Make sure the pipe cleaners you used to wrap the ponytail is sticking out through the middle of the ponytail. I curled these around in the holes.
Below shows how to wrap the hair around the ponytail. Make sure you do the ponytail on the crown of her head last it is the only one that will be different.
For the crown ponytail wrap the pipe cleaners as you did the other ones. But instead of wrapping it around the ponytail you are going to make a heart shape. By crossing the ends at the base of the ponytail as show below. I left the remaining out to hang down loose.
Below is a close up of the wrapped heart shape.
Below is the side view of her hair.
Below is what it looked like from the back.
