Annie is very into braids right now, thanks to repeated viewings of the movie Tangled. She’s been asking me to put braids in her hair almost every day, which I am fine with. I like anything that a) keeps her hair from becoming a knotted mess, and b) keeps her wild hair out of her face (and food). I will enjoy her asking me to do her hair for as long as possible, because I know it’s only a matter of time until she says I’m doing it wrong, or her hair is full of bumps, or whatever hair-related malady the kids are complaining about these days.
A few weeks ago Annie asked me for a “Princess Crown Braid.” She had some ribbon sitting on her dresser, so I played around a bit with it, and finally settled on a style that was half-up, with two french braids that tie together in the back with the ribbon.
To do this style, you need:
3/8 inch ribbon, cut extra-long (you will trim it once the braid is done)
Scissors (to cut the ribbon)
Five ponytail holders (I use three regular holders and two clear)
When I took her braid out before bed she said, “Bye princess braid! I love you!”
Any questions, let me know!
