Braids, Braids, and More Braids

My Princess has let her hair grow out to where I am having a lot of fun with the various braid options.

I have tried many and this one is my favorite.

This braid keeps her hair and fly aways out of her eyes and she can still wear most of it down.  I have done variations on this braid by doing the braid around her face and then pulling it all back and braiding the rest of the hair too.

This next braid is what My Princess calls a braid ball.  She saw a little girl at church with her hair like this and wanted me to mimic it.  First I pull all her hair back in a pony tail and divide the pony tail in three sections.

From there I braided each section.

I wrapped the braids around each other an used a ton of bobby pins to secure it in place.

This next braid is like little mini braid balls. I didn’t put this one in a pony tail first…

…just divided the hair into thirds and braided each of the sections.

Then I wrapped each one of these around into its own little bun and pinned them in place.

This is the finished look.

I love the look of a French braid. On this one, I started by braiding the hair in two French braids.

This in itself is cute but since we were in the braid ball mode we added some to spruce up this hairstyle as well.

I also tried the snake braid.  This is good if you’re looking for something unusual.

I am letting my hair grow out but it won’t be long enough to do any braiding for a while.  I’m sure glad My Princess is eager and willing to let me try new things!!

  1. Carrie,

    Don’t forget to try the Princess Leah braid that she wore in “Return of the Jedi”. That one is my personal favorite. Hope you had a great Easter.

  5. *sigh* One of the reasons I sometimes wish I’d had a girl instead of all boys. My hair is much too fine to look decent in a braid, unfortunately. I may have to borrow a friend’s daughter and try these out!
