Here is another hairstyle that my princess fell in love with that we found here at Babes in Hairland. She calls this the "Figure 8 Braid" and I think that's a great name for it! This is our version of that same braid.
I just started by creating two side piggies with a straight part down the middle. Divide each piggie into 3 pieces.
Hold two of those pieces completely still while you wrap the third piece in and out of the two. The third piece that you are wrapping will run out before you reach the bottom of your piggie so just secure it in place with an elastic where it ends.
These are really fast and have a fun new look to them.
