Braid Overlay

This is one of those "accidental" hairstyles that turned out really cute.  She started the day with the small braids meeting in the back and the rest of the hair down but we still have temperatures over 100 down here so we pulled the rest of the hair into a braid and this is what it made!  I love it!
Start by creating a small off-centered part at the front of the head. 
 Create a section on each side of the part that goes down to the ear. 
 Make a 3-Strand Braid out of each section and then combine the two braids at the back of the head with an elastic. 
 You will want the braid to be combined a bit lower on the back of the head. 
 Now gather the remaining hair and divide it into 3 sections for your braid.  Add the combined braids from above into the middle section.  Now just braid the rest of the hair as usual.  I love how it absorbs the upper braids and totally conceals the elastic. 
We also tried it another day with Squish Braids and that turned out really well. 
Kind of pretty don't you think!  (An EASY!)
