Turkey Foot

We are just getting back home from a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and wanted to share our hairstyle for Thanksgiving Day.  It's called the "Turkey Foot" because it has the shape of one of the claws right off a turkey.
Begin by creating an off-centered part on the top of the head.  Have your part go back to the crown of the head and then stop. 
You are going to create a Half-French Braid on each side of the part.  It's a Half-French Braid because you will only be gathering hair into the top side of each braid - the side closest to your part.  Continue adding hair in until you come to the point where you stopped your part.  Finish it off with a Regular 3-Strand Braid. 
 Do the same with the opposite side of the head.  Have your princess hold those two braids while you pull the hair underneath - from ear to ear - into an elastic at the back of the head. 
 Create a Regular 3-Strand Braid out of that new ponytail and comb the rest of the hair straight down.  Bring your two top braids to the back of the head and join them with your new braid about 3 inches down.  Secure it with an elastic and this will create your Turkey Foot shape.  Add any fun hair clips that you like and spray it with some hairspray for hold. 
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and didn't damage your waistlines too much!  :)
