I've done several dance hair styles before but this one has a bit of a different twist on it so I thought I would post just in case any of you have little dancers out there and are stumped on hairstyle ideas. Make sure you begin this style with wet hair for better hold.
I started by sectioning out the bang area on the front of head and creating a Dutch Braid. (A Dutch Braid is basically a French Braid but you have your plates go underneath instead of over the top.)
I did not have the Dutch Braid go all the way down to the ear but rather just to the end of the bang line and then I just finished plating the hair I had gathered into a Regular 3-Strand Braid.
I secured that braid at the end with an elastic and then set it aside for a minute.
Pull the remaining hair tightly back into a ponytail. You can make the ponytail high or low depending on the look you are going for. We've place this one right over the crown of the head.
