School Starts Style

School started this week and my little princess has been so excited to get back and see her teachers and friends.  I have been excited for a routine to set in so I can get back to posting on this site!
This was her hair for her first day back and it was a simple, yet darling style:
Begin by creating an off-centered part at the front of the hair.  Create a section on both sides going from the part down to the ears and secure each with an elastic.
Now create a Regular 3-Strand Braid out of those two small ponytails and have your princess hold onto each once they are done.  Divide the rest of the hair into two areas by creating a part directly down the center.  Begin with the left half and gather it all together into a ponytail - making sure to bring across the right side braid and include that into the ponytail as well.  
Do the same with the right side, remembering to bring across that left braid and add it in.  Comb out any remaining braid on each side.  You should now have two ponytails.  Create another Regular 3-Strand Braid out of each. 
 Bring the bottom of one of your braids up to the last elastic and create a puppy dog ear by securing it up with a new elastic.   Puff out any excess hair over the elastic.  Do the same thing with your other braid and you're all done!

I did this tonight with my 6 year old's hair. She loved it!!! She is thrilled to have new hair designs to look at! Have you ever tried coconut oil as a hair conditioner/detangler? We started using it a week ago and it has made the difference amazing with her long curly thick hair!!!

Ive tried some of your hairstyles on my princess and i love them but she just cries and doesn't like me doing her hair. Shes only 2 1/2 though you think that's the reason??How old is yours and how old was she when you started doing her hair designs??
