Puffy Braid Video

I've had a few requests recently for a video on how to do the puffy braids. I know for me sometimes pictures just don't work, I need a video!

This way and That way pigtails

This one started off as just a back and forth headband but then spawned into somethings so much more!

Start by combing the hair off to one side. Make a small pony tail to the side (for the first part use the top hair only)
For the second row do the same thing going in the opposite direction.
The 3rd row you go the same direction as the first, add all the lower hair into a half pigtail.
For the left side take the hair that's down and pull that into a pigtail along with your pony tail on that side.

(she was too wiggly to get a good picture of the left side but you can kind of get the idea here)

Another Baby Pig Tail

It's been too long since I've posted a hair do! I did this one on Maddie today. She was so excited to have her picture done again. She went right to get the camera and stood by the wall waiting.
I don't have step by step instructions on this one but it's very easy. I parted her hair and pulled the bangs to one side, put the bangs into an elastic and pulled that into the pigtail (the same method for the puffy braids)
She wouldn't let me get a picture of the back so I told her to stand like she was in time out. I forgot that for a baby this age they don't know the difference of "you're in trouble" and "stand like you're in trouble" Love those pouty lips! Can you tell she has a HUGE attitude?!!
Her hair is still not long enough for full pigtails so we just did half piggies. (her hair is sssooo curly!
The best top view that I could get on her.

I can't wait till she gets older! This is what her sisters hair looks like! I think hers will be the same.

Upcycled Jeans 2: Cherry Blossom Hair clips

Remember our upcycled headband? Here's a take 2 on upcycled jeans for accessories! We made these adorable little cherry blossom flowers. They are super easy to make and super cute! You will need a pair of small scissors, needle, thread, and a pearl bead for the center.

Cut out 2 of the smallest flowers. Go here for the pattern.
Sew them together. You can find a video with instructions on sewing here. I attached the bead with a needle and thread, then glued it after for extra hold. Glue the flower onto your clip and you're done!
It would also be adorable with the full flower as seen on the video.

Stay tuned for more upcycled jeans accessories!
