This is actually yesterday's hair-do. We had stopped at a little convenient store after violin lessons to let my daughter pick out a treat for practicing so hard this week. Not to mention she had such a great attitude about it and wanted to only work on the things she actually needed work on. Most of the time it seems like they want to take the easy way out...but she really wants to learn. She has done gymnastics and ballet and this is the first thing she has actually really loved:) She talks about it all the time and we practice 6 days a week. Well it was so cute, because we were standing next to 2 teenage girls and one of them said "that has to be one of the coolest hair-dos I've ever seen in my life". My daughter thought it was the coolest thing that TEENAGE girls liked her hair:)
We started with regular ol' piggy tails.
Next we did a pull through knot on each side.
Take the hair from the ponytail and split it into 2 pieces.
Using those 2 sections twist both sections out. (The left one left and the right one right.)
Twist until tight and hook with an elastic. We repeated this 2 more times. You may need more or less depending on how long your daughter's hair is.
We curled under the ends and added some hair things.

An adorable front view! I think I just might die without her:)
For fun we threw in a picture of how her nails looked today!
