We don't like to wear the same hairstyle all of the time.... there are many things that can be done with the hair... leave it down, pull it back, ponytails, braids, curls, etc. I really like getting 2 hair styles out of one.... and here is how we did this one....
We started with French braids.. If you are interested in seeing the first post about it, you can see it here....
Pigtails and French Braids
We started out with freshly washed hair.... and when it was still damp, it was french braided quite tightly. It lasted well and looked nice all day long.
It still looks nice... a few hairs loosening, but not bad.
Day 2... after she is dressed...
The hairstyle is looking a bit "tired"... but it is still okay.
Up close you can see that more hairs are coming loose. We were at home and didn't have any special activities, so this worked out fine.
We need to change the hairstyle....
It is pretty obvious up close that this one is done... and needs to be changed.
So... we took the braids out... don't the waves look nice?
We pulled the hair back and her hair looked nice all day.... and yet was a new style for the week. We don't always let it go this long, but we had been home all week and hadn't been doing any dirty or sweaty work, so it was fine.
The fun thing is that this daughter's hair is not curly, so these waves are really fun for her. No, I didn't put any gel in... but you could if you wanted to be sure the waves would hold.
It was nice to get 3 days out of braiding the first time. Yes, she did sleep with the braids each night. She doesn't have oily hair, so waiting to wash isn't a problem.
By the way, I did not brush the hair out after I released the braids... that makes the waves last longer. The next day we brushed the hair and put it in a ponytail. :)
Thank you for visiting... I hope you have a great week.
