Lesson 22: Princess Braids

For this simple princess hairstyle, begin with a part in front (middle or side).  Part out a section on either side and braid it.  Secure it with a temporary band or clip. 
Repeat on the other side.  Connect them together with another hairband.
Remove the temporary bands or clips.  Add a flower or bow if you want.  This hairdo will have the tendency to get messed up rather easily if your daughter lays against a chair or rolls on the floor or whatever things little girls do.  The hair on the top of the head will come up over the braids in great arches sometimes.  If this is a problem for you, it helps to connect the braids higher up and the head leaving a smaller place for the hair to get roughed up.  Since I was in a hurry on a school morning and didn't realize the trouble I was causing myself, I solved the problem by putting it all together in a ponytail on the bottom.  No so princessy, but still a nice looking do.
