Lesson 40: Braided Three-Leaf Clover

This style is the same general concept as this heart.  I gained some more inspiration from watching this You-Tube video for a similar style.  Part the hair and put in hairbands like so:
Turn them each inside out with a Topsy Tail, pulling through to the outside (backwards).
Split each tail into two equal sections and braid them.  Use mini clips or hairbands, as they will be taken out in a later step.
Gather all the braids together at the center of the head, forming heart shapes around each pull-through.  Secure them together with a hairband.  If your braids are clipped, be careful to pull the hairband over the clips so the don't get pushed off.  Brush the remaining hair into a ponytail.  Add the braids and band it all together.  Take out the clips or bands that are holding the braids, and brush out the end.
 If you want to make the clover leaves look fuller, you can use a bobby pin to connect the two braids together at the sides or use a mini clip.  You could try clipping the braids underneath to hide it, (then ask her if it is comfortable).
You could add a bow on the bottom if you want.  Happy St. Patrick's Day!
