This beautiful blonde is my niece. Her pseudonym is Ladybug. My sister-in-law (Aunt C.) did this style and took these pictures. Ladybug's hair is a lot shorter and thicker than Belle's. (This style wouldn't work in Belle's hair.)
Gather the hair into a ponytail.
Separate a section of hair and twist it tight out to the end.
Turn the section down, and bring the end toward the hairband. The twist will make a loop and cross over itself to make somewhat of an 8 shape.
Pin it down with bobby pins. Remember crossing pins in an X shape helps them stay in place better.
Repeat until you have used up all the hair.
Add a bow or flower to the side. This flower is from Gimme Clips. (Thanks Gimme Clips!)
