Belle is beginning to get tired of her long hair, and she says it bugs her. She's ready for a cut. I did a search to find out what the minimum requirement is for Locks of Love. They say 10 inches. Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to medical treatment. Belle said she'd like to do that another year and not cut that much off yet. But if you are interested, you have to cut the hair after you put in a hairband (so it isn't all loose), stick it in a bag and a padded envelope, and mail it to

Begin with a ponytail. Divide the tail into a few sections. I used four, but if you use more the twists will be thinner and give it a more detailed brain/worm effect. Twist each section all the way to the end, and then keep twisting it tighter and tighter until it starts to curve and make loops. Tuck the end into the hair band.

I don't actually know what this is called... It is a hawser twist, but you add hair with each cross like a french braid, but a french twist is a completely different style, so I'll just call it a french hawser twist. Before you try this one, make sure you know how to do a simple hawser rope twist.
