Lesson 96: Peacock Bun

Belle named this one herself.  Begin with a low side ponytail.  Add a ribbon to the top.  Our ribbon is from Gimme Clips from their Gimme Braids line.  It has a loop sewn at the top and comes with a mini bobby pin.  If you don't have one, you can tuck the end of a regular ribbon into the hairband, maybe tying it if you think it will come loose.
Braid the hair, being careful to keep the ribbon showing at the outside.  Fasten it off with a clear elastic.
Wrap the braid around to form a bun.  Leave the tail sticking up to make the "peacock feathers."  Insert bobby pins to hold the bun in place.  If you push in a pin and it won't go because the ribbon is in the way, pull it back out, and try a new place.
Tuck the ribbon in to hide it or wrap it around the whole bun.
