I am really busy this week so this is a quick post of my absolute favorite hairstyle.
I saw the "X" Marks the Spot post by Jenn over at Girly Do Hair Styles and fell in love with it immediately! The only problem; I really struggle with dutch braids. In order to pull off the look without the work, I began with seven rope braids. The top of each rope braid was started with a pull through using my trusty "topsey tail" to give it a more finished look.
I then gathered all her hair that was not included in the braids into a low pony and attached the rope braids to it. Everything after this point was the same that Jenn did~ laced it up with ribbon and made a messy bun. Since rope braids are fast and easy, this style actually didn't take that long. Aubrey wore this for the entire weekend and was still receiving compliments on Sunday.

Jill, please e-mail me and let me know if you would like the flowers attached to bobby pins or lined alligator clips and I will get those out to you this week!
Thanks again for all the enteries! I hope you have a good hair day!

I have to confess; I cannot do a side twist braid. No matter how many times
I practice, it never turns out! So Aubrey could still have the "princess crown"
look, we came up with this easy style.
We started with crazy hair this morning due to yesterday's braids.
After it was brushed I made a small side pony.
Then another, adding the previous pony as we went.

I am soooo excited to announce our first giveaway!
Because I am
cheap frugal, I make a majority of those accessories!
How about in a cute pig tail 'do?
Maybe for a mother/daughter matching hairstyle?
That is a total of four chances to win!

This is a quick and easy up 'do! It seriously took me 10 min.
total from start to finish and I was taking pictures too!
To start, I broke out my trusty "Topsy Tail" (bought for only $1 on ebay).
Then made a high side pony, secured with a clear elastic.
Next, the pony was divided into three.
One section was threaded through the topsy tail.
And pulled through under the pony.....
but not all the way,
just until a nice pouf formed.
This was continued with the other two sections on hair.
Depending on how long your girly's hair is, you may want to make more than
one pouf with each section. Aubrey's hair is waist length and I made a
total of three poufs with each section.
The ends were then tucked in with pins.
We added her dance flower clip because she was
having costume pictures taken this afternoon.
After pictures, we spent a few hours at an indoor playground.
This style held up through the entire day!!!
The next day I used the same technique but instead of one pony to start
out with, I put in three. This is the result:
Aubrey's hair is thick so we were able to pull off the look with
three ponies. If you are working with hair on the thinner side,
I would recommend just one pony.
Hope you have as much fun with this style as we did!!!
