We love Barbie in our house! After watching Barbie and the Three Musketeers,
Aubrey was begging me to give her a 'do like Barbie's here:
It is hard to tell by the picture but basically the hair is in a smooth bun with a rope
braid around the base.
For this style we used a bun form. Don't have one? Check under TIPS for
instructions on how to make your own!
We started with wet hair.
Next, all her hair was placed into a high pony except for
a small front section.
Then I divided the pony hair in half.
And inserted the bun form around the half hair that was sectioned out.
The hair that came through the form was then smoothed out
to take the shape of the bun.
A clear elastic was placed over the bun to secure it.
I then gathered the ends of the bun hair towards the front of her head.
At this point I had three sections of hair~ the section that was
not included in the bun, the ends of the bun hair, and the bangs portion that
was sectioned out from the original pony.
Each remaining section was rope braided.
The front rope braid was pulled back and attached to the bun
and the remaining two braids were wrapped around the base
and secured with bobby pins.
Of course we had to add a fancy clip!
Our dog loves to watch us do hair!
This bun form is pretty big but isn't everything about Barbie over the top?
Total time: about 10 minutes.
I am thinking this would be a cute 'do for dance class!
