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.
