Double The Fun Braided Headband

Usually Aubrey's hair is in an updo style but today we were looking for something a little different. This is what we came up with.
To start, I sectioned out the front of her hair and pulled the rest into a pony. Then I parted that hair down the middle of her head and made puff braids on each side.
This is what the top of her head looked like:
Next, added an extra elastic to each side.
Using another elastic, loosely connected the two tails while crossed over each other.
Then, just braided each tail.
Next, I got out my trusty Topsey Tail and used it to weave the braided tails in and out of the puff braid. (sorry for the bad picture)
This is what it then looked like:
I took the ends of the braids and connected them using a clear elastic at the base of her head. If your working with shorter hair, you could make pigtails and just at the ends to them.
Curled the ends of her hair and we were good to go!
This was actually a really quick style! Curling her hair took longer than the rest of the 'do.
It also held up well through the entire weekend!
