Loops, Braids, & Ribbon....oh my!

For her first day of dance camp Aubrey wanted a
fancy  'do.
We combined Girly Do Hair Style's  For Kimberly 'do with Princess Hairstyle's  Patriotic Ribbon Cornrows and our own style. This is what we came up with.
To start, I braided a "X" on the top of her head and again on each side.
Then, divided the remaining hair into three ponies and attached the braids.
After that the ponies were made into loops using our Topsey Tail just like our  Super Easy Up 'Do . Lastly, the ribbon was added.
It actually was a pretty simple 'do and lasted through not only dance but the next day of YMCA camp too!

Super Star

We came up with this style for the 4th of July, however anytime your girly wants to be a super star this would be a fun 'do!

Because the parade Aubrey was going to be in for dance was in the morning, we actually started this the night before. First I made three ponies.

I split the top one in two and then put bands in until they were long enough to connect to the side ponies.

Next, I added three more ponies~ one on each side and one in the middle.

Then four more. All of the ponies became anchors. The pony in the middle was split, bands were added, and then attached to the two ponies beneath it,  just like the first top pony was. This allowed me to end the style with two pigtails.

My original plan was to add two big bows to the pigtails but they seemed to get in the way of the style.

Total time: 1 hour (luckily it was really hot out and Aubrey was happy to sit in the AC watching a movie)!

Even though it took a long time from start to finish, this style lasted three days so I think it was worth it!
