For a birthday present, Aubrey's friend brought her to get a hair and feather extension. She was very excited to show off her new bright pink hair so we came up with this simply sweet 'do.
To start, I parted her hair and grabbed a section in front of and behind the extension, but not including the extension. This was done to ensure the connector bead would not be visible after the style was finished.
Next I french braided around her crown, only taking sections of hair from the top. The braid was ended just short of the back of her head.
Then the other side was braided the same way.
I purposly did not have the braids end directly together so there wouldn't be a part in the finished style. Next I secured the two braids along with the middle section of hair.
And took out the ends of the original braid and added some curls.
In the end she was able to show off her new extension and her hair was kept up and out of her face!
Total braiding time: 10 minutes.
