As you can see i simply created pig tails using butterfly ballies. THEN i cut two separate sections of yarn that each measured double the length of her hair. I folded the yarn in half and then i wrapped the middle part of the yarn around the base of her pig tail twice so that the loose end pieces were coming from the back of the pig tail. I then separated the braid into three sections and i added the left two pieces to the left section and added the right two pieces to the right section. the middle section contained just hair. I braided a regular three strand braid making sure the yarn was on the top of the braid as i braided so that it would show from the front of the braid and not be hidden. I did this until the ending of her hair and then i pony tailed it off and cut the longer pieces of yarn that hung passed the pony tail holder. I repeated this for the other pig tail.
In about 15 minutes the style was complete and the tiny splash of color that is never permanent is a fun staple in our house and always comes about in various ways. Diva R loves having "color" put into her hair and she thinks of it as dressing up or role playing :)
