Three Strand Twist Up-Do Style With a Pony Tail
The name pretty much sums it up, i was going for something new cute and girly. I had also started making bows from time to time and was quite proud of my first complex bow as i liked to call it. I decided that i would begin with coating her hair generously with distilled water since it was dry prior to styling.
Then i parted a side part from her forehead back until i reached the point behind her ear then i parted a straight line across the top of her head until i reached the same spot on the opposite side of her head behind her ear.
I spritzed a little bit of our Juicy Spritz throughout her hair and then applied some Bee Mine Luscious Balanced Cream Moisturizer to each formed section individually to help slick her hair smoothly into the rubber bands and seal in the moisture already applied. I rubber banded the top sections i created and smoothed out the back section with a tad more Luscious Cream and then i constructed three strand twists from each of the two sections formed which i put into a pony tail with the back section.
When the pony tail was complete i spritzed a little more distilled water on her curls hanging from the pony tail to liven them up and so i could finger separate her curls for more bounce and volume. (The bow pictured i created and now Diva R LOVES when i make her bows <3)
The twists stayed very well in place and didn't unravel as they normally would being freely hanging this was a simple and quick style which is suitable for girls of all ages and easy enough for beginners to grasp with no prior knowledge.
I left her baby hairs just laying down in their normal fashion of choice that day which really complimented her style and all in all this style was complete in 15 minutes. Added the bow and was finished. Another great aspect is that this style lasted for a few days with minimal frizz and by simply changing the bow to match her daily outfit, I dressed up the style making it look new :)
I am a sucker for side parts and pony tails. Trying new things is something that we make an active element in our household as this consistently expands our horizons and helps to keep optimistic tones as well.
