Braid Buns and Mini Diva Giveaway!!

I usually plan my daughter's hair around the clothes that she is going to wear, today she decided to wear this simple kind of old fashioned shirt I made her. The fabric it's made out of reminds me of pioneers, so I decided we needed to come up with a braided up do and we have also been into doing buns lately so this is what I came up with.

1)Start by parting the hair down the middle, like you are gonna do pig tales secure one side with elastic while working with other side.

2)The take a side and section that into 3 triangular sections. You can see it in the picture. Then french braid each section from the bottom up so that the hair is piled on top of the head. Secure with elastic.Then braid the pony tale and wrap it around making a bun and secure with bobby pins. Repeat to the other side.
That's it your done it took me about 20 mins to do this style and it turned out really cute. Once I was done I added some ribbon and a couple of clips.

I love braids because they hold all the hair back out of her face and they last through lots of rough housing and play.

I also wanted to mention a giveaway that Hair for the Mini Diva is doing right now. She has some fantastic bows that she makes herself, I love her bows because they are very unique some I have never seen before. If you want a chance to win some bows go on over to her blog Hair for the Mini Diva and enter Good luck!.
