Crazy Braids

Before we begin with the style, don't forget to check out the giveaway going on here!
See why I call these crazy braids? It drives me crazy getting the parts straight and getting her to sit still while I do it. But I absolutely love this style and think it's such a pretty look to do with a little sundress or to wear to church.
To Begin: Part the hair about an inch back horizontally from ear to ear: (My part looks wider because of her bangs)

Start at one ear french braiding taking from only one side and braid all the way across and keep normal braiding when you run out of hair to add. Tie it off with an elastic and do another part just back from that:
Start at the opposit ear this time and braid across just like above (Yes I know my parts are very crooked!)
Do two more sections in the back going back and forth in direction. You should now have two braid ends on each side of her head:
I didn't show this step but take both braids and tie them together then tuck underneath and pin into place with a small bobby pin:

I love your blog. I'm still trying to teach my Mum to french braid my hair, 1 attempt and she gave up! I can do them but I can't get the front tight enough so it won't fall out as I'm outgrowing my fringe.
Loving this style, Kenzie is adorable. And I absolutely had to laugh at the bright orange hair bow on your baby boy! Hehe! great stuff.

Thanks for the comments ladies :) French braiding definitely takes time to master, but once you do it's an amazing thing to know.
