Triple Threat

This style is nothing fancy but I thought it looked really cute and it got a lot of compliments. Basically I just did three french braids from the front to the crown and then tied them all together in a messy bun with the rest of her hair. Then I topped it up with that adorable flower bow that I made :)
She wasn't in a smiling mood at all that day until I showed her some clothes I had picked up for back to school (yes I know I'm a little early). Here she is after about 15 outfit changes and a happy attitude change!
Sigh! She looks so grown up here!

Sweet Summer Hair

Since it's summer time we've been trying to keep Kenz's hair kept neat but we don't want to spend a lot of time on it. Braids are a simple way to do this that I think is just classic and neat looking. Lately though we've gotten just a little bit bored from basic braids and decided to spice it up a little by changing over to the 5 strand braid. I've been practicing this for a while (on Kenz's Barbies!) and am finally confident to post a basic 5 strand braid on our blog. So here it is, simple sweet 5 strand braids! If anyone is interested in it I can make a tutorial on how to do a 5 strand braid. I found the best way to learn was by saying the steps out loud as a braided and practicing on dolls. That way she didn't have to sit still for long periods of time.

There you have it, sweet summer hair for a sweet little princess, and for a cute variation, add a cute bandana :)
