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.
