Bunny Hair with double tri-braids.
Today is Tuesday and Claire has ballet after school today. So, buns it is.
Start by sectioning a small amount of hair at the front of the head a band from in front of the left ear to the end of the right side of the bangs and clip out of the way. Then pull all the hair in the middle of the head. Section and clip out of the way some hair at the base of the neck from below the right ear to about 2/3's of the way to the other ear. Now take the remaining large chunk of hair and part down the middle and clip out of the way. You can start at the top or bottom, but both of the smaller sections need to be sectioned and secured with elastics into three smaller left to right sections. Now you have three small pony tails that need to be woven into three basic braids and secured temporarily with bobby pins or alligator clips. At this point you need to take the larger section on the left and smooth the hair as if you were going to make a basic pony tail. When the hair is smooth, pull the three braids from bottom into the pony tail, trying to make sure the braids lie flat. Secure the three bottom braids and left pony tail with an elastic. And now take the smooth the large section of hair on the right and incorporate the top braids in the same way and secure. You can stop there, or braid each of the two large pony tails into basic braids and secure. Then wind and twist each braid up on itself to form a bun. Secure with bobby pins. Add a pretty ribbon. Ta Da!
Claire really didn't like the one while I was working on it because it we were working with the fine short hairs at the nape of her neck and according to her, there was a lot of hair pulling. So, try to be careful. But, let your model know, it'll be over soon.
