Braided Flower

Modified from Piper's Hairdo's. It actually started out as just me braiding some pieces and ended up looking like Piper's..which makes me happy. I know it's not the same AT ALL, but I've loved that one from the second I saw it. So I SORTA found a way to do it. (Edited to add-I also just realized that Hair Today did a version of it too)

We CAN do a full pony but it's really sad looking, so we don't. So half pony.



I pushed some hair to each side and found the longest pieces (the middle ones) to braid. Pomade.


Then braided and tucked two on top and two on bottom.


Then I undid the side pieces I was keeping. Since they were short I thought they'd work best for the regular hair parts instead of trying to braid them. So I tucked one forward


And one at the bottom and one on each side. Then left some pokey pieces because they were too short, and I thought they were cute spiky anyway.



Bending forward.

Cute. I tried to do that with my daughter's hair, but she only had enough for 2 tiny braids. And those are tough when she's 3 and won't hold still. I'll try a version of yours though. Thanks.

I too have loved the braided flower but wasn't sure if my girl's hair was long enough. I will have to for sure try it now after seeing it on your cute little one!

I'm so glad I found your site because your versions always are so much better than what I end up with. =) I'm going to try this one tonight.
