Down to basics

A few people asked if I'd do some simpler stuff and some of the basics because their shorty doesn't have as much as mine. So I did these all in one sitting which should cover the excuses of A- hey those are sloppy and uneven, B- nice faces, kid and C- Uhm what's with the gross looking bows.


The closer in the middle piggies. These look good with boutique bows..makes them close together.


Yes. It IS a Christmas stocking.


These are piggies pulled down further on the head, the bows didn't wanna stay in this one today. In this one you can have the bows in front of the piggies (like I did in this) or you can have them on the sides (so on the top of the head).


Piggies in back


Some people didn't quite 'get' my version of messy pony. (Ya it's a Christmas tree.)
So moving on from the tree. Stop staring at it. Thanksgiving is next weekend ok.
No really, moving on.

Wrap the rubber band around a few times and then hold the band..


Like this


Then roll it down over the hair.


Then just tug here and there to messy it up


Straighten the hair underneath to sorta 'fan' out.


Yes. More trees. Look at the pony. Focus.




This one looks GREAT with a small bow in front, perfect for ballet class.




I did a video too..I was just going to do the video but some people don't like watching videos and some people NEED videos, so there. Now we have both. Note that shorty agrees with my tutorial.

Well..shoot. Zig Zags puffy braids..or something

So really, this was gonna be MUCH cooler than it is. I WAS going to do this all around her head, but she would NOT sit still. So I took a bunch out and stuck with the top, which wasn't as effective looking. I'll post it anyway, and you can see what I was GOING to do and try that for yourself.

This is what WAS going to happen.


Did it all the way around..


Then I did a sort of zig zag with them..so they slanted off to one side. You can see a remaining green band over her ear, that was later removed along with all the others except the top three.

Then I did one more zag and went back the other way.



As you can see, the plan was to go all the way around the head, which would work if your girly will sit still. Then end up in the middle wherever you want..I'd probably do some big curls and pin them in the middle if I were to do it.

Wha? A new post?! Slanted piggies

Ya. Halloween. Stuff. N junk. I really have no other reason for not blogging. Oh and her short hair. BUT you will be SHOCKED and AMAZED that this one worked..pay attention 'short in back' girls :D

Jauna did this one and sent it to me. YAY Yet another that works for thin curly and thin straight!

Here's Jauna's first and then I'll post mine and step by step :)





I made a slanted part to start. I didn't ask Jauna, but I'm not sure this is possible WITHOUT making your part first.


Then just climbers.


Same across the top! The most important part is watching where you end up. You finish the bottom one right above the ear, you gotta finish the top one right above the other ear. We were in a big hurry so the parts aren't straight and I didn't try to get all the little strays back in the ponies. Also, I think I did more elastics on the bottom than the top. Next time I'll get the numbers the same. (yup just counted. 5 top 6 bottom)
