Bug March

So, whenever I use the good old fashioned "topsytail," that my mom bought via infomercial back in Jr. High, Piper calls them "bugs."

Since there is a line of "bugs," she came up with the name "Bug March." Or Aaron calls it "The Spinal Column," which ever you prefer...... If you don't have a topsytail, click here for a tutorial by Girly Do's.

Anyway, I start by parting a square on the top of the head, then I secure the rest of the hair in a ponytail holder so it doesn't get in the way.

Then I do a diagonal part from front to back, mostly for symmetry, then I know that I do 3 bugs on each side.

I do the first ponytail and pull it through with the topsytail, then I include the first ponytail in the second ponytail and pull it through the topsytail and so on....until it looks like this.

I just found your site today. I have a 1 1/2 yo with a lot of hair so I was looking for new hair ideas. She's a little young for some of yours but I'm going to keep them in my pocket for when she gets older.
Also, my little sister makes the cutest bows...bugs, flowers and seasonal clips. Take a look:
