The X

For obvious reasons this hairdo is called "The X." I must admit here that I totally forgot to put product in her hair before I got started so she has fly aways all over the place. ARGH.

To get started I parted her hair into four sections. Down the middle then across the back. After I parted her hair, I put the bottom right section in a ponytail holder and the top left section in a ponytail holder to make sure that they stay out of the way.

I french braided diagonally starting with the top right section to the center. When I got to the center, and had used all of the hair in this section I did a regular braid (about 2-3 crosses) until I got to the top of the bottom left section. Then I started french braiding diagonally again. Then I did the same thing on the opposite side.

When I was at girls camp they did the whole alphabet in french braids. Now that I'm a leader the girls are asking me for it-any other letters you could help with?

This is my favorite hairstyle....

I am convincing all the girls in the neighborhood to let me do their hair everyday so I can practice, lol!

Wow, the whole alphabet? K, let me work on that. I may have to do some recruiting here. I'll keep you posted.

I actually mangaged to do this one with my daughter!! She has shoulder length CURLY hair so I didn't think it would work, along with the fact that she is wiggly (she is only 2) but it was so much easier than I imagined!
