Quick Style

Hello everyone!  I am feeling a bit out of touch with you and I apologize for that.  I have a lot going on in my life right now that is taking up my time and energy and I have neglected you :(  We are going to be moving in a few weeks and it is a bit of an unexpected move so bear with me as I continue to be infrequent with my posts for awhile.

V's valentine style didn't hold up very well.  I am not sure if it is the winter time or what it is, but I only had it in for 3 weeks and MAN was it looking ROUGH this whole last week!  They were pretty small sized cornrows on top so I don't really have a good idea why the style didn't hold up as nicely as usual, but I decided to go with a one-week style this time around.  Probably a mistake when I am going to be so busy packing the next few weeks and I will need to redo her hair next weekend, but oh well!

Someone on the facebook page mentioned this style idea.  It was a little while back and I don't remember who said it, but she said she had gotten the idea from a little girl on Sesame Street.  I don't know if my interpretation of her written explanation is accurate or not, but I think it turned out cute and it was pretty quick and easy!

Cute right?

Step 1)  Part hair into 4 sections.  I did this the night before after I washed her hair.

Step 2)  Take the front right section and put in 3 cornrows.

Step 3)  Use the 3 cornrows as the beginning 3 strands of a french braid.  French braid all of the hair from the bottom half of the right side.

Step 4) Repeat on the Left!

I put two ballies on the bottom for extra bling!

Do you se that little dragon V is holding.  That is Spike, the class dragon.  He is visiting our home for the weekend.  Now he can say he made an appearance on our blog!

Crossing my fingers this style will hold up all week.  I'm not so sure about the back part!



  1. Cute! and it does look pretty quick. I don't know... I don't think the back would hold up in our house for a week! But I'm sure you could easily rebraid just the back to get a few more days out of the same style.

    She's such a doll! :D

  2. Lovely style!

  3. How cute! It looks super easy to do, too!

  4. I did almost this exact style on one of my girls a few weeks ago. I did a reverse french braids on the bottom though.
    Happy packing. Hope your move goes well.

  5. Woow, she has cute hair. I love the style, very creative indeed.
