My kids love the "X" braid. And the princess asked for that one a lot, until now. Now she loves the "J" braid. The Prince (my son) came up with the idea when he saw the "X" braid. He couldn't understand why I made an X...since her name doesn't start with X. :)
When I was done, I just added ribbon around it for accent.
This is the plastic needle that I used to wrap the ribbon around.
I'm DaMomma. I have had a love of doing hair since fourth grade. There was a girl in my class who always had beautiful hair. I was mesmerized. :) Now I have a princess to beautify, and she loves it...life just couldn't get much better! :) BTW, the princess has a brother, affectionately named 'the boy,' who can be seen in the background of some of the pics.
