3 twist wormy updo

This one is super simple. I started with 3 flip under knots in the front. I put the rest of the hair up in a pony tail. Then with the hair from the 3 ponies I made 3 ropes and attached them to the big pony. With the hair in the big pony I made a messy bun. The only thing I did different this time I took the hair and split it in half and folded the top half up and the bottom half down and secred it with an elastic. So it looked like a bun with a bunch of hair sticking out around it. Then with the hair sticking out the top I took sections and twisted them, wrapped them down over the bun and secured them with bobby pins. I left most of the hair on the bottom just sticking out. So it looked like a messy wormy bun. I topped it off with a cream ranuncula from Snapbandz. Simple and cute!

Ropes Braids and Piggy Ropes

This one started off with six ponies up on top.

I took the hair from the outside 2 ponies one one side and made a rope braid and connected it the the middle pony on the opposite side.

I did the same thing on the other side. The two ropes overlap on top.

Then I parted the remaining hair down the middle and made two pony tails leaving out the hair from the top. With the hair on each side that was left out I made a rope and connected to the ponytail on that same side. Then...with the hair from each of the big ponies I made a rope and folded it up and attached it back at the base leaving the ends sticking out on top. I sprayed them with hairspray to make them more spikey. I added two puple ruffle anemones from to finish off the look. I used these flowers snapped onto clips. She looked way cute and it stayed in very well!

Long time no blog...

I apologize that I have neglected this blog lately. We have been moving...again! Hopefully now we are all settled and I can get to work! I have also been doing a few craft shows. The people in North Dakota are really loving Snapbandz! If you live in the area we will be at the Airport International Inn in Williston this Friday and Saturday the 12th and 13th. The show goes until 8pm on Friday and 5pm on Saturday. Come see us! We will have lots of new Christmas items and will be adding them to our online inventory very soon as well! I also thought I would include a picture of my cute kids from Halloween. We had Little Miss Muffet and her Spider. I love Halloween!

Criss Cross Ropes and Braids

This one was actually prettty simple. I went back about and inch and part the hair ear to ear. I made 3 ropes and 3 braids. I just did every other one a rope or braid. To make a rope braid just part the section in half, twist both sections one way, and them twist them together the opposite way. Make sure to have the braids angle toward the opposite side of the head. I continued the part from the front all the way down making two pony tails. I added the 3 ropes/braids from the right to the left pony tail and secured them with an elastic. With the ropes/braids on the left I crossed them over and under each of the ropes/braids from the left and then secured them to the pony tail on the right. I topped it off with two small white ranunculas from

5 simple braids and 2 piggies

I parted the hair on each side and back to the crown to make a traingle. I split the hair in half from side to side with another part. I added an elastic to the hair at the crown. I took the hair from the front of the traingle and made a simple 3 strand braid and connected it to the back pony. I did the same thing on each side of the first triangle braid. Then I took the hair from the middle pony and split in in half. I took half the hair from the middle braid and the hair from one pony and did a simple 3 strand braid. I did this on both sides. Then I made two low ponies with the remaining hair and and added the braids to them. I clipped in two light green daisies from

Braid Knot with 2 VERY messy buns

I took these pictures for my friend over at Sew Divine Boutique. She made this adorable outfit for Miss M! I thought it turned out so cute! Go check out this outfit and many others at
For the hair do I made two piggie tails in the front and flipped them under. I took the hair from the piggies and braided them all the way to the end. I had my little girl hold them while I continued the part back and made two more piggies. I took the two braids and tied them in a knot then attached one to each of the second set of ponies. I made some VERY messy buns and topped it all off with two antique blue hydranges from For the buns I took the hair and back combed it, wadded it up and added a few elastics to hold the shape I wanted. I sounds very technical! :) We got lots of compliments this day!

Braid on top hair headband

This is so simple. It is done just like the two rope headband but I just did a single 3 strand braid instead. Part the hair on one side about an inch or two back and from ear to ear. Comb the hair smooth and spray with hairspray. Take a small section right at the part line and create a braid and lay on top of the hair. Pull both sides tight and attach together at the base of the neck with a small elastic. (Note: the small elastic also helps keep the headband in place on little girls who have trouble with that.) I added an narrow orange crochet headband with a bright pink daisy with polka dot center on this one. I love to mix and match the colors of the headbands and flowers from Snapbandz to match each outfit. I used my 3 barrel curling iron to create some waves. Pretty simple!

Cute little model

I did another photo shoot of this sweet little girl today. She is now 6 months old! Here's a sneak peek of a few new items coming to Snapbandz!
This one is a large black daisy with a polka dot center and is snapped onto a narrow black crochet headband.

I have used this flower before but am just now adding it to our inventory! The eggplant daisy with jewel. This is on a cream nylon headband.

Last but not least is a pink hydrangea on a thin headband. I am just now experimenting with these little headbands. Anyone interested?

3 flip under knot braid with hair headband half updo

Wow! That is a long name. I will have to work on being more creative. For this one you want to leave the hair along the hairline out about an inch back. This will be the hair headband. Go about another inch back and part the hair from ear to ear and make 3 flip under knots.

Then pull them out of the way or have your daughter hold them. Pull the remaining hair on the top half of her head back into a ponytail.

Then take the 3 pieces of hair from the flip under knots and braid them together and connect them to the pony tail. Then take a piece of hair from the pony tail and wrap around the elastic to hide it. This time I just secured it with a clear elastic and pulled the hair down a little to hide the securing elastic. To finish off part the hair you left down at the hairline and part it on the side. Wet it down and comb to each side. I used some hairspray to keep it smooth. Take the hair around to the base of the neck and secure it with a little elastic. I topped this one off with a purple anemone from

The Shelby Do

My bff Brandy was kind enough to let me share these pictures of her daughter Shelby with you! She started with 5 piggies in the front. Pulling the hair from the piggies out of the way she pulled the rest of the hair up into a pony tail. She split each of the 3 middle ponies in half and made links and connected them to the large pony and did a big messy bun. This looks so cute! She added her favorite flower (sky blue daisy with jewel) from to top it off! Thanks for sharing Brandy!

2 ropes 2 messy buns

I started this by sectioning the front third of her hair from ear to ear. I placed the elastic on the far right.

Then I took the second third of hair and split it in half and made two ponies. Next was the bottom third of hair with the elastic on the far left. You should have four ponies total. I did this with her hair damp and used lots of hairspray!

The I took the hair from the bottom pony and made a rope braid and connected it to the middle right pony and made a messy bun. (Remember for the rope braid just split the hair in half, twist both pieces the same direction and twist them together the opposite way the individual pieces were twisted.)For these messy buns I just wadded up the hair and added a clear elastic to hold it. I pulled a different pieces until it looked the way I wanted. I used a couple elastics on each bun.

To finish it off I added a white daisy from by the front elastic.This hairdo lasted us two days!
