This is how I did Emma's hair for the 4th. It was way over the top and she got tonz of compliments. Maybe too many. By the end of the night she would just glare at people when they mentioned it. :) She isn't really into attention from strangers. I just did 3 rows of puffy braids on one side and two going back on the other side. I just added the ribbon to the first elastic and tied the rest of the elastics around the ribbon and hair. I trimmed the ribbons at the end so they were the same length as her hair. I pulled the back into two ponies and added a couple elastics that I tied ribbon onto. Soooo cute!
