Braid on Pony Short Hairstyle
We are loving M's new short hair! There are still lots of things you can do with shorter hair. For this we started by parting the hair on the side but close to the center. We combed it to the side and parted from the crown of her head to her ear and added an elastic. We left the elastic a little loose so we could flip it under later. Next we went about an inch or so from the first part and made another. With this hair you will make a braid. It works best with damp or wet hair and I use a little hairspray as well. Comb the hair towards the ponytail and start a plain 3 strand braid. You can also do a twist. This is very similar to another hairdo we did when her hair was longer. Add the 3 strand braid to the pony with another small elastic and then flip under. You can use a "topsy tail" or something to flip it but I usually just use my pinky finger. ;) We used the straightener to curl the ends of her hair under a little. We finished off the look with a deep pink daisy from snapbandz.
