The Crown

we had a lot of time today before church and so we all got fancy Hair, This is Little princesses woven crown. That's what they call it. It is a variation on a hairdo found on

First we part her hair from ear to eat and hook the bottom hair so it wont get in your way

Then we braided the front part of her hair into eight sections
then we parted out the bottom part of her hair and hooked it to keep it out of our way!

Then we sectioned the middle part of her hair into eight sections to match the front and put it in little pigtails, the elastic color doesn't matter here because these will be the base of your buns!

We braided the bottom section to match the same parts as the middle and top

now we hooked with an elastic the top and bottom braids to the pigtails to create the weave (I tried to number and letter them so you can see how this works

Here is another pic without the numbers, the middle braid (the fourth one from the right goes to the farthest pigtail on the left and then just take the third to the second on the left etc.)

Weave the braids to the opposite pigtails using the old over under theory!

This is how I love to do a bun, it is so easy and everyone stops me and asks me how. what you do is wrap the hair around your two fingers like so.

Hold it with your other hand while you slide it off your fingers

take a bobby pin and hook in to the hair next to the scalp, then take a second bobby pin and hook it the other way to create an X on the bottom of the curl.

Here is an up close pic

I totally hair sprayed this, tonz of hairspray and then took the pic before it dried sorry! It dries nicely though

Here is the back (the hairspray is still wet) I told you I used alot of hairspray

add a bow of course and you are done!
