The hair with no name

I haven't posted a hairdo in a while. We created this one last week and it was so easy, I decided to post it for you guys.

 Start by parting the hair from ear to ear.  Put it in the front to keep it out of the way, then pull the rest into a ponytail.  (If you are wondering what is over Julie's mouth, it's an inhaler with a spacer.  My asthma kids do this 2x a day to keep their asthma in check.)
I took that front section and did a triangle kind of part - you can kind of see that on top of her head.  Then I french braided both side.  You could do a regular braid as well.  It would work the same.
The part (and she's not in pain, just dramatic...and wiggly, hence the hand holding her head still for the picture.)
Take the right braid and wrap it over the top of the ponytail and secure it underneath with a bobby pin.  Do the same for the left one.  Make sure that the bobby pins cross when you put them in so they won't fall out.  I'm sorry that I didn't get a front picture.

It only took about 10 minutes to do and held up pretty well.

I still haven't figured out what to call this one.  Have any ideas?


  1. I can't think of any great names for this beautiful hairdo! Julie looks like a little princess though!

    I love the American Girl post you did. We loved visiting American Girl when we were in the US and we had lunch too. It is such a beautiful store. How cute that they gave the Wenkinz a seat too!

    Hope you have a great weekend,

  2. Very cute! I love the name criss cross applesauce too. It's adorable just like the hairdo!

  3. Call it the "Erika can't do this to save her life" hairdo....
