BB's Braided/Beaded Headband & Pony Puff-Tail :)

Pin It
Hey all,

So, today I decided to give BB a really cute Braided Headband look. Braided Headbands are one of my favorite things to do on my girls, because they make ANY hairstyle pop to me!!


Anyway, today I was going to attempt a hairstyle for our Harvest Festival at our church, but that was a HUGE and unsightly...


So, I calmed my nerves (YES, I GOT UPSET A BIT!!!), and I tried another style.  I decided to give her a braided headband, with some beading at the end.  I then cornrowed another braid in the front and gave her a beaded design on the ends.  I decided to stay with a pink theme to finish off October with a PINK bang!!!

Our Breast Cancer Awareness Posts:


With the "partial-cornrow" I did in the front, I split it about 1/4 way down into two braids.  I then added a beaded design on each braid and rubber banded them together at the end to give it a little flair. I also left some of her curls out to really make it POP and stand out! I then gave her a side pony puff-tail that she can wear out in a puff, OR twist up and have a nice twisted tail to rock... Either way, it's beautiful!!! 

Products I used:


A homemade leave in concoction:

 -- Suave Conditioner
 -- EVOO
 -- Water
Water
Clear, Pink, Black, White Beads
(2) rubber bands
(1) Ponytail holder
Comb

TWISTED TAIL:





Her beaded loop is too cute, right??? I'm a fan of the loop... As you see here... especially on BB! :) 

So, this style will last a good 2 weeks.  I will re-do the ponytail next week to extend the style, but otherwise, she's good to go!!! 

Oh, and she LOVES IT!! :) WIN/WIN for everyone!! :) 

I hope you enjoyed this post, all!! :)
