Princess Braid

This is a classic that I wore when I was a little girl. This is easier if you start with wet hair. Part on the side. Start on the bigger side of the part. Begin with a little bit of hair, divided in two pieces. Twist around each other, adding more hair as you go. Continue twist all the way around the head. When you reach the other side of the part twist the rest of the hair and secure with bobby pins or clips to the beginning of the "crown".
When I was little my mom would add a HUGE bow (it was the 80's after all) but flowers are trendy right now, so that is what Taya is wearing. It is also cute for a flower girl with bits of babies breath or small flowers tucked in the strands. Or to weave a ribbon in with the twist.
