Here is a beautiful style that I am very proud of:) This one took a little less than 4 hours to create. It is the cornrow side floral pony style. I braided micro cornrows that all came together to form a pony on the left lower side. I added the floral clip for the final touch. A coworker of mine gave me the floral clip that N. has in the picture. If you are anything like me, you can't afford (nor do you want to) buy hair accessories like these for a crazy amount of money. So, from now on I will be making a trip over to Michaels (craft store) and buying some nice artificial flowers, as well as the clips, and putting them together myself:) This style turned out amazing and it was well worth the 4 hour wait. My daughter N. loves it as well:) Do you have any tips or ideas on inexpensive/creative hair accessories to make at home? Let us know.

Here was a style that I did for N. in between washes this week. Her last hairstyle (the updo) was only in for a short time, so before I washed her hair again I did this ponytail zig zag braid style. I just parted a zig zag part down the middle of her hair, braided it and added a few big beads. Then I braided two tiny braids in the front (one on each side) about 3/4 of the way down, leaving the ends out to show the curl at the end. Then I put the two sides of remaining hair up into two ponytails and added some hair accessories.
This was the original updo I style. I changed it up just a little bit and settled on this for Easter morning. The original updo I style did not last until the next morning, it was already frizzy and coming out. I decided to take down the back half and leave it out, curls in all:) I did the same pony tail up top, and tied the ends into loops. Then left the ends out, natural curls and added the red roses.
