Barbie Hairstyle," which I've adapted for super short hair. That being said, Little Miss' hair is a little too short even for this adaptation. It's a little challenging to hold the braid with such short strands. But we made it work. Read on for instructions...
Since Little Miss' hair is in no way long enough for a complete headband, I only did the "headband" on the longer side. So I started with her default side part, and then parted out the section of hair to be braided. I decided to use a wavy part, although I did not make the braid itself curve back-and-forth with the part. Honestly, that may have looked cuter, but I completely forgot! Maybe I'll try that when her hair's a little longer. :) To make the wavy part, I first parted off the front ("bangs") section and secured it out of the way with a hair band temporarily.
Next, I made a wavy part parallel to the first, about an inch behind it. I secured the hair after this second part with a few unadorned alligator clips, leaving the hair in between the two parts loose to be braided.
Finally, I removed the hair band from the front section, smoothed it
back with water and a comb, gave it a quick twist, and joined it to the
braid with an elastic.
