This one is just a quick and simple double ponytail braided into three braids each with ballies at the ponytail bases and Gabby Bows on the ends of the braid.
Little kid (no hair added) box braids have become my specialty. I’m getting faster and faster at doing the braids. Mayci always asks for rainbow beads. She likes to be colorful (she regularly tells her oldest sister she doesn’t have nearly enough braids because of course Haley needs rainbow beads, too).
After reading a biography about the Williams sisters, Mayci wanted her hair done with ALLLLL the beads. I was worried that even though the white beads were extremely lightweight, doing them around her whole head would just be too heavy at her age. So we compromised and put in two thick double braids in the back. I was so worried the bands holding the beads in place would break at school (they didn’t).
This is another quick and easy style. One ponytail up on top and two in the back with each one split into two braids. Ballies and big yellow beads completed the look.
I absolutely love Mayci’s hair up in twists. It’s truly my favorite style to do tiny twists all over her head. Takes a long time, but totally worth it.
For Mayci’s recital I did box braids with some fancy beads (sadly the color on several of the beads wore off rather quickly so that was a disappointment). I was able to pull it up the way they wanted for the show and she was just totally cute.
Another box braid style, this time for Fourth of July with a little bit of red, white, and blue in the beads. I love how the same style can look so fresh with just a different bead color.
Another quick style inspired by someone on Instagram. Ponytail with colorful elastics, beads, ballies, and tons of braids… so much is going on with this colorful style. I even learned how to secure ballies to the end of her braids when I did this one. So cute!
