I secetioned her hair in three sections. The first is just enough to make bangs, then put it in a ponytail. Then I did about a 2" section and ponied the bottom section. I then french braided the 2" section. after that I took out the bottom pony. I then removed the top pony, brushed it out started a french braid and gathered a little on the middle of the loose section to keep it secure and then just braided. S loves it. I know her face doesn't show it in the pic but she is getting tired of all the pics I have been taking.
