star hair in time for the 4th of July

star hair step 1

Here it is, the tutorial for star hair. I got the idea for this hair style from this great website. I get some many comments and questions whenever my girls wear this hair style.  We usually do it for independence day every year.  It does take more time but is so worth it!!

Step 1: make a square section of hair in the front.  I work with damp hair for this style.  It really helps with frizzies and flyaways.

Step 2: split the remaining hair into 4 quadrants and pull them into a hair tie like so:

These are the five points of your star.

Step 3: split each little pony in two and braid it.  You are then going to bring it over and attach it with the braid clock wise.  Just like this:

star step 3

see how the braids are starting to form a star shape?  Continue all around and let the ends just hang in the middle

Step 4: Once you get your braids connected all the way around gather all the ends from the middle and make them into and Easy Bun.

This isn’t the best picture for this but see how the braids form the star shape?  This is pretty cute left like this but it can be hard to tell for sure that it is a star.  So we need to emphasize the star shape.

Step 5:  Take a ribbon {you need this fairly long} and wrap it around the braided sections.  I usually start and finish on the bottom points.

wrap all the way around all the braided sections and then secure the ribbon.  You now have this great star hairstyle:

    Really CUTE! I may be a tad too old for this hairstyle… But then again, I'm a bit of a rebel, kicking and screaming against feeling/acting "old" anyways, so I may just give this a try sometime! (That, or at least remember it for any granddaughters some day!).. Thanks for sharing how! ~tina
