Let me know if there's a legitimate name for these. I've never seen them done before so I'll at least pretend they're original for the time being ('cause I know it's really not). I'm sure most everything we do has been around for thousands of years, actually.
UPDATE: Okay, thanks to Amy (in comments) I went searching and did, indeed, find it elsewhere. So if you wanna check out how someone else did it look HERE and HERE. I guess we all figure these things out on our own eventually. LOL
First I divided her hair into four quadrants. Make sure to wet the hair down thoroughly for neatness.
Next, I undid two diagnal sections because I will braid from one side and end on the other side. I did 2 or 3 links of regular braid in the cross-over section and then started adding in hair from the new section to french braid on down.
Here's what it looks like with one braid finished.
Now I took down the other two sections and braided from the left front section down to the right back section. See below:
Add whatever embellishments (flowers, clips, ribbons, etc.) and if you want to braid in ribbon, be sure to start at the beginning with it.
