Layered Corkscrew Princess Hair

About a week after our new digital camera came in, my brand new laptop died. We couldn't even get it to start up at all. OY! I had some pictures and video on there that I still hope to recover, but I'm not holding my breath. There are seriously days when I wonder if I should be blogging at all (and believe it or not, I currently own 8 blogs). Anyway, I hope to have my laptop (or a new one) back in a week. But in the meantime, I came across these photos that I happened to have saved in an email from two weeks ago. Maybe someone else will get some use out of this style. I'm sure we'll do it again (we've already done it twice this month).

In the top picture you get the basic idea. It's pretty simply and I wasn't taking photos to show how I did this one really. We were just doing a quicky style for her Halloween costume. The front section is divided into 4 squares and the second row is divided into 5 squares so that the twist braids (or corkscrews) will fall in between the front twist braids. IOW, when you pull them back, you can clearly see all 9 of them.

From here I just tied the pony off and made a messy bun out of it. Here's a shot from the side while she was getting her face painted downtown. Her little crown kinda pushed the twist braids around, but they were still cute enough.

And here are a few more shots for all of our long distance friends and family who didn't get to see the kiddos for Halloween. We miss y'all!!!
