Simple Braid with Pony

Sorry I don't have a front view. Shimmy was eating a tomato and did not want to take a frontal view.
Okay 1st part the hair in 3 sections.

Now Take the two front section strands and split them in two. and combine the two middle sections together. So you should have a total of 3 strands for a regular braid.
Once you have your braid. Pull the braid and the remaining hair into a pony tail.
Add your favorite clip and your done.

I'm sure that there are plenty of people out there that can do this style with their eyes close. But these are ideas for those of you that are beginners and have not done girly hair styles before and for those who want a different idea on how to style their little one's hair. This is a great way to start off your little girl in style. Its a simple way to get her hair in a pony and add a little pizzaz by adding a braid and a hair bow to it.

Julie, in response to your email, as to where I keep my Shimmy's hairbows...well, I did decorate a cork board with ribbon to match Shimmy's bedroom. I ended up bringing it downstairs to promote my hairbows and well, as of yet I have not returned it to her. She reminds me frequently so I'll be making one for her soon.
This cork board, I purchased at Target. Since, I own quite a bit of ribbon, I decided to use ribbon instead of fabric. This is the first cork board I decorate and I'm no expert but I just used Loctite Gerneral Purpose Adhesive Spray and I also reinforced with a hot glue gun. It was a little messy so I think I will end up using a different glue next time.
If cork boards are too bulky and you're looking for a simple way to store hair bows,, has cute hair bow holders. They are a great a way to enhance your little girls room, while keeping your bows in one place.
To all who have email me best wishes with my new blog! Thanks! Your support is very much appreciated!

Have a special occasion? Graduation, Wedding, School Promotion. This hair style is very stylish, fun and glamorous. Its starts off with a upside down french braid and its topped off with large loose curls and finished off with a side flower clip. Stay tune for the full tutorial on how to accomplish this look.


Do you sometimes see a hair accessory you like but you don't know how to use it? Or your not sure what style of hair its best used for?
Well, in this blog I will attempt to help, by researching and finding new and different ways to add all those cute, colorful and sometimes difficult to use hair accessories. I will show you different hair styles from up do's, everyday wear and anything in between. I will give you some ideas on how to add boutique style bows, hair spins, headbands, tiaras, etc.
Please know that I'm not a professional hair stylist. I like to accessorize the two princess in my life and after trying different hair styles on them I decided to share some of my strategies and knowledge. If you see anywhere on my blog a hairstyle that you consider yours, it probably is. If I see a cute hairstyle out on the street, on hair magazines or on the net, I will go home and try to master it. If I do I will share my outcomes.
I myself have an online hairbow boutique ( Most of my hair do's will be accessorized by my own product but I will also show you how and where to get other hair accessories as well.
Please feel free to email me at with any new links, questions,comments or hairstyle ideas you might have.

The Beginning.

Where to start? I suppose from the beginning, so you can follow me on my journey through this new endeavor.

I'm going to try to download a picture, then once I do that I will play with the background. I know what I want, so that shouldn't be difficult!

Here I go! Wish me luck.
