My baby is finally getting enough hair for me to do it!  I am so excited!  I love doing the cute little baby girl hairstyles, making pony tails and braids, so I am starting to have a lot of fun with her.  She is almost two though so getting her to sit still is sometimes difficult!  She likes to play with the squirt bottle so I just let her have that while I work on her hair and that usually gets her to sit still for a few minutes.  🙂

Tools needed for the Four-Square Ponies

  • Brush
  • Comb
  • Squirt Bottle
  • 4 Small elastics
  • Hairspray
  • Bows, clips (optional)

 So to start off I squirt her hair with water and then I use the comb to make a part down the middle.  (Isn’t her hair so sad and thin!  But the sad thing is this is so much hair for her!)

Then from here I divide each side in half.  So I have a front section and a back section on each side. Then I gather up each front section and make a pony tail securing it with an elastic band.

Now I just make two more pony tails in the back.  One on the left and one on the right.  When I gather up the rest of the hair into the pony tail I pull the front pony tail towards the back and include it into the elastic to connect them.

TaDa! All done! A cute and easy baby girl hairstyle!  You can add flowers or bows to the back two pony tails if you like. I usually do but I don’t have anything to match this lime green shirt so that’s why I like the colored elastic bands. I can just find some that will match her outfit and then I don’t have to add a bow but she still looks cute and matchy!
