We started by taking her hair and dividing it about the middle of her eyes. We combed down the sides and combed the section in the middle back. I then took the middle section and took a section in the front that was large enough to start a braid with. I braided her hair 3-4 times and then added more hair from the middle section. I did this until we were at the back end of the crown of her head. This is where I stopped adding hair. I continued to braid the hair all the way to the end.
A few weeks ago my daughter had, what she called, her first big girl birthday party. I think she called it this because she is starting school soon and she got to pick out her friends present at the store. She wanted to look her best and kept asking me to do different hair styles for her to see what she wanted to wear to the party.
We started with a more party type hairstyle that seemed to be very punk. Thus the name the Punky Pony. This was fairly easy to do. For her hair it is easiest to braid while wet since she has hair that is half curly and half straight. If it is weight we can put some leave in conditioner and avoid any knots.
Here is what the side of the hair looks like. You can spray again if you want to make sure the hair stays in place.
