it's not a fish boney
on a hot day
kidding and singing aside, this was just an experiment but it turned out ok. i was originally attempting a waterfall braid but gave it up. my tomboy can't hold a hairstyle that isn't tight. i don't know if it's her being too active or just her hair being so straight. either way, waterfall braid doesn't seem to hold.
instead i just french braided across the front taking only small sections from the top into it. then back across the same way. next time i'll just continue around the bottom.
i have a heck of a time braiding under her hair without her tipping over, which she isn't thrilled about. so i just left the french braiding underneath her hair. i just braided it and brought it under to the other side, then continued french braiding from there. each time i just added small pieces from the outside. it curved around itself pretty easily. then i just braided the ends together.
there ya go! now go braid around the pony, (and maybe sing the song while you do.)
