FLAT TWISTS WITH BEADS INTO ROPE TWIST PONIES

So for this style I had originally planned to do her whole head in flat twists going into a mohawk, but after starting I realized it was a lot harder to add beads into the flat twists and keep them looking "neat" than I had imagined. So we settled for 3 flat twists on each side going into a high pony, and then 2 more ponies in the back. I did rope twists with all of the loose hair and ended them with more beads. Even though it's not what I had originally pictured doing I thought it came out pretty cute :) 



To add the beads into the flat twists I first parted out the hair I was going to use, I then took a little bit of hair from the beginning of that section and added a few beads with my beader, I then continued on doing the flat twist adding the hair back in as I went.

  9. My daughters have straight hair at the roots like Key, do you ever use bees wax for braids especially the mini braids? Cute hairstyle, think I am going to try this this week maybe.

  10. Nope, no beeswax. I tought about it for her mini braids but someone told me its hard to wash out. So i've stayed away from it. Not sure if thats true though

  11. It is kind of hard to get out if you put a lot in. How do you keep her ends from unravelling in mini braids?
