French Ribbon Braid



About: Not all those who wander are lost. ~J.R.R. Tolkien

Hey reader!

So today I'm going to teach you how to French braid your (or your doll's) hair with a ribbon! You'll need to know how to French braid. It sounds and looks super complicated, but it's really not. You can do it! :)

Step 1:

You'll need:

- a ponytail holder

- a brush (An American Girl Doll brush if you're doing it on your doll)

- a squirt bottle of water (if on an AG doll)

- a long ribbon

- (optional) scissors to cut the ribbon at the end

Step 2:

Brush out the hair. If you do it on a doll, spritz their hair with water to tame the flyaways.

Step 3:

Take three small sections of hair from the top of the head. Tie a ribbon on the far left section. Make sure the ribbon's ends are even.

Step 4:

French braid the hair, including the ribbon. Braid all the way down the hair. Tie with an elastic at the end, and tie the ribbon in a bow around the elastic. Cut the ribbon ends, if you want.

Step 5:

You're done! You can arrange the braid however you want. If you did this, I'd love to see!
