Throw Back Thursday: Top Split

I still do this hair do a lot. And I still love it! I mostly only do it on A and T. I can’t believe how much they have grown in the last 2 1/2 years! Time flies!!

I do this hair do a LOT on my younger girls because is keeps all their hair out of their faces! Do you see a theme with me?! This is a favorite with B too because her hair is so thick. A day at school and a regular pony tail is falling all over the place. This do stays!

Once again I started with a knot. I told you I use them all the time! So grab the front section of hair just like for a basic knot and do a knot.


Once the knot is done make a part right in the middle of the hair. Divide the knot in two sections. Part from the end of the middle part to the back of the ear.


Make that into a pony tail.


It should look like this.



Now do the same thing to the other side.


You can leave it like this for one version. This is great for girls with short hair. Or…


You can continue the part to the bottom and end it in two pigtails.


Little A wears this do about once a week.


This do is perfect for tiny girls too. T is 2 years old and this works great for her.


Since she has a lot of hair I do and like both versions on her too.

    Thank you for this blog! It is inspiring me to do Aurora’s hair everyday, and everyone is happier because of it. It stays out of her mouth and food, plus she looks adorable.

    Okay, is their hair wet when you’re doing it, or do you just spray some water to get it to cooperate?

      Denise, I don’t have time to shower the girls in the morning so I just brush through their hair with a wet brush! You could spray it with water too! Same thing!
