Hi, everyone! Today I am going to show you a fun hairstyle to try on your doll: the 6 strand weave braid.
Here is how it turned out on Saige. (I know, Saige has been in a lot of my posts lately. But this really works best with a doll that has long, slightly wavy hair. If it's straight like Mckenna's, you can still do it, but I think it's easier with wavy hair.
First, divide your doll's hair into 6 equal sections. I did it by dividing it in half, then dividing each half into 3 equal parts. Brush each section so it looks nice and neat.
Now take the strand on the left.....
and start to weave it through the rest of the strands.....
going over strand #2, under strand #3, over #4, under #5, over #6. Now it will be your 6th strand and the 2nd strand will be your first strand. If that doesn't make sense, see the photo below.
Here I have done it twice. The first one is already weaved through, then I repeated and put arrows on the second strand to show you how it's going over and under the other strand.
Here, I have done it a few times. Just keep repeating until you get as far down as you want. Each time you will end up with the left strand being on the right. Keep it there as your 6th strand, and start over from left to right.
It's starting to look weaved.
And here is the completed braid!
I hope you enjoyed this hairstyle!
