Divide the hair, as if you are doing pig tails. Then begin one pig tail. I always start on the right. I then begin to braid going down. I act as if I am doing a pigtail. When I get about to her ear I start to curve the braid to the left.
Add a cute outfit coordinating flower and viola you have a perfectly pretty braided up do for your little. I hope my directions were understandable. I have never really done a tutorial for a hairdo before, and I am sure it will take some practice to make them simple. If you have any questions let me know and I can try to explain it better.
