I’m all about creating hairstyles that are simple and easy. I know there are tons and tons of hairstyles for the holidays that you can create, but not all of them are simple. It’s fun for me to be able to come up with hairstyles for Victoria that are pretty, but also easy.

I love braiding Victoria’s hair with a ribbon, but I’ve found it easier to actually use knitting yarn because it braids so much easier. I love how it looks and (mostly) I love how simple and easy it is to braid it through the hair.
