I know I’ve shared this before, but Victoria loves wearing her hair down. She prefers it that way, so I really do try to come up with as many hairstyles as I can that create a half up half down look because I know she likes it that way.

When I did this particular hairstyle on Victoria the first thing she said to me was, “we’ve done this one before!” But what she wasn’t expecting was the red and green ribbons on each end of the braid. 🙂 This is why I love hair accessories. You can take a hairstyle you’ve done dozens of times and change it up in a second!
