Crisscross Basket

 

How about a beautiful crisscross basket style to grace the head of your child for the Easter holidays?

Hairstyles do not always have to be up to be fancy, and this style not only gives a slightly complex look, it also looks very sophisticated.  Perfect for special occasions such as this and more.

Basket formed hairstyles are normally quite complex both to the eye and to achieve, so I decided to keep it in its simplest form.  Beginning with the first partition of your sectioned hair, band the bass and divide into two, then twist each one.  Now all you have to do is make sure you cross the rest of the hair over to the other side of each partition and band.

Continue this to the end of each section.  I decided to to section the entire hair into two.  If your child’s hair is thick you may want to have more sections.  However if you want to keep it looking as is in the pictures, you may have to make sure you get a band thick enough to band the hair well at the base.

Finally, once you’ve banded the end of your last partition for each sections, divide hair into 3 or more parts, depending on volume of hair at this point and then twist each one. the whole aim is to now create the basket effect end with these remaining twists.  This simply means, joining one twist from one section of the head to another twist from another section of the head and banding.  Keep joining strands of twists from one section to the other and banding, making sure you are happy with how it is taking shape.

Get creative with it and keep going joining one twist to the other and band to the next.  I directed the basket towards one side of her head, then when there was no more room left between the strands of twists, I did a large twist to complete the look and then beaded the very tip of the twist.

I’m sure this hairstyle will make your child look awesome for the Easter holidays.  Try it and enjoy your handy work.
