Start braiding as normal, but add a small strip from beside the group of hair you started with.
Do the same thing on the other side.
Continue adding like that all the way down as far as you'd
like to go and fasten it with an elastic band.
Add a pretty ribbon to make the style pop with color! I used a pink ribbon to match her shirt, but you could use a red one to look more festive, or any ribbon color that matches your Christmas sweater.
Voila! A pretty Christmas braid that looks lovely!
