Celtic Knot Hairstyle – By IrishAG

Hi everyone!

A few days ago, I posted Freckles and Flowers (a photoshoot).  This is a tutorial for the hairstyle I did on Julia.  I call it a “celtic knot”, but it’s also known as a five-strand braid.  😀

As usual, the first step is to mist your doll’s hair with water and brush it out.  Make sure it’s tangle-free, otherwise seperating the sections will be very difficult.  (I’ve learned this the hard way.)  🙂

Now seperate the hair into two sections, one above and one lower.  Tie off the lower section.

Seperate the top section into five equal parts.  Set the two left hand strands to the side.

Start braiding the two right hand strands and the center strand.

Then, take a strand from the braid and braid it with the two left hand strands.

Go back and forth, braiding first the right side, then the left.  (You’ll probably need to do this a couple of times before you get the desired look.)

When you’ve reached the desired endpoint, tie off all the strands with an elastic.

Remember that bottom section?  Untie the elastic, and arrange the hair however you wish.

I curled Julia’s hair a bit.

Now your doll has a beautiful celtic knot hairstyle!  I hope the directions were clear enough, and feel free to comment with questions!
