Newer than “Dutch” braids is the fashion now so popular of wearing the hair drawn softly to the top of the head, caught there with a ribbon, the top strand plaited in the back hair which is slightly, rolled and caught three inches from the ends with another bow as illustrated, in the “hair-dress” of the demure little miss in the upper picture. The little girl whose hair simply doesn’t “fluff” will find this rather a difficult style to manage and it may be more satisfactory for her to braid the back hair loosely, double
it up and fasten with a big barrette. Barrettes, by the way, are much smarter in the world of little women than ribbons. Much newer than pink or blue or white gibbon are bows of “old” blue, white polka dotted with blue, or gingham plaids.
