Braided pigtails

Everybody in our house is getting sick! Oh, no! This is why Her eyes are so red. She will be sick by tomorrow.

Now for hair. Start by parting a "box" in the front. And another part straight down the middle of the back. Put the back sections into ponytails.

Part the front section again into 2 equal sections. Braid each of the two sections.

Pull braids back into the ponytail on the same side.

Braid 3 braids into each ponytail.

Now take the braids and flip them up. Secure them with an extra elastic. I put bows to cover the elastics. Then I used molding wax and ratting on the hairs above the bows.

Hairdo for short or long hair

Today Julia had a friend over to play. I had the chance to do short hair, so I took it!!
This is basically the same hair do just a little modified for the length of each girls' hair. Also, there is a giveaway at Oh So Girly. Please mention That I sent you.

This, of course, is Julia. First part the hair straight down the middle. Start on one side at the bottom. Make puff braids going up her head. I made 3 sections. Repeat on other side.

Now take the rest of the hair and make a horizontal part ending at the temple area on each side. Put the back sections into ponytails, remember to bring your puff braid into each ponytail.

Take the front sections and cross them into the ponytails on the opposite side.

This is how the crossed over hair will look.

Put each ponytail into a messy bun.

Here's the back. Okay, now for the short hair.

Do puffy braids up the back, same as above on Julia. Instead of crossing over the front pull all hair into the ponytail on it's own side. Rat the ponytails and hairspray.

They had a lot of fun showing off their hair together.

My little ballerina

I have had some e- mails asking me what products I use. Since the only store around is Wal mart (a very small one), I don't have a very big selection. These are what I found work best on my daughter's hair.

She wanted to be a ballerina today.

I first parted the hair in a kind of zig zag part. Then I put the top into puff braids.

I pulled the rest into a side pony. Added a bow, and almost done.

If she had straight hair, I would have curled the ponytail, but since her hair is curly it worked well here. Add the bow. Very pretty and simple.

A pretty flower do

I didn't really have anytime to take pictures this morning. So you get to read how to do this one. Julia asked for a flower, so this is what I came up with.

First put all of the hair back into one ponytail. Braid the ponytail into 5 braids. I ran some pomade through each section of hair before I braided it.

Flip each braid over and secure into the ponytails elastic. Move braids to where you want them. I threw in the pretty hair accessory (for lack of a better name).

braided piggies

Today I realized I was out of detangler. So I wanted to share a tip with you. I put a small amount of conditioner into a spray bottle full of water. Shook it up and sprayed it on her head. It works very well.

This one is pretty self-explanatory. I first put the front of her hair into 2 ponytails.

I put the back into 2 ponytails as well.

I used the 1st two ponytails to make a braid and then separated them at the bottom to put into my big pigtails.

Braid the back pigtails and that is it!!!!!! Very fast, but cute.

an easy tiara do

She is still in her pajamas, but we did get dressed right after this.

First make a part down the middle of her head. Then make another part horizontally kindof far back on her head.

Now put another part right down the middle of the part you already sectioned off. Separate the back section into two again. Now pin back all sections besides the back 2 on each side.

Make 4 small ponies on the right side. Take the ponies and separate into 2 pieces each. Make another row of 3 ponytails, Adding the top ponies to them.

Repeat with the other side.

Now bring all of the hair back into 2 messy buns. Sorry about the part. She was having a wierd day, she just wanted to be moving I guess! LOL!

Here is the side view with the hair pulled back into the messy buns. Add bows. I really couldn't figure out how to explain this so I hope with the pictures too, you will understand it.

The precious girls club

I wanted to tell everyone about this great site I found. It is called The Precious Girls club. It is a place for little girls to make their own character and house. They also get to play fun games. They also have a place where you sign up and are totally involved in what your daughter is doing on the site. It is completely safe. You can also send your daughter messages and help her earn points for doing good things. She can use the points to buy new furniture for her house. Go and check it out. My daughter just loves it.

2 braided hearts for valentines day.

My house is very busy this week. Even more than usual. In my house we have 3 kids, my husband and I, my mother, 3 dogs and 4 cats. Plus my husband has 2 friends that think they live here. I threw this one together because I had very little time.

Firtst part the hair straight down the middle. Put into 2 pigtails.

Put each pigtail into 3 braids. Don't put the elastic at the ends too tight, you will be taking them out again soon.

Take the two outside braids and secure them at the top with an elastic. Shape them into a heart shape. Secure them with an elastic at the bottom, putting the 3rd braid right down the middle.

Now, take out the elastics holding the bottom of the braids. Her hair is still wet in this picture, but when it dried I curled the bottoms. You could even weave ribbon threw the braids for a little something extra.
