This is an old picture but since I haven't been doing this hair blog for a long time but I have been doing hair for awhile I found some old hairstyles. My daughter likes to pick her own hairstyles sometimes and this is one of hers.
She has a small french braid across the top of her head and then we used YES an old crimping iron to do the rest of her hair.
I first started by making ringlets all over her heads. I purchased a really neat curling iron a while ago that had groves in it that makes perfect ringlets for little girls hair.
Next make a small french braid across the front of her head.
Take half of her hair and pull up into a ponytail. I then used a small elastic to make somewhat of a messy bun. I pulled out some of the ringlets and used bobby pins to keep the ringlets perfect. Then I took a red ribbon and attached a safety pin to the end. I then went in and out of her ringlets to give the swirl look.
One of our Mom-Stuff Team has posted her Twelve Days of Christmas for you. You can use it as is or any part of it as neighbor gifts. We would like to thank Amber for this contribution. We know you will love this. For more gift ideas we have added some more simple and inexpensive gifts in our Family Fun section titled Friend gifts.
Last year I decided I wanted to bring some joy to a family’s life that I knew was struggling due to the troubled economy. Everybody needs a little bit of cheer all the time but especially at Christmas. I focused on family time to bring some joy to this family each evening. This is my version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
My version of the 12 days of Christmas is very different than the original version. I took a variety of poems and printed them out on Christmas stationary. To use my format buy stationary with printing across the tip as in a header. I then bought or made an item that goes along with each poem I have listed. The items I included at the bottom of each poem. I put each item into a Christmas sack with the tag tied with curly ribbon. Each day I would deliver the poem and the item to my family’s house. My hope was to create a family bonding time for each of the 12 days before Christmas and add some Christmas JOY. I hope you will enjoy this and have a Merry Christmas.
As most of you know who have toddlers know it is very difficult to come up with new ideas especially when they have thin straight hair. So here we go with another idea.
Since she is only 2 it is sometimes hard to get pictures so these are all taken after the hair has been done so I will do my best to describe what was done.
Around the front of her face I made 3 ponytails.
Once the ponytails are in place I took the middle ponytail and separated into 3 pieces. Take one piece and pull it towards the far side ponytail and take half of that ponytail and secure with an elastic.
Do the same thing on the other side. This gives you a total of five elastics.
If this doesn't make sense please ask questions and I will explain further.
