First let me begin by sharing with you that #1 I am new to the hair obsessed club and still learning from my "Hair Heroes" and #2 I am a working mom (who by the way is NOT a morning person!!!) I am finding that practice makes perfect better. Meanwhile my girls and I are enjoying our time together and we invite you to join us on our journey. Sometimes we do fancy and sometimes we flop but for us it's the process.

A Cap full O' Braids

This is actually yet another recycle! My princess does NOT want me to take out her little braids on the top of her head. They've been in for 6 days now! The last few days I've put her hair in buns, braided it, added a hairpiece scrunchy, and this morning she was running around with her hair all wild and knotted. This picture at least shows her after I brushed the tangles out.

You can see she still has the hair headband going on so I left that when I parted her hair and put it in two low ponytails.
Then, just for fun I made three braids. Two of them are regular braids and one is a twist braid. My little princess was a little ancy so I didn't try to learn how to do the fishtail on her that I wanted to.

The little princess wanted ringlets but didn't want her hair to take a long time so we compromised - I braided and then curled the bottom of the braids. We love our new spiral curing iron.

If we weren't planning on putting the hat on I would have made her hair at the top neater and wet it down, but since it was going to get covered up, I didn't spent that much time on it.

Cap on and all smiles. This only took about 7 minutes to do.
We love this beanie - we got it at a cute little boutique in downtown Lake Orion, Michigan. They have some wonderful new items as well as resale clothes. You can visit their facebook site here.
