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.

Tuesday Morning (Day #2)

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!!!)

My Goal for the Week - How many days can I reuse/recycle the hairstyle ?!?!

Day #2



We only have four days of school this week. I’m wondering if I can get 3 or 4 days from this hairstyle. This may be a problem as it has been snowing and the girls need to wear hats outside. We will see. . .

Category: 2nd Day ‘Do
Time: 5-7 minutes in the morning
Needed: Twist braids from the night before, two elastics, bobby pins, brush,
comb, hairspray, flower (optional)

I kept Princess’s hair in from yesterday, see link here. This morning I took out the pony tail, brushed her hair minus the twist braids and put it back into a pony tail. I did not wet down all of her hair, I did wet the comb and just wet down any fly away wispies – especially on her neck.


Then I twisted her pony tail and wrapped it around itself to make a bun. I secured the end with a bobby pin.


Next I wrapped the braids around the bun. I was going for a bit of a swirvy pattern. (Like how I just make up terms – I should start my own dictionary.) I bobby pinned those to the bottom of the bun.
Then I untwisted the bun a bit and bobby pinned it so that the bun was bigger, looser and closer to the head.

I hairsprayed her hair and tried to control the worst of the wispies. This may not pass muster with some of my hair heroes – but for this working mom – it looked very nice and the princess was happy.


Little Bird was not exactly cooperative this morning. The best I could do was take out the messy buns and brush her hair.

(By the way - this is pretty much how she looks most morning - she - like me, is NOT a morning person. I, however, have learned not to growl at the world! - usually;-)


The pony weave still looked cool - but as for the rest of it. . .


I did add some bobby pins that had flowers hot glued to them to add a little pizzaz. . . You be the judge!

Actually my princess does not have curly hair - it's on the thinner side but it does hold a curl rather well. I got the curls the other day by twisting and wrapping her hair into a bun when it was wet and Whaa-LAA - beautiful curls. I also get fantastic results with rag curls!
