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.

Sunday Morning 'Dos

I'm feeling the pull to get back into hair blogging, even with the new baby AND the carpal tunnel - ouch! But last Sunday I did get in a little cuteness!

The Tiara
I borrowed this from a favorite website, Shaunell's Hair and it turned out great - not perfect, but lovely all the same. We even got a couple of days out of it, thanks to is being created with messy buns. I still don't have the hang of Shaunell's way of making stuffed buns, I still need lots of bobby pins, but it still looked lovely and my little princess was happy to show it off:

The Grecian: A Style for your "big" girls
Little Bird, my big girl, is in 5th grade now. She doesn't mind a french
braid and actually prefers a messy bun, but I really wanted a little variety that she wouldn't totally balk at. This was my solution. I created a simple headband followed by a messy bun.
Her hair is just long enough now to make the headband at the nape of the neck and the end tie into the big ponytail. Her hair is so incredibly thick that I find it challenging to secure it, but fortunately, there is a curl on the underside so we left a few tendrils hanging in semi ringlets. On school days I don't usually bother with bobby pins, they don't usually stay in her hair that well, but this morning I wanted to tame the messy bun some and about half of the pins stayed in the whole day. Still for a quick and easy style, I think it looks great on my big girl.
