Hello all,

I've decided to start a blog about doing little girls hair since it is something that I love and something that I do EVERY morning.
To begin, let me tell you a little about my family!
My husband and I have two kids. A seven-year-old son and a five year old daughter.

I had been doing hair professionally for quite awhile. However, when we moved to a different state temporarily, I didn't want to get a new state license for just a short amount of time. I decided to take a break from professional hair while we were here. My daughter, though, is the age where her hair is just the right thickness and length to do all kinds of fun stuff, so I keep my skills in practice. I always get the famous question "How did you do that?" from a lot of people, so I thought I'd share.

I started this blog to help those moms who have a hard time doing their little girls hair and need some easy tips and ideas to make their daughters look done up for school or church. I probably won't have many fancy things here, like some other great blogs out there have; this will show the more simple and easy ways that I find to get hair done. I will also have some hair tips every once in awhile that I personally use. If any of you have any tips or different ways that you do things, please comment; it REALLY helps!

Cross braid

This hair-do I started and then thought hmm... I should take pictures of this one, cause I haven't done a post in a while. So this was a last minuet hair-do so the pictures aren't great but it's pretty easy.
I started with the zig zag part on the side 1/2 way on the head (I use the top of the ear to be a good stopping point) then I just flat french braided one side of it and braided most of the way down.
I did the same on the other side. (don't ya love how she draws and does her reading while I'm doing her hair?)
After that, I parted the rest of the hair in the back down the middle and made a pigtail adding the other side with it.
I did the same on the other side.  I figured out that it looks better if the braid is tightly pulled with the pigtail.
The cross is supposed to be a little to the side, if I had attached the braid tighter to the pigtail you would've been able to see it better. 
Then I braided the rest of the pigtails half way down. I like the looks of that because it will leave a cute curl at the bottom.
I obviously added some flowers but you could do a messy bun or just leave it down and put in some ribbons. I've done both and their both cute.

And the back
I've also had the part down the middle all the way down and had the criss cross even down the center, it's also cute, I just like to part on the side because I don't have to worry if it is center; it's a great thing when your short on time.

Flips and Braids

It has been a while since my last post.  We have had a crazy summer and have been gone most of it.  Hopefully I will be able to post more now that our schedule is back on track.
School has started and there has been a heat wave! You know it is a heat wave when the school districts are contemplating if they should close school or not.  Our school didn't close but the kids were still coming home very sweaty.  So everyday I've tried to think of different way's to keep her hair up so she can stay cool.
This is one that I thought of that turned out pretty cute.
I never got a good shot of the back since we were in a hurry so I'll explain it the best I can.
First, I parted the hair on the side then horizontal from ear to ear.
On one side I took a section about 1 to 2 " and did a flip.
And on the other side.
Then I basically just french braided the hair down, using the flip ponytail as the start of the 3 strands.
I did this on both sides.
Then I just added it all together in the ponytail in the back.
 Once I put it in the back ponytail I did a flip then I braided it all the way down.

That's it!  It took me about 10 min.

I saw this star on a different website and I thought I'd give it a try. She wore it to church on Sunday and we got a lot of "how do you do's" on it so I thought I would post it.  I did it a little different on Sunday but it was similar.
It's pretty easy so I'll show you how I did it.
 I parted it in 3 triangles on the top of her head.
The next section under that I parted it down the middle adding the ponytails from the top, parting the middle triangle ponytail in half.
I left the bottom section down because I thought it would be easier to do the star without it, but I'm sure if you added it all together it would work too.

 In order to do this hairstyle you should probably use a craft needle, I found it in the knitting isle and they're just big and plastic, mine came in a pack of two.  I couldn't imagine doing this style without it, but if you're really careful you might be able to do it without.
The ribbon I used was about 1/4" or 1/2" thick and I measured it about 3 feet.  The needle is big enough to thread it though easily.
I did the star with making it just like you draw them on a piece of paper.  I started on the bottom left corner, and then worked it up to the middle.
Then threaded it down on the bottom right.  It's really tricky to get it flat without it twisting so do it slowly.
After that I took it up to the top left and then over to the right.
After the top right corner is looped, bring the ribbon back to the left corner where it started.
I decided to bring the rest up to make pigtails, and added some cute ribbons (I had a lot of extra ribbon so I just wrapped it around to make a bow and cut off another piece of ribbon to tie a bow on the other side to make it even). On the 4th I had red white and blue ribbons, but today she wasn't dressed 4th of Julyish so we just did white and pink.

Zig-zag part with twists and french braid

On this style I first parted a zig-zag part in the middle.
Then I parted a straight part horizontally from ear to ear.
I took one of the sides and twisted it back wards.
I did that on both sides.
Then I took a V shape section from twist to twist and put it in a ponytail adding the twists.
(don't you love my daughters tattoos? )  She is actually holding the twists away so I could make the ponytail smooth.
Then I took that ponytail and added it into 3 sections to start the braid.
Then just start french braiding to make it a out ward braid.
After that I braided all the way down, and added a flower at the top.

3 row flips

This one is really easy and quick.  It took less then 10 min.
Basically just start with parting it in half from ear to ear.
Then part it in 3 triangles on the front half of hair.  Just leave the bottom half of hair tied off so it won't get in the way.
With each triangle section part in in three horizontal rows. Do a flip on each section adding the ponytail from the first flip to the next flip etc...
Do that on each side.  Try to part even on the 3 sections, I think it looks better and more even.
(Sorry that some of these pictures are fuzzy, sometimes I can't get my camera to work well with the lighting.)
Then part the bottom half in the middle to make pigtails and split the middle triangle ponytail in half and add  each half to the pigtails. Put in some bows or flowers and that's it.  I think it would also be cute with messy buns too.
This one holds up really well, sometimes I can get 2 days out of it.
