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!

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.

  1. This is so cute. I'm going to attempt this, but I have a feeling it will not end up as cute as yours. Wish me luck!
