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!

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.
