A lot of the time lately we have just been pulling Miss M's hair to the side and flipping it under. We love to add accessories from Snapbandz. This hairdo is a simple variation. Start by parting the hair on the side to the crown. Next make another part about an inch or so parallel to the first. With this section of hair you will make 3 rope braids. To make a rope braid, separate one section of hair into two pieces, twist both pieces the same direction separately and then twist them together the opposite direction. I have my daughter hold each rope as I do the next. Then part the hair from the crown to the ear, comb smooth and add a small elastic. You can do this step before you make the rope braids if it is easier. Add the 3 rope braids to the pony and secure again. I just used my pinky to flip the hair down through the pony. You can use a topsy tail or back of a rattail comb for this as well. I almost always flip Miss M's pony tails...I think it makes it lay nicer and look more polished. We added one of our adorable boutique bows on a skinny band from Snapbandz. If you haven't checked out the new boutique bows yet you really should! They can snap onto any of our headbands or onto one of our clips. www.snapbandz.com We have lots to choose from and are adding more all the time.

We are loving M's new short hair! There are still lots of things you can do with shorter hair. For this we started by parting the hair on the side but close to the center. We combed it to the side and parted from the crown of her head to her ear and added an elastic. We left the elastic a little loose so we could flip it under later. Next we went about an inch or so from the first part and made another. With this hair you will make a braid. It works best with damp or wet hair and I use a little hairspray as well. Comb the hair towards the ponytail and start a plain 3 strand braid. You can also do a twist. This is very similar to another hairdo we did when her hair was longer. Add the 3 strand braid to the pony with another small elastic and then flip under. You can use a "topsy tail" or something to flip it but I usually just use my pinky finger. ;) We used the straightener to curl the ends of her hair under a little. We finished off the look with a deep pink daisy from snapbandz.

So M has been asking to have her hair cut short like mine for a while now. I finally gave in and we went for it! We ended up cutting 8 inches off and would have loved to donate it but couldn't because she had had a perm...that is our goal for next time though! I love her new hair cut and still have fun styling it! I took some pictures of her a few weeks ago for her birthday and she modeled some amazing new boutique bows for me that we have added to our inventory on Snapbandz! There are many more on there as well. If you see something you like make sure to grab it quick because a lot of them are one of a kind. We hope you love them as much as we do! Check them out at www.snapbandz.com under boutique bows. We look forward to adding some fun new short hairstyles to the blog soon! In these pics I used my flat iron to make some quick curls and we loved it.

Here is Miss M's Valentine do for 2013. I started by getting the hair damp and parting it on the side. Then I parted it on the opposite side to make a box on the top of her head. Using the back of my comb I "drew" a heart inside the box created a heart shaped part. Get it? Then I combed it into a ponytail at the bottom of the heart and loosely put in an elastic. To do the heart shape you want to flip the hair up using a topsy tail, rait tail comb or your pinky finger. I had my daughter hold this hair out of the way as I combed the rest of the hair into a side ponytail. Then I sectioned the top pony tail into two pieces. Each side makes a rope. Remember to do the rope just twist both pieces of hair the same direction and together the opposite direction. This definitely works better with damp hair and I use a little bit of hairspray as well. After I did the first rope I had my daughter hold it as I did the second. Then I took both ropes and brought them down to the bottom pony tail and secured with an elastic. I used short bobby pins to pin the ropes down and to create a heart shape. I took a long section of hair from the pony and wrapped it around to cover the elastic and secured with a small clear elastic and pulled tight. The cute little ribbon hearts were so easy to make. They are just glued to a bobby pin! I stuck them in and used a second bobby pin creating an "x" to make sure they held all day. To finish it off I used my straightener and curled the pony tail a bit. I bet she gets lots of compliments at school today! Happy Valentines Day everyone!
