We all have hair, in varying amounts, in various places. This post is about head hair!
I have long hair, its about waist height, when I was younger I refused to put it up, my mum trying to scrape it into a pony tail or plait then I started working in a bakery and in restaurants so had to have my hair up out of the way. Then after having the girls I have just resigned myself to throwing it in a pony tail and getting on with it.
The girls hair however I take a lot more time on. Every day they get sat down and faffed around with whilst I try and put their hair up. They are both very good and will sit still for the time it takes. I like to experiment with their hair so its not the same every day.
This is Sassy’s hair. she gets beautiful ringlets sometimes but other times its more like a wave which is what my hair is like.
I love her hair, its really summery/beachy.
So today I put the top bit up in a topsy turvy, then I split it and made 2 more topsy turvys either side making sure I left some hair underneath which I then plaited.
She says the top topsy turvy is a crown so she looks like a princess.
Midges hair is different (excuse the tangles it is like a birds nest in the morning!) Its quite straight compared to Sassys
Because her hair is still very fine it can be difficult to do much in her hair, so I kept it quite simple today
I got the top of her hair up out of the way, then separated the bottom into 2 little pony tails, then I let down a bit of the top hair, and bought the bottom pony tail up diagonally then made 2 more pony tails, then bought them up together with the rest of her hair to make one single pony tail at the top.
These are both pretty simple hairstyles which I resort to when I’m running out of time. I love to do their hair, and I love the comments we get walking down the street! And its functional as they haven’t got hair in their eyes/mouth/snot plastering it to their faces, and it helps fighting the never ending war against nits! I hate nits with a passion, I also every evening take the girls hair out and use a fine tooth comb to go through their hair. Just in case!!
When putting their hair up i use loom bands! We have loads here from the summer craze of last year, And now they are even cheaper than they where then so I can get hundreds for a couple of pounds! They are grippy enough on shiny soft baby hair but not so grippy that they pull too much (there is a bit of pulling but neither of my girls mention it)
Do you have any tips/advice for doing littlies hair?
