Hannah’s Hair Cut February 19, 2009

Filed under: Family,Hair — Melissa @ 4:52 pm

Last week we found hair on the floor. Fine, blonde hair. A quick check of Hannah’s head and sure enough, a nice chunk of hair was missing from the front. It mostly looked like she had wispies so I left it alone.

A few days later Hannah gets her hand on some gum. After failing to get the last chunk out, I just cut it out. It left an even bigger hole on the left side of her head. I decided to just cut it all shorter..and put in bangs. She’s pretty cute. 🙂






More Hair Do’s October 28, 2008

It takes me a long time to do “fancy” hair.  I’m learning…I’m not that great at it…but it does bring my girlies such pleasure.   I’m at least doing “fancy” hair for soccer games.

The morning of a soccer game, Samantha sits here and goes through multiple hair blogs and finally chooses one that she thinks I can do.  Ha ha.  I keep forgetting to save them so I can show you where I got the idea.  Because I certainly am not coming up with these on my own!!!  And I want to give credit where credit is due.  I promise to do better at this in the future.

I did realize while looking for some of the do’s that I never took a picture of this Beautiful Braid Flower. I did that. I really did. It looked pretty much like that too. It took me a while to figure out how to get those loopy things to be just right and the top one didn’t stay up there for long. But it was there. And I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of it!!!

Jennifer mentioned the puffy braid in the soccer pictures from a couple weeks ago. Actually it’s just pulling the hair into multiple ponies until I got to the back. The hair is parted so that from the back/top it looks like a star. I loved this one.

From the side it looked like a crown. It wasn’t hard to do…just lots of ponies. You start at the front and put that hair into a pony. Then section off the second part and pull the pony from the first part into the second pony. and so forth on both sides until you get to the back and then pull it together. I’ll be doing that one again.

Here’s the one we did for the game tonight.

Part in the middle on the top of the head. Then separate each section into two and braid back. My sections were a little low and made the final ponies be low. Next time I won’t have so much braid from the top and then the ponies can be a little higher. The ponies were actually buns in the original post that I can’t find, but because they ended up so low on her head, the buns looked funny. I like the criss-cross.


Girly Do’s October 11, 2008

We – that is Samantha and I – love looking at the hair do’s on Hair Today. Such cute girls along with cute hair styles. We have been wanting to try some but I needed supplies!

I finally got some gel and combs and hair thingies (though I need more!). First I did Hannah’s hair based on this post. Hannah’s hair isn’t as long on the sides and is very fine. I was barely able to get the braids across the top. And then the ends were so little and just stuck straight up, so I tucked them under instead of trying to curl them.

I took the part a little too far down. I curled the bottoms. That night I went ahead and left the braids in and the next morning they didn’t look too bad..but we were going to the park so I pulled the rest up into a little curl pony.

Samantha’s was one we saw recently and just knew we had to try it! Like the author we really needed clear pony tail holders. Where I got the instructions.

It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Hair Today gives instructions on the twists here. Samantha loves her do and has kept it in for a second day. Looks good too for having slept on it!
