Pig Tails


Today Charlotte wanted pigtail buns. I really don't have a clue how to style girl hair so this is my best attempt. It is not great but for a four year old it works. Then Charlotte decided that Eliza should have pig tails and Ruby decided she wanted them too. Apparently pig tails are the secret to getting Ruby to leave her hair alone. When I do one pony she has it out usually in about 5 minutes and definitely the first time she is in the car. Today she kept her pig tails in through 2 car trips and 4 hours of school! This is a record! Who would like the job of informing her she needs more hair if she wants more elaborate styles. I'm not sure she is going to like that news and she can be quite a force to reckon with when she doesn't like something...

If you have any tips on girl hair I'd love to hear them. My bun consists of putting hair in a pony tail holder and then twisting it around the pony tail holder and securing it with a second holder. I can also do pig tail braids. I have no clue where to even start with french braiding or anything more elaborate. Do they have a book for that? or a web site?

Jenn, who does much better with boy hair.

Jenn,

I am completely with you. I am clueless when it comes to french braids, buns, and any other sort of "fancy" hair styling. At least you don't have to deal with curly hair in the midst of it! I have NO idea what to do with it. Sorry I'm not much help - just wanted to offer some empathy!

They look adorable! I love pigtails on girls that age. I'm the opposite - I love doing girl hair! We have an unwritten rule that you can't wear the same style 2 days in a row. And boy do we have hair stuff!http://brennaandmolly.blogspot.com/2006/12/hair.html

Someday I'll do a photo shoot and give you some ideas!
