Pulled through and twisted out!

Yikes!!!!!! Where have the days gone? I feel like I have been working and practicing the violin with my daughter and nothing else! That means it's time to make time. Does that make any sense?

This is actually yesterday's hair-do. We had stopped at a little convenient store after violin lessons to let my daughter pick out a treat for practicing so hard this week. Not to mention she had such a great attitude about it and wanted to only work on the things she actually needed work on. Most of the time it seems like they want to take the easy way out...but she really wants to learn. She has done gymnastics and ballet and this is the first thing she has actually really loved:) She talks about it all the time and we practice 6 days a week. Well it was so cute, because we were standing next to 2 teenage girls and one of them said "that has to be one of the coolest hair-dos I've ever seen in my life". My daughter thought it was the coolest thing that TEENAGE girls liked her hair:)
We started with regular ol' piggy tails.
Next we did a pull through knot on each side.
Take the hair from the ponytail and split it into 2 pieces.
Using those 2 sections twist both sections out. (The left one left and the right one right.)

Twist until tight and hook with an elastic. We repeated this 2 more times. You may need more or less depending on how long your daughter's hair is.
We curled under the ends and added some hair things.

An adorable front view! I think I just might die without her:)
For fun we threw in a picture of how her nails looked today!

Thanks for showing this one...I think this is one I could actually do! Although I might have to wait until my daughter's hair gets thicker.

We did these a while back & I loved them because they looked like "fake fishbones." And they are quick and easy! We did them a little closer together so you couldn't see through them! Very cute.

Very cute! I think that one is going to be on the list for church on Sunday.

Niyah loves it when other people compliment her hair. People always ask where I come up with her hair-do's and I'm like, "Oh, there's this hair blog...." And they look at me like, "What's a Hair blog"

It's really funny!

Purple is so her color! How do you get their hair so shiny and neat? I have boys, so I haven't a clue!

You never cease to amaze me!! I only wish I had someone to do fun things to my hair when I was a little girl. Having hair that hung down to my knees, I only got braided pigtails. Period. Your dear daughter is so spoiled, I wonder if she realizes that?

JOLENE said...

If you really think about it, her hair looks like it was crocheted like a chain stitch!!!

Merynne said...

This is a great style! I love it!!! Thanks for your comments and kindness as I jump back in the game here;) I am hoping to post some pics of my custom clothes and hairbows soon! Again though, love this 'do!

I was able to do this one on my daughter, even though her hair is shorter and very, very thick. She loved it!

Honestly, I like the nails better than her hair! Just kidding! :) I adore the hair! I have to wait till my daughter's hair grow long again. This is such a nice style.
