Thanks again Amber for getting Toys for Tots in on this!

A family close to where I live has just lost their home due to a fire. Not only is this fire a devastating loss to the family but they lost a 9 year old child as well due to complications of the H1N1 virus just before Halloween. The mother had mentioned that all the kids Christmas gifts have also been lost in the fire. Their two children, ages 4 (girl) and 13 (boy) were home at the time but managed to escape unharmed.
You can view the news article here.

I am putting together a clothing and to y drive for the kids to be delivered on Christmas Eve. You can also send any donations to the family directly to Jennifer (Kitchen) Kuesters father STEVEN KITCHEN at 155 East 800 South Orem, 84059

The children are a 4 year old girl and a 13 year old girl.

I am asking for donation of new or gently used clothing, new toys and books, blankets, coats, etc. If you would like to bring them to me email me at kristiceron at yahoo dot com and I will send you my address.

I have emailed to the family and am waiting a response for clothing and shoe sizes. I will update this post when I get that information.

Easy Up!

Here's another very easy, elegant updo.

Start with a pony tail making sure that the hair is smooth and there's no bumps.
Next, flip the pony tail into an upside down topsy tail.
Smooth the hair down over the topsy.
Secure with a clip.
If the hair is long enough curl the hair that is coming down from the clip.
And there you have it.
This is one that is perfect for any age. I actually do this on myself for church!

Simply Elegant

This is probably one of the easiest dos here! I've seen it around in the malls and even on commercials this holiday season. I think it probably looks best with the hair curled but Zay really protested the flat iron this morning so we left it straight.

Make sort of a slanted part to the side.
Pull all the hair off of just one side into a pony tail.
Make sure you leave the rest down.
That's it. It's that simple!
And as you can see this works great for babies too! Look hoe curly Maddie's hair has gotten!

I made this video compilation of some of my favorite dos. And because my blog would not be where it is today without all my hair blog friends I even have a few of you featured at the end of the video! (sorry, I didn't have room to feature more or I would have! I'll feature different blogs on the next video)

Are you getting family pictures this holiday season, or even just pics of your little ones? If you live in Utah you HAVE to check out Tina! She does the most fantastic work! These are of her pics. Very beautiful, I love how she seems to have an ability to capture babies like nobody else.

Go on over to Bumps and Bundles or Tina's main site to see prices and some other great pictures.

Just to say it, I am not getting any compensation for this. In fact, she does not even know I am featuring her!

How to make a messy bun

There's so many different ways to make a messy bun. Here's how I do mine.

Twisty Braids with Messy Buns

Today's do is a twisty braid with 2 messy buns in the back.

Make your rope braid just to the ear. Gather the hair from the bottom only.
For this do I made an "s part", just draw an s line all the way down. I find it's best to put one half of the hair into a pig tail while you are styling the other side, that way you don't mess up your part while styling. Once you have the braid all done connect it into a pig tail.
Make each pig tail into a messy bun.
Total time should be 10 to 15 minutes.

How to make a straight part

We all know that the part can either make or break a great hair do but sometimes making a straight part down the middle is rather difficult. I prefer to take it in steps, doing the part in small sections at a time.

(sorry for the bad video quality. I will make a better video next month when I get a better camera.)

Lady Bug Hair

Maddie is going as a lady bug this year and what's cuter than a ladybug with little antennas? Maddie WILL NOT wear antennas so I did her hair into them! Very simple, just make 2 quarter pigs on top and stick them straight up! (I just used water to hold them up, a glitter gel would be cute if the baby isn't going to be eating her hair) This is best on short hair.

(forgive my parts, we're not used to morning kindergarten so I just threw it all together!)

Princess Hair

Today was the Kindergarten Halloween party. I saw this girl and just HAD to get pics of her hair! It was just too cute to pass up!

Start by making a pony tail on the top (leave the front and sides down)
Twist the top pony tail up and wrap it around into a cinnamon roll type bun.
Twist up the sides and pin down with bobby pins.

Curl up the back
And there you have the perfect princess do! Isn't she just adorable!

(and a BIG thanks to her mom for letting my post her do! She is so adorable!)

Would it be a pain if I....

Changed the name of this blog to Maddie Girl Hair dos? The whole Maddie Girl Fashions started when I was doing my hair bows and tutus but then just went full on hair dos only.

So, before I did anything I wanted to see what all of you viewers think. Would it be too much of a pain (for me and you) if I changed the name of the blog?

Heart Beat Part with Stuffed Buns

For today's do we have a halloweenish Heart Beat Part. (this is sort of like a zig zag part, just a little more heart beat ish) So you're going to draw this

into your part like this.
Pull it into pigtails and finish it off with Shaunell's Stuffed Buns.
And there you have it. A halloweenish hair do in less than 5 minutes!

Braided Flower Girl

I've had this big obsession with braids lately. I've gotten pretty good at it again though I still need a ton of practice! (especially on the fancy ones that you have to turn them like these!)

To start a braided Flower Girl do you want to start by making 5 equal ponytails on the top of the head. The placement is totally up to you whether to start with a middle part or put the top petal in the middle of the head.
When you're ready to start braiding make an L part in the section. The L is where you are going to turn the braid. Leave about 1 inch of hair at the bottom of the L. Braid each one into a flower petal. When you're going around the L you want to take the hair from the outside only. That will allow you to turn it without the braid getting all messed up. Here's another view of them all braided together.
Pull all the braids back into a hairband. Form that into a bun. Slightly curl out the wispy ends of the flower. You can always tuck them under if you don't like all the extra fluff covering the flowers. The side views.
And, a nice front view.
