Fancy Waterspout (with more hair!)


Sorry it's been a while since the last post. Between Maddie being pretty sick for a week, her birthday, her being sick again and day care kids, it's been pretty crazy around here!

Today we have Maddie's Fancy Water Spout on Zay. I wanted to post it again on an older child with longer hair so that you can see it really is a do that just about anyone can wear! For instructions on this one you can go here.

For the back her mom did a cute loose messy bun.

Head Band Hold Down

Zay has been asking me for a while to just do a simple head band so today we did. Well, ok, it's not just a head band but now we are both happy with it. You may remember Girly Do's Head Band Hold Down that she posted a while ago. This is our version of it.

We made 5 pony tails on the top, put the head band over, and connected them with the hair just behind the head band.

Now, to keep the head band from slipping off the back of the head you want to keep a small amount out of the head band,
then take a small omount from the band and connect them into a pony.

Twist it under to keep it from sticking out through the hair.

Style, and you're all done!

Twisty Braids into Pony tail

Yesterday I did this one in my day care girl's hair. It was sort of a crazy day so we didn't get the step by steps so I'll explain the best I can. It's a lot easier than it looks.

Start by making a 5 pony head band, twist each one under and braid it. Pull it all back into a pony tail. That's it!

To keep the pony tail smooth I put that into an elastic then added the braids after with a second hair band.

Braided Pig Tails

Ok, you may have noticed by now I have an obsession with both braids, pig tails, and having more than 1 way to dress up a single hair do!

Remember our braided pig tails and braids we did a while ago? Well, here's another spin off!

You'll have to bear with explanations only on the first few steps, I accidentally deleted a few pics!

Start by making a straight part down the middle. When ever doing any kind of braid or pig tail, whatever, I like to pull one half into a pig tail while doing to other side to keep the part from getting messed up.

Take a small section every inch or so and braid it.

Take the braids and hold them off to one side while you form the pig tails. (this way you can get a smooth pony without any bumps)

Connect all the braids into the pigtails
It takes a few minutes with all the little braids but it's a great way to dress up any old pig tails!

Not into just pig tails? Try this one instead? This also works great in a puffy braid!

While you're here don't forget about our 10,000 Viewer give away happening soon!

Happy Birthday!

It's been a long hard week so I haven't been able to do any hair do's, should have more next week.

Anyway, My precious Maddie Girl turned 1 on Wednesday! She's been a pretty sick baby all week but we did at least make her a cake yesterday. She didn't really feel like eating much of it but I got a few pics anyway. (we had to postpone her party till next weekend so then I'll get some good b-day pics)

Anyway, here's a few pics of her day, the fun parts anyway.

Here's her cake that I made for her. Certainly not my best work but she still liked it (at least her brothers thought it was perfect for her)


Eating the cake.


Here she's saying "Enough already! Let me just eat my cake!" She's still pretty sick but at least we got these pics for her birthday.

Connecty Rubber Bands into Pig Tails

Ok, this one probably looks more complicated than it really is. I'll try my best to explain it but you'll really have to follow the pics on this one. I guess the best tip I can give is the front ponies are squares, the middle triangles, and the bottom are squares again.

Start with 3 pony tails, leave the bottom section by the ears down. (as if you're going to make 5 pony tails I guess)

Take the top pony and split it in 3.


Next, you're going to add another section in the middle of the front ones, adding half of each pony and one more down the middle using the middle section from the middle pony.

here's a side view of what it should look like now.


Pull up the rest of the hair on the bottom front. Again, connect only half of the connecting pony

Make 2 small squares and conntct the back ponies, leave the front one that you just made out.

Another side view of what it should look like now.

Take the rest into pig tails.

Fancy Half Pony

I've been on a creative streak this week! Remember our Fancy Water Spout? Today's do is a variation from that.

We started by sectioning of 3 ponies, one in the front and one on each side.

Side View
Top View

Next, we took each of those ponies and made them into 1 puffy braid/ climber.
She's so wiggly this morning that this is the only good pic I could get of this step, but you do the same thing on each side and up front. (I just took a small amount of hair from the part that was for the middle pony.)

Then we took the remaining hair on the top and connected everything into that!

Back View


Sorry about the photos! I'll try to get some clearer ones later but for now she's not holding very still.

Ok, I know I am a hair nerd when I get this excited about being able to do a new do on my baby! I just have to show it off though! I'm thinking this will be her birthday do!

This little face totally screams "will you put that camera away!" But she was just so adorable that I just had to show it off! I just love having a girl!
