Todays Do, Sweet and Simple!

Today I wanted to see Her sweet curls so after her bath I put in some curl boosting mousse, twisted the front and added a few clips. That's it, sweet and simple!

Today's do

I don't have instructions on this one. It's just a simple puffy braid. I know this isn't the first blog to post it either! I'm going to try to post a hair do every day! Some times it will just be a quick pic I snapped at the school or store, sometimes it will be something I did!

This is part of the ongoing 2010 blogger challenge to post at least 1 picture every day! (which I think I did 2 days in a row on my family blog before I forgot!) It's really been harder than I thought to remember to take a pic a day!

Anyway, here it is. My Do of the Day!She's getting so big! She's not the 2 month old baby she was when I did my first post! If only these pics showed off her funny personality and how much fun she really is!

Baby Climbers

Here's a very simple, under 5 minute do to spice up those old baby piggies! It actually started as a little headband but I didn't like how it stuck out so I just connected the bottom ponies to the top ones and viola! Baby Climbers!

Fancy Half Up (long Hair)

Here's the longer version of my Fancy Half Up .

Start the same as the shorter version, take the top section and make it into a twist. Secure with a bobby pin then add a barrette for extra hold and to give it the extra bling!
(I know it's too low in this pic but I fixed it! That pic just didn't torn out. You want it at the bottom of the twist)

Take the front sections and flat iron to smooth away any bumps. Twist while pulling back to prevent bumps in the twist.

Pull the first front section UNDER the barrette and pin down on the opposite side.

The second section sounds tricky but it's not. You're going to twist it the same as the first but instead of going under you want to go OVER, then pull it under the first twist. The pics a bit fuzzy but you can see that I am using my fingers to pull it under the first twist section. Pin it in place.
Make sure that the twists don't cover up your barrette. Use a little spray to keep it in place.
Sorry, no front view of this one. I couldn't get a front pic of myself that I liked. It's about the same as the Short Version.

Fancy Half Up (short hair version)

Start by making a small pony on top.
Twist it in the back and lift to give it extra body.

Notice I have 2 small bobby pins holing it up.
Take the side sections, twist them and connect them to the back with a bobby pin.
Use a hair bow or barrette to hold it all in place.

Climbing Braided Headband and a Pony

Start by sectioning off the front portion of hair. You can use a hair band or a clip to keep it out of the way.
Notice the hair on the side is down.
Again, section the front off into 2 sections. I used a side part, sectioning off each side of the part separately.
Braid the sides starting from the bottom going up. It's easiest to have her tilt her head to make the climber braid easier.
Now we're going to take each braid and cross them.
Notice here we have green on top and pink on the bottom.
Cross again (pink on top and green on the bottom now)
Continue to twist till all the braid reaches the pony tail. I did 3 twists.
Connect the braids to the pony tail.
Finish it off with a messy bun.
