Every Thursday night Heather Beth asks me to do her hair before the end of the fun. It's usually just a simple side braid headband. However, she found this blog on pinterest: http://www.cutegirlshairstyles.com/5-minutes/the-knotted-headband-back-to-school-hairstyles/ and thought I should give it a try. It didn't look very easy, but after watching the video I felt slightly more confident in trying it out. I have to say though, Mindy from Cute Girls Hairstyles is AMAZING! She makes everything look super easy to do. I wish my mom had been able to do so many awesome hairstyles on my when I was growing up. I think the fanciest thing I ever got was a side pony.
Anyways, this hairstyle was a little bit more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Hair isn't really meant to be tied like this so we had to use quite a bit of gel and we didn't have an alligator clip so I used June and Heather Beth's hands to help me hold everything down.
Here's some pics of the process:
As you can see things got a little confusing for a minute. There was a lot of hair and pieces all over the place. I had to start over only once before I got the hang of it and things started to take shape.
And of course it wouldn't be us without some silly pictures also:
It didn't take too long to finish once I got the hang of it. Here's the final product:
We usually do this right before I leave and Heather Beth sleeps with it in to wear it the next day. She said it stayed pretty well through the night.We'll see what crazy hairstyles she finds for me to try next time.
See you next time :)
