Criss Cross Pigtails

My friend, Megan, has posted a number of cute hairdos on her blog. Her daughter, Kinley, is an adorable model and inspired me to try some new hairstyles on Solana. One day I opened up Megans blog (Justin and Megan) and pulled up all her hair entries. Solana and I looked through them and she decided to try the heart. It was really cute but also kind of hilarious. Kinley has sweet straight find blond hair and ended up with a precious heart on top of her head. Solana, on the other hand, has just about the thickest mane of hair I've ever had the pleasure of handling. She ended up with a huge fat heart tiara sticking out of her head. She liked it so we were all happy. Afterwards, she asked if I'd post it on the blog so that other little girls could see it and do their hair like hers. "Maybe." (That's what I say when I don't want to tell her "no.")

Since then we've been trying bunches of hairstyles and Solana keeps asking if I'll put them on the blog. I don't want to get into the business of a hair blog but I do find myself trying to remember which hairstyles we've tried and liked. I'm going to start posting them here. Maybe they'll inspire someone else to try a cute 'do. Mainly they'll keep me organized.

And if you're interested in trying any of these I'll point you to my inspiration. As it turns out there are a bunch of cute little girl hair blogs out there!

Chloe's hairstyle for today is called Criss Cross Pigtails. I really like this one because it keeps the hair out of her eyes and is pretty quick and easy. Click on the link for instructions.

OOoooh, cute one! That was why I started posting mine too. I wanted to remember our successes! So many things to keep mentally organized as a mom, hair styles was just one too many... Chloe is lucky to have a mommy that is so ahead of the game. Kinley had a blow-dryed bob without barrettes, bows, clips, or ties, for the first 5 years of her life. True story. That was the only thing I knew how to do.
