Braid All The Hairs.

Between being a mommy to two little crazies, running my Norwex business and keeping up with custom orders for my wood sign business, I'm busy! But I think I can say I am continually learning new things... daily, to be honest. Never a dull moment with two kiddos under 4!

You may remember a post I did about toddler hairstyles I'd tried on my {then} almost 2 year old. Oh, you don't remember? Maybe that's because it was way back in January of 2016. That's expecting a little much from you. Well, if you haven't seen them go check out those fun and quick styles now. Then, come back here and check out how I've progressed since then.

Obviously, my daughter's hair has grown very much since we started the experimental hairstyles. These days styling her hair is mostly out of necessity and only a little bit my need to challenge myself. If I let her wear her hair hanging down, I'd be tugging tangles til midnight. And if you know toddlers, and you know gal hair, you know tangles = ALL THE PAIN (and tears, gah, the tears).

So here is my latest attempt to keep said tangles far away from our home. It's a cornrow sort of thing, but to her it's "so many braids."



This one took a bit more time than the simpler styles I usually try on her, but I was feeling ambitious. It helps that the older she gets the more patience she has.

I recommend three key factors when attempting such styles:

1) Snacks (Breakfast is hair styling time around here, but food is key. Kids love food.)
2) Cartoons (aka distractions, something to focus on to pass the time)
3) Speed! (Keep practicing and you'll be quicker each time. But know your limits - and your child's.)

GOOD LUCK!

What are some styles you've tried on your little ones? What should I try on her next?

Happy braiding!
