Cindy Lou Who and Crayola Markers

I don't know about everyone else, but every year, the week before Christmas is spirit week at my kids' school. Today is Crazy Hair or Crazy Hat Day. This is also the first year that Makenzie has fallen in love with Cindy-Lou Who from the Grinch. So of course for crazy hair day she asked for Cindy-Lou hair. This was actually relatively easy to accomplish. We parted out a circle-ish section of hair on top of her had and stuck a plastic cup on her head. We then pulled the hair from the circle up and around the cup forming the cone shape. We added a bow on top and curled her hair hanging down. We then took the remaining hair and did two braids pulling them up and bobbing pinning them into place. We then curled the ends of the braids down. It took about 20 mins total because I was trying to find a cup that we couldn't see through her thin hair.

For Aidan, we used a green crayola marker and colored the front of his hair, then gelled it up into place. Super easy and took less than 5 minutes.

Sometimes the best hair...

I'm a hair mom. I LOVE having Kenz's hair done and looking all pretty every day. She enjoys picking out styles to wear and helping me come up with new ideas. HOWEVER... doing hair is one of those things that to be honest, doesn't always get done the way I would like it to. However, throughout the last few years I have learned a few things. The most important thing I've learned is not to panic. In the early years of hair-doing, if a style fell out, or a hat messed up her hair I would worry. Especially if it was an event of some sort where pictures would be taken. It took me a good couple years to loosen up and relax, we've learned that not every hair has to be in place, and in fact sometimes the best hairstyles for pictures are loose and natural. For example, recently my husband and I took the kids to a local park to walk around and shoot some random pictures. In the car on the way Kenzie's hair fell out and she stuck her hat on her head and we just went with it. When I got home and I loaded the pics onto the computer I was actually quite happy with the way her hair looked natural and comfortable. Here are some pics for examples:

Belle Hairstyle

I know it has been a long time since we've posted any hairstyles, but we have a few photographed and ready to be posted again, so we thought we would add some new ones.
The first style that I'm going to post is not one that I thought of, actually The Story of a Princess and her Hair did an amazing tutorial Right Here. The only thing that we did different, is for the bump we just bobby pinned it in place and put a headband under the twists instead of the bracelet around the bump.
Here's our version:
