If you read last week’s post, you will have seen that I’m trying to up my hair game a little as I’ve seen how pretty Carly’s hair can look when a bit more effort has been made than a simple ponytail.
So this week I’ve been having a go and have two styles that are relatively easy to recreate in a quick time, because with three minions to control of a morning, I don’t have time to be sat around for ages doing hair.
The Plaited Up-Do
For this one I simply separate a small amount of hair either side of Carly’s face, pull up the remaining hair into a ponytail on the top of her head, make a plait either side, tie the end of the plaits with a thin band, and then tie the ends of the plaits with the main pony into a loose bun with a fourth hair tie.
Et voila, something pretty but simple and suitable for nursery.
The Pretty Ballet Bun
Tie hair up on the top of the head with the hair bun and then cover it over with the rest of the hair all around. Use a hair tie to hold the hair in place.
I then used a big elasticated flower bracelet of mine to go around the base of the bun to tidy it up and this made the style even more feminine and dressed up.
I finished it off by pulling her unruly fringe to one side. This style is more suited to a meal or other special occasion.
Do you have any other simple child friendly hairstyles I can try?
