Enter To Win

I just wanted to tell you all about a giveaway that is happening right now. I love free stuff and I know you do too. Go to to enter to win and tell her that Kellie sent you.


Is all I can really say. I being a baby in the blogging world have come to realize that there are a million people who have some serious talent. I am into hair I guess you could say and like every other person out there I like people who are like me. Not to say I don't like people who aren't like me but, well you know that I know that we're all on the same page. I'm just saying here are some people who really dig hair - just like me. You should check them out. It's only been a few weeks of school and I'm already duplicating hair styles. Which isn't bad. My hair is practically the same everyday - not done. But with all the ideas and variety it's fun to change it up. Here is where you should go first. It's call she does hair and she really does. She also has a bunch of links to other hair doing mummies. I will add them all to my side bar for future reference.

School Is In Session

So I've been in hair style mode. Here is a style that is fairly easy (involves no curling) and seems to stay well for the entire day. I simply parted the hair and sectioned it off with the soft tiny elastics which I get at Family Dollar. A zillion for $1.00. I finished it by doing 2 messy buns and then added two hydrangea topped flower clips which you can get here.

Not for the faint of heart

This idea seemed a lot more simple in my imagination than it was to pull off. It turned out pretty funky though.
Simply part the hair in a 2, 3, 2 system.
Comb it smooth and tie off the first 2 sections with tiny elastics (I like to buy these at family dollar because they are super cheap)
The trick to making this hairstyle a little more unique is tying the hair in a knot. Once it's in the elastic just tie it around itself and take it back to the next level.
The hardest part was getting the knots to stay in while I worked on the next section. Once they are connected to the next part they stayed great.
For the final 2 knots I pinned them down with a bobby pin.
Let me know if you try this one out, what you thought, and if more detailed instructions would help.

Our Contest Winners

Thanks everyone for your submissions. We hope you enjoy the ideas we've selected to share!

Krysta's Directions:
Ask your little darling to hang their head over upside down. This can be done by having them go hands and knees, or simply bend over. The fun part for us is seeing what new way she comes up with each time to get her head in the right place! Start a regular french braid from the neck up. (Warning!!! May be challenging if you are a beginning braider! Can really try the patience of both child and hairdresser if this is so!) End the braid at the crown of the head. Have the child flip the head over and pull the remaining hair into the ponytail. Can be finished off by simply curling the ends of the ponytail under, or curling individual pieces, as shown. Those with longer hair can pin up the curled pieces into more of a messy bun. This is fun for casual day at town or dressed up for that special occasion. Of course, Chloe Reese Hair Accessories also help to make the occasion!! :0)

Tiffany's Directions:
Brush hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. twist
ponytail and tie into a knot around elastic. Use bobby pins to secure
and curl or finger comb the hair coming out of the center. These
pictures are of one ponytail but you can do piggy tails too.

Kara's Directions:
First separate the hair into 5 different elastics in the front
Then on the next row do the same thing but include half of one of the first rows pony tails in each new pony tail
With the last row just take half of each of the second row to make a new pony tail. Then make on big 4th pony tail with all of the 3rd row. Or with all the hair that's left if you want
