Have you ever used chemicals or heat in your daughters hair? 
I’ve Tried blow drying it, but it makes it really dry and frizzy. 

How did you learn to care for your daughters hair? 
Watching A LOT of YouTube. 

Was there anything you really struggled with learning about caring  for or styling your daughters hair? Anything you’re looking forward to mastering? 
I still can’t figure out how to do the 4 strand braid… but I know someday I will get it!

Any tips for our readers? 
Just listen to your baby, if she says she’s tired of sitting then let her rest for a while and finish up later that day.

Show us some pics!

My Valentine

Just wanted to share a few of Keyanna's Valentines Day portraits we had done this weekend. I kept her hair simple and just did pigtails with a couple of cute bows. I curled her hair using our long and wide Curlformers.

Valentines Style: Braided Heart Ponytails

So.. it’s not quite Valentines day yet, but we did this style a little early to give you all another idea for the holiday. We actually started out planning to do a different heart style by Goldilocks*N*Me but the mood struck me to braid so we switched it up and came up with this style. Braided hearts are Keyanna’s favorite so she was definitely pleased when we finished, and has received tons of compliments by all her friends and teachers. 

For this style all I did was basically “draw” out the hearts using the end of a rat tail comb, tie them off using a rubber band, and then make an outline around each heart for the braids. I started at the top of the heart and braided down each side. After the 3 hearts were done I just did random small ponytails all over her head with the remaining hair and then braided them and added beads. 

You can check out last years Valentines day style that we did HERE
