  1. My little girl is only 7 months old, so we don't do very much to her hair as far as styles go. Right now our favorite is cloth pony tail holders. We usually do two pig tail puffs. I can't wait to start collecting more and doing more to her hair!!

  2. My favorite accessory for my daughter are the hair snaps that look the same on both sides. We have enough colors to match just about every outfit, and they look so clean and neat in her hair, perfect for church or a play date at the park.

  14. My favorite hair accessory would have to be snaps in general as they are so useful for many different styles, my daugther's favorite snaps are some dragonflies we found at a little small town drugstore. Had to have my mom go back and buy them out so I'd have enough for braids and replacements of lost snaps. :)

  117. My favorite hair accessory my daughter has is her headbands. Mostly because she loves them and likes different types of ones, sometimes with a bow, or giant flower clip on them and sometimes plain. Also that she feels confident enough to rock her fro with the headband! No matter what style I do, she will always go back to that style and ask for it..lol
