The day I put that style in, V's best buddy, and also a neighbor and classmate, came over for the afternoon. Miss A asked if I would put some braids in her hair too. I always get excited to get my hands on a new head of hair! I have been doing my own girls hair for so long that it gets a bit mundane sometimes, but getting my little fingers on new hair - well that is just fun!
I thought the girls would enjoy it if I made Miss A's hair match V's. As much as I could anyway, I certainly wasn't going to get any curly puffs out of Miss A's stick straight hair! Whew! My white girl hair skills are certainly lacking. I am sure with more practice I would improve. I do have Little E's straight hair, but you know she gives me a whole different set of challenges! Miss A has VERY thick but VERY slippery fine hair. It's so pretty! Here are the results of my attempt:
|Isn't she a pretty girl!|
|I only did 2 braids per side, instead of 4. The girls wanted to play too, so I had to work fast!|
|Could be straighter - huh?|
All in all, I think it came out pretty well. Miss A was pleased. She even borrowed one of V's sleep caps because she didn't want it to get messed up over night! I happened to do lunch in their class room the next day and I was glad to see that it actually had made it over night! Her hair was dry when I styled it (I only spritzed it with water a bit while I was working) and I just lightly sprayed it with hair spray when I was done. Maybe her mom did some fixing in the morning before school?
I did snap a quick pic of the girls together. So quick it's blurry! But still cute.
Come back tomorrow and I will show you how I updated V's style.
