Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

Hello my neglected on-line friends!  Yes, the summer madness goes on!  But I am here today with a cute post about my daughter B.  I also want to warn you to watch closely, because in spite of my bloggy neglect, we have TWO giveaways coming at you soon!

So here is the story - During the last week of school B's grade was hosting a Marketplace for two of the younger grades.  They were given free reign to choose whether they wanted to sell a good or a service.  Many kids chose to sell trinkets and food items, but not my B.  She was dead set on having a Hair Styling Booth!  I just find this adorable.  And as my title suggests, I find it very flattering that my daughter would want to do something that she sees me spend SO MANY HOURS doing!  And this isn't the first time in the last few months that she has shown an interest in hair styling.  I noticed on a school paper awhile back that she stated she wanted to be a hair stylist when she grows up!  Isn't that cute!

We used V's buddy Miss A (a frequent after school guest who has made an appearance here before.) as a hair model.  B chose 4 different hair styles and took pictures of them to put on a poster.  I picked up a few packs of cheap combs and hair things at the dollar store, and anyone who got their hair done was able to keep the comb!

These are the hairstyles she was offering:

This one B came up with on her own.  I think it is cute!  It is a pigtail style if you couldn't tell.  

This was a suggestion from me, also pigtails.

This was B's idea and her most popular seller.

Another idea from me.  This one is a twist into a ponytail.

Unfortunately for B, her booth wasn't the most frequently visited.  It is pretty hard to compete with Root Beer Floats when you are selling to 6-9 year olds!  As a matter of fact, B's own sister didn't even visit her booth, but she did buy 2 root beer floats!  Oh that girl!  Overall, B had a good time with this experience and I think she could definitely have a future in hair!

Happy Independence Day!!!!!!



  1. I absolutely love it! Awesome, B! So creative and it takes real talent and motivation to do hair instead of selling something. Bravo!

  2. awwwwwwwww that was cute!!!!!!!!!! Maybe one day she'll be one of the top future natural hair stylist : )

  3. This is so cute! I love it when my daughter takes an interest in something I like- especially hair :) Sometimes she says "When I grow up and have kids, I'm doing their hair just like you do mine!" Very creative idea.
