here is part two of hair trends for kids 2013.
you can find our holiday/2013 sleek hair styles here.
this is a more carefree, relaxed look. a nice alternative to the messy bun, this look although loose has interesting knots to elevate the look.
so i went back to my friend britney to help me out.
as i have said, i am hair styling challenged. this hairstyle i have done twice. easy peasy.
britney and i decided a knot that can be done on short or long hair would be best.
this is her darling L. She is two. She has a short, shoulder length bob.
this first picture is not great, and does not do this little doll justice, but you get the idea.
okay, so here it is, in the words of britney:
1. First part hair into 4 sections. Starting from top of your head dow to each ear. This makes the two front sections.
2. Split the back of the hair into two parts. This does not need to be precise. Now, I like to put a little product on my hands. Just a little bit to help your hands stick to their hair and give you more control. Nothing wet or stick, just a little tacky.
3 & 4. Then you want to tie the back two pieces into a knot. Nice and low.
5. Continue to tie knots until you run out of hair. Do this as tight as you can. It will loosen up on it’s own.6, 7 & 8. Then finish with a rubber band and tuck end under and secure with a bobby pin.
10. It is ok if it is loose. That is kind of the look. It doesn’t need to be perfect. Just try and hide all your bobby pins. You can pin up more of the front peices if you like.
11. I like using shorter bobby pins for little ones. I cannot find a link for them but you can get them at Sally’s Beauty Supply. One brand is Strictly Professional. If you prefer the regular size ones these are the best. They stay closed really well and are great bang for your buck.
now here it is on longer hair. ruby is four. her hair is long and pretty thick for her age.
