I have another cute hairstyle tutorial for everyone.  First part the hair down the middle from the forehead to the nape of the neck. French braid three braids on each side of the head.

place an elastic around the ends of all three braids, creating one ponytail.  Braid the ponytail and loop the end up into the top elastic.
Curl the ends and spray with hairspray. Finish with some adorable bows.

hairstyle #16

I am So sorry about the pictures for this style. When I get into my little hairstyle world, I forget that I am supposed to be taking pictures as I am going.  Fortunately this hairstyle is fairly self explanatory. First start with a part, either on the side or down the center. then french braid on each side from the front to the back of the head.

Create three pony tails at the back of the head. Make sure they are close together so your messy buns will be seamless.

Then make messy buns from each ponytail. For messy bun instructions go here.

You can use bobby pins in places there may be holes.

Finish with hairspray. Embellish how ever you wish.
Poor kid, she will probably hate me when she is older for posting such an unflattering picture. :)

hairstyle # 15 Sweet little rolls with a little fingernail polish thrown in.

So this morning we painted our fingernails. I didn't do a very good job screwing the top of the fingernail polish bottle back on, and my youngest painted her hair while I was doing her sisters hair. Thank goodness for nail-polish remover! It came right out, but it did make me chuckle a little.  Most of the time I can laugh about the things children get into, occasionally it can be too much for me though. :) I am sure, that most mothers can say the same.

After taking care of the polish in her hair, I quickly rolled three little rolls, off a side part, and secured them with bobby pins.
I flipped her hair up with a large barreled curling iron, and VOILA a darling little hairdo, in less than 5 minutes. Quick and easy, that's how she likes them.

Would you just look at those eyes! She is such a cutie. ( I am a little biased though)
