It is always a battle to get Jason's hair cut so one thing I was looking forward to with Elizabeth was not having to battle to cut her hair. I didn't realize there would be a trade off and I would have to fight to keep her hair out of her eyes. I have been trying out some new styles to keep her hair back and we have had some successes and some failures. Let's start by taking a look at what happens when I don't do anything with her hair:
Then I went with a french braid in part of the hair. I love this one, but it is a bit of a challenge and if Elizabeth is in a mood I don't even attempt it.
The next day we tried a hair knot and although it looked okay, it definatly didn't stay in so later that day we tried a different style.
We tried a line of flip unders and these stayed really well, but I will have to get one of those topsy tail tools to make the process faster. Speed is always key when working with one this little.
A simpler style that I am starting to really like is just twists back to pigtails or buns. It is pretty easy, but still looks cute and keeps her hair out of her face.
I have a few more styles that I am thinking of trying, but this is what we have done so far. Most of these ideas have come from Simply Sadie Jane and Princess Hairstyles, so check them out for some more ideas..
