To show you how much I appreciate your loyalty and cyber-friendship, I am doing my first give-away.
Here is a preview. In addition to these bows, I will also have two other sets and some flowers as well. I will post pictures as I complete them. Don't look too close, I'm not a professional, I am just having fun making them.
The catch, you need to leave a comment on this blog post. I will randomly pull your comment number and this contest will end on Friday, May 2 at 3:30pm Mountain Standard Time.

Which is exactly how we spend every Saturday morning.
And spring is in full, windy force here.
Hence the scarfs.
Plus, I think they are cute.
I just pulled her hair into two flippy ponytails low on her head.

French Braid the hair to the crown.
Secure with an elastic.
Curl all of the ends with a flat-iron or a curling iron.
Spray the hair.

She likes her hair crazy for soccer. That is my fault. I told her soccer players have crazy hair. I don't think I was lying.
Oh, and she looks thrilled in this picture.

Not much has changed. Londynn has super thick hair that makes me drool. Here is one of the super cute styles that Laurie does to her hair.
Thanks Laurie for your submission! Keep them coming!
Part the hair first. Laurie parted it on the side and then once she got to the crown she took the part over to the middle.
French braid down the first side. When you get to the part of the braid where you no longer have any hair to braid, this is where you end the braid.
Use your elastic to pull the braid through. When you get to the last loop, only pull the hair 1/2 way through.
Do the same to the other side.
Then put a ribbon or bow on the ponytail For super thick hair like Londynn's, a clip bow would probably stay in if you found the right place for it. For my dd's thinner hair, I would tie a ribbon around the elastic.
Then take your flat-iron or your curling iron and spike out the ends. Spray the hair.

I don't know about the rest of you, but put a headband in my daughters hair and it is taken out within minutes, if not seconds. THIS is a superfun, and super cute alternative.
It is really easy. You part their hair and then section it off in the front. I pull the hair that I am not using into a temporary ponytail so that it doesn't get in the way. From here, it is just up to you to decide how to make your headband. My daughters have a lot of wispy baby hairs, so the upside down French braid is our favorite. It stays put the best. My friend, Hilary, leans towards a normal French braid or a French twist, as featured below.
Once you have decided what your preference is, you braid or twist all the way to the ends. I secure each of the ends with an elastic and then band the two under the hair.
Once you band the two parts together, you can either curl the hair, leave it straight, pull the rest up into a ponytail or a flippy ponytail. It is limited to only your imagination.

One of my daughter's friends had her hair like this the other day and so I asked her mom how she did it. It was so easy! I couldn't believe it.
You have to have it wet, at least on the top, and use mousse, gel, or whatever you normally use to help hold the do, then hairspray afterwards
Just divide into sections, then divide each section into two parts.
Literally it's just a knot that is wrapped three times intead of just once.
Pull the 'knot' tight and hairspray it.
