Funky Knots

Ok, corny name I know but sometimes I run out of my name creativity lol. The pictures are horrible, they were taken in the morning before school (as I was shoving her out the door on the verge of being late) and taken with my phone so no flash and low light, but I at least thought to get a few pics of it before it was all messed up.

Anyways, enough about my lovely school mornings with a kid who REALLY has ADHD lol. Now lets get to stylin'!

This style is done on wet hair with a good amount of gel applied. First separate a section of hair from ear to ear along the top, now part that to the side (I part on the right so the short side is on the right). Take the shorter side and make puffy braids or elastic braids as I call them, by sectioning a row and securing it with an elast and then getting another sectioned row and adding the hair from the first to that one and continue down do this for the whole right side. Now, start with the hair on the longer side (left) at the top and secure with an elastic then tie onto itself once then add to the next section and secure with an elastic. Now add another section to it and then tie once and secure with an elastic. Now do this tie and skip as far down as you can go till you get to just below the ear and secure with an elastic.

Now take both sides and add to the remaining hair in back and secure into a ponytail. Separate into two sections and tie over and over just leaving a little at the end and secure with an elastic, pull the knotted ponytail up and attach with bobby pins to the hair making X's with the pins to hold in place. Take the remaining hair and curl under a little. I made it so one side was higher then the other since this is how the knot was making go anyways and it looked cute. Spray and your good to go!

Enjoy and if there are hairstyles I do that I haven't done a pic step by step with and you would like one let me know and I will work on it now that school is out. Remember, if you let me know what you think and what you like I can come up with more styles for ya :) so comment lots :) :)!!!

Knotted Back Pigtails

This is a simple style to do. We started out by making the little poof in the front then we split the hair into 2 sections for pigtails. Apply gel all through hair and comb through some more. Then start sectioning of a small amount of hair starting from the top just below the poof for the first knot. Secure this with an elastic and then tie once. Now section another piece and add the hair from the first knot and secure with an elastic and tie. Make another section and secure with an elastic and tie then add to the last section of hair and secure with a more heavy duty elastic.

Now just do the same with the other side, spray and your done. This style is easiest to do on wet hair. The knots turn out much smoother.

Swirled And To The Side

This is a pretty hairstyle that can be dressy or casual. These pictures didn't turn out the greatest and don't do it justice but it's what I got. I will do a step by step for this and the one for Ren Fest next week when school is out. Basically what I did was separate a section of hair along the front and then braided it low.Then I took the top section of hair and made a little poof and secured it into a ponytail. Then I made 2 other ponytails and on the bottom pony, I added the braided sides. Then I took the top pony and made a loose swirled bun, securing it with bobby pins and leaving this little extra bit of hair going to the left then I made the same bun for the second pony but I twisted it in the opposite direction and left the extra hair at the end going to the right. I left the bottom pony down and curled it and the ends that were from the buns, although you can't tell real good cause at this point her hair had lost its curl from being in the heat and it got a little fuzzy. To make the buns a little bigger I lightly back brushed the hair before swirling it into the bun. Now all you have to do is spray with a good holding hairspray and your done!
I am looking for a really good holding hairspray, what hairspray do you use?

This one was after she got her face painted :)

Cornrowed Mini Faux Hawk Poof

Cornrowed Mini Faux Hawk Poof

For this what I did was first separate a patch of hair down the middle and pinned it aside. Now take the hair on the side and cornrow from the front going back. My daughters hair is kinda fine so I only made three sections going back on each side. Now do the other side and make a pony tail out of the braids. You want the ponytail to be about where the poof ends in the picture, it will be covered up by the remaining hair. Now, take the hair from the middle and use a rounded brush and blow dryer, blow dry the hair in small sections from back to front. When you blow dry, pull the hair so it is over extended, spray it and use the round brush to add the volume. After you have finished, take the front section (bangs) and make a small poof out of it. Now, back brush the rest of the sections a little and smooth over then make another, larger poof that would end right at the top of the ponytail and secure with about 4-6 bobby pins in an x pattern. Now smooth hair and blend with the ponytail. You can curl remaining hair or straighten. Spray and your done! :)

Also, you might notice her shirl in the back is altered. I cut the strips across and then did a french fishbone braid and I think it turned out sooo cute! I see styles in all kinds of weird places lol!

This is really annoying!

Now I know I have been a bad blogger and haven't been on and posting like I should but just because I was MIA for a bit people thing they can come on here and post comments advertising for something which to make matters worse in most cases has been perverted stuff!! On a blog about little girls hair!!! I mean could you possibly stoop any lower then that? Trying to make money is one thing but to what expense...this goes way too far.

I have gone through and deleted the comments and I am going to change my settings for comments. I will be posting more often as well.

Has anyone else had any problems like these with there blogs?
