I have 3 lil girls. I should do more with their hair!

From the moment Aubrey got hair long enough to clip or put it a pony tail, I tried. But that girl is tender-headed(much like her mommy) and it has always been an ordeal to do her hair. And now that Ella's hair is nice and long, she is the same way. I've got tender headed kids! And I understand because I am still that way. My mom has even told me how she has memories of crying when her mom did her hair, so I guess this is genetic:) So, instead of crying and tears, I have always just kept the girls hair simple. Half up, simple braids, clips, pony-tails, headbands(my favorite-so easy and cute!), nothing fancy. Well, I have been inspired by a few hair blogs to step it up a notch. I still will not attempt anything too difficult(I'm a simple girl:), but I've decided to try and do a few new things with the kids hair. First, I decided to organize the hair thingies and rubberbands by color using an over the door shoe organizer (Thanks Hair Today for this awesome idea). I had the kids organize it themselves one day and I think they did a great job! They spent an hour digging through our mess of a drawer and actually had so much fun doing this. They couldn't wait to show Joey and I when they were done! This has already made my life easier, having everything organized by color.Then I put all of the bows and headbands in drawers. It just feel so much more organized in the girls bathroom now! I love it. Then one morning, I decided to try a new hairstyle on the older girls for school. I did one of those rubberband zig-zag things in their hair. I know most of you think this is a basic easy hairstyle, but I've never done it before! I really liked it! I'm still an amateur:) I have a goal to try new things with their hair this year. They both have gorgeous hair and I need to do better! And heres some news, Cali's hair is actually long enough for a clip to stay in now-yea! Now, if I can just get her to leave the clip in, that would be nice:)

I will have to remember that idea if I ever have any girls. Your girls do have beautiful hair.

I saw Aubrey's hair that day and was impressed. Everytime I try to do Addyson's hair it looks terrible and she is usually late for school. You will have to teach me your skills. Good job!

I love that organizing idea! I bet it does feel good to have all their hair accessories organized. They can get so tangled and hard to find just all stuffed in one drawer. Good luck with the new dos!

Digging through the mystery bathroom drawers can be tedious. The big-balled ponytailers were always my favorite. ;o)

The hair blogs out there have inspired me too! It is so much fun. Phoebe has a soft head too, but she has finally learned to just put up with me and I try to be gentle. Life as a girl is all about a what we do for beauty.
