fishtail. fishbone. herringbone. braid.

Last week, thanks to Design Mom Gabrielle, Sweetpea and I sat on the couch for half an hour watching video hair tutorials one after another on Hairdresser on Fire. We were absolutely enthralled with all the styles we could try. We both currently have long curly hair that gets slightly impossible to deal with in the summer. I'm always looking for new ways to get my hair up and out of the way, beyond the basic ponytail.

Yesterday, Sweetpea became enamored with the fishtail braid tutorial and asked me to try it. I had actually done it on her before, oh, four or five months ago, but she didn't remember. No worries, it's an easy one, so I did it again for her. As I was braiding she said, “But Mom? Will you put two ponytail holders at the end, one on each side, so it actually looks like a fish tail?” That girl. So creative. She slays me.

Go check out the HDOF tutorials. They're awesome. I love the messy side bun.

Do you have long curly hair? What do you do with it in the summer?

I have the opposite of long curly hair. It lives in a boring old ponytail all summer because I can't stand the heat with hair on my face or neck. So stylish, I know. Have you checked out Reagan's other blog? (www.reagansblob.com) I had no idea about this hairdresser one. I'll have to do some browsing so I won't have such boring hair.

I just found it last night and couldn't stop reading. The whole family is an inspiration.

I LOVE the HDOF tutes! I have watched several since I saw them on Design mom last week. She makes it look so effortless. And then there is me sweating in my bathroom trying to copy her. :)
