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