As I’ve been uploading a ton of July pictures from my SD card to my computer I realized I had both of these on there as well. I figured I might as well share them now or they’d be lost in my archives for good!
If you’ve been around from Babes in Hairland’s infancy, you’ll remember when I did The 7 Days of Christmas – Hairdo’s and Giveaways. That’s when I first introduced “Hair Fancy’s” as I know them. Check out how little Goose looked & how short her hair was when we first tried these out back in 2008 HERE! Wow how time flies!!! I know there are other things similar out there, but these are simply called “Hair Fancy’s.” Goose thought it’d be fun for one of the rodeo’s we went to, to have the red & white stripes in her hair across the front, so this was the look we went with:
Then to add our red & white bows in back, Goose suggested we slide the clip of a smaller red bow through the top loop of the big white bow – both came from All Things Ribbon. These basic bows are some of our fav’s and get used on a regular basis at our house!
And for Bee we did a simple pull through on top and pulled the rest through into a messy bun for long hair. Then we put “fireworks” in her bun using the technique Jenn @ Girly Do’s posted forever ago HERE. Her post had disappeared off her blog & she was kind enough to dig through all her pictures and repost it recently! This is a great one if you’re short on time or “accessories” for any festive occasion!
Once I made our bun – I put the ribbon on our hairpins and stuck them randomly in her bun. I told her they were “fireworks” and she was all kinds of excited! Nothing but silliness for all the pictures because of it …
See? Pure giddiness & excitement?! She wouldn’t hold still or be serious for a single picture! That’s when I know I’ve done my job well! 🙂
