My daughter and I have come a long ways in learning how to help each other out as I get her hair done. And we certainly have many years left to go.
I grew up having my hair done and know how the experience can be if you are not careful with the hair and be patient and calming during the process, so I try to ensure she is comfortable and we take short little breaks to help when the tears and irritation begins.
To be honest, sometimes time is short and I just have to push through and I might lose my temper (hate that part) or just try my best to get her to breathe and calm down.
I found this beautiful crown braid and wanted to try it with her hair. We watched the video together and she decided she'd love to have it done.
It was the night before her birthday. I told her she'd have the best hair do in school for her birthday :)
We started with this:
She did have the best hairstyle and everyone commented and loved it. She felt special even more on her birthday.
She beamed when I picked her up from school and told me the tales :)
I will do it again a few times and see the outcome with different resources.
Do you visit the salon for a new do on your birthday?
Do you have good memories of your parents doing your hair as a child?
By the way, you can see the tutorial here from the Untrained Hair Mom and the video below:
