Harper has an unruly head of hair and getting a brush through it is a dramatic, traumatic experience for the both of us. It’s karma because I put my mom through hell every day when it came to sit and get the snarls out. Unlike me, who would rather have just let my mane grow in the unruly, wild tangles, Harper actually likes to have her hair played with. She loves braids and pigtails and will let you play with her hair all day long, as long as you don’t have to comb though the knots to get to that point. Right now she’s in school two days a week and I do her hair on those days and then put it up for dance. The thought of having to fight with her hair every day of the week is mildly terrifying. I can’t be the only mom who isn’t looking forward to the daily hair struggle so I thought I would share the easy, quick hair styles that we’ve tried or are on our to try list. Harper has long straight hair, so the ones that we’ve tried work for her hair type. The others linked to are ones my mom friends have tried or what to try on their kids who have varying hair types. I’d love to add some more hairstyles that work for all hair lengths and textures. I’ve you have one you love, please comment with a link to the tutorial and I will edit the post to add it.
