Tips to Keep Hair Bows In

Recently I posted tips at my facebook page. After posting the tips I went to
Picnik and put together a better tutorial. These tips will work on the finest, smallest
amount of hair.
My oldest daughter was born with a full head of hair. My youngest was born with a full
head of hair as well, but it has been growing very slow.

This is the first post where I have made a collage. If your not able to read it
let me know. (It may be easier to read on my facebook page.)

Needing A Little Self Improvement!

Since the birth of my second daughter I kind of thew caution to the wind. What do I mean? Dont judge me please, but taking a shower was an effort. Im not much of a morning person, but my darling daughter is. She would be up bright eyed and bushy tailed at 6:30. My oldest
would get up at 8:30 - which is more like it for me. So when I say taking a shower is a
task I truely mean it.

In addition to that I have had fails on hairdressers within the past couple of years. At one point
I switched in hopes it would be better. Prior to my switch I was letting the
dreadful cut grow out in hopes that it would be repairable.
Much to my dismay that was not the case. I had 3! Yes 3 different cuts on one head.
In the evening we would be settling down and it was then that I would begin to
complain about it. Soon I just never returned to the "new" beautician.

With no one to cut my hair I resorted to cutting my own bangs - *gasp!*
I know! I know! If I had a hair dresser to make made I wouldn't do it,
but in this case there isn't one to make made.
(Ill try to do a tutorial on cutting bangs the next time I trim them)
Oh and I dont want to forget to mention that when I trim them Im stressed
Good combination right?

I decided I need a little umpf in my routine or lack thereof.
Makeup occasionally and hair done.
Last week I was on a mission to get the messy bun accomplished.
This took me all day to get it to where I wanted it. After having my second
daughter I had lost chunks of hair - literally.
When I pull my hair back I notice chunks of new growth. So putting my hair up can
be a chore. Its thin and sparse for now.
Below is what I accomplished.

I wanted to find a way to wear headbands that are super cute. The headband I have on
can be found here at Girls N Curls. These are satin lined
headbands, but you can also get the flowers on elastic.

Thanks for taking a peek. Ill be working on adding more tutorials.
