If you’re looking for easy, simple styling techniques to create beautiful hair for flower girls, this article reveals some amazing little known techniques to help you design any style you choose.
Nothing is cuter than a little girl all dressed up in her fancy shoes, pretty special occasion dress, and her hair styled like a princess! But, if you’re like me, when it comes to her hair, things get much harder. Most little girls are wiggly and just don’t have the ability to sit still for very long which makes things even worse.
Hot curling irons, rollers, and hair dryers not only damage the hair, but they are very difficult to use on children. Taking her to the salon is expensive, and the style will only last for the day. Chemicals in the hair products are harmful both for the hair and breathing.
Let’s say you want to style her long straight hair in a soft, curly updo. Your options are the curling iron and some hair product, having her sit under a dryer in rollers – an unpleasant activity for anyone, or using a hair dryer and a round brush.
Although all of these methods will produce curls, none of them will last for very long. After all of the hard work that goes into styling a little girls hair, it is sad to see those beautiful curls fall right before your eyes.
The good news is that there is a way to give her curls that will last for days without using any of the methods above! Yes, it does sound too good to be true, and I promise you it will work!
The “secret” was used many years ago long before hair dryers and curling irons had been invented. Even before curlers, ladies of all ages were able to get beautiful curls. For the cost of a pack of bobby pins, you can save a trip to the salon and so much frustration for both you and that lovely little girl.
Simply section off the hair into small sections using hair clips or bobby pins. The smaller the section, the tighter the curl will be. Comb through the strand of hair and gently twist it as you roll it into a spiral close to the head. Place two bobby pins to hold the circle of hair. Proceed with the next section of hair until it is all rolled.
It should be damp (not wet) when rolled so it will take a few hours to dry completely depending on the humidity and time of year. During the warm months, it can be rolled before bedtime. When she wakes up, it’s like magic!
When rolling her hair, allow her to watch a movie or engage in a pleasurable activity like coloring or playing with a favorite toy. This makes it a pleasant experience for both her and mom.
When the hair is dry, take the pins out and fluff the lovely, long lasting curls with your fingers. A soft updo with pretty flowers, a partial updo with a beautiful hair clip, or a floral halo wreath will all add to the amazingly easy and inexpensive hair style.
You will both love the results and the experience so much you will want to make it a regular part of your hair styling techniques as well as creating fashionable styles of hair for flower girls.
