Living in a house with homeschoolers means research...if we don't know something, we look it up. Throw a wedding at us...you guessed it, we researched. We've attended weddings, stood up in them but never had a child get married.
Then the subject of hair comes up. What do we do? Our girls all have long hair and they are satisfied putting it up in a ponytail. We've tried flat irons, hot rollers, curling irons...you name it, we've tried it. One thing we learned real fast, each of the girls hair responds differently. After googling wedding hair do's and watching rosebud on youtube we think we have it figured out.
To the right is Hannah. She will be on of the bridesmaids. Her hair is very straight and stubborn. We tried more stuff on her hair and within 30 minutes it was gone. The curls would fall out that fast. The kids googled and found directions on how to do this style. It stayed all day and even through chores!!! SCORE!!! We were very excited.
Now you are probably wondering how these up-dos were done. The girls used the flat iron to put curls all over the whole head. Next, they gently put it into a ponytail. Then they used bobby pins to place the curls where they wanted. The final step was to use hair spray.
