Some-hair over the rainbow

I have done this hairdo on Caris a few times now. I like it because it's simple, it holds all of her shorter side-hairs in place longer than most hairdos, and because the rainbow of rubber band colors is just plain cute with almost anything she's wearing. She may or may not be sporting this 'do now, two days after I took these pictures. :-X

Start at the top corner and gather a diagonal section into a ponytail. Secure it with a small rubber band. I love Roy G. Biv, so I started with pink since there was no red.

With the next section, you'll move a little closer to the center. With the next one, right in the center. Then a little to the opposite side, and finally all the way down in the corner opposite where you started, so the final ponytail hangs coyly over your sweetie's shoulder in the front. Then use your flatiron to curl it all up, and give her bangs a once-over with it as well.
And just for fun, isn't Canaan cute cuddled up with Daddy at baseball last night? It was SO FLIPPIN' HOT but Alif looks cool as a cucumber in his old-man rocking chair. And just as a final sidenote, I would recommend that anyone whose toddler has fat Fred Flintstone feet go to Payless if you are in need of cheap shoes. I've now tried cheapos from Target and Wal-Mart and three pairs have left raw spots on his little footies. Ouch! These suckers from Payless were 14.99 and are comfy as can be.


  1. Ok, amd I crazy, or did you used to wear your hair similar to his in HS??

  2. Sally - lol! I think I didn't, though I know I did wear section ponies in jr. high!

  3. Alas, my kids hair isn't long enough... and I think their daddy might have something to say about his boys wearing pretty ponies in their hair:)

    I have had to shoe two kids so far with massive fat caveman feet. It's a pain in the backside, every shoe has to be infinitely adjustable. Other than crocs (or the cheap imitations) my favourites have been a pair of second hand weebok sandals. Every strap could change and the whole top of the sandal could come off and change for a different colour! so glad I got them second hand for $5 instead of new for $50+

    I am dreading the day I have to go school shoe shopping.
