I have a 5 year old daughter wedged in between three boys. She is a total girly girl and wants me to do her hair all the time but aside from ponytails or simple braids, I have no clue how to do any cute hairstyles on her - I'm all thumbs. She has hair past her shoulders that is still pretty fine in texture. I'd love to learn how to do some girly styles on her but I can't seem to find any how-to sites or directions/pictures for doing little girl hair styles....you know, little knots or lots of butterfly clips or unique ponytails...something a little flashier that what I'm pulling off!
So...for all you experts. Can any of you teach me how to do girls' hair? Or direct me to a site that would teach me?
When I was little my mom would always braid my hair, or pull the top up and put a big bow in it...
My favorite was when she put it in a low pony tail, then divided the hair above the rubber band in half, and pulled the hair below the rubber band through the hole. It made a fancy look, but it's super quick and easy. I forget the name of the style though.
I loved french braids too. And pigtails. And lots of bows!
I know you have four kids, so you might not have a lot of time for this, but if you want to give it a try you might. At Michaels ( or any craft store, I'm sure) you can get a kit for really cheap on how to make bows. Then you can let your daughter pick out ribbons she likes (really cheap) and she can help you make bows (it is actually pretty easy and fun! And it would be a great time for you to bond with her.) You can hot glue the different bows onto alligator clips (also available at Micahels/craft stores for super cheap) and you can put them in her hair with any hair style. They will spice up any pony tail! And alligator clips are great for really fine hair (my daughter is one and has very fine hair still and these stay in her hair great!)
Plus, alligator clips are really easy to use so she can put them in herself.

My daughter loves having her hairstyled as well and I usually just go with whatever, she's always had a lot of hair so I've learned some stuff over the years lol. I'd look on some of your favorite book sites and see if they have any books that might help. I just tried looking but all I found was things for women not young girls. I wish I could be of more help. I'll do some more looking and see if I come across anything
