When I first found out I was having a girl, my thoughts immediately went to her hair. Ever since I was young, I've loved to play with people's hair. I would pounce on any head of hair I could find to braid and bedazzle it, crimp and curl, and otherwise experiment with the lovely locks of anyone who would let me. Now, here I would have a little subject of my very own.
Only now that my almost-3-year-old has a full head of very long hair, it's become much more of a pesky problem than a perk. The biggest dilemma -- finding a style we both like (read: not just a big tangled mess that covers her face). It took the good part of a year to get her to let me put pigtails in her hair. Turns out she's doesn't like pigs, but once I called them "sheep tails," she magically acquiesced.
So as the holidays approach with a million photo ops and events to attend with her and hair, I've been collecting some ideas.
