Recently we decided to make my daughter’s hairstyle a little easier to manage, and with her permission, we went from this:

Hairstyle, Joyful HomemakingLong hair all the way down her back when uncurled, to this:

Little Girls Hairstyle

It made it a lot easier to take care of, yet long enough to still fix in pretty long hairstyles.

The other day I wanted an extra cute hairstyle for her, and I found a picture in Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girls’ Hair that was darling.

Little Girls Hairstyle

It started with a french braid.

Then I collected some beads and bobby pins. (or you could use hairpins)

I slid the bead up the bobby pin on the front,

and slid it in the top of the braid,

all the way down.

I added a bow for extra sweetness.
Isn’t it pretty!? This would be a special look for a special occasion, maybe with some sparkly beads!
(Be sure to keep beads away from little ones.)

    What a great idea! I’ll have to do this (when my daughter actually lets me do her hair). Thank you for sharing at our Pinteresting Party!
