closeup of finished doA friend once asked me years ago how I get my kids' hair to look so neat and stay in place. I said detangler, bobby pins, and hairspray. Lot's of hairspray! :)


This hair-style is not just for kids. This is an elegant up-do that would be just the thing if you were going to a wedding or fancy party. It is easy to do and gives dramatic results reminiscent of years gone by. Have fun!

Total Time: 20-25 minutes

  • detangler or water, for wetting the hair
  • brush
  • rubberbands
  • bobby-pins
  • hairspray
  • decorative hair pin optional

  1. Wet and brush hair. Wetting it will make your hair-do easier and lay better.
