We used our Karmin wand to curl Aislyn’s hair. You can find it here:

Hairstyle instructions:

~1. Part hair in front on side or center part, to just BEFORE the ear, on both sides.

~2. Pull hair that you’ve sectioned off and clip out of the way. Next section off a large chunk behind her ear, and underneath, making the piece fairly thick–to make a thicker braid for the headband.

~3. Braid this section loosely, pulling it wide as you braid. Braid to the ends and secure with a clear elastic.

~4. Pull this braid up and over, laying it on the part line where you parted off the front section.

~5. Bring it to where it ends, and anchor it to the head, grabbing a small section of hair from the head, and fastening the two parts together with a clear elastic. Hopefully this will be by the ear or below. Try to hide the end in an inconspicuous spot. If the hair is too short to wrap completely over the head- try doing two braids, one on each side, and meeting in the middle on top of the head.

~6. You can leave the two front sections loose and/or tuck behind the ears. OR- you can take the two sections, and fasten them underneath the hair in the back with a clear elastic, like we’ve done here.

~7. Spray with some spray and you are done!!

If  you do try this one out– we’d love to see it! Tag it #phifhairheadband and post it on Instagram! When do your kids start school!?

We have one more week of playing, then it’s back to the grind. It seems like once I’ve gotten used to having them home, and we are really getting into our summer groove, then it’s over and we’ve got to readjust once again. Melancholy days. 🙂 Enjoy those kiddos– they grow too fast!!
