Try this at home - LOVE it!

I consider myself a low maintenance girl. I usually leave the house with my hair in a ponytail and no make-up. Being the mom of 2 boys meant that styling hair was not really anything I had to worry about, except on that rare occasion when Fred & I had someplace to go, besides a date night to Target & a movie.


Now I have a girl! Mia is a princess, and she will sit patiently as I brush, comb and style her hair - as long as I promise that whatever I'm doing will be "fancy". Now, in the '80s I could tease, braid, style like nobody's business, but I'm a little out of practice. Still I had to share this CUTE heart braid that I've been doing this month.

Like it? This was my first attempt, and I've gotten MUCH better at making the heart look pretty good, even with my daughter's baby fine hair. I had BIG plans to get this post out prior to Valentine's Day. Seems to be a theme with this blog. Oh well, I think it's still worth posting simply because the site that I got the idea from has TONS of cute hairstyles. It's called Adopt a 'Do, and the mom who writes this blog is super talented and comes up with tons of great ideas. There's even a video tutorial for the Flip-Braided Heart (that's what it's called). Trust me, if you have girls with medium/long hair, you want to check out this blog.
