We already looked at a shop dedicated to everything boy.  So where should we head now?  Everything girl of course!  After all…  I have a little girl now!  🙂   Recently Baby Wisp sent me their Mini Latch Clip Posh in White.  These hair clips are revolutionary and different than any standard clip.  One word can actually sum up my thoughts on Baby Wisp:  AMAZING!
It latches into Ruby’s hair and stays put.
One in it’s seriously not going to move!
Here’s a great demonstration on how the unique latch mechanism works:


See?  AMAZING!

Baby Wisp has so many different latch clip styles to choose from!

 Literally bunches and bunches!

Baby Wisp also has other types of clips and barrettes…

And much more!  Like items other than hair accessories…
Tutus & Tank Tops:
Booties:
And adorable frilly bottoms!
Who wants to have $20 to spend at Baby Wisp???  Well, fortunately that’s what is being given away to the winner of this giveaway, so get entering!  🙂

My family and friends…okay basically anyone who knows me knows that if I’m wearing my hair down then it has been flat ironed.  It’s true.  For starters I have super thick hair.  Top that with some really strange curl going on and you have a crazy head of hair!  My hair is nowhere near straight and not curly enough to have the perfect ringlets.  Lets face it I’m probably not alone on this.  Random pieces of straight with really curly pieces.  You get the idea.  So everyone knows that the perfect holiday gift for me would be ANYTHING to make my hair straighter!  Which translates into anything sold by Flat Iron Experts.  Recently they sent me this beauty:

It heats up super fast and leaves the hair super shiny!  Plus, it’s the perfect holiday color with those red ceramic plates!  🙂  Flat Iron Experts also has loads of other tourmaline flat irons to choose from.  Also, curling wands which are all the rage right now…

I’m thinking I need that to use after I flat iron to get the trendy look!

Banjo has an interesting toddler hair style.  Here are just a few of the looks that he has had:

Yep he’s got some curly and unruly hair!

 

We prefer to keep it on the long side, because…

 Well, he just looks totally different without his curls!!

But how to tame the crazy hair?

Recently Monkey Brains sent him some fantastic hair gel and hair refresher!

 

And it has really done the trick:

See?  Perfection!  🙂

I’m sure that you are particular about your kids hair, too.  So be sure and check out all the great product at Monkey Brains!

Now you wouldn’t know it by looking at my bio pic, but my hair is naturally NOT straight.  In fact it takes a good hour just to get my hair to look that smooth.  I wouldn’t say that I have tight curls, because I don’t.  But what I do have is a mess!  :)  Just lots of random pieces that will curl better than others and loads of frizz.  So it’s not surprising that I tend to tie my hair back quite often.  When I do wear it down then I start by blow drying, rounding brushing (sometimes), and flat ironing.  I’ve been doing this for a good 10+ years, so I’ve come to be a flat iron hair snob.  It has to be just the right temperature.  Provide just the right amount of coverage in terms of plate size.  My new best friend?

BARBAR  recently sent me this BARBAR 1400 “BT” Black Tourmaline Flat Iron 1″.  It’s fabulous and seriously cuts hair straightening time in half!

BARBAR  also has other great tools for hair styling.  Like:

Brushes

 

Curling Irons

Blow Dryers

Even tools for cutting hair!

 

Who wants to win their very own BARBAR 1400 “BT” Black Tourmaline Flat Iron 1″?  Well then get entering, because that’s what is being given away from BARBAR!

{DIY} Hairstyling Tips From The Wright Hair

The Wright Hair

 

 

I just wanted to let everyone know the story of The Wright Hair…

I am fairly new to blogging about hair but I have been doing my oldest daughters hair since the day she was born almost 7 years ago. The first thing out of the doctor’s mouth was I hope you ordered a girl with a full head of hair. My oldest has the most gorgeous thick brown hair. Doing her hair was a so much fun and her hair always turned out so cute.

When my 2nd daughter arrived we were not so lucky with the hair genes. She has very thin straight hair. Her hair doesn’t grow very fast either. She is 3 now and her hair is cut into an A line. It was with the frustrations of my youngest hair that I started The Wright Hair Blog.

I figured if I struggled this much doing her hair there must be others struggling too. I am a working mom and getting my girls ready every morning is the best time of the day for me. This is our quality time without other distractions. Right now my girls and I are enjoying our time together. I am sure it will only be a short time before my oldest wants to do her own hair. But for now we invite you to join us on the Wrights Journey through hair. Because of being a working mom, sometimes we will do fancy dos and sometimes quick dos, other times are do’s are don’ts but we welcome everyone to come along for the ride.

I also want to share a few tips I have learned along my journey of doing hair.

Tip 1. For a smooth hairstyle especially for braids it is always better to do the hair while it is wet. So either right out of the tub or spray the area with a squirt bottle.

Tip 2. Remember that bobbie pins are your friends. If a style is not working exactly how you want use bobbie pins to move the hair and keep it in place. On the market now is bobbie pin that is about half the size as the old ones, these are perfect for little girl’s hair.

Tip 3. For infants use Karo Syrup or a stick of Glue to attach bows onto their head. Both of these are easy to use and will come off with water or during their bath.

Tip 4. If you want to use sponge curlers remember to make smaller parts if your daughter has thick hair. Otherwise the hair will not dry by morning.

Tip 5. For ringlets I use a special curling iron that has grooves in it. When using this curling iron the ringlets stay in all day and can be used for a 2nd day style (with a few touch ups)

For more tips and cut hairstyles check out my blog at thewrighthair.blogspot.com.

I would also love for all of you to share your styles and tips with me. You can post your pictures on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Hairstyles-for-girls-The-Wright-Hair/117955318220916?ref=sgm.

Funky Twist Fan Hairstyle from Kori at Princess Hairstyles

Are you looking for a super dandy DIY hairstyle for your tween?  Well, then look no further than the cute hairstyles that can be found at Princess Hairstyles.  Welcome to our guest posting from Kori!

Hi, I’m Kori.  My daughter and I have a great time together working on our blog and coming up with new hairstyles.  Feel free to stop by our blog Princess Hairstyles any time for fun hairstyle ideas.

This fun and funky updo hairstyle is one of our new favs because it brings lots of attention and compliments, but takes less than 5 minutes to complete (for real.) We’re going to be loving 5 minute hairstyles at our house when school starts here in a couple of weeks. Gah, can’t believe it’s back to school time already! Can you?

twist hairstyle

 Did I mention this hairstyle is super easy too? Not much to it at all! Just make a standard ponytail then take small sections of hair in the ponytail and twist them up. Secure the twisted pieces, leaving out some ends at the top with a clip. The clips we use are “Goody” brand and hold really well. They even held up to the monkey bars, we tested them!! We’ve tried using some other “cheap clips” and trust me, it’s worth spending a little extra to get some that are actually going to stay in.

So anyway, no rhyme or reason to this. Place the twists wherever you would like until all of the hair in the ponytail is used up. Shoulder length hair is perfect for this style. If you’re working with longer hair, you can twist the pieces up more until they start to coil to shorten them up a bit. (Similar to the twists we used in this flower girl hairstyle.) You could also do a variation of this style with a half pony instead, or leave some hair down in the ponytail if you wanted to.
hairstyle with twists
After you get all the hair twisted, you can spike the ends out with some hairspray or gel. It really helps if you’re working with wet hair.

hairstyles for girls
On our facebook page I recently asked which type of hair tutorials you all prefer (video or photo) and the response was mixed. So, I guess we’ll just keep doing what we’re doing and throw in a little of both (depending on the style.) 
Since this was a quick hairdo, we had time to make a video tutorial for all of you youtube lovers as well. Yay! :) 

Thank you Kori for such a dandy guest post.  All of our readers…don’t forget to check out the other dandy hairstyles at Princess Hairstyles!  It’s times like this that I wish I had a little girl to work hair wonders on!  🙂
