It's Flashback Friday time again. Remember these pink overnight curlers that our moms used to torture us with?! Well, I used to torture my little princess with them too. (Until I found Curlformers that is!) My daughter is 3 in this picture but I started with these curlers when she was about 2.
I used to get my princess to hold still by letting her color at the table, watch a show or I'd just do her hair while she was eating. :) Make sure the hair is wet when you put these curlers in. We dried and curled her bangs under and then pulled her hair up into her little top-piggies BEFORE putting the curlers in.
After about 3 hours her hair had finally dried (she has VERY thick hair) and we were able to take out the curlers. She looked just like Shirley Temple! These curls were great too because we had church the next day and they had loosened up perfectly by then!

I've decided that I'm going to try something fun for some of my Friday posts and do a "Flashback Friday". Many of you have younger girls with not so much hair so I'm going to share some of the ideas we've used for my princess throughout the years. (Keep in mind that the pictures may not be fantastic but hopefully they will at least give you some ideas!)
This is my princess in April of 2007 when she was 3 1/2 years old. She had some bangs that we always curled under. Her hair is sectioned on top from ear to ear and then divided in half for two top-piggies.
We flipped the bottoms of her hair up and out and added some ribbon clips to her piggies.
I miss doing fun little toddler do's!

Now, starting at the bottom of the braid, gently pull at the far right and left plates of the braid to loosen them up a bit and make them flair out more than the inside plates. Continue doing this up to the top of the braid, gently playing with those outside plates to loosen them up. When you've done that, go ahead and secure the bottom of the braid with an elastic.
Easy as that!
