My princess is a little too old for Sesame Street but she still loves Abby Cadabby. After all, what girl wouldn't love a darling little pink fairy with awesome hair?
This is our version of her cute hair. We started by parting the hair right down the middle and Pulling each half up into a piggie by securing it with an elastic.
Next we created some Kissy Lip Buns. Basically they are Messy Buns for longer hair. Grab another elastic and wrap it around the piggie again until your last chance to wrap it when you will want to only pull the hair half-way through.
Now puff the bit off hair that is still hanging down up under the top poof and grab yet another elastic. Wrap it around both poofs as tightly as you can until it is secured.
Now tug at each poof a little bit and make it look a bit disheveled. Repeat the same steps with your second piggie.
Add some hair clips underneath the Kissy Lip Buns and you have your Abby Cadabby hairstyle!
We also used a variation of this for my princess this last weekend because she was in our local St. Patrick's Day parade.
We wrapped some clover garland around the outside of the buns with some gold coins inserted on top.
We also stuck a leprechaun hair clip in the middle of each bun.
And it wouldn't be a performance without TONS of spray glitter! :)
