Barb's Beauty Salon

We leave for Wyoming (the state, not the city) in the morning. The camper is packed and hooked up and we are ready to go. So what does that have to do with a beauty salon, you ask? (I just love putting words in your mouth!) Well, I have five girls, which means five heads of hair that need to be "done" each morning. Thankfully, several of those heads are attached to bodies that are capable of doing their own hair. Anyway, when we go on trips or camping, we have found that it is easier on everyone if we braid as many heads of hair as possible. That way, no one has to do their hair in the morning before we leave or while we are gone. I don't have to bring a huge supply of hair care products and everyone is happy :) (btw sometime I will do a post on all of the hair care products in our house - that would be a hoot)

So, I spent a few hours today and yesterday doing Nina, Molly & Emily's hair in a new style (for us). I couldn't do Raelea's for a couple reasons 1) she wouldn't want to sit still ong enough and 2)she has a bald spot in back where her ringworm is. I can hide that bald spot witha ponytail, but I wouldn't be able to hide it with braids. Zoe also missed out on the braiding fun because 1)she has puffs in her hair right now and 2) she wouldn't sit still or quiet enough to do even one braid. Okay, I'm so excited to show you the pictures of the girls' hair. It turned out so cool! Here you go...







I will see you all back on my blog on Tuesday. I hope you have a great weekend. I am sure I will have stories to tell of our travels. You can' ttravel 11 ours in a car with eight kids without stories to tell :)

  6. Tina,
    It is actually a very easy style to do - quicker and easier than cornrows, in my opinion.

  7. Amanda,
    That's only because the camera doesn't do close-ups :)

    Amazingly though, the braids still look great today which is day five :) I'm liking that!
