My new favorite way to DO Penny's hair

Penny has challenging hair. I love it, its beautiful, but its a challenge to have it be able to look decent all day long (perhaps that is the challenge for all little girls?). Its curly and it likes to do its own thing and so does Penny....unfortunately, some of the things Penny likes to do (like roll on the floor, use her head as a sliding mat, and hide under blankets) wreak havoc on a hairstyle ...... no matter what hair type you have. Add curls and you've got yourself a great hairstyle for crazy hair day at school. So on many days out of the week this is what Penny looks like by the end of the day (or right after she wakes up from naptime)




But, when I do her hair, its so angelic and sweet I could just stare at her all day. The curls on the side of her head make the perfect ringlets usually. I just love it.
This is my new favorite way to do Penny's hair. Her hair is actually down to her shoulder blades and getting quite long.
She's making a silly face here.....her favorite thing to do is make a silly face for the camera and laugh at it when she's done.
I didn't put a clip on her bangs, I usually do.....it looks better with a clip, but you get the idea. So curly and sweet.

I SO get the curly hair love- and also the ever present bedhead/ fro that might happen if the curls get touched in any way.

the curly hair is fascinating, since you kids didn't get anything like that. it is very cute. also the chocolate drop eyes. mmmmm.....

Yes, Katy....I never thought I would have a little girl with curls but just LOVED Lucy's curls. They must have rubbed off on me while I was pregnant. =)

I've been tempted to straighten Penny's hair to see what it looks like...but she's still so little and I'd probably burn her. I loved Lucy's straight hair in that post you did...but agree that the curls suit her better. =)

carry a bottle of detangler in your purse for quicky fix ups.
her curls are awesome. especially the ringlets.

I love her hair. It looks time consuming, but it is so cute.

I do have a little bottle of detangler (super small bottle, enought for like 5 hair do's) and often I use it if Penny didn't take the comb out of my purse. =)

We make our own detangler because the stuff at the store just makes her hair crunchy and static-y (water and a few squirts of conditioner do the trick...no exact science).


Her hair doesn't ALWAYS look like the crazy pictures......those were actually post sleeping. I was being dramatic. =) But on days like today when I don't really care....... it can get pretty out of control.

I love her curly hair. I have always wanted a littel girl with brown curly hair, but got boys with curly hair instead...that's why Rikk keeps their hair SUPER short. Enjoy doing her hair, she's totally adorable.
