Picture Perfect

Don't forget to check if you are a winner of the GIVEAWAY! If I don't hear from the winners by Wednesday I will choose another one, so go check it out!

After school today we are going to go get some family pictures done, and since I won't have time between getting Ryne from school and driving to where the pictures will be taken to curl her hair I decided to curl it before school, I figure I can handle a few touch ups. I love simple and elegant for pictures, ya don't want to get get to fancy or all people will notice is the hair and not your beautiful little girl!

1. First I did an exaggerated side part. I then French Braided the section, instead of pulling small sections of the hair up I took BIG chunky sections creating a looser and more full braid. You can do what you want depending on the look you want.
2. Then I took my small curling iron and just curled the rest of her hair and I haired sprayed it to death. Here's hoping it will last until picture time!This won't be the bow she is wearing for the pictures but it needed something.
