Hair bow woes!

Yes this is a serious topic... [:D]
Does anyone else out there have a little one who will not allow a hair bow of any kind in her hair? I have tried clips, bows, and tiny ponytail holders. She has a 5 second rule - before 5 seconds pass, the bow is gone! She is almost 21 months now and her hair is getting longer and is starting to need some type of "restraint". I really don't want to trim it, but I will if I need to[:(].Any suggestions or new inventions I haven't heard of? Thank so much!

Ah yes, the hair bow woes. Ariana just started keeping a ponytail holder in her hair this last month or so. She'd yank them out immediately before. What helped her I think is that her "buddy" at daycare always has her hair in a pony, so she wanted to be like Emily.

I don't want to cut Ariana's hair either, but did need to trim her bangs. This way she can wear her hair down if need be, but still see.

Good luck!

Same issues here. Carolyn is three and just recently started to let me do her hair. The style has to be fast- as I have a time limit on how long she will sit still. For a long time, I couldn't even brush it!!! Once she stated seeing her littl efriends at daycare with pretty hair, she decided that hers should be pretty, too. Don't worry- It will get better. I used to joke that i had a homeless child because she was always getting dirty and never let anyone brush her hair!

I wish that I had the magic solution for you, Allison!

Frankie just hit a point where she didn't take the "stuff" out of her hair anymore, probably because we kept putting it back in and she got tired of fighting us.

Hope that Emily keeps the stuff in her hair soon for 'ya!

Good luck

I broke down this weekend and gave both of my ladies chin-length bobs w/ bangs. Lily's came out better...she was a lot more patient.

I hated to see those baby curls go - it looks like their hair will be stick straight like mine from here on - but I couldn't stand seeing their bangs hanging in their eyes and they would not keep ANYTHING in their hair...just when one would decide to cooperate, the other would come along and rip her "do" out! LOL.

Good luck Alison! :-)

What about a headband? I guess she would probably pull that off too. I had bought some that Sherry Fisher had for her daughter. If you want to check out what they look like you can here:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=18786&item=4739113247&rd=1&ssPageName=WD1V

Laura doesn't seem to mind them once I get them on. They are really soft and last till they are much older. I hope something works out ... it may just be a matter of time [:)]

Hugs,
Suz
