Having little sisters, nieces and daughters around is the absolute greatest thing. Teaching our lovely littles about hair is a duty we don’t take lightly. We clearly remember that moment when we learned to do a 3 strand braid for the first time, and according to this Instagram post last week, it sounds like you all remember, too! For many of us, learning to do a simple ponytail or basic braid was a perfect place to start. But it’s a new day! Kids see so much more now and they’re very inspired by their glamorous mentors. Today’s reigning red carpet queens often wear colorful strands of pastel through the ends of the hair. Our sisters and nieces wanted in on the action, so we decided to go on beauty duty and create some colorful memories for them. First we showed them how to do temporary hair chalking on their own hair with soft pastels from the art store. Then, we created an outdoor picnic spread and provided each of them with a Barbie® Color Chalk Hair Doll (which comes with it’s own hair chalk applicator). These pretty princesses went. to. town! This was a party they’ll never forget (okay, we’ll never forget). We documented the day and made a little video to share with you called “All Dolled Up”. Hopefully it will inspire you to inspire a little girl in your life. Don’t forget to pass it on.
