I just wanted to let everyone know the story of The Wright Hair. I am fairly new to blogging about hair but I have been doing my little girls hairstyles since the day my oldest daughter was born. The first thing out of the doctors mouth was I hope you ordered a girl full of hair. When my 2nd daughter arrived we were not so lucky with the hair genes. She has thin short hair. It was with the frustrations I had trying to do my 2nd ones hair that I decided to start this blog. I figured if I struggled this much there must be others struggling too. I am a working mom and getting my girls ready every morning is the best time of the day for me. This is a time we get to bond without other distractions. Right now my girls and I are enjoying our time together. I am sure it will only be a short time before my oldest wants to do her own hair. But for now we invite you to join us on the Wrights Journey through hair. Because of being a working mom, sometimes we will do fancy dos and sometimes quick dos, other times the do's are dont's but we welcome everyone to come along for the ride.


Braid to Ponytail

We started with a square part on the top of her head. Pull the hair towards her ear and make a simple braid.

The picture below is the simple braid.

Before you pull the hair into a ponytail back comb a small amount of hair behind the braid. Then pull all the hair into a lower ponytail.

We added a black ribbon for fun. The hairstyle is as simple as that and you have a really cute style.

Toddler Hair

As most of you know who have toddlers know it is very difficult to come up with new ideas especially when they have thin straight hair. So here we go with another idea.
Since she is only 2 it is sometimes hard to get pictures so these are all taken after the hair has been done so I will do my best to describe what was done.
Around the front of her face I made 3 ponytails.

Once the ponytails are in place I took the middle ponytail and separated into 3 pieces. Take one piece and pull it towards the far side ponytail and take half of that ponytail and secure with an elastic.

Do the same thing on the other side. This gives you a total of five elastics.

If this doesn't make sense please ask questions and I will explain further.


2 Messy Buns

Sorry it has been awhile since my last post I have been out of town on a business trip but I am back and here is another hair style.
Make a part in the center of her head. Then take a small section and pull the hair through to make a twist.

Take another small section of hair and pull it through to make another twist.
Do this to both sides of her head.

The picture below is a picture of the top of her head.

Make 2 ponytails and on the final flip of the elastic don't pull all the way through.

We then made messy buns with elastics and bobby pins

The picture below is a picture of the side of her head.


Toddler Ribbon Headband

Since my daughters hair is so thin we did a simple version of the ponytails.
I started and made 3 very small ponytails across the front of her head.
Then I placed the ribbon behind the elastics.

On the 2nd row of elastics I separated only the middle front elastic and pulled it across the ribbon and secured with 2 different ponytails (as shown above). For the remaining 2 other ponytails I pulled them straight across the ribbon and secured with only 1 ponytail (as shown below)


Plain Hair Headband

There are some days when I get the statement. "I just want plain hair today" Today was one of those days. She wanted a pink ribbon and since these never stay in the hair we took a small amount of hair around the face and pulled it down.

Then put the ribbon behind the small part of hair.
We secured the ribbon at the base of her head in a double knot.

Then take the small amount of hair and twist it as shown below. Do this to both sides.

Secure the 2 twists with an elastic under about half of her hair. The twist keep the ribbon in place all day.

Then we straightened the rest of her hair.
