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.


Double Angel Braid Headband

Start along one side of her face and make an angel braid.  This is a braid where you only pick up hair from one side.  I pulled the hair from the front of her face as shown below.
Next make a parallel angel braid as shown below.  Do this to both sides of her head. 
 Below is a picture of the other side of her head as well.
 Take all 4 ends of the braids and pull them to the bottom, back of her neck and secure them together with an elastic.
 Below is a top view of the finished hairstyle.


How to Make a Poof

I recently got asked how I do my daughters poof.  I am going to attempt to explain
With my oldest daughter we often times just pull her hair back and use the bobby pins to push the poof forward.  I also use a straight end comb (rat tail comb) and put it evenly under a small layer of hair in the front and pull slightly.   This smooth out the hair and poofs it up.
However if we want a bigger poof.  This is the trick we use.
 Start by making your parts and pull the rest of the hair out of your way.

Next make a part in the center of your hair for the poof.  Move the hair across the front of her face out of the way for a moment.
Then pull the back half of the hair into an elastic and push it forward and secure with bobby pins.  **If you criss cross the bobby pins they say in much better.

Now take the front piece of hair and comb it over the poof and secure it with bobby pins.  If your daughters hair is too thin to stay with just bobby pins use an elastic and then use the bobby pins to push the hair forward.



Poof with Small Braids

Start by making a poof in the front center of her head.
 Along each side of the poof take a small amount of hair and make a braid.
 Wrap the braids around the ponytail holder and secure it with bobby pins.
 Below is the side view of her hair.

Braids to Messy Bun

Start with the bangs pulled back into a poof.
                                                 Make 1 small french braid along the poof.
Then make a 2nd french braid parallel to the first.  As shown below do this to both sides of her head. 
The top of her head with the poof and braids is shown below.
                                                        Then pull all the hair into a ponytail.
Make a messy bun with the ponytail.

                                            Below is a side view of the braids and messy bun.


2 Braids Across Face

This is a really cute fun and easy way to keep the bangs out of her eyes.
                                    Make the first french braid across the front of her face.
Make a parallel french braid along the lines of the first one.  Shown Below
                                                                 Simple easy and your done.


Toddler 2 Ponytails

Because of our age and the length of her hair we haven't been too creative lately with her. 
So here is one of the few changes in her hairstyle lately. 
We made a zig zag part and then put her hair into 2 ponytails.  This turned out to be adorable.  It is few and far between that I can convince her to have more than 1 elastic.  I hope this phase passes soon, but until then I will keep trying to convince her of new styles. 


Braid Fun

This is another really cute and fast hairstyle. 
When finished you will have a total of 4 braids.  I started on her right side just above her ear.  I made a small part as shown below.
 Then I made a simple braid I made a 2nd braid just above that one as shown below.  Make sure you braid all the way to the end.
                             Do the same to the other side.  Shown below is the left side of her head.
 Then pull all 4 braids to the center, back of her head.

Below is the side view.
This style is so quick you can do it in under 5 minutes.  For those days you need a really quick style.
