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.


Toddler Roll to Side Pony

My little one asked me a little while ago for a side ponytail.  With her hair being so short and thin, I wasn't sure how I was going to pull this off.  I have done this style on my oldest all the time but had never thought it would work in my toddlers hair.  But lucky or us it turned out and she loves it.

We started with wet hair then we rolled adding new hair with each roll until it was rolled to the opposite side of her head then we secured it with an elastic.
She likes flowers so we added a flower. 


Simple Toddler French Braids

I know this style seems simple which it is but this is a huge style for my toddler who has such thin and short hair.  She was so excited when we could finally french braid.
All you do is make a center part and then french braid each side down to the ends. 


Lauren Braid to Pony

This is another Lauren hairstyle from the TV show Make it or Break it.
We just recently cut my daughter's hair and gave her bangs so her style looks a little bit different. 
First start by making a part from front of her ear to the front of the other ear.  Pull the hair in the back out of your way. 
I started just above her right ear and made a french braid.  The key to this braid is pulling the hair under rather than over.  This makes the braid stand up on her head rather than lay flat. French braid all the way across the top front of her head. 
Secure the bottom of the braid with a clear elastic.
Pull all the hair into a low ponytail. 
Take a small piece of hair and wrap the elastic. 

4th of July Fancy Hair

This was done for the 4th of July but can be used for any holiday all you have to do is change the decorations you use.
I started by making a front poof. 
Then I braided her sides up.  Each side gets french braided up to the middle of her head.
Then pull all the hair into a ponytail
Now make a messy bun. 
Then I found a red white and blue paper weight at the dollar store I pulled them apart and the 2 picture below are the items separated.
I pulled this one into individual strands and started to tie them into her hair. 
The picture below has wire in it and was easy to wrap in and out of her hair. 
Below is the back of her hair.

Right before it got dark we took glow in the dark bracelets and wrapped them through her hair as shown below.

4th of July Firework

I apologize I didn't get this up for the 4th of July things have been busy as most of you experience too!
The state we live in celebrates the 24th of July much like the 4th of July which I forget that other states don't celebrate.  

This style was so simple and she turned out to be the most patriotic hair around our town.
All I did was make a poof then put her hair into pigtails (since she doesn't have much hair this was the easiest)
I went to our local dollar store and found a patriotic paper weight that had the strings below 
and stars attached to a metal wire wrapped in red white and blue. 
I folded the long strands of red white and blue over so they weren't so long and secured them with an elastic.
Right before we went out for the night we wrapped bracelet glow sticks in between each pigtail.  Since the bracelets were much heavier than her hair we added a 3 on across the top of her head.


Rolls to Side Ponytail

This is a quick and simple style. 
Start with a small roll.  Rolling her bangs back but leave a couple small amounts of hair around her face (these will be curled in ringlets)
Then roll all the hair starting on the opposite side.  Roll the hair into a side ponytail. 
Secure all the hair on the side with an elastic.
I then put ringlets in the hair around her face and the ponytail along with wrapping the ponytail with her own hair.
