Something classy, not too crazy, but really pretty and fun! Savy and I had such a blast creating this easy crazy hair for little girls! I don’t know about you but I am getting major Vanellope Von Shweetz vibes with this style, am I right?
Crazy Hair Day
Despite my attempts to get Savy to go with something really crazy like Barbie in the hair or a soda can, she really wanted to stick with something classy with a little bit of sassy! Crazy hair days for little girls can seem so intimidating but we found an easy way to jazz up the classic Dutch braid and incorporate just the right amount of crazy!
Crazy hair how-to
I started with my favorite spray bottle and wet down the hair and do a quick comb through to get rid of any tangles leftover from bedtime. If your little one is especially prone to frizzy hair I like this anti-frizz smoothing serum. After prepping the hair I took a comb and parted her hair right down the middle. Hint- plan ahead, if you want the glitter to cover the part then you don’t need to worry about keeping it too tidy. However, I found it a little tricky to get the part covered so next time I will definitely pay more attention to getting a nice even part.
Then we are going to clip one side of the hair up and out of the way and begin our braid. For this crazy hairstyle, I decided on a Dutch braid. If you are new here, I have a great tutorial on how to do a Dutch Braid for Beginners. Grab three sections at the front of the head, and the outer strands are going to go under the middle. Finger placement is super important for this hairstyle!
Dutch Braid Hair Step by Step
- Split the hair into three sections
2. Braid the left strand under the middle strand
3. Move the sections into the left hand
4. Braid the right strand under the middle strand
5. Move the sections in the right hand
6. Repeat starting at step #2!
Braid all the way down and tie it off.
From there, I take the end of the braid and start to twist it just where the braid starts to come off the head. Twist around and then place a few bobby pins around the base to hold it tight.
Repeat for the other side!
Once that’s done I’ll look over both braids and use a few more bobby pins to tuck anything in that looks out of place.
Time to make it crazy with glitter!
Now for the Confetti! I opened all the colors and mixed them together in a small bowl. Pour the glue over the confetti and mix. I tried using a tool but mixing it with hands ended up being the best!
I started near the crown of the head and used a patting motion to apply. Next time, I will apply the glue directly to the hair and then add the confetti from there.
I finish with a light coat of texture spray to hold it all together for the day!
Life is short, add the glitter!
