For the love of hair: My favorite hair sites!


I have a lot of hair and I have 2 little girls who:

  1. Also have a lot of hair…
  2. Love it when I do their hair…
  3. Love it when I do fun stuff with my own!

P.S. I do not know how to French braid and am surprised my Mother-Of-Daughters Card has not been revoked. However, it looks like one of my favorite sites just posted a tutorial – How To French Braid For Beginners. Looks like I’ll be learning how to french braid and wil be able to keep that card after all!

I have several favorite hair sites… the one with the french braid tutorial Princess Hairstyles, Love Maegan, and She Lets Her Hair Down. Oh, and Babes in Hairland… never can get enough hair tutorials for girls!

Oh, and I CANNOT forget Pinterest. True, true… Pinterest is a hair tutorial site, but good golly miss molly it is a treasure trove of hair-do idea-finding! That is where I found She Let’s Her Hair Down.


I have never created my own tutorial, but it’s on my to-do list. I mean, I have the will… I have the hair…

And my daughter… All that hair was MADE for a blogging mom to tutorial. Ya know?

My best tip for finding the best tip??? BROWSE. Grab a drink and a yummy snack, snuggle up with your laptop and browse your heart out! When I happen upon a tutorial I love, I spend time looking through the site… I OOOOH. I AAAAAH. And I Pin. Site’s like Princess Hairstyles provide great video tutorials and She Lets Her Hair Down features beautiful photography along with hair news and interest items.

    I followed one of the tutorials you pinned yesterday and my hair looks real pretty. Oh ae the queen of fishing up good stuff for us. I know I could be browsing myself, but the way I see it, you like pinning, I like pinching-everybody wins.

    • Dude. I tried it too! I just didn’t get pics. It looked pretty nice, but I found I needed to fuss with it a bit more than I’d hoped. I also had to do, like 10 sections instead of 4. My hair would have never ever ever ever ever dried. I will do it again… but it just takes a bit more time that I have patience for 🙂

    Stop distracting me! I’ve got stuff to do and bed to get to! Criminy, woman! :oP

    You’re so lucky that your girls love to have you do their hair. Both of my girls have BEEEEYOOOOOOOTIFUL (if I do say so myself) long hair, and they don’t like to have it put up… oldest doesn’t even like to wear a head band. I make the younger have her hair pulled back on top or in a headband, though, because man oh man she just cannot keep her hair out of her food. Or her food out of her hair. GAH. My only child-hair-joy comes when the school sends an e-mail saying, “oh CRAP, somebody’s got lice, kids with long hair must have it up for the next week.” Which, you know, comes with a risk. But at least I get to put my girls’ hair up.

    • You know, my middle daughter became most motivated after I had to chop 6 inches off due to lice. Then she became motivated to keep it back during the time… and then she just kept on stylin’. Kids are funny, though… you just never know what will click with them. My middle (also) she HATES dresses/skirts, etc… but loves doing cute things to her hair and painting her nails. Go figure!

    Did the girls hate having their hair done as toddlers? Please say yes, so I can have hope Pixie will grow out of this! Every pigtail is a war.

    I’m so NOT good with hair but would love to try some new things with my little girl (eventually). Right now we just do pigtails. EVERY DAY. And she’s getting her first haircut later this week. can’t wait to check out these sites though 🙂

    It’s so nice to see you also did this Life Well Lived post! I have very thick, wavy hair and so I have no luck making a French braid in my hair –it ends up looking too frizzy.

    I received a lot of good recommendations on hair products from blog readers that I can’t wait to try.

  7. Yes! Pinterest is THE best place to find lots of hair styles/tutorials. I love all the additional links you supplied here, great tips and tricks on these sites. I’m very much
    into braiding right now. It started last year when I was home with my Little One and decided I couldn’t take my ponytail any more – so I decided to try a french braid on myself…it only took 10 times to really get it and now I ‘m a pro….you can do it! 🙂

    • Awesome! Glad I was able to provide some new stuff too! There is so much out there. I love learning about the sources others use. Saves lots of searching and nothing like a good recommendation, ya know? 🙂

  8. I luvs me some Pinterest! Pinterest and I are BFF’s! =) And I am afraid I was not blessed by the hair fairy’s or whomever blesses us with hair because I have very thin hair and not much of it! And my daughter doesn’t have much more than I do, thought it is a touch thicker than mine….just a touch!
