Special Occasion Hair...

In our religion, kids can choose to be baptized when they are 8 years old. It's a big deal for most kids! Emma had her birthday at the end of June, so her baptism is coming right up. We have a lot of out-of-town family that will not be able to come, so we decided to send out an email with some photos of her in her dress for those that can't make it, and the church info for those that will be able to make it.

This was a really fun and simple style- just a ponytail that was tightly curled and pinned into place. You can see from the pictures that I pushed almost all of the hair to the front of her head since it was only for photos.

Another super fun thing was the headband. I made it myself after seeing some around blogland that I loved, and was really proud of how it turned out. I was a little worried that it would be too much with the netting and the feathers, but it worked perfectly. I'm planning a tutorial on those soon, so make sure to check back for updates!


  1. Congrats to Emma! You made the right choice. And happy birthday!

  2. Congratulations to Emma, she is a beautiful young lady.

    I am really looking forward to the tutorial on the headband, it is adorable! :)

  3. Pretty headband, and I love how you pinned her curls up so you could see them in the picture.

  4. I never would have thought to use so much hair up front specifically for pics. Great idea for some of our little girls with thin hair. I love how the headband turned out, especially with her red hair.
