    DD1 has hair down to her elbows, and she's getting it cut in a few months.

    In the meantime, she says she's really tired of ponytails, and wants to know how y'all put up your long hair.

    Any ideas for her?

    Mmmm, I saw that. DD's done that for three years so far, because her hair grows SUPER fast. She'll be giving over a foot this time!

    How did you put up your hair before you cut it? It's such a lovely shade- mine's what horse people call mouse brown. [​IMG] Not the purtiest color.

    My favorite way to wear long hair is to do either a single braid or braided pigtails. If I want to put it up I do a single braid, roll it up into a bun and put a hairstick through it to hold it up. Braided pigtails are also really cute bunned up and secured with bobby pins.

    Thanks! The flash washed it out a bit. My hair is dark brown with a lot of red in it.

    I just pulled it back in a barrette or a loose braid to prevent as much damage as possible.

    I twist my hair up and secure it with a clip alot. It doesn't seem to feel so heavy that way.

    I twist it up with a clip a lot or wear it in a braid to get it out of my way. I hate wearing ponytails because it doesn't completely contain my hair.

    Quote:That. My hair is down to the small of my back. Can't get brave enough to cut it. As long as I can get it mostly off my neck I'm okay.

    I don't like to have to mess with it much so it's either loose, in a single braid, or in a bun.

    Thanks for all your ideas, guys! She uses clips sometimes- her hair's so thick it's hard to find ones big enough to hold.

    She just (like 5 minutes ago) taught herself how to use sticks. [​IMG] I know she's not little anymore, but it's still scary how quickly she teaches herself things.
