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.
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 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.
I know she's not little anymore, but it's still scary how quickly she teaches herself things.
