'Cause I haven't. That's why you so often see the quick, easy little side ponytail on the top of Ro and Ree's heads. Keeps the hair out of their faces, lasts all day long through twinado-force roughhousing, and only takes about six seconds to do. This morning I tried something new with Ro. We called it Split Rainbow Ponies, and I'm kinda liking it. It was a new variation on Ro's old fave hairdo called Rainbow Ponies. If you want to try it, mist all of the hair with a spray bottle. Make a row of three small ponytails in the front and secure them with rubberbands (the only ones we use are Kid Connection bands from Walmart, seriously, they rock). Then split each front-row pony in half and join it with its neighboring half of a pony and a little bit of new hair. The new hair anchors the pony. I made four ponies for the second row. I would have liked to make a third row, but Ro announced we were done, so we stopped there and were all happy. I used one color of bands for the first row and a different color for the second row. And since this was the first time trying this hairdo, I didn't get it as smooth as I should have (hence the little clump of snarly hair in the first picture). But hey, any hairdo that stays in the girls' slippery hair all through preschool and only takes a few minutes to do is a big win in this house. I'll definitely do this one again.
