an option for ribbon in the hair

I used a bobby pin because I was in a rush. But if I would have taken the time - I would have grabbed a safety pin & pinned it to the ribbon - which I recommend. If you are going to use a bobby pin like I have in this picture, just slide the ribbon thru & make sure that it's thru enough to not come out.
I pulled her hair up & curled it & then pinned it up, which is not very convenient for putting a bow into it. But I love the look of a bow, it always finishes her hair off. So I thought this would be a cute way of adding your bow: Start weaving with the bobby pin or safety pin.
Make your way all around the pony or what hair you have pulled up.

I started at the bottom so it finished at the bottom & met together. I tied the hair in a bow where you could see it hanging out of her hair. Try it next time you are having a hard time placing a bow in a pinned up do.

I saw this idea on another blog... Did you get the idea form that other blog? I can't remember which blog it was, but I am pretty sure it was done somewhere else.

No, I never look at other hair blogs so I wouldn't know.

I love reading your blog. I have two boys, but I love to see the many different ways you do hair. I teach Pre-K and have tried some of your creations on my students when they are having a bad hair day. It is so much fun. My 16 year old sister also lets me try things out on her hair. This is a great site. I have told many mothers with girls about it.

Very cute ideas. This is my first look at your blog. I noticed that your pink ribbon's edge was fraying. Did you know that if you put a satin ribbon just above a match flame, the ribbon will melt just slightly and not fray again? I only learned that recently & love it. Just be careful not to get the ribbon too hot or it will burn!

Oh I love this!!! How clever! My daughter wears her hair up a lot to church and sometimes our bows look out of place in certain up-dos! Can't wait to try it!
