I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it here on the blog….but when I was a little girl, I LOVED doing hair! My “specialty” was french braiding and starting when I was in 2nd grade, I would french braid all my friends’ hair on the long bus ride to school every morning. We lived out in the country and our bus ride was at least 45-60 minutes long and I did that for YEARS…..so let me tell ya, I braided miles and miles of hair! :) My two daughters, Ellie and Chloe, both love doing hair too and oftentimes ask if they can sit behind me and add braids and pony tails and hair bows to my hair. Their technique needs a little tweaking (umm….OUCH!), but it’s fun to see what they come up with!
I was just recently introduced to a cute children’s show on Nick Jr, called Sunny Day, which is about a spunky salon owner named Sunny and her friends Rox and Blair, who help her solve problems/dilemmas in their town—all while creating new hairstyles and having fun with hair! The concept is unique….and my girls (especially Chloe) really love it! Plus they have extra videos with hair style tutorials called “Style Files”, created on real life models, which are fun for my girls to watch and try to recreate! You can watch Sunny Day weekdays on Nickelodeon!
I was invited to participate in coming up with a Sunny Day inspired project, and I knew my girls would be all in, so I said, SURE!! The show is very bright and happy, with tons of color and music…..so I knew I wanted to create something along those lines. And because my girls can never have enough hair accessories, I made these really easy Fabric Knot Hair Bows, that are so darling in their hair! But, I also decided to take some pictures of a few simple hairstyles that we use now and then, that also work really well with these Fabric Knot Hair Bows….just in case any of you need some new ideas, as well as pictures to see how they’re created! (More on that down below…)
When I showed Chloe her first Sunny Day episode….she immediately ran and grabbed her box of hair supplies and her mannequin head, and got right to work!
