A Romantic Hairstyle and Lace Dress




Oh, what fun...  my young lady daughter who just a few years ago liked more "tomboy" things.... now enjoys dressing up sometimes.

She wanted to have her hair curled to look nice with her  beautiful lacy dress she planned to wear for church.











 It started with putting sponge rollers in her hair the night before. Her older sister put the rollers in her wet hair, so that by morning she would have curls. 

There were 61 rollers! This daughter has a LOT of hair! I remember sleeping on those pink rollers when I was a kid... it wasn't too comfortable. She did say that she didn't sleep very well.  :)The things we do to have curls!

This morning, my older daughter is shown here taking the rollers out of her hair.







We have curls!!!

 I pulled curls to the top and back and held them in place with bobby pins. A little here...a little there... it was starting to get that romantic look. :)  

We put a pretty comb at the top and called it done. She looked beautiful... of course she always does, but this was special....














 Lace dress, curls in her hair, pearl earrings...  the stuff of princess dreams. 



By the way, a couple of her brothers didn't like the curls... they prefer her hair as it usually is which is a bit wavy and a bit straight, not curly.
 Brothers can be like that... but they tolerate the curls and really like that she dresses in such a feminine way. Of course, they rarely TELL her that!   :) 



This pretty and romantic hairstyle takes a little longer than braids or other types of hairstyles, but it is special and worth the extra effort sometimes.  :)
















The lace dress has a full skirt and works great for twirling! :) 

The hairstyle was a success, although I should have put a few more bobby pins in it... after a couple of hours, some of the curls started to fall down a bit.

All in all it was a success..... but we won't do it very often. That just makes it all the more special.

How precious to see our children grow and enjoy life. What a blessing that God has entrusted these kids to us... we need to be so careful to raise them to honor the Lord.

Thank you for visiting today.

    1. They sure looked nice, but you are right... they are not comfortable. My mom sleeps on the hard curlers w/ all of the things poking out... I have NO idea how she can handle that! :)

    1. It is special... my oldest daughter said one thing she loves about Easter Sunday is that she can wear such beautifully romantic outfits and it is "normal" for that day. :) She was ill this year and not able to go or dress up, but enjoyed seeing her younger sister dress up. I am thankful my daughters like to look so feminine much of the time.

    1. I agree! I had much responsibility as a child and I never liked dolls.. what was the point of a doll when I had real children and babies to take care of at a young age.... BUT when I had my first daughter, I learned how fun it was to dress up my precious little girl. I may have overdone it a bit, but I learned. :)

  9. Aw, she looks very beautiful! The dress, the curls . . . very special indeed! So fun to transform from tom-boy to a lovely little lady, even if it was a little hard to sleep - it's worth it sometimes :)

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet comment... it was fun to do together... and even more fun because SHE wanted it instead of me encouraging it. :)

    My daughters both have wild, curly hair and I love it. It's a little challenging to care for, but beautiful nonetheless.

    1. Thank you. My daughter's hair isn't normally like this so it is a treat for her. Isn't it a blessing to have daughters and to enjoy doing things with them?.. like fixing their hair. :) Thank you for visiting.
