The Girls Hairstyle Guide Giveaway!

Once Penelope's hair started getting longer I started to love to do her hair.  I have to admit I like it more than she does.  But sometimes she does get into the different styles.  After just a little while we got kind of stuck in doing the same thing every day (granted this is before Leon was born and I had more time to do her hair).  So I started putting together different styles and everyday we took a picture.  I put together  index of over 40 hairstyles we did and now when I want to do her hair I just quickly pull it up and let her pick one. I even organized the pictures in order of how much time they take me.  So when we are pressed for time I make sure she picks one of the easy ones.  It worked out perfectly for us.

I told a few friends what we were doing and they all wanted a copy.  So I put together a ebook for everyone!  Each hairstyle has a front and back picture and a short description of what I did.  After I finished it I was surprised by how much I actually use it.  I keep it on our computer desktop so I can pull it up quickly when I need to get it.  Sometimes Penelope actually gets upset when I tell her we don't have time to do her hair.  She really likes the control this gives her.  It is a way for her to make one small decision about her life.  And I'm all about giving children as much control over their own lives as possible.
Because I use it so much I wanted to make it available to everyone else (especially my readers) so I sell this little booklet for everyone for only $1.99 on amazon.  It is called The Girls Hairstyle Guide, so go check it out!  

I'm going to give away 5 to the winners so be sure to enter!

This is just what I need! My daughter went from looking like Beiber to looking like a Beatle and refuses to keep any headbands or floral arrangements in her hair! Side note: any advice for best hair ties?

Yes, I love the little tiny rubber ones. They are the only ones that I can get to stay sometimes. I know the dollar store sells them in packs of like 500. That is where I buy them. :-) Good luck.
