This week is red ribbon week at Vays school. Each day that has a different theme. Monday was red shirt day, Tuesday mustache day, Wednesday Crazy hair and Sock day, Thursday sunglasses day, and Friday pajama day. The most fun was the crazy hair and sock day. I had no idea what I was going to do. I wasn’t sure what Vay would let me do to her hair since she can be a little picky about how she has her hair. Also, I wasn’t so sure I was capable of making it as great as what I saw online.
Just so you all know I am not a hairstylist. Just learned how to french braid when I had Vay and I still am not a pro at that. I started googling crazy hair ideas and found a few Unicorn hairstyles. Vay loves unicorns so I was hoping she would be okay with me giving her a horn. Once I showed her some of the styles I found she was really excited for the Unicorn hair. Some of the styles didn’t look right to me because the horn was on the top on the head pointing straight up. I wanted it to look as realistic as possible. So I made the horn look more like it was coming out of the top of her forehead like a unicorn.
First, part the hair starting behind the ears and pin away or put in a ponytail. Next, part hair in a square shape at the middle front of her hair for the horn. To make her horn I formed a horn shape out of foil and then pinned it with bobby pins to her hair. The foil is great with making the shape as well as poking the bobby pins through. I think this worked much better than using paper as I saw someone else do.
I crimped her hair at the base of the front section of her hair that I was going to wrap around the horn. This was to make it more of a teased look without actually teasing her hair. Little girl heads are much too sensitive and she would have cried when I had to brush it out. I then started in sections and started to wrap the hair around the horn and pinning it.
Covering the top of the horn was the hardest part. I had to apply hair was to the top of the horn and then place the hair over it to make the hair stick. I then made a ponytail and used hair chalk to color her hair purple and pink. To get the chalk to work I had to wet her hair a little so once the hair dried I curled her hair. I also saved a little piece of hair by the horn to go behind the horn and look more like a mane which I also added color and curled.
Unicorn Crazy Socks
Since it was also crazy sock day I wanted to do something that would match Vays hair. So I looked all over for Unicorn and rainbow socks. I finally found some unicorn tights and socks at Target and decided to have her wear the tights and mix match the socks over it. The tights were thinner than I thought they would be but it’s so hot out right now I think it was best. She loves both the tights and socks so I know she will wear them again just probably not all together again.
Vay and I love how it all turned out. When she walked into class and the kids came up to her and complimented her and asked how did she get her hair like that. The horn lasted until the end of the day which I was surprised with how much Vay kept shaking her head around with it.
