    5 Easy Ways to Care for your Little Girl’s Hair

    Baby Flower Crown Headbands

    When it comes to caring for their little girl’s hair, many parents aren’t sure if they are ‘doing it right.’ Below are 5 easy ways to care for your toddler daughter’s hair that will ensure that it looks and feels wonderfully soft and silky.

    #1 – Don’t Wash her Hair Every Day

    This may sound counterintuitive, but in most cases, your toddler daughter’s hair should only be washed every 2 – 3 days, as this will prevent the hair and scalp from drying out too much. When washing her hair, apply a small amount of shampoo and gently massage it through her hair, using soft, circular motions. Always ensure that lukewarm water is used, as this will not only prevent her scalp from being scalded; it will also prevent her hair from being damaged. If there are any long pieces of hair, use 1 or 2 small snap baby girl hair clips to pin them out of her eyes until it is dry.

    #2 – Dry and Style Carefully

    When drying your toddler daughter’s hair, it should be done so as carefully as possible to prevent pulling and possible hair breakage. Using a soft cotton towel, pat the hair gently to remove as much water as possible – don’t rub it, as this could cause some of the hair to fall out – not to mention be extremely uncomfortable as well. Although it is not always recommended to use hair dryers on toddlers’ hair, it may sometimes be necessary. Always use the coolest possible setting to prevent scalding, and use a soft brush to style it afterwards.

    #3 – Avoid Excessive Use of Chemical Hair Care Products

    Many parents make the mistake of trying to mimic adult hairstyles on their toddler daughters. However, if this involves the use of numerous styling gels and other chemical-based products, they could end up damaging the hair and causing scalp irritation as well. In most cases, all that will be needed to make your daughter’s hair look as cute as possible is a gentle brush and the use of one or two accessories such as a heart-embellished baby girl headband or some cute baby girl hair clips. Black Tutu

    #4 – Use Dedicated Little Girl Hair Accessories

    Although there are many funky hair accessories on the market for older girls, these are not normally suitable for use in toddler girls’ hair because they have been designed to hold or control larger volumes of hair than what most toddlers have. Instead, opt for dedicated baby girl headband accessories or even a few sparkly baby girl hair clips. These are smaller than other accessories, which mean that they will stay in the hair and not be uncomfortable at all.

    #5 – Use a Child-friendly Hair Salon

    Eventually, the time will come when your daughter’s hair needs to be trimmed. Many toddlers are somewhat apprehensive when it comes to visiting the salon for the first time, so it is a good idea to prepare them beforehand by letting them know what will happen there. Offering her an such as new baby headbands or baby girl hair clips in exchange for ‘being a good girl’ can help ensure that she looks forward to her next salon visit.

    Evening Hairstyle Ideas for Little Girls

    Points to Consider

    Before choosing an evening hairstyle for a little girl, it’s important to take into consideration the amount of hair she has, whether it is thin or thick and if she is old enough (or willing) to keep any accessories like glitter bows or glitter hair clips in for the duration of the evening. When it comes to little girls who are between the ages of 3 and 5 years, it is normally best to stick with styles that are as simple as possible. This will ensure that washing and styling their hair doesn’t take longer than a few minutes at the most.

    Short or Long Bobs

    These are one of the easiest hairstyles to maintain on little girls in the 3 to 5 year age bracket, and including a few pretty accessories like a heart-embellished headband or a few velvet and glitter-covered snap clips will help keep any stray fringe or other hair firmly and comfortably in place. Another option that can help add a glamorous touch to this evening hairstyle is small snap clips that have been decorated with sequined stars. Each of these options will help keep the hair in place without it being uncomfortable or tight in any way.

    Short Pixie Cut

    In most cases, parents of little girls aged 3 to 5 are looking for styles that are relatively simple, but still cute and elegant. Opting for the short pixie cut will ensure that there are no tears when the time comes to styling and/or placing any round glitter bows velvet and glitter ribbon snappy clips in the hair to keep the fringe out of the eyes.  Even though this design is generally short all around, a cute triple heart headband can be inserted to add just the right finishing touch.

    Side Sweep of Curls

    Although many little girls in this age bracket have absolutely beautiful curls, these can be somewhat challenging to style at any time – let alone for an evening event. However, simply brushing the hair, sweeping it all to one side of the head and securing it in place with a few pretty glitter hair accessories such as tuxedo glitter bow pinch clips. These will keep the hair to the side and another clip can be used to ensure that no hair falls into the eyes.

    When trying to choose an evening hairstyle idea for a little girl between 3 and 5 years of age, it is important to remember that she will already have a few preferences of her own, which should be taken into account as well. If she doesn’t enjoy dressing up too much, it will be best to stick with styles that are simpler and that will require the use of as few hair accessories as possible.

    Our Baby Flower Crowns- why being sold out of Coral is so awesome.

    Baby Flower Crown Headbands Baby Flower Crown Headbands

    Why does being sold out make me so happy?

    We're sold out of the Coral flower Crown Headbands as of today. It's not the revenue generated from the sales that is making me utterly giddy.

    I should be a tad worried that I cannot fill demand for the flower crowns in Coral this spring and summer, shouldn't I?  We sold out of this hot style and colour before March even hit and I won't be restocking it.  You are probably scratching your head with this, as that doesn't make sense...or so it seems.  They are so popular, you sold out!! Why wouldn't you re-stock it? Make more and ride the wave, you're chiding me as my friend in business.  As my customer, your demand should be driving me to get more in stock...and NOW, right? But, I've made this mistake before. Too many times, in fact.  The times have changed so much since Baby Wisp® first started (2008) , you wouldn't believe how much faster the 'trend' cycles are. You think a bow is a bow is a bow...pink is pink and pink.  I tell you - it's not true. [caption id="attachment_1258" align="aligncenter" width="300"]Coral Baby Wisp Flower Crown Coral Baby Wisp Flower Crown[/caption] Any retailer can tell you about this problem of inventory and trend cycle.  Just go to any "end of season" sale and you will see prices that you cannot believe. You know for sure. that skirt you just bought for 99 cents, definitely cost several times that to make. But here's the thing - If you don't sell it off at the end of the season, you will never see a dime for it.  Knowing you have such a short window to get your style noticed you have to be already on to the next before you're finished with the first! flower girl hair accessoriesStyles are so fluid, so hard to nail down.  As a designer, you're gambling on the right colour, the size, shape, style, fabric and more often that not - you're either doomed or crowned queen when a 'CELEBRITY' tells the general public what's cool and what's not cool or the celebrity BABY is photographed wearing a certain style.  You can't plan for that the year before when your designs are in production.  It's such crazy concoction of the right ingredients whether your design will be loved.  And when it's loved, it's loved for like a second.  It used to be a minute or two but now it's a second!   So today, I'm celebrating the second of fame we got in our Baby Wisp Kingdom.   Our coral flower crown is loved.  We got it right! Nailed it! woohooo!!!  That's a "good day" at work when you feel your decisions were right. On that note - there are only a handful of aqua left as that will be next to sell out...so hurry before they are gone for good!
