Daddy Do's: 5-in-1 Simple Braids

June 15, 2010

A year ago, I started a series of hairstyles here that were so simple even a daddy could do them. We received quite a bit of feedback from moms that they loved the idea of “Daddy Do’s”! I have also received quite a few emails from single fathers, or stay-at-home dads, who appreciate this website and its simple video instructions. Those men are my heroes, so when I posted some of their emails… many of you jumped in and gave them some positive comment love! As a result, I decided to post more videos in this series.

5-in-1 Simple Braids

Here is a very simple hairstyle that uses two simple braids. For dads, this hairdo can be accesorized any number of different ways, but I highlight five easy ones here.  This means that you can make 5 days of hairdo’s out of just one easy style!  So, girls, grab your hubbies and sit them down in front of this video for some daddy inspiration!  This will be something that your daughters will remember forever!

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, two elastic bands, headband, ribbon, do rag, hat.

Time Requirement:  5 minutes (for mom), 5-10 minutes (for dad)

Skill Level:  Easy


Happy Hairdoing!

Front French Braids into Side Ponies

February 08, 2010

**Note from Mindy:  Get ready for an amazing hairstyle from a fantastic single dad!  Lance is the perfect “Little Girl’s” Daddy, and has a cute little girl at that!  Congratulations to Lance for being our February’s Hairdoer of the Month!  Here is Lance’s hairdo and a quick bio…

* ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

My name is Lance, and I am a single working dad. My adventure began when I moved to Singapore six and a half years ago to teach at an American school there. Living in S.E. Asia provided me many opportunities to travel all over that part of the world–Cambodia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, Vietnam, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia. I was amazed at the beauty of these places, but at the same time, I was heartbroken at the great number of orphaned children I encountered. Precious little ones in need of loving homes.

After spending a great deal of time in prayer, I began the process of adoption. Not an easy task being a single dad, but nonetheless a burden that God had placed on my heart. I was quite surprised when the adoption officials in Vietnam sent me a referral of a six-month-old baby girl! But I took one look at that picture, and she completely stole my heart. I completed all the final paperwork, and traveled to Vietnam to bring my daughter home when she was nine months old.

Now my little one is a happy, chatty, and precocious three and a half year old—my, how time flies! After six years in Singapore, I felt it was time to move on. I do yearly mission work in Central America and have a heart for that part of the world, so we are currently living in Guatemala, where I teach at an international school and where my daughter and I are active in a local church. Although we are not the “traditional” family, we are just as happy as can be, and I know that my daughter and I have both been blessed through the miracle and gift of adoption.

Front French Braids into Side Ponies

Items Needed:  Brush, comb, 2 small rubber bands, 2 large ponytail holders.

Time Requirement:  About 15 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:  I like to start by wetting my daughter’s hair. Then part the hair equally down the middle…

Next section off a bit of hair just in front of the ear. Repeat this step on the opposite side…
Now have your daughter hold each of these front sections while you brush the remaining hair back into a ponytail (or clip) to keep it out of the way…
French braid each front section all the way down into regular braids…
Here’s what your daughter’s hair should look like from the front after this step– with french braids on both sides…
Now have your daughter hold the braids up out of the way and let down the hair in the back…
Part the back section equally down the middle and pull each of these sections, along with the braid on that side, into a side ponytail. Spray with a bit of hairspray for flyaway hairs and you’re good to go!
See back, side, and front views for finished hairdo…

Subtle Twist Back | Daddy Do

March 20, 2009

This hairdo is as easy as they come. What a great hairstyle for those mornings you have 3-5 minutes to be out the door.

This one isn’t anything original, but is a great one to have in your repertoire.

Hairstyles for Girls

Items Needed: Brush, comb, hairspray, 1 rubber band, and accessories.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes.

Skill Level: Easy

Start by brushing the hair. My dd had her hair braided the day before so her hair was pretty wavy, but straight or super curly hair would work too.

Subtle Twistback #1

Starting right next to and slightly behind the ear, begin to twist it back…

Subtle Twistback #2

When you get the whole strand of hair twisted, have your dd hold it, then repeat on the other side. Combine ends together on the back of head… and where they meet, add a rubber band to secure…

Subtle Twistback #3

Add a ribbon or flower for bling. Easy and fast.

Subtle Twistback #4Subtle Twistback #5Subtle Twistback #6

Happy Hairdoing!
