*Note from Mindy: Congratulations to Misty on being our November Hairdoer of the Month! My girls really loved this one… especially the “shout” part! I apologize for posting this late, since we had the cold and flu bugs running rampant at home while my husband was in Miami on business. Thanks for your patience! If you love the hairdo, let Misty know! Here is her introduction:

Hi! My name is Misty and I am a mom to one daughter and three sons on earth (and 1 angel girl in heaven). I LOVE to do hair and have been privileged to do my niece’s hair for proms and for weddings. I was suppose to go to cosmetology school but followed my now husband to his college! We have been married for 12 years now. I hope you enjoy!
Time Requirement: 10 to 20 minutes, depending on final desired look.
Skill Level: Easy
I start with wet hair. Start by parting your daughter’s hair down the middle. Pick up the right side and split it in to 2 pieces, then twist them together…
Now gather the hair up (in the middle) and part a strip along the bottom and leave it out…
1) A messy bun:

Some of you may recognize this hairstyle as we featured the bun style last year. However, it is too cute not to be looked at again for this very wonderful holiday! Especially since it originally posted nowhere near the 4th of July.
Tomorrow, I’m taking photos of a fun new firecracker hairdo my hubby came up with. I hope it works out! This season is perhaps one of my most favorite holiday seasons of the year, second to Christmas! Yes, I am a patriot thru and thru, but there is something truly fantastic about the colors “Red, White, and Blue“! (Rhyming not intentional…)
(These photos are from years past, so our precious little D. will not be in any of them.)
This is my personal favorite hairdo for the 4th of July, and I have used it on my girls since they had hair long enough to play with. This hairdo is very simple, cute, and we receive tons of compliments every year!
Now, the basics of this hairstyle I have featured on here before so I won’t bore you with them again (instead, it can be found in the post used on Crazy Hair Day called One CRAZY ‘Do). Please view the link and follow the steps for this fun 4th of July hairstyle. Even if your DD has short hair, you can simply use two buns on top…
Or find some cute 4th of July headbands (at Target, Walmart, or any dollar store) and throw those on top!
As for the stars on the faces, I simply purchased red, white, and blue craft paint and a package of small kitchen sponges from Wal-Mart. We then cut the sponges into different shaped stars, squirt paint on paper plates, dip the best-looking side into the paint (like you would a stamp), and then press the painted side gently on your DD’s cheek. You can even superimpose a different-colored smaller star onto one already on the cheek for a more decorative look… just make sure the first star is already dry. The painted impression left by each stamp (given the sponge texture) gives a rustic-looking star that looks truly awesome! For clean up, simply use soap with water and scrub gently with a used washcloth.
Or if your too busy to mess with the paint Target has some super cute 4th of July stickers (which I like better than the Tattoo’s) for the face and hands. Easy to get on, easy to get off!
I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July! Please promise me that you will comment back here with the number of compliments you receive.
