Introducing: Z Braids

January 15, 2012

Yes, that’s right, just a few days ago, I was lamenting my lack of fun hair ideas, and now (thanks to all your suggestions, and inspired by the braided letter series at Babes in Hairland), we have created a Z for Zuzu.

    very neat! I can’t wait until I can do stuff like this with my girls’ hair. They’re a year old and only have about an inch of hair. 🙂

  2. Robyn says:

    THIS is why I’m growing out my hair.
    Will you do the whole alphabet? Or very short words?

  3. Julie says:

    Hannah, the kids are always wanting me to do things to Ramona, and her hair is longer than an inch, but not long enough (or thick enough) for anything more than the ponytail on top of the head.

    Robyn! Words! Ha. The Babes in Hairland site does have a B so maybe I can do an R for Ramona someday.

    Zorro estaba aqui! This is awesome, Julie. And what perseverance on your part.

  5. Sylvie says:

    Very interesting. I didn’t realize that Zuzu’s hair was that long.

  6. Julie says:

    It’s a little embarrassing how long I thought about this, to figure it out. It helped that Zuzu was really invested in it, so she sat there very patiently, much more than usual.

    Mom, Zuzu’s hair is definitely getting pretty long. Or, I guess so, if I’m braiding letters into it.

    Thank goodness you don’t have a Quinny! That Z must have taken a awful long time.

    That is super badass… Can I use that word about a kid’s hairdo?

  9. Julie says:

    Susan, on that Babes in Hairland site (note: worst kids hair site name, ever, maybe) there’s one that’s a B, which is fairly insane.

    Lori, it’s totally badass. Not that I’d tell Zuzu that.

  10. Robyn says:

    Another thought: you’ve got four kids, so you can create four letter words. Braids and clippers, I say!

  11. Julie says:

    I could shave numbers into the boys’ heads so that people would be able to remember who was older.

  12. 😀 neato eeto beeto! I never had super cool hair like that! Just ponies and braids (the average kind).

  13. Julie says:

    Nancy, we got this idea from an “N” braid we saw, so you should get right to making yourself a new hairdo.

  14. Robyn says:

    Numbers, good. How about “WOW!” or “HEY!” You could be the interjection family. For excitement…or emotion…hallelujah.

  15. As a stay at home dad, one of the most reoccurring compliments I get is that I know how to do my daughter’s hair. However, all I do is ponytails, pigtails, barrettes, and bows. I can’t braid! I leave that to my wife. I challenged her to do this one tomorrow!!

    “Making the world a prettier place…” double sheesh, and a blech.

  17. Julie says:

    Eric, it is totally impressive to be able to do your daughter’s hair. If I hadn’t had long hair my whole life, I don’t know how I would begin doing fancy hair. My husband, who is a very smart engineer, totally could not get his mind around making ponytails. He kept wrapping the rubber band around his finger and then trying to transfer it onto the hair, somehow.

    I bet you could braid.
