It started at French class. Emmanuelle had rainbows in her hair and Elizabeth wanted some too. It looked easy enough. Elizabeth sat still! She loved the results. Then Elizabeth started demanding more and more elaborate hairdos. We may have been slightly willing to indulge.


She wanted a necklace on her head, so I learned to french braid all around her head. I saw a picture of a heart on Pinterest and tried to replicate it. Then Janice got interested. She'd seen a few interesting things on youtube. Like how to curl hair without a curling iron using the magic of socks! Or how to make a pancake braid. Flowers! Waterfalls! English braids!


Be afraid... Be very very afraid...

Wow, wow, WOW!! That French Braid around the head is magnificent. I can't even do a NORMAL French Braid! I really want to be more creative with hair (especially since both of ours is so long) but I stink at it. Perhaps you could come give me lessons?

Impressive!!- What goes around comes around!--you need to look up some old photos of Grandma (Blanche) Henderson to see braided hair a la the 1940's
