Throw Back Thursday: Crazy Hair Day Take 2

Here are a few more crazy do’s we have done in the past before I post the latest crazy do’s.


Here are some more crazy dos that we have done for crazy hair day!

Z was not liking any of my ideas on this crazy hair day. There we were, last minute and no ideas. In steps N, the big brother with all the big ideas. This is my interpretation of what he suggested!


I parted her hair crazy and made four ponytails around her head. I used unfolded paper clips to make the ponytails stick out. Here’s the trick, don’t unbend the last end. Use that little loop to go through the middle of the ponytail and straighten it out. The long part of the paper clip should be in the middle of the ponytail! The little end should be on the outside of the ponytail. Bend the small piece in so it won’t hurt anyone.


I braided the hair around the paper clip wire and secured it with an elastic.


From there I could bend the hair anyway I wanted!

AB wanted a Mohawk. But not a Mohawk like everyone else did!


So we did a pony hawk!


B and K had kinda short hair. For B’s I made two small pigtails in the front. Did the same thing with the paperclips. Instead of braiding the hair I put a lot of colorful elastics to reinforce the ponytail.


K’s I started like Fancy Ponytails and then finished like B’s and all the colorful elastics.

Little A is never one to be left out. Even though she didn’t go to school she still needed crazy hair!


Isn’t that a nasty black eye. It still hurts me! Anyway, A’s hair was just two ponytails with the paper clip through them and colorful elastics. I bent hers so she wouldn’t poke or  hit anyone with them, but straight out it would be cute Pippi Longstocking!

    How fun is that!?!? I’m going to have to tell my little sister about the paper clips. I’ve heard of doing a hanger to get crazy ponytails, but paper clips sound way more comfortable!

    Thanks for linking up to Friday Brag Fest!

    Can you describe how you put the paper clip in the ponytails to make them stand up so straight? I just tried it on my daughter’s hair and they flopped right over!
