This summer we attended a wedding and while my six-year-old daughter was not the flower girl, it was the perfect occasion to let her have fun dressing up for real. I told her she was in charge and she took me seriously...when she found her "dream dress" she sighed dramatically and got all dewy-eyed. Of course we had to visit our local Hair Cuttery hair salon to get a hair style for the wedding that would be as fabulous as her dress.
We first went to Claire's (they have great affordable accessories for occasions like this) and she selected a headband. Several months ago when we got our regular haircuts she elected to have the Stylist cut five inches so we decided to leave it down. We asked the Stylist about hair for special occasions for children and she suggested curls.
We were both very happy with the result - it was sweet and my daughter felt special
