Hello Kitty Giveaway---time is up

WOW--- I have no idea what I did, but when I stopped comments and wrote time is up I deleted the whole post. I will post winner tomorrow. I am just grateful I didn't somehow delete the comments! Sorry all!!!

What a Week

Sorry---- still adjusting. Another slow week for us her at Girly Do's. Just wanted you to know we are still here. Still planning on doing new hair tutorials. Just taking a tiny little break. I was going to do a mini giveaway, but even that's proving to be a challenge for me this week. So I hope you don't mind a flash back week. This is one of my favorite hair styles we've come up with. I've had a lot of people attempting it lately and sharing there work on our facebook page. It really brightens my day when you guys share your work. So for this week check out this past hair tutorial for this hairstyle and do it yourself. Bonus to show you really care---- post your pictures on my facebook page.

Chain Braiding

So this is another old one that I did a VERY LONG TIME AGO. (click here to see original post.) But I figured it was time to make a video for this one. So we did. Beans hair is still to short to do it like we did in the original post, but it was very cute pulled back into a pretty messy bun. Check out this video and have a great week.


We had a very long (emotional) week with family issues, so hope you understand that it will be just the one post this week. But you can bounce over to Pintrest and check out all our past hairstyles. Feel free to pin a few of your favorites and to share our page with your friends. Thank you.

One Sided Braids

 I am so lucky to have such a sweet cute niece that slept over a little while ago and asked if she could be featured on Girly Do's. So this is my beautiful niece Calico Kitten. She's been featured one or two times before.

We shot a video on this hairstyle, bust sadly it will make you motion sick if we shared it. Beans wanted to shoot the video and I'm thinking we better leave that part of the process to someone else. So I am sorry there is no video, but we can still do our best to explain this hairstyle.

It really is very simple. Its just three braids done on one side. I see girls do this all the time at school, but they do corn-row braids. This I felt like was a lot softer of a look. And much more feminine.

To give it that layered look you are just doing a half cage braid. That means you are doing the French-braid but taking a hair near the part and traveling it over the hair to where you want your braid to hang. And the half come in from you are only going to add hair on one side. On the top side to be specific.
 You repeat that process for all three braids letting them hang with out real specific parting lines. I really like this look so much better with this braid than the corn-row braid. You'll have to tell me which way you like it most.

Thank you Calico Kitten! You sure are a cute girl. Come sleep over again soon.
XOXO,
Beans and Jenn

Beans Teaches--Topsytail




Beans was so excited to shoot another video for you guys. She's such a fun girl. This tutorial I hope inspires your little girls to do there own hair. Because really that is an important step in the process of growing up. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let your girls leave the house with not 100% perfect hair at least once in a while. It will do great things for your girls confidence.

I will be honest it is hard to just stand back and let Beans do her own hair sometimes because there are ends that are curved under and some that are flipped out, but I want her to find value in doing her hair. And the confidence too. There are days I want to plug in the iron and touch it up just a little bit, but I don't. I hope you can do the same.

So this brings me to my question of the week for ya. Do you let your little girl do her own hair on occasion? Or are you a hair-tator who calls all the hair shots?
