Hi all- School pictures are next Tuesday. I'm looking for some ideas for DD9's hair. She has long, very thick, wavy hair, about halfway down her back. It's all one length, except for her bangs. She wears it in a single braid everyday after two years of a ponytail everday. She NEVER wears her hair down. It is very thick and heavy. It winds up all over her face and neck, makes her hot and sweaty and gets tangled and wild immediately. Last year for school pictures, we tried putting only the top half back with the rest down. It practically needed to be cut off when she got home. Plus, it just looked all pulled back in the photo and since they take it straight on, she just looked like a face with bangs. A friend of mine who is a photographer suggested putting her hair in a ponytail, but off center in the back. This way, it will hang over one side of her shoulder. My friend took some photos of DD like that for something this summer and it looked very cute. DD doesn't want to spend the day with a lopsided hairstyle though. Photos aren't until just before lunch, so I need an idea with some staying power too. Any ideas would be great!
