DIY Braided Hair Clip Holder

032

My little girl was born with very little hair. She, like her father had a receded hair line. (Sorry Honey!) There was no hair in the front, but there was quite a bit in the back. As time went on, the back of her hair continued to grow, yet the front stayed hairless. She started to take on a sort of baby mullet. I dressed her in pink as much as possible to avoid the “Isn’t he cute.” “Thank you, SHE is cute, isn’t she?”

So, when Mai was finally able to pull her hair back into pigtails, mommy was elated.

I bought hair clips & barrettes galore. Every time we left the house, I had to throw a pretty clip in her hair. The problem is I had no where to put all of these little hair pretties and they ended up all over the house and lost.
