Hair we go again! I figured that you may have heard enough about my hair and the products that I’m using on them so I decided to use Elle as a model and the inspiration for this post. As mother to a daughter with a good amount of hair, caring for hers and making sure that she LOVES her hair is important in my book. Little girls need to love what they see in the mirror and as her mama, I will do all that I can to include her in healthy hair care practices and styling.
And I know what you’re thinking. “Is this even necessary? I mean…she’s barely 3 years old!” Um, yes. It is very necessary because this kid sees me doing my hair and naturally, she’s interested. With the changing of the seasons, I’ve been giving a lot more thought into products and styling that will be better suited for the cooler weather. It’s Florida, y’all so no, we won’t be dealing with any snow and frozen flurries but less beach and pool time means we need to switch up the products. There will be a tiny bit of chill in the hair so moisturized curls, more protective styles and quick and easy do’s are in the forecast.
Truthfully, I’m not big on glaring at celebrities to draw inspiration from when it comes to hair do’s because their realities (you know, fabulous stylists who can come to their homes and give them glamorous hair do’s) are not my reality but when it comes to celebrity kids, well…that’s a bit easier. I’m no hair stylist, but surely I can mimic a style that I see on a kiddo on my daughter. Right? Right! Like these afro puffs that Blue Ivy Carter rocks…
Elle and I call them “Minnie Mouse buns” but whatever…afro puffs were cute when I was a kid and they are even more adorable now.
We rock this look on lazy weeks when mama doesn’t have much energy for major styling. Camille Rose Natural’s Curl Love Moisture Milk is fabulous for tension-free afro puffs because all we have to do is gently mist her hair with water, slather on the Moisture Milk, style and go. This is my girl’s most requested style and I’m so okay with that because it literally takes me only 5 minutes to do. *Little known fact: Elle and Blue Ivy share the same birthday.
Our next favorite celebrity-inspired style comes from the adorable Yara Shahidi. Yara is 15 now but I remember when she was a budding actress and how cute she was in her two strand twists. Elle’s hair texture looks a little like Yara’s and I found Camille Rose’s Curlaide Moisture Butter wonderful for installing her two strand twists.
Intended to help nourish dry and frizzy hair, I love how this works on my babe’s hair. It makes twisting easier and somehow, her hair tends to last a lot longer when I use this. This is my favorite protective style for her. She can rock this look for almost 2 weeks.
Skai Jackson gives us our third favorite style and this is one that we don’t rock regularly because Elle is a toddler and uh, she has no desire in letting her curly twist out get in the way of…being a toddler. But how precious is her twist out?
Skai’s hair is thicker and longer than Elle’s but I don’t think anything looks cuter on a little girl than when her hair is free to do its own thing. The best thing about all of these styles? I love that they are big kid-friendly, too! Yes, I drew inspiration from tweens to recreate styles for a toddler, but I would totally rock these looks on myself, the afros puffs included!
Do you find yourself inspired by any celebrities? I would love to know whose looks you’ve been eyeing this season…
