ARGH THERE MATEY!! BBH is quite the character. She loves her pretty dress up clothes and shoes, but she is often times a supa-herooooooo!! But on the low low, she’s a pirate, arrrrgh!

After pretending to be a pirate on a consistent basis for some time, I thought ‘imma make my BBH a pirate hat’. Why? Cuz I didn’t see anything pink/girly or UNDEATHLY out there. Plus, I was still on a craft high from doing a birthday party. So, I grabbed some felt and fleece (fleece from the ever so cute blanket I did not make; HHHhhhh, where does time go?!?), some left over foam, popsicle sticks and ribbon. Off I was!… Continue reading →

Welcome to BABY BIG HAIR BLAST where we highlight “Big Hair” artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy NIkki and Baby O, and OOOOHHH what a cutie she IS!  Just look at her lil’ Big RED Hair!  You may have seen Baby O as a Curly Baby on Curly Nikki (congrats!) or in random hair postings on Facebook.  She certainly caught my eye in the sea of fros posted in honor of Afro Day on the 4th.  I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to take a bite out of this little cinnabon! YUMMY!  Mommy Nikki is “chatting down” with us today to give us the 411 on Baby O and that sweet lil’fro.   Well, let’s dig in shall we??

Came back not long ago from a short trip of fun in the sun! BBH was not feeling the waves, but she LOVED the sand. To get ready for the trip, I styled her hair in twists (my fav protective style), and did a quick length check…..

HAIRSPIRATION: A particular hairstyle that inspires you to try it yourself or create your own hairstyle(s).

We all have at least one. That OOWEE style that you can’t stop looking at. Out of hundreds of styles done by Nikki G of Beads, Braids and Beyond, this has to be my favorite. Maybe it’s the intricate pattern of the rows on the side with the contrasting cascade of twists on the other, but it ‘got’ me. I remember it like yesterday. I saved the link and would click on it every so often. Next thing I know, I started trying new things on BBH’s hair. Don’t get me wrong, there are many great styles out there and we’ll share more Hairspirations on BBH, but this one right here is special, it left a mark on our hair journey. What is your latest Hairspiration?

Are you always on the go with your BBH? Well I am, and because of it, I find myself being “off” schedule on hair washing day. Never quite washing her hair in the block of time I intended to. Maybe because I just flat out procrastinate. Don’t get me wrong, I love my lil one’s big hair and I love how she lights up when she looks in the mirror. But sometimes that pile of laundry gets on my last, the mail must be opened, or the sudden need to purge takes over me, and THEN…. I’ll do her hair, LOL!! But I’m so serious. With BBH, I know it will be at least 4 hours to wash, detangle the way I like, and style to some degree. Well, this particular washing day, I didn’t jump right in as I should have and what started as medium sized rope twists all over her head ended up as part loose and part banded twists, cuz as always, we were on the go.  Continue reading →

So, I’ve finally realized my role in the whole BBH hair washing process. I am the official hair drying daddy! Yup, that’s right, while mommy washes the BBH do, I am preparing to take her to the local park for some quality sun-baked hair drying.
