Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Michelle and her precious lil’ gem Ava Grace. O_O!!!!!!!! Oh for GRACE!! Lawd she BEAUTIFUL!!! I canNOT w/this pretty pretty, HHHHHHhhhhhhhh. We were fortunate to “chat down” with Mommy and get dealio on that there sweet Baby Big Hair. EEEK! Let’s get to it, shall we??
BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling Ava Grace’s hair and how do you over come them?
We have a hard time thinking of new styles, we usually leave it wild and free! 🙂 [BBH: Well alright!] She does love braids and ponytails. I have not mastered putting beads in her hair, although she wants to try that! She takes ballet and it’s right after school, it’s a huge challenge to try to get ALL THAT HAIR into a bun!! [BBH: SAY THAT!!!] When it’s wet, I comb in out, braid it and then give her a bun, but if it’s dry..forget about it..it’s not happening. [*queues “THE WIZ”* You can’t wiiiiiiin chiiiiiile…, LOL!]
BBH: How do you entertain Ava Grace when styling her hair?
Ava Grace usually likes to face the mirror while I am doing her hair and she has to direct me..haha..she pretty much entertains herself ( and me too..) Sometimes she will look through my makeup bag and talk about what she’s going to use when she’s old enough!! <3 [BBH: Aweee ]
BBH: What are your fave products these days?
My favorite product right now is Moroccan Oil, it has been a miracle in a bottle for us..liquid gold!! [BBH: That is making a come up. Must bump up on my list!!] We also love Silken Child products. 🙂 [BBH: What da huh? Never in my life…. *googles* Ohhhhhhh. Interesting…]
Ur too MUCH!!
BBH: How does Ava Grace feel about her hair??
Ava Grace loves her hair. [BBH: YEY!] She loves to have it straightened, but I’m a leary of using heat on it, so we have only done it twice. Once was by her beloved hair stylist Miss Bee. [BBH: Feel ya there, we’ve yet to try it. Shout out to MISS BEE, Go’Head Baby!]
ACK!! GIMME DAT BABY! AND DAT OUTFIT!! Owee! TOO CUTE…
BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fave “quick” styles.
For the most part, the bigger the better [BBH: OWEEEE! You’re talkin my language!!], I love nothing more than just wild, free curls. [BBH: What’s your momma’s name, are we sisters?!?! LOL!] I only try to give her a little style here and there for her mainly, but if it were up to me..her curls would fly to the sky:) she loves high ponytails, and she also loves braids. I love two low ponytails 🙂
SERIOUSLY?!?! *points to purse* GET IN!!!
BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or hair experiences?
I have learned so much in the past year!! Under our sink looked like a beauty supply store as I was always searching for the perfect product. It used to take me well over an hour to get through her curls, now, we are finished in about 10 minutes, it’s made our lives so much easier! Her teacher shared something funny with me, Each day when I went in to pick her up from preschool, she would be sitting in a different spot, I asked if she was behaving herself and her teacher looked at me with a puzzled look and said ” of course, why do you ask?” I explained that I was concerned that she seemed to always be moved to a new spot and she said ” well, that is because none of the kids can keep their hands out of her hair, we are trying to give her some relief” She said the kids weren’t paying attention because they were too interested in her hair. Funny stuff!
HAHA! That’s a Baby Big Hair for ya! All comes w/the territory:) Thanks Mommy Michelle and Ava Grace for sharing!! ACK! That baby has such a DOLLFACE!! Just as pretty as she wants to be! And Mommy Michelle done shed her “product junkie” tendencies and keeps it simple lawd! More time for that sweet BBH…. THANKA YA! *does lap round computer* That’s what’s its all about, learning the dance of that BIG HAIR and fully embracing it. I.LOVE.IT. Mommy Michelle and Ava Grace…
