This blog is designed to teach how to style hair, from beginner's basics to experienced styling tricks. I'm no professional, but I've been doing hair for a long time. I started with Barbies, My Little Ponies, Kimberly, American Girl dolls, of course my own hair, and now I have my own real live doll. She is 6. For this blog, I will call her Belle (French for beautiful). I love to put a different style in her hair every day. It's a creative outlet that I crave. My daughter likes having special hairdos and often puts in a request, though her favorite is the ponytail when she is anxious to go play.
