Elaborate Hair

As Sparkle Jane has grown into a young woman and learned to take care of her hair, we have allowed it to grow out from a bob to well past her shoulders.  While it is quite fine-textured, it is very thick and naturally sun-streaked.  There are certainly worse problems for a girl to have.

Sunday she spoke (delivering a sermon) in our general church meeting, known as Sacrament Meeting.  She shared her thoughts  on the importance of the covenant of sacrament/communion.


The occasion called for, or at least was a good excuse for, elaborate hair.  This took about 10 or 15 minutes, but it is a pretty good idea that would be even more fun with more time spent.  The big challenge with elaborate hair is making it structurally sound so it will hold up to the rigors of the day.  These pictures were taken in the afternoon, so it did fairly well.


What fun it is to have a doll of my very own to play  with!

  1. Oh, baby fine hair has its problems, but also its good points. That looks very pretty. Good topic. Wish I’d been there to hear her talk. =)

  2. beautiful!!! ‘dolls’ are fun to play with…it is fun this week watching my two ‘dolls’ —–daughter and granddaughter doing each other’s hair!!

  3. I want to give props to Jane for her public speaking ability-many intelligent women find their voices silent from fear of this event. You go girl and keep it up!! Truth time-as the mother of now grown sons I admit I’m envious!! And wouldn’t you know it-the grand daughter loves hers short and sweet. In the interest of full disclosure I must admit to being hair-challenged but I’m a whiz at nail polish! Ah,yet another milestone to strive for…..

  4. Reblogged this on Sparkle Jane and commented:
    My mom does amazing things with my hair. How she gets it to do things like is beyond me, I cant get it to do much more than lay straight or be in a low ponytail. She always has a new idea for every event.
    I was worried about speaking, but it went really well. I think that having a great hairstyle definitely helped my confidence.
    Thanks Mom!

  5. So pretty! Since us vintage-clothing-loving girls need to stick together…I discovered a new shop- modcloth.com. Warning: the stuff is expensive, but you and Sparkle Jane could find a lot of inspiration!

  6. So pretty. I always tease my daughter (19 yrs now) that she’s the Barbie Head toy I never had as a girl! Remember those toys? They were just heads to practice hair styles.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
