Apron Roundup

Kids’ aprons are a must-have during the Holiday season, so we have gathered a variety of styles that will keep their clothes tidy while they help out in the kitchen. Anthropologie is widely known for its fabulous women’s fashions but they are also incredibly fabulous in the few children’s products they carry. I adore their aprons for myself and my daughter is beyond thrilled when she can have a matching apron to mom!
We have searched high and low to find you the best aprons out there, not just from Anthropologie. Pottery Barn Kids is a great place to find darling, frilly aprons, usually in seasonal styles. Ikea and Crate and Barrel’s children’s site, The Land of Nod,  have some great options. Lastly, if you are feeling crafty, we included a DIY option from Martha Stewart, that older girls could do as a project with a little help from a parent.

Little chefs can keep their clothes tidy and cook in style with these easy-to-make aprons.

Attach designs made of washable felt and rickrack to kid-size canvas aprons with fabric glue. An ornament doubles as a pocket (glue bottom and sides), the perfect place to stash a cookie for on-the-job nibbling.
Amazon is a great source for buying plain white canvas aprons for this project, costing under $4.

Hair Tutorial: Classic Wave Hairstyle For Girls

Hairstyle-for-girl-alice-band1

This is a special occasion style that anyone can achieve. It will suit nearly any wedding theme and leaves room for accessories such as flowers and headbands. Our celebrity stylist Kota dressed this look two ways to create different looks for classic and romantic weddings Read this entry to see how you can create this hairstyle for girls at home.

Step one:

Brush hair out to match natural part, our mini-model Tinkerbell’s hair naturally falls into a side part. For this look we are trying to create a more defined curl, so use a smaller barrel and use smaller sections than you would for our Romantic Braid look. Spray each section lightly with hairspray before applying the tong. Hold each curl in the tong for about 10 seconds, don’t leave it too long you don’t want to burn the hair.
Step two:
For this style you don’t want to lift the hair at all, so leave the roots flat. This means leaving 2-3 inches at the root of the hair out of the tong. Flatten out any bumps left from pony tails with a cool blow dry and a barrel brush before you start working on that section of hair. 
Step Three: When you have completed the curls rub hairspray onto your hands and pull your fingers through the curls pulling hand down and away from the head. Finish the top with hairspray and use a soft bristle brush to smooth the hair behind the ears.

Accessorizing this look
This is the perfect style to finish with a sweet Alice band.
Flowers from the florist can be requested with a wire or clip fastening attached. Remove outer petals to make larger blooms more suitable for little faces. We just used bobby pins for to create this improvised floral look.
For a half-up floral style
Pull a section free from either side of the face, twist and gather the two sections and the back and pin low on the head, pin so as to maintain the shape of the twist. Cut the rose a short stem and slot into the back of the twist sliding it in on an angle, push it low so it nestles inside the hair.
