When it comes to head lice, nothing is fool proof. But, there
are precautions you can take to help avoid them! The harder it is
for them to grasp and hang on to the hair shaft, the harder it is
for them to attach their eggs (nits). Therefore, if hair is tightly
pulled back, it makes a louse's job that much harder!
Try the Tuck & Roll, the Bow Bun, the Double Bun, or the
Crown! Have fun and get creative, see what you can come up
The Tuck & Roll:
This style is great for any morning, but especially when you are
low on time. Pick out your favorite headband and while the hair is
down place the band on top of your hair but where you want it to
sit. Taking one inch sections tuck the hair up into the headband.
Continue until all hair has been tucked! Pin any hair in place
as needed. A great way to show off a fun headband!
The Bow Bun:
Braids and bows, is there anything little girls love more? This
simple do takes no time to assemble! Simply part the hair down the
center, french braid the left side, then secure at the nape of the
neck with a hair tie. Repeat the same process with the right side.
Tie a bow with the remaining hair on both sides, leaving a
thin piece to wrap around the center of the bow. Secure loose ends
with bobby pins. Ta-da!
The Double Bun:
Such a fun twist on a classic! Parting the hair down the
center secure the hair into two high ponytails. Twist one tail
and wrap around the hair tie and secure with bobby pins. Repeat on
the other side and that's it!
This style is a little more on the trickier side, but oh so
cute! Start behind the ear, and dutch braid along the hairline and
nape of the neck. Continue braiding until you meet the beginning of
the braid. Braid the remaining of the hair in a normal braid. Pin
the tail of the braid along the rest of the crown to create a
continuous braid. Now you have a style fit for a queen!
