Oh, how we LOVE crazy hair day around here! I think I get more excited than my kids do! I love seeing their faces when their hair is done. They get so excited to show their friends, and frankly, so do I! Winking smile

Every year, during Red Ribbon week, we have a crazy hair day to show school spirit. This year we decided to go for a spooky look for Max since it’s so close to Halloween.


We had a few problems being creative with his hair because it’s so short right now. We knew these spider webs would stick because let’s face it, you can never get them off of you when you want to!

I spiked his hair with gel, let it dry, used black hair spray, and then covered his head in webs and spiders. Super easy, and he loved it.

Gracie’s hair took a little more effort. She wanted to be a beautiful rainbow unicorn. Which has pretty much been her theme for her entire life?


Her last 2 birthday parties have included a rainbow unicorn. She always likes to look beautiful, nothing scary or creepy for this girl.

It was a busy morning so I didn’t take pictures of the process, but I can explain. I made the horn out of cardstock.


I simply rolled the paper into a cone and taped the sides, but I left the top of the horn open a little, so I could slip bobby pins into it to secure the hair. I ratted the hair in the front and on the sides, and then wrapped it around the cone 4 times, using the front section first, the sides, and then the back until it was as covered as I could get it.


I secured the cone with more bobby pins around the base and the top. I hair sprayed it like crazy!
Then I made three ponytails down the center of her head and curled them.


Last, we went outside and used colored hair spray to make it “rainbowish,” as Gracie would say!

She LOVED it, and kept posing for us! It really wasn’t hard at all! I used the bow in the front the conceal a part that wasn’t so cute. You gotta love big bows!!

If this picture doesn’t show how excited she was, I don’t know what would.
