You'll want to up your styling game after seeing these kids rocking their crazy hair day looks.
When I sent my daughter to school in asymmetrical pigtails I thought we were totally #winning at wacky hair day. But... apparently not. Some kids are getting pretty elaborate do's for the occasion!
Check out a little girl whose mom created a work of art as the hairstyle for her wacky hair day. The totally aspirational look incorporates a root beer bottle secured with a headband, with the girl's hair made to look like a soft drink cascading into a plastic cup on the side of her head.
Feeling like a complete failure yet? If not, peruse these photos of other kids who are nailing wacky hair day. It seems the root beer idea is popular this year, even with tweens. And any plastic bottle will do; whether it's a Coke or a Pepsi. Talk about upcycling!
The look seems fairly easy to replicate; all you need to do is cut a hole in the side of the bottle, and... oh, who am I kidding? I'm not sure I could pull this off with my girls. And they probably wouldn't have the patience to sit still while I yanked their locks through the bottle. I can barely get them to brush their hair each day before school.
But if your child has a higher pain threshold and more tolerance for getting their hair done than my girls do, perhaps this look will inspire you. It's an adorable little girl whose tresses are divided into several mini-buns, with pipe cleaners made to look like antennae sticking out!
Over here at our house, we'll be sticking with the asymmetrical pigtails, or perhaps multiple headband looks. But thanks to the moms who are truly winning at wacky hair day. Thanks for making my super-high ponytail idea seem totally inadequate!
