Crazy Hair Day 2014

Crazy Hair Day snuck up on us this year. I forgot about it until Sunday night and went to bed feeling a little bit of pressure. Lucy was counting on something amazing, and I'm really not that great with hair. Steve woke up at 5:30 am on Monday morning and went to the store to look for ping pong balls. He came back with ping pong balls, styrofoam balls, and even some styrofoam cones. Lucy wanted to be a unicorn. . . but instead we went with this ball creation: 


The first attempt started with a high pony tail right next to the head and then the four balls (using a total of five hair elastics), but it fell back and wouldn't stay up. So then we put the first ball under the hair next to the head and did the first pony tail holder on top of the ball, and then it stood up.


Mostly. . . sometimes it curved forward: 


But it was fairly sturdy. (And surprisingly easy. . . way easier than Lucy's regular crazy hairdo, made famous by ViralNova.)

 

Lucy loves Crazy Hair Day. . . can you tell?


"It's almost as good as Halloween!" she said. 


Adam requested a spike and Rachel's hair is sprayed white.

Wow, can you do one as her classic bottle updo? I'm curious as to how tall it is now! :)
