One of the fun pluses of having a daughter is that you get to delight the little darlings by making them feel beautiful with things like cute hair accessories. This can be understandably intimidating to moms who aren't particularly girly, or on the flip side, is occasionally unwelcome by a carefree little girl, but for the most part, little girls love getting fancy.
Fortunately, cute hair accessories are easy to be found. And as your daughter would most likely agree, bigger is currently better. Even on a bald baby girl, an elastic headband topped with a gigantic flower is very popular. And sure to draw oohs and aahs wherever you go. As her hair actually comes in, ponytails and pigtails get their chance to steal the day, also adorned with large flowers such as different colored daisies, or the occasional bow. The flowers may look like fake flowers you'd find at a craft store, ribbon flowers, sewn fabric-twisted flowers, flat flowers made of felt, or even knitted blossoms. If there's something sparkly or jewel-like in the center, all the better for the little princess.
But flowers are not the only option. Classic ribbon bows are also to be found just about anywhere you look. The can come small and dainty, or bold and big. You could buy or make them pre-tied and glued onto a barrett, or keep ribbon on hand and tie them over the ponytail holder. For a little variation, thin curled ribbon can be made into puffs or pom-poms, possibly even with beads to add to the pizzazz.
As mentioned already, these types of accessories can be found in many locations, such as Target or local children's specialty stores.
