Patsy has the most beautiful, long red hair. It has the slightest bit of curl in it, but is primarily straight. For Christmas Eve, we wanted it to look special, without taking hours to comb and fix.
I gathered up a small amount from each side into a ponytail and put in an elastic band. I left it rather loose. Then, I took the tail and lifted it up and over the elastic band and pushed it down into the center and through, into a fishtail. I did this process 3 times, adding another layer of hair each time. At the bottom, I gathered it all up into yet another ponytail holder and added a hair ornament we have had for years and matched her Christmas dress perfectly. The rest of her hair hung as a ponytail down her back.
She looked lovely and special, and it stayed neat and tidy for hours! Win-win for everyone.

I’ve just started following you recently. I am sorry to read about the bad luck your husband had. I have had a rough December myself but you’ve kept your spirit up and I’m impressed. Your family sounds lovely and I admire the way you have shared it with so many young souls.
I also wanted to say that I love Patsy’s hair. I had a DIL with deep red hair and I always thought it was so beautiful. Happy New Year to you and your family.
Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful new year, as well, and things pick up for your family as well. We are looking forward to seeing what the year holds for us!
That looks simple enough even for someone that’s all thumbs like me.
Thanks, Jane. With 6 daughters, I have had to do hair a LOT!
Patsy’s beautiful red hair would fit right in with my family. I grew up with 5 cousins that all had various shades of red hair…from strawberry blond to a rich dark red like Patsy’s. It all started with my grandfather who was born with red hair despite no one else in the family having red hair at the time. Apparently our Irish heritage decided to come out in his genetics. He passed the red locks on to both his daughters.
Red hair is rather unique and very difficult to obtain from a bottle. Patsy should count herself very lucky to have such a beautiful hair colour!
I agree! Her hair is very unique and I love it! She is lucky to have that color.
