2010 School Photo

My baby took her school photos in August and we just got them back this past Thursday! I love the photo, but her hair, JEEZ! I straightened it out and candy curled it thinking that they were going to take photos first thing that morning, but they waited until AFTER lunch, so her hair poofed up and frizzed out, lol! Crazy!

The 'Princess Fairy' Halloween Hairystyle!

This morning, the Princess and I were up bright and early to get her Halloween Hairstyle on the road! I took out the remainder of her braids (which was like 3 braids), then washed her hair with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner! After towel drying it, I parted it in sections and sprayed each with Soft & Beautiful Just For Me! 2-In-1 Conditioning Detangler! Via photos, I'll explain how I did her hair!

HAIRSTYLE NAME: Three Twists Strand Mohawk W/ Side TST Ponytails
PRODUCTS USED: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner, BB Oil Moisturizer, Kids Organics Gro Strong Growth Stimulating Therapy, & Soft & Beautiful Just For Me! 2-In-1 Conditioning Detangler

I started off by parting the hair two ways, which I call a T, and wrapped each section in bands. I got my products and poured a little of HEHH Conditioner and BB Oil Moisturizer on a napkin and mixed it together. I used the conditioner so her hair could feel lightweight and I used the moisturizer so it can have shine!

I began unbanding the right ponytail and braiding the braids going to the left and stopping at the middle. I then unbanded the left ponytail and matched the parts braiding those braids going to the right and stopping at the middle. To possibly save time, after I braided each braid, I put them in a three strand twist. I put the products on the braid before braiding them and after twisting, I put a little of the Kids Organics Gro Strong Stimulating Therapy on the strand to reduce frizziness.

This is the back view of the mohawk with three strand twists. The back by itself took at least an hour and a half. Now for your child it might not take that long, because as I've said in other posts, you have to consider the LENGTH of my child's hair!

As far as the front, I part the top section and half and did one half in loose three strand twists and the other half braided to the side!

This was the end result! I honestly don't like the front so probably tomorrow I will braided it into a side ponytail. I LOVE the back though!!

BB Guest Blogger : Becca & Kiairah

Beautiful Biracial is glad to present to you our second guest blogger! Thanks in advance to Ms. Becca for sending in the form and sharing information with us about her and her daughter!

Tell us a little about yourself...
I'm Becca single mama to 7 year old Kiairah AKA Lil' Bit!

Are you experienced in haircare for children or a beginner?
I wouldn't say I'm experienced, I feel like I still have a lot to learn!

Tell us about your daughter...
Kiairah is an avid dancer, she CLAIMS she is not a "girly girl" but I know better.

Can you provide a photo for us?

Is she biracial? If so, what is she mixed with?
She's half Jamaican & half caucasian

What is her personal style?
She loves to look "cool" she's into anything bright coloured & LOVES skulls.

How does she feel about her hair?
We have been working VERY VERY hard to get her to love her hair, for the most part she does, but occasionally she will say she'd rather have straight hair.

What is her favorite hairstyle?
Her back to school mohawk!
 Do you share with her the importance of hair care?
Of course! She helps me wash & condition her hair, she likes to try & twist her own hair too!

What kind of products do you use on her hair?
We use Herbal Essence Hello Hydration shampoo & conditioner and we use Bee Mine moisturizers!

Have you ever used any chemicals in her hair?
UNFORTUNATELY, I have put a texturizer in her hair... I had no idea what I was doing & a friends parent had me convinced that this was the best thing for her hair, DEF NOT!!

How did you learn to do hair and who was or is your inspiration?
Actually I taught myself to braid (thank you YouTube). I got tired of taking her to the salon & the ladies were either rude about it (saying they would only braid her hair if she didn't cry) OR goin to the salon & having her throw a fit because she didn't want anyone else to touch her hair!

Are there any tips, tricks, or suggestions you'd like to share with other moms or guardians out there?
Keep trying! My first braids were HORRIBLE, but I just kept at it & I've come such a long way now! Just remember to keep the hair moisturized!!

Fall Festival 2010

Today was the Fall Festival and DRUG FREE WEEK at my daughter's school, reason for all the activities. At the FF, they had all kinds of activities going on outside in the school yard! I went and took tons of pictures like a proud mother and helped my daughter and her two best friends with all the fun! They shaved pumpkins, got tattoos, played toss with the little bean bags, went fishing, went on hayrides, 'spray painted,' went through a maze, and even had a sack race! The best part I liked was even though some things were a competition, they all got prizes and still were winners! What a way to boost children's self-esteem! Here are some photos from the FF!

Shaving pumpkins.
Pumpkin Tattoo.
Spray painting!
Gone fishing!
Sack Race!
Digging for 'gold'!
All that aside, this weekend is going to be a very busy weekend as far as hair & Halloween are concerned! As you see, I have to remove her braids, wash, detangle, and style it! I have a hairstyle in MIND, HOPEFULLY I can execute it! For Halloween, she's going to be a Princess Fairy! I can't wait for the free candy!

Product Organizing

The other day I made a mental note to organize my daughter's hair products/accessories/etc and find somewhere to put them so they won't be all jumbled together! I'm still surprised that I haven't done this before being that I'm so big on organization. This post is focused on how you can organize your products (accessories/shampoos/moisturizers/brushes/combs), having everything in one space and in different compartments. Below are before and after photos and a list of suggestions, dos, and don'ts!

Earlier and the middle part of this year, I was back and forth living between here (Georgia) and Florida that I really didn't have time to organize anything! I just used to throw all her hair accessories, combs, and brushes in one container, her products and whatever else in a plastic bag and go on my merry way. Back then, I thought I was doing myself a big favor by at least keeping everything together, but I was sadly mistaken! You see, when you throw everything in one container and it moves around a lot it can create a headache..don't believe me? Look...

Hairbows, non-metal bands, hair barrettes and whatever else are all tangled together. You can either do one of three things, detangle that mess, leave it like it is, or THROW IT AWAY! I, myself, am a very impatient person, so detangling was out of the question. I figured I'd just throw it away and buy new ones, no biggie. Although these products are inexpensive, going through this every other month, it will eventually add up. You really don't want to see your money go to waste...literally!

Well, today, I finally decided to do something about it! I went to Wal-Mart and picked up an extra plastic storage container and a shower caddy. I already had a 3 Set Plastic Container at home that was just around for decoration that I figured I would put to use!

Shower Caddy: $2.00 3 Set Storage Bin: $10 Plastic Storage Bin: $2.47
The two separate plastic storage containers, I put barrettes and ouchless bands in one and her hairbows in the other! Being that I won't be moving around as much with these, I figured they won't get in a tangled mess. If this method doesn't work, then be on the lookout for another post, lol. The reason for the separation of barrettes, there are all kinds of colors, shapes of barrettes that they get lost in the melee of the hairbows and by the time I try to find what I'm looking for, I'm frustrated! Hopefully, this will keep my frustration level at a one.

In the 3 set plastic storage bin, in the first drawer, I put in my hair dryer, combs and brushes! Everytime I'm in dire need of a brush, I can never find it, here, it shouldn't grow legs and hop out of the bin! The second container contains all of her hair products such as shampoos, moisturizers, detangler spray, etc. Although I would prefer if they stood upright, I'm glad that they're in a separate drawer by themselves. In the last container, I put all of her flower hair accessories, headbands, beads, and rubberband packs.

If you use beads, then you all know that beads are small and can be lost very easily or drop and hard to find and if you leave them in the box they came in, hard to contain. The idea to put them in a plastic ziplock bag seemed GENIOUS to me. My sister gave me the idea, because I personally kept putting them in the box they came in or the plastic storage container and I was always losing them. I really like this idea though.

The shower caddy wasn't initially apart of my storage organizing idea, but when I went to Wal-mart today, I saw it was on sale for $2 and I just had to have it! As I was about to checkout, I thought maybe I don't need this and I just want it because it's so cheap, but then I thought, maybe I can use this! Usually, when I'm about to do my daughter's hair, I have a bunch of products spread across the couch (even if I don't use them) and sometimes end of up making a few trips because I forgot something or making a mess. With the shower caddy, I can get all I need, safely store it in one of the compartments, and don't have to worry about extra trips or a mess! I haven't even tried it out yet, but I'm loving the idea of it already!

  • Store 'like products' together.
  • Try putting various things in separate containers. You really do want to avoid a mess!
  • If hairbows, barrettes, etc isn't open, I suggest not opening them unless you are about to use them. It cut downs on the chances of it getting tangled or lost.
  • Keep bottle tops/lids tightly shut and out of reach of children...but I'm sure you know that.

Hat Day!

Today is Hat Day at my daughter's school & I had to figure out a way QUICK to find a way to do her hair so she could wear her hat to school. I decided to just braid it in two layer braids! The back is going straight down and the front part has a slant to it. Excuse the 'messiness' of was really my first time doing slants and as we ALL KNOW, I can't part for nothing! Here are the photos!

2 Layered Braids
 I think for my first time I did a pretty good job, but since I was in a rush and Ms. Thang kept falling asleep, that was the result. It's all good because it is HAT DAY and no one will see it, lol. This morning, she wanted it to 'hang', so I thinking about putting it in a ponytail and taking the ends loose, but I really didn't have time for that, so I settled for putting white barrettes on the end which seemed to do the trick.

If by chance you don't have one, feel free to ask in my contact form! Please keep questions friendly and website/family related! If not, I'll have to ban you from my site.

QUESTION: Hey,On This Page You Said You Have To Kids. But All I See Is Your Little Girl..I Dont See A Picture Of Him...It Would Be Nice If You Have His Picture And Description Like Your Daughter's.!!
ANSWER: To be quite honest, I never even thought about doing that especially since this diary/weblog is focused around her. Thanks for the input, I'll surely see that it's done. :)

Meet Spiderman!

As we all know, this weblog is feautured around my daughter and her hair, but this post, I had to dedicate to my main man, 'Spiderman.'  About the name, lol, I asked him what he wanted his nickname to be and that's what he said, so it is what it is! When my son was born, he was born with a head full of hair, courtesy of his father, lol, and up until he was 2 years old, his hair was past his shoulders. I would wash his hair and moisturize it and put it in a ponytail. With all the things that I could do now, I kinda miss his hair! I just wanted to share with you guys, my son!

9 Months
I can't really remember how old he was in that last photo, but I do know his hair was SLICKED BACK! That was a daily hairstyle for him! The moisturizer I used gave it shine though!! I asked him a couple of days ago did he miss his hair and he said, 'NO!' He was NOT the one to be sitting around for braids. He does however sit still for a haircut and the two barbers I took him to were very impressed because they said a boy his age does NOT sit still. Sighs, I love my lil man!

Saving A Few Bucks!

I just wanted to share with you guys real quick that using off  name brand products could be just as good as the name brand products. Like for instance, I bought black Goody's Ouchless Bands from Wal-Mart and they were $3.50 with I believe to be 5 bonus multicolored bands that came with it. I thought, hmm, that's a good price and got it. But then, I went to Dollar General and saw Belle's Ouchless Bands and they were only $1.00. Mind you, only 28 comes in a pack with 5 small bonus bands, BUT if you were to get 3 packs, you'd get a bit more bands PLUS it would still come out cheaper. I've used these bands before and they work like a charm. I love them.

I especially wanted to share the bands and the price because I check my stats of the site daily and I noticed that my 'Banding Waves Part I & II' gets viewed a lot, so maybe you mothers were looking to do this style but didn't want to spend near $4.00 on BANDS! I hope this helps!

Next is the purple spray bottle you see next to the bands. I saw a water spray bottle at the hair store and it was $1.49, I thought that was cheap myself because for some reason I expected it to be a little bit more..especially with it being in a hair store. The same day that I was going to get it, I happened to be in Wal-Mart and came across their water spray bottles and they were only $0.99! They not only come in purple, but other colors as well! They're located in the 'travel size' section in Health & Beauty!

Now, I wouldn't mind spending the money if I had too, but if I could get them from somewhere else and CHEAPER, then why the hell not? I figured I'd share this with you guys in case you were looking for the same things!

A Collection of Hairstyles From Ages 0-3

Last night, I was looking through some old photos of my kids and saw the many hairstyles that I used to do to my daughter's hair back when it was shorter. I can understand that a lot of my viewers might like and can do some of my recent hairstyles, but I know that your daughters hair might not be the same length (yet). Well, the photos below may help you with some ideas on how to style your daughter's hair if it's not long. Enjoy!

The hairstyle here was more of a natural thing. I had no idea on how to style her hair but I just let her wear it out because as you see her hair is FINE but not lengthy enough to do anything with.

In this photo, I simply parted her hair from ear to ear and then banded three ponytails in the front for a quick on the run do.

In this photo, she was going to take pictures and I didn't know how to do her hair, so I took the matching headband that came with her dress and put it in her hair and voila! There you have it.

Sorry the picture is a little blurry, but this has always been one of my fave photos for some reason. For her hair, I took some of it in the front and brushed it to the side and took a pretty little clip and pinned it down and let the rest of her hair hang freely.

On her second birthday, I let her sport the curly pigtails and her crown! You know I had to work around that crown.

Her hair on the left side is what I had to deal with every morning before I came into the fine world of braiding. On the right side, I parted her hair from ear to ear, then parted the back in four sections. Put all five in ponytails and braided individual braids and put beads on them.

She's sporting two curly pigtails in front and a 'poof' in the back. I loved this hairstyle back before her hair got longer and started getting tangled more.

Like the previous photo, she's sporting the poof in the back but this time her pigtails are in two strand twists.

As her hair started to get longer, I edge away from the ponytails and gave her three ponytails in the front, kept her poof in the middle and put two ponytails in the back. I never realized how much I started doing her hair like that until I looked at all the old pictures, lol.

And last but not least, she's sporting front to back cornrows with beads on the end!

I hope this post helped a little in styling your little one's hair! I wish I knew about sites like mine back then, because her hair would probably be a LOT different lol.

Creative Designs Corner

Do you have any hairstyles that you've created and want to show to our viewers?! You may show up to 3 hairstyles! Just take a few minutes to fill out the form and we will post them as soon as possible!

ARTICLES: Biracial Kids Curly Hair Styles

Biracial children's hair can sometimes be difficult to style because of the natural tight curls and springiness of the hair. Many people will get the child's hair relaxed or have it put up in tight braids. However, when the hair is worn naturally curly, it can be absolutely beautiful. There are many ways to style biracial children's curly hair.


Biracial children can wear their hair down and curly, if their natural, spiraling curls are cared for correctly. One of the most important rules about maintaining curly hair is that it should not be washed more than once or twice a week. However, rinsing the hair each night is beneficial so there will not be a buildup of products on the hair. Biracial hair is naturally dryer than other types of hair, so washing it too often will deplete the hair of its natural oils. Another rule is that the hair must be detangled every day. The way to do this is to use detangler product or leave-in conditioner before you comb through the curls. Never comb through dry curls, or this will damage the hair. Once the hair is detangled, use a special hair oil or styling gel and scrunch the curls. Let them air dry. This will keep the curls from becoming frizzy.


Ponytails can be a beautiful and easy hairstyle on curly-haired children. However, there are some important upkeep rules about ponytails. The first rule is that the ponytail needs to be held in place with a cloth-covered band made specifically for hair. Rubber bands and ponytail holders with metal on them are too harsh on curly hair. They will pull the hair out and get tangled easily. The second rule is that the ponytail should not be too tight so the hair and scalp do not become damaged. Biracial curly hair can be fragile, and it needs to be taken care of. The third rule about ponytails is that they should never be worn to bed. The hairband could end up in a tangled disaster in the morning. The best way to preserve curls during sleep is to sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase or use a silk or satin sleeping cap.


Loose braids are another way for biracial children to show off their lovely curls. Braids that are too tight often pull on the child's scalp and can be very painful. Looser braids provide an opportunity for beautiful stray curls to hang by the face while the rest of the hair is pulled back into a braid. To create a loose braid, take the hair into three sections. Braid the hair like usual, but do not pull it too tight. Make sure the hair has leave-in conditioner or oil in it to keep it from becoming frizzy. Add a little extra product to the hair where the braid is secured, and scrunch it so the hair at the end of the braid will spiral into ringlets.

REVIEWS: Before I was introduced to this product, I tried Just For Me! Hair Milk Straightening Mist. I thought that product was a DREAM COME TRUE. It helped me comb through my daughter's hair more easily than before. I was so in love. About a month later, my sister told me she tried Soft & Beautiful Just For Me! 2-in-1 Conditioning Detangler on my daughter's hair and it works so much better than the other stuff (which was more expensive too). At first I was iffy because I don't like switching up when I've found something that works, but I did. OMG, this stuff that was cheaper than the hair milk worked 50x's better! I couldn't believe it!

After washing my daughter's hair, I parted my daughter's hair in section and spread it in one section. I let it sit for a few seconds and then ran my fingers throughjavascript:void(0) it. This stuff practically helps my daughter's hair DETANGLE ITSELF! I wish I was overexaggerating, but I'm not. It made detangling much, much more easier than before. I've been using this product since I was introduced to it and left the hair milk on the shelf! Although it's more for wet hair, I still use it on dry hair and it still helps! First I spray a little water on her hair, then spray the detangler and it works like magic. If you have a hard time detangling your daughter's hair, I HIGHLY suggest you try this!

My Lookalike

 Everyone is always telling me how much my daughter and I look look just alike, she's just the lightskinned version of me. Even though I think she looks like me, she looks a lot like her father too. I know when she was a baby she looked just like me. In the above photo was me in 1986, only a few months old and she's on the right around the same age in 2006. I think we look just a like! I don't know why I felt the need to share this, has nothing to do with 'hair'...BUT it has to do with my daughter, so be it!
