I have often done my toddler girls’ hair in this style. It keeps it out of their faces while it grows out.
It also helps them look even more adorable when they “smile” for pictures.
My five year old recently informed me that when I do hair this way, I’m giving her three ears.
“Two regular ones on her head, and a bear’s ear on top.”
Hmm. Never thought of it that way, but this hairdo has now been officially nicknamed the “bear’s ear” by my kids. I suppose it resembles the ears on a teddy bear? Everyone but the girl whose hair we are discussing seems to think it’s great.
As for me, she’s cute no matter how many “ears” she’s got. Oh, the things children think of!
