Kids Tips & Trends

It’s FALL season, that’s right, Autumn, your favorite time of year.
It’s your downtime before the Holiday rush, where the leaves get crunchy, and the long-waited Pumpkin Spice Latte is back on the menu. But wait- OH NO! Suzy’s back in school and just told you she’s bored of her hair style- eeeeek… Well, here’s a few tips this season that will keep your kids fresh, on us.

Clipped-backed Bob:
So now that the temperature’s dropping, Julie’s decided to grow out the bob you’ve been maintaining since she was two. We’ve dreaded this day, but it’s finally here! How are you going to survive? The class clip-back, of course! It’s super easy, cute, and clean! What’s more to ask? This will make growing it out a breeze! (For now, until she decides she wants a bob again.)

The Twisted-Top-Knot:
This is my favorite look for Fall. It’s cute and fun for all textures and ages! Your girl will have the freedom of flowing hair with the efficiency of it being out of her eyes. Now you won’t have to worry about her bugging you for bangs, problem solved! She’ll enjoy the season effortlessly with this look!

The Compromise:
This look is perfect for when you and your spouse can’t quite agree on a cut. You want it long and beachy, dad wants it buzzed (or vise versa) BUT the point is that’s no fun. Your excuse? It’s not summer anymore. But guess what, It’s totally in style to let it grow! Not enough to go with the ‘surfer’ look? Okay, well, here’s the haircut you both can agree on. Shorter on the sides, but, three words: Longer, Layered, and Feathered in the front.

Let It Grow:
You could also tell your spouse that they can pick his hair-style next season because this look is too cute to pass on! If your son has the curls to pull it off, embrace it! It’s a little longer than what you’re used to, but that’s why Fall is the perfect time to try it! Your Pumpkin Spice Latte now comes with cold foam, you’re a mom full of adventure and surprises, so should your son!

Funky Festive Bun:
This is the easiest, yet most creative style I’ve seen, perfect for all your fall festivities. You’re gonna need three things: A hair donut, orange hair-color spray, and fake leaves from Micheal’s. Put your daughter’s hair up in a bun the way you usually style it for ballet or dance. You’re going to spray the entire bun with the orange hair-color spray. TIP: Use a paper towel to protect the rest of her hair from the color to keep this look clean. Once accomplished, you can either bobby pin the leaves around the bun, or even hot glue the leaves to a green scrunchie. You totally got this!

“Being a Mom is the most rewarding and fulfilling experience in my life. My three babies (although they are growing up quickly) amaze and surprise me almost every day. Their personalities are totally different and so are their life challenges. Helping guide them on their individual journeys to become responsible young adults fills my life with pure joy. Now don’t get me wrong… they can be little turds too… lol … but they are my little turds and wouldn’t change a thing.”- Jennifer Parker

Greta High

Motherhood is by far the most difficult, but also the most meaningful thing I’ve ever done. I have found in my kids the two people who know and love me most, and have a much higher opinion of me than I could ever deserve. They understand that I will always do my absolute best for them, but now that they are older (11 and 16), they also understand that I’m just a human and I struggle too. They believe in my strength, but also allow me to be vulnerable. They’re my best friends. I’m so grateful for this journey of being their mom.
