Roll her hair on sponge rollers and pull it back in a ponytail with a nice band that matches the dress, the curls will not fall out, and she will be able to sleep with the rollers in,, btw--wet hair! Thanks for making her look age appropriate!
Thank you. we have been doing school pageants for about 3 years and I always let her be natural as much as possible. I have tried to spongerollers before and it didnt work out so well!! I did that last year when she was crowning the new winner and it was a complete mess. My mom always curled my hair with spongerollers but I have fine hair. My daughter has pretty thick hair and the rollers made her hair look very big! I rushed her to my hair salon for a quick fix. I am thinking about pulling her into some sort of updo but nothing really fancy because her dress is so dramatic. I do think a hair band of some kind will be just perfect
