She woke up and JUMPED out of bed today. Funny what the prospects of gorgeous hair will do for a girl's Tuesday morning:).

  3. She looks gorgeous... tell hubby that plaits is pronounced 'plats', so plates sounds very different. We also call it plaits in South Africa. I actually woke up this morning thinking about your post and that I could have added so much MORE!!! haha a very interesting topic indeed.... HAIR! hugs Sharon x

  6. You can tell she feels like a million dollars and certainly looks it. Plaits or braids are also called 'pigtails' in my part of the world . I have straight hair, when little it was long enough for me to sit on. My sister had naturally curly hair but those really nice soft loose curls. I would spend many a sleepless night with my hair in rags- a piece of fabric was wrapped around in spirals small sections of hair and twisted on itself till you looked like you had cloth spikes coming from your head and so uncomfortable to sllep in. I loved it when they were taken out as I would have soft curls just like my sister but by lunch time I would be back to long straight brunette hair instead of soft curls like my sis who had naturally golden blonde hair. Hope Niamh's lasted longer.

  7. And what gorgeous after pictures they are! Your little girl is so pretty and so obviously loves her hair!

    I'm a plaits person as well (am in the UK) and also know ponytails as pigtails. For more confusion in my school the style where you have two ponytails / pigtails on either side of your head was called 'handlebars' as it looks like bicycle handlebars.

    Its so strange to find out what other people call things, isn't it? I've watched American TV where they talked about 'bangs', which I think is a fringe? Am I right?

    Looking forward to seeing the dreads!

  10. And in Scotland we call them 'pleats'!

    And one ponytail above each ear is 'bunches'. I love finding out what words are used in other countries for things.

    I love this post, and I'm tempted to try it on my own hair (I'm 28!).

  11. Haha this is all so interesting! I'm from Australia and we use all of those terms but for all different things! a ponytail is one at the back, pigtails is one on each side, a plait is starting from the base of your head using only the same three sections and braids is from the top of your head when you add in sections of hair as you go! We don't really say bangs though. At least where I am!

  12. Awww her hair looks so beautiful. I bet she couldnt wait to get to school. I remember these days when gianna couldnt wait to get to school to show her hair off from a pageant she did the night before lol. She would pretty much sleep straight up all night. Funny, never thought about what things are called around the world. Would love to sit with all these ladies and compare everything. That would be fun.

  15. I was very excited to see the "after". So very pretty! You have a beautiful daughter, she seemed very happy with her lovely hair. I would LOVE to try this, unfortunately I was a "tomboy" raised with nothing around me except boys and never learned to do braids. Later in life I did try to teach myself with a "how-to" book, but the kept coming out quite crooked! LOL! So I will just enjoy the pics!

  16. Your daughter looks just like you, Krista! I always begged my mom to braid my hair at night when it was still wet. I couldn't wait to wake up the next morning to see the waves! The joys of being a little girl :)

  17. Now wonder the Swedish part of me finds English & American terribly confusing - add to that the fact that my father learnt his English in the US & to his death spoke with a slight American accent. Niamh's very pretty & it's great that she was so excited about it.

  18. Gorgeous after pics. And definitely plaits !!! Pigtails are not pleated, and a pony tail is a single one at the back. Plus bunches are the same a pigtails, one above each ear!!! LOL. I've wondered what bangs were too, but yeah, I think it is US for a fringe!

    US & UK - Two countries divided by a common language, right? LOL

  19. Niamh's hair looks so pretty today....well worth the pain! I'm a Brit living in Canada and the first time I went into a salon to get a hair cut, the stylist had to ask me 3 times 'If I had 'bangs''....had absolutely no clue what she was talking about! I am also from the land of 'fringes'!
