One of my little girls loves to have long hair. Since her sister has cut her hair and she has also taken scissors to it, she has yet to experience her own long hair. Because of this she is constantly creating her own hair.
Her most tried and true hair is to wear a pair of pants upside down on her head so the legs fall down into two ponytails. We had an old witch wig attached to a witch hat that she has worn to threads. Her other option is to strap her sister’s Hawaiian grass skirt around her head and have it fall down creating thick long green hair. (She doesn’t care what color it is, she only cares that she can toss her head, making it brush back and forth.)
A couple of months ago for her birthday, I had sewn her a play Indian girl costume she wanted, and decided it would be fun if she had matching hair to go with it. Since money was tight and I was determined to do most of her birthday by making it by hand, I set out to make a wig that had long thick dark hair. It wasn’t as hard as I though it would be and in no time she had her own, beautiful, long, thick brown hair. She ate it up, and you’ll find her asking all the time for me to put on her long hair.
Someday I hope she’ll get to experience having her own ‘real’ long hair.
