I have 3 daughters but one in particular loves to be different by experimenting with her looks.
No not tanning , makeup or dressing differently but her hair.
Being that there are 8 children , I always encourage our children to express themselves in any way they wish and recently my 11 year old daughter took to joining in on making the under hair shaven look her own style.
Now I know what some may say and yes her dad was very unopen to the idea of shaving her head but once he realized it was what she wanted , her hair would grow back and it did sound to look very cool , he gave into it and actually done the deed himself (with supervision of myself of course).
Only a small area was shaven in the shape of a peaked triangle and when her hair was down it was unnoticeable but once tied up it could be seen depending on it the rest of the hair covered it with a ponytail or what we went with, braided later on .
Drew was very impressed and immediately loved her choice of style and so did we .
Just as we were having fun with her hair style choices we received a great addition in the post courtesy of Character toys .
The three strand braider Easy Braids is said to be a handheld device that helps you to braid your hair easier if your struggling to do it by hand . It helps separate the hair into three sections and twists and turns it all by the press of a button , meaning no twiddly twisting of the hands or aching fingers and wrists.
The Easy Braids is aimed at children aged 5+. I think it may be a little fiddly without adult supervision and help for them to put the hair into the sections but after that process is complete it is all about pressing a button which is very easy and effortless.
This product costs around £19.99 and is available form most main toy retailers .
Drew love the idea of braids , I have never been great at them and just really starting to get the hang of them at 33 years old but after a few attempts with the easy braider and then a little more practice , I'm now a pro . Well in the daughters eyes.
The fact that it came with stylish beads and bands to add to the braids when finished made it even more fun and cool looking.
The Easy range has also got an Easy Nails too and hopefully we will be seeing more Easy range products alongside them.
In my honest opinion I have to admit that I found this rather difficult to use.
although I love the concept of the easy braider helping with those twists , I actually spent more time and confusion trying to add the strips of hair into each clip on the device making it twice as long to achieve the same effect without it .
I tried to let the daughter do it herself but she was unable to do it alone so its definitely not Easy enough for the smaller hands.
The device is really lite to hold but its rather chunky for the smaller hands and I found it rather fidgety to get to grasps with .
For me, results were that the braider helped me understand the whole braiding direction, it helped me see how to separate the strands and how to twist them spearatly into a plait but if anything the adding the strands to the clips was what made it hard and confusing for me .
You had to separate the hair into three sections, add each section through each clip which was then separately pulled through the tube before pressing the button to enable to device to do the braiding.
What do you think of the Easy braider, do you think this device would help you achieve that perfect plait ?
Let me know in the comments below if you've given it a try already .

This sounds like a really interesting way to do hair braids, especially for those who can't quite get there fingers around doing them themselves.

I saw something like this in Japan over a decade ago and it didn't look easy to use either. Although I love the end results shown here, I think it's best to just learn to braid on your own.

Such a shame that it's a difficult product to use. Much easier to braid yourself, I think.

This looks like a fun gift! I think Drew looks fab, and you're pretty awesome for letting her express her own style :-)

I've seen things like this previously and always found them disappointing. It's a lot easier to simply hand braid the hair! Her shaved hair looks great!

I used to have something really similar when I was a kid and I absolutely loved it, shame it was tricky to use x

My niece would love this. It's her birthday soon, so I might have to get it for her.
15/8/2017 11:49:49 am
I would have loved this as a child, her hair looks fab! x
15/8/2017 03:57:27 pm
It seems to have done a great job at braiding her hair, better than what I do anyway. I know both my daughters would love this!
15/8/2017 03:59:44 pm
This looks like a brilliant braid tool, I am sure my daughter would like this too

My daughter has really long hair - she can sit on it - and is desperate for me to do more imaginative hairstyles but I'm really not very good at it so this would be great for us. It does sound really fiddly but I guess if it gives you an idea of how to do them in future not always using it.... The photos are great and her hair looks amazing.

I love the look of the easy braided, such a fantastic idea. My daughter would really enjoy it I think.
16/8/2017 01:10:42 pm
I didn't look anywhere near as cool as this when I was that age... I wish I had though!
16/8/2017 03:33:20 pm
This looks like such a fun thing for girls! I probably would have had fun with something like this when I was a kid.
16/8/2017 04:04:01 pm
This looks like a fantastic product for girls, I know mine would have loved this when they were smaller x

As a mother who has spent hours upon end plaiting my twin daughters hair, this looks a great invention.

Love the finished result and the undercut looks fantastic. I think it's great that you encourage all of your children to express themselves and I' so glad my mum did the same with me.

I always wondered whether these sorts of products were as "easy" as the advertising makes out... I guess now I know they're not - seems like it took longer fiddling around with the clips than just simply plaiting lol. I used to always beg my mum for one of these when I was a kid - now I'm glad that she didn't buy me one (she was always good at braids anyway). I do love Drew's undercut though. I'm thinking of doing something similar myself! x

Your daughter has the coolest hair! I wish I had the courage to do an undercut.
26/8/2017 08:52:46 pm
Ahh thats so amazing she's got such a unique hairstyle! I love it! xo
