We at the Black Hair Hub like to think of quarantine time as family time. And before you roll your eyes at our cheesiness, allow us to layout why we think so.
Well before this lockdown came into play, we battled between busy work schedules, travel time and the needs of our kids. Amidst it all, how much time did we actually get to be together as a family? Not a lot we assume!
As crucial as social distancing is, we understand that it can be very limiting. One of the best things about it however, is that you can now finally spend quality time with your loved ones. Turn this time into a much-deserved family staycation more than anything else! But, what happens after you’re done playing all the board games, watching all your favourite TV shows and you start noticing your tots getting angsty? Well, that’s where we come in.
Our solution to your collective boredom comes in the form of two words – PLAY DRESS-UP!
And we promise this activity will be fun for both you and your little ones. Let out the kid in you and make this a “who wore it better” dress-up party that is sure to leave the entire family entertained.
So to give you a hand in this activity, we’ve listed down a couple of A-Mazing hairstyles that will work both, for you and your mini-you!
Bringing colour into anything is bound to be the best break away from boredom. So we’ll start with this chic beaded afro hairstyle. And if you’re feeling extra creative, throw in a tie and dye t-shirt and some face art to go with the braids and the beads and there you’ll have it – the happy hippie vibe. Of course, this also means that your little ones get to paint your face too. And once you’ve done all that, you might as well play some Bob Marley classics to turn this into a dance party with the entire fam at home. We promise this will be a day to remember. A million moments definitely making it to the gram!
We all remember pretending to be princesses and having tea with a handsome mighty lord from a land far, far away – this will be your partners and baby daddies! Invite them to play along too. And because every princess needs to be properly dressed at tea time, this beautiful braided hairstyle will go perfect with your baby’s favourite fancy gown. The best part- this braid is bound to look stunning on you as well. So instead of sitting on the side-lines, squeeze yourself into the most ridiculously royal dress you own and join the party. What better time to let your imagination run, than this!
And if perfecting a look is still your thing (so what if you’re indoors) use some Just For Me Natural Hair Milk Smoothing Edges Cream to tame those edges and keep your hair in control.
Get the cameras ready ladies cause this afro hairstyle is definitely one that will have you gushing and cooing, both at yourself and at your little girl. Sweet and innocent with a touch of messy, this afro hairstyle is our absolute favourite when it comes to dressing up like cowgirls or farmers. (ok we went at two different ends there! But you take your pick) Dhungarees or overalls are perfect to complete this look. And when this quarantine is behind us, you can even choose to replicate it for a fun girl’s night out.
There you have it ladies! With the 3 kids’ hairstyles mentioned above, you’ll have no problem enjoying family time, even in quarantine.
