Who Styled Your Hair Most Often When You Were a Child?

Whether your fondest memories include picking out barrettes with Mom, sitting still while an older sis slicked back a ponytail over Cheerios, or flinching for Dad's super tight braids, think way back to who styled your hair most often. (As a side note, this girl looks a bit young to be using that flat iron — then again, I remember doing mine at about that age . . . and the accompanying burn mark afterward. Ouch.)

my mom usually did my hair if i didn't do it, but i have this great photo from when i was about 3 of my aunt marie putting hot (well, warm) rollers in my hair. it's so cute. also wheni was a teen my grandma (now passed on) taught me how to do pin curls just like she did when she was a teen.

My mother put my hair in a ponytail every day until I started doing my hair myself. My hair was curly and crazy though because I didn't stay using hair driers until high school so it always looked a mess. My only memory of my dad doing my hair was when he gave me a bath when I was little and then dried my hair by rubbing it in a towel like he does to his own hair. Then my mother saw him doing that and screamed at him that he was going to turn my hair into felt. Good times.

I remember doing my hair a lot. I was actually pretty good at it. Before that it was my Mom.

My mom did but she couldn't do much with hair. I had pigtails or a ponytail only. If she felt "creative" I had both styles at once! Yeah three pigtails.

My mom until i was old enough to take care of it, i think about first grade. Granted my hair was past my butt, and my sisters went down to her knees, so my mom would braid our hair in french braids, fish tail braids, anything to keep our hair out of the way and to keep us from ruining it.

My mom. She was a fan of two pigtails (class photos are proof). As they may have seemed embarrassing when I was little, but I loved those little pigtails :) Just the other day she was able to make a tight pony braid with just one hair tie for me and I, just like when I was kid, was amazed by her mom super powers :)

my mom's not really a hair person. so i went to a neighbor who was also a beautician like once a week for a style. now my sister's a beautician so i just go to her, it's soooo much cheaper than going to someone else and she's really good at doing hair.

My mom curled my hair for me. I never really did much with my hair growing up though. I do fondly remember sitting in my dad's lap and having him cut and file my nails :)

When my mom started to work again when I was little, my dad would put my hair in pony tails of any sort. Other than that...my mom did my hair when I was little, but I quickly did it because she always pulled!!

Two things 1) the results to the question gives credence to the theory that women try to relive their childhood through their daughters by doing stuff for them (like styling the hair).2) My mom styled my hair everryyy day with two ponytails so much so that when I cut my hair short once as an adult I had a permanent part in the middle of my head...geesh...

Some of my best memories are of my Mom doing my hair. Loved it! I do my daughters' hair now. My husband will do our daughters' hair too, which I think is the cutest thing ever! Nobody does a ponytail like my husband!

I love that some of your dads tried to style you! :D how sweet! My dad didn't even know what a curling iron did, teehee. My mom did it because she had to of course, but my sister and big girl cousins would braid my hair just for fun (my scalp is still in pain).

My dad used to curl my hair every day for school until about 4th grade when I was allowed to do it myself. It's one of my favorite memories of him.

I think my mum did. Always a ponytail for school. Dad did do the super tight ones.
