Hi everyone
DD is turning 10 in a few weeks time and we have decided to have a Hairdressing Party at home. There is a lovely first year apprentice at the Salon we go to that we are organising to come over and do some hairstyles on the girls and teach them a few styles.
Does anyone have any really good ideas to add to the party structure etc?
We are going to do hair themed party bags with hair elastics, clips, hairbrush but I'm a bit stuck as to what else!
Any ideas would be appreciated!

Great idea for a party!

Maybe get one or two of these and the girls can take turns to practise hairstyles on the dolls?

Get some temporary hair colour spray the girls could use on the day? (could get messy), or  coloured hair extensions to add to their hairstyle?

Set them up to get a manicure makeover as well?  They could do each other’s nails, or you and another adult could do for them?

Sounds fun! What about getting some bits and bobs from spotlight so the girls can make/decorate their own hair clip?

Set up a photo booth to capture the new hairstyles

Photo booth or fun accessories they can hold up, sort of like instagram/snapchat filters.

So feather boas, oversized sunglasses, fake moustaches on sticks...that type of thing.  DD went to a party with those and it was great.
