Mama + Baby Top Knots | Ann-Marie Loves

When I was pregnant with Briar and trying to imagine what she would look like, I always envisioned straight dirty blonde hair with enviable bangs and a tiny top knot. While I was right about her hair color, I certainly never would have guessed that we would be blessed with a super¬†curly-haired gal! It’s still a bit of a mystery as to where those curls came from (we suspect it’s John’s side) but now I can’t imagine Briar having anything else!

Her hair has grown like crazy over the past couple of months which means it is long enough to put into a tiny little ponytail worn on the top of her head, the same way I put up my hair. And the best part of all is that Briar is finally allowing us to put her hair up and leave it there all day. Before now, she would instantly pull out any ponytails, headbands, or barrettes…girl just wanted to be free!

I get such a kick out of seeing her hair up because she look a entirely different person, albeit a very¬†grown up person! Plus, I would be lying if I said I didn’t love having a matching hairstyle as my babe. I keep thinking I want to cut my hair even shorter (I’m in full-blown MOM MODE), but then I think, nope, you need enough hair for a top knot! We’ll see…

As for now, it’s matching top knots for the two of us!

    Totally envious of your adorable matching top knots (something I’ll never get to experience with my son.)
    Also loved Briars pigtails at the museum below – so unbelievably cute!

    So so cute!! I’ve always been envious of your top knot. Please do a tutorial sometime. It always has the perfect shape and never looks too tight or too flat :)
