Short of buying some crimpers how would you do an 80's hairstyle on dd,aged not quite 5 and with long v. straight hair ???? Just googled images and most of it is curly.

side ponytail?

You could plait it overnight and then put it in a side ponytail.

Lots of little plaits in damp hair over night gives the same effect as crimpers.

We must have shared 80's hairdos ruddynorah!

Don't forget to do the side ponytail with a really foul scrunchy

ooh a side pony tail - OF COURSE ! Acvtually had thought of plaiting the night before but yes, lots of little plaits would work even better

Providing I can get her to buy in to the idea. We are going to a sort of 80's themed party on sunday but the 'dressing up' is a bit half hearted and we don't really know anyone so wimping out ourselves but dd seems keen.

Thanks v. much everyone - yes a scrunchy. good idea ! Marvellous. Have just bought her a hideous dress (and leggings of course) in Matalan but she seems quite keen on it sadly.
