Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who’s got best Halloween hair of all?

Kids Halloween Hair Tips from the Experts at Beaners

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I would share some of these cool kids hairstyle tips!  I think some of these ideas are awesome and I hope that they can help.

Have an outfit that needs topping off with a cool “do,” or in need of some funky hair tips to perfect your Halloween look? Search no further, the style experts at Beaners Fun Cuts for Kids offer the following tips and advice!

Mohawk Madness – want to add a little height to your little man’s hair this year? Dampen the hair (not to much!) put gel or paste in it and mold the hair to your desired shape. A quick blow-dry and some spray colour on the top will make your man’s hair “stand out” this year!

Don’t “mess” with this Witch – need to create a shocking hair do for your little witch? Start at the nape of the neck; take chunks of hair and back comb. With a pick, smooth out the top and spray some white streaks in it with washable hair spray - perfectly wicked!

Vampire Hair – need to take a bite out of the costume competition this year? Wet the hair and put half amount pomade and half amount gel slick into it. Slick back with a fine toothcomb, spray all black and let dry! For an extra scary effect, spray white above the ears and knock em’ dead!

Beautiful Ballerina – add a little pirouette to your ballerina’s hair this season! Pull the hair into a high ponytail and hairspray smooth. Split the hair in the ponytail into two pieces twist one piece from top to bottom and wrap around ponytail and hold in place with bobby pins do the same with the other piece and wrap around the opposite way – et voila! a graceful ballerina bun!

Zombie Hair – scare ‘em stiff by grabbing pieces of hair and back combing while spraying hairspray. Sprinkle in some baby powder for a cool web dusty effect!

Want to add a little something special to your hair this Halloween to take your hair from Dull to Dramatic? Follow these add on tips to take it over the top. Drop by any Beaners location and ask a stylist to add one in for you or try it yourself at home!

Bead Braid – want to add a little more bling to your braid? Take small sections of hair and a handful of beads. Add the beads to the hair while the braid is being done (simply feed the bead through the hair to the desired location in the braid!)

Colour Contrast – need your hair to match your outfit? Grab your desired ribbon colour and braid it into your hair starting at the top.

Streak-tastic! – Another way to add colour to your hair is by grabbing a small section of dry hair and spray with colour spray, use multiple colours to get awesome locks. A little tip: we suggest styling the hair before adding colour spray.

Kyron Says Cookie! His Third Word Caught On Tape!

8:46 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

 With the convenience of camcorders today, I think its amazing when you can get an unexpected shot that makes you laugh.  Becky had the good fortune of catching 9 month old Kyron saying his third word ( Mama and Dada came first....) which was "Cookie". 

As you can see, Becky was pretty excited about catching this!  The look on Kyron's face is priceless,  its like he realizes he did something cool, then just goes back to smiling and wanting his darn cookie!

 I wonder what his next word will be?

Kyron Come and Dance With Me! Sweet Baby Dance Moves!

9:38 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  This is a really cute video of baby Kyron showing off his sweet dance moves!  Becky didn't want me to post this, as she is singing one of her cool "made up songs" with him!  She thinks its embarrassing, but  I think it is really sweet! 

Kyron has really shown a love of music and some of you may remember his other dance video from when he was only 7 weeks old!
I know that he gets his love of music from his mommy, which is pretty cool!

Baby Kyron Started Standing! Yikes!

9:12 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

When Kyron started crawling a few weeks ago, we knew that it would only be a matter of time before he moved on to bigger and better things!  This week, he started pulling himself up from a sitting position to standing.  He now pulls himself up on the nearest couch, coffee table and any other object in sight!

 Becky and I had to move his crib down to the lowest setting due to his "upright adventures". 

And a quick video.....

Based on his leg strength, I imagine it will not be long before he starts walking! Yikes!

Kyron's First Calgary Flames Hockey Game!

7:30 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  Anyone that knows me will confirm that I am a big Calgary Flames fan!  I have had season tickets for the past six or seven years, but I find it hard to find time to make all of the games.  In fact, Becky has my other "seat" and she has not been to a game in over a year and a half, as I usually give the tickets I cannot use away or take Becky's brother to the games.

 After seeing how well baby Kyron did at his first baseball game in San Francisco last month, we decided to see how he would do at a Calgary Flames home game!  We had the chance to take him to a pre-season game this week against our provincial rivals, the Edmonton Oilers!  Once again, Kyron proved that he is a social butterfly and that he loves being around people, as he was an angel the entire game! 

Here are some pics....

I had to break down and get him his own Jersey and hat! ( The hat say's "born to be a Flames Fan!")

Here is a short video also....

I did not get to got to a Calgary Flames game until I was 17, so Kyron is off to a great start as a potential long term Flames fan!  At the very least, Becky and I will be able to go to some more games together, with Kyron on our laps cheering!

Kyron's First Baseball Game!

9:21 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

  While we were in San Francisco earlier this month, we were fortunate enough to be able to attend a San Francisco Giants baseball game!  Kyron is a real "people person" and he thrives on talking to strangers, so you can imagine his reaction when we first sat down at the ballpark....

He had a blast at the game and loved making friends with everyone around him!  He even had time to flirt with the girl in front of us.....

We were so close the the field, that I tried unsuccessfully to get him a ball from the outfield! 

But he did get a certificate from the SF Giants confirming that this was Kyron's First Baseball Game!  He even got to meet the Giants mascot, Lou Seal!

Even though it was a little chilly ( and I am Canadian, so you know it was cold!) we had a great time.  I cant wait to take him to his first NHL game this season!
