Thumbs up Experience with the BBB and black/ethnic hair

Trust me when I say I was quite leery but the way it was handled at the BBB really impressed me. In the photo below, my daughter had indvidual braids I had done as she went back to school later in the week. Her braids had been freshly-washed the day before so when she got to the salon she had 'clean' hair. She got the Fairytale Princess style.



It took two FGM's In Training to style her hair because they had to get it all on the top of her head with a thick black ponytail holder, then secured it with bobby pins. The style lasted for 5+ days like this even when she swam!

For the second visit right after Christmas of last year, she got the Coach package and her hair done in the Disney Diva style. She had cornrows which were done on the Disney Cruise Line but her hair was left out in the back. The stylist had no problem fashioning it into the hairstyle. Here was the result:

This stylist didn't do my daughter's hair 'directly' but she was next to the stylist working on my daughter's hair. She offered assistance in how to get her hair up in the Fairytale Princess style. She also complimented me on doing my daughter's individual braids! When I was there in December, there were two black stylists in the room. There is another lady who is biracial but she wasn't there in December. She was in August though.

The two times I went I did see Bronner Brother's products (spritz and pomade). If the stylist doesn't know (and they usually do), emphasize that you don't want anything water-based on your daughter's hair if it's pressed or chemically relaxed. Since my daughter had braids/cornrows, I instructed them to use spray leave-in conditioner. The stylists are very good about asking you first what product you'd like put in your child's hair.

Also, another FYI I found out when I made a BBB appointment for my daughter in April, you must bring your own brush and comb.

Your daughter is going to love the BBB!

Here are our pictures from the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique...

This was our first visit to the Boutique and we left very impressed! Although the two younger girls were the one's with appointments, our Fairy Godmothers made sure my oldest and I didn't leave before we had a sprinkling of pixie dust in our hair. DD5 was in a wheelchair, and the regular chair was moved from one of the stations to accomodate her. It was awesome! This Boutique is so charming... the whole experience was well worth the price!

Do you have this in our size?
All 3 sisters check in at the Podium...

The transformation...

After the pixie dust had settled...DD12 and DD5 look beautiful!



With Prince Charming at the Ball...

This is from our trip in January of this year..... One thing that I discovered about the dressing up and getting the hair done...it really got them noticed at the MK....While we were waiting for an autograph from Pinochio right inside the entrance ... within in a minute of standing there a person from the Dream Team came up and offered our girls a "private" meeting with Cinderella. It was really special!

I had wanted to go in May (and I"m more than twice 19...you do the math!) but there is not enough time in our schedule. DH gives me these bizarre looks when I talk about BBB and says I'm enough of a princess.

Maybe BBB needs to open a 2nd one near Pleasure Island...adults only BBB!

These are two of my pics from our trip in July and we got this dress at the disney store.


You have made some beautiful memories at WDW. I was sorry to read about your DD and I hope she is well now and that you are also doing fine. It's amazing how much a little "magic" will help. Barbara

We don't have a dinner scheduled with the Princesses this time. Do you all think doing the BBB would still be fun for my 6 year old? We just had a friend that works in Disney send her an Aurora dress and crown as a surprise. She even addressed the box to Princess Lily with the return address Princess Aurora. Lily told us that she saw Aurora checking her dress size when we were there in August.

So we have the dress... but will it seem like all dressed up with no where to go????

Absolutely not, you DD will love all of the attention that she will get and in my opinion is almost better than seeing the princesses. You can also head over to toontown and see if the princesses are there if you feel like you need to see them. My dd just thinks she is royalty so one day while we were leaving one of the parks she was doing her princess/beauty queen wave to everyone that walked by telling them goodbye or good day she even went as far as to say thank you for coming. Its something fun and special and memorable for them to have fun with.


By the way I love how you spell her name, that is how I spelled my dd3's name but everyone else seems to want to spell it Lilly.

Thank you we have had some really great trips. I have officially been in remission for 1 year as of Jan. and Lily is doing great she is learning how to crawl and stand she doesn't talk yet and she only eats baby food but we are working on that as well. I was sorry as well to read about your DD, I now how upset my older dd would have been, and congrats on the baby boy.

Also thank you for taking a look at my link.

I took my 3 yr old niece there in Oct 06 before our character dinner with Cinderella at 1900 Park Fare. We did have to wait about 30 minutes...there were several birthday parties at the time. Lauren felt like a princess and definitely will do it again!






Later that night in the Grand Floridian.



She wore her hair like this the next day to Epcot too. That's some pretty strong hairspray. It started to come down in the back.

I also have a Princess Lily. People will ask - "Is it one 'L' or two?" and I say - it's 2, but not together....

Okay, now that is clever. I just loved Lily. I had to name her that. I will try to figure out how to post her picture for you!
