Share Your Ears: A Cute & Simple "Mickey Mouse Ears" Hairstyle

This post is sponsored by Make-A-Wish Foundation but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. 

During the month of November, many families like mine focus on volunteering and giving back. This month, there's a fun and easy way to do so! In celebration of 90 years of Mickey Mouse, and to honor the 130,000th wish granted from Make-A-Wish, Disney is asking fans to "Share Your Ears" to help make wishes come true for children with critical illnesses!

It's so easy to join in on the fun, and help make a difference! From now until November 27th, 2018, all you have to do is publicly share a photo of you or your family showing off your Mickey Mouse ears or any creative "ears" on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using #ShareYourEars and Disney will donate US $5 to Make-A-Wish. Disney will be donating as part of the Disney Team of Heroes commitment to give comfort and inspiration to families around the world!

Maybe you are already a Disney fan and have your own Mickey Mouse ears. If not, you can still easily participate by making your own! ANY ears will do! At 22 weeks pregnant, I'm not really feeling overly creative right now, but if you have long hair, it is super easy to create "ears" using your own hair! Not only is it simple to do, but it's super cute, too!

Mickey Mouse Ears Hairstyle

Thanks to my two daughters, I have years of experience in fixing their hair. Coincidentally, one of their favorite hairstyles is messy pigtail topknots, which just so happens to look like little ears! Lily requests this hairstyle most often, and I'm happy to oblige, because it's quick and easy to do!

Step One:

Brush out the tangles, make a middle part the entire way back with a comb, and pull hair into high pigtails.

Step Two:

Twist each pigtail into a loose bun, and secure around the base of the pigtail using a hair elastic.

Step Three:

Lightly loosen and tousle each bun. Add a bow to each bun to change those "Mickey Mouse Ears" to "Minnie Mouse Ears!"

Cute Hairstyles for Girls

The holiday season is our favorite time of the year, but I always encourage my kids to give back as much as they possibly can. We have so many fun holiday traditions, and making it a "season of giving" is one of them. Giving always makes the season more special!
