“There is always a rainbow after the rain”, but not for this little lady! The ponytail is bent to the side forming an arch and to complete the imagery, the cotton serves as the clouds and a series of coloured hair strips are tied in a spiral in the ponytail.

Regardless of what she might have gone through, this kid is absolutely happy!
