Both my parents come from large impoverished families so my mom said her sisters frequently did her hair when my grandmother could not. However, my grandmothers were busy and overwhelmed. If Jill has time to take before and after pictures of Janessa and her assigned Brother-Mom, then surely she could’ve combed Janessa’s hair herself. It probably would’ve taken less time and effort than snapping the photos.

Wait, isn't that women's work?  Philip's soul has now been endangered!  Though I admit that Janessa looks much better than she usually does.  She actually looks cute.  Is Jill trying to promote Phillip as being a good father candidate so she can marry him off now that the Duggars have married off one of their young sons?

Jill does do her kids' hair, and not so nicely either.  Years back, Jill put out a hair tutorial video and I was absolutely appalled at how she yanked at their hair, grabbed their jaws and twisted them into position, moused and gelled and sprayed them into petrification.  But mostly I remember just how roughly she treated those children while styling their hair.  And they never once complained, which I found chilling.

She certainly looks better, but it appears that her hair, especially on the back, is super sparse. There are literal bald spots in there by the looks of it. A few of the littles seem to also have that look to them. Maybe Nurie and the other NotNuries had somewhat better nutrition as they were growing up, because as thin as they are, at least they appear to have enough hair to cover their heads.

The type of shirt Phillip is wearing (on a non-starving person) is supposed to fit like this.

Even on a much younger child.

It’s similar to the golf shirts that Tiger Woods wears and is designed to fit somewhat snugly on the body. That shirt is swallowing Phillip. Look how much the fabric billows, especially at the bottom and compare it to how it fits on the model. Of all the children, Phillip always looks the most unwell to me.

Phillip is skin and bones, especially his face, which looks skeletal.  He’s also very pale.  I think he may fast frequently so that there will be more food for the little kids.

I actually love quirky things, but I like them to be a little more intentional. Matching earrings that are unintentionally different sizes wouldn't be something I'd choose.

I would, however, rock those earrings if one of my kids made them for me when they were preteens.

After being stuffed into that dark, cluttered, soul-crushing RV with 14 people for a month, I'm surprised any of the Rod kids have the energy to be creative. 

Those earring styles must have an audience because several Etsy stores sell them. The material is vinyl "leather." Most of the ones for sale are evenly cut, however, so I don't understand why these look uneven. They are made from patterns. Maybe Jill should buy the business a decent pair of scissors. 

Never mind. Jill doesn't buy things for other people, even her own children.

Dumb question, but are these girls expected to be in full hair and makeup every single day, all day long?  Because I don't think I've ever seen Nurie and the Not-Nuries bare-faced.  I can't imagine having to be "on" like that, especially when stuck inside an RV all day long.  If I'm traveling anywhere, I'm in super comfortable clothes and the heck with makeup.  It's very sad to think that they've been trained that their bare face is not acceptable to the world and they have to be done up, probably just in case they stop at a rest area and Jill sees a suitable godly man for one of her daughters.

There was one of those fundy mothers that bragged about her daughters panicking if Daddy was coming home soon and they weren't all made up like a Godly young woman should be, so they'd rush off to make sure they were presentable.

It sounds like Jill, but when would the girls have to worry about Daddy coming home to washed faces?  He's almost never gone, and not gone for long when he does go somewhere.  Usually he's just taking Jill off for a private meal or shopping while the kids make to with whatever is in the house.  Maybe she's talking about the very few times when David went off with just the boys for some man time.

I think that was Jill, but it may be a common thing amongst some groups. My grandmother, a very proper Southern lady, never left the house without makeup even when we were on a road trip and would be sitting in the car all day.

I think it has more to do with Jill's beautician background.  They are like walking billboards of Jill's exceptional cosmetics and hair talent.

I used to work with a lady who told me that for years after she was married, she would always be sure to wake up before her husband so she could go into the bathroom, put on full makeup and then go back to bed so when they woke up together she looked beautiful.

I wear a full face of makeup almost every day.  Even on a Saturday when I only leave the house for 30 minutes to run an errand.  Makeup is something I enjoy.  I also own enough powder cosmetics to last the rest of my life, so why not.  Do I need to wear it? No.  Am I capable of leaving the house without it? Yes.

True, unfortunately.  Why don't they make bead jewelry like Nurie?  If they get the hang of it, they can turn out some pretty jewelry, and would have more luck selling it on Etsy, at least to their leg humpers.
