Alright. . .somebody's got to have a halfway decent picture of their hair. If I can post my mug here, you can too.
Here's how mine started:
Pincurls set the night before and allowed to dry completely, no setting lotion.
During the day:
I took out the front side curls and fluffed them out & hair sprayed it to death. . .then rolled them up, leaving the back pincurls up and tucked underneath the hat.
Took the rest of pin curls down, more hairspray, more teasing. . .then combed the hair up smoothly to the crown and pushed combs in to hold it. Then artfully arrange curls on top and pinned & sprayed some more. (Addi did all the artful arranging - she did a great job! Ask her to do your hair, too. )
