What I Did: So, I have naturally curly hair. But when I saw how to make the heatless waves via Pinterest, I thought, why not try it. Besides, the girl in the pictures had flawless waves from the technique- that should happen to me, right? Wrong. I woke up with the twists still perfectly intact, which made me excited about the end result. Well, when I unpinned them, and desperately tried to claw my way through the Narnia forest of hair, I was left with the most unmanageable [hairdo] that you could possibly imagine. I mean seriously. My hair has never looked this horrible, EVER. With the force of 50 bobby pins, I was finally able to make a bun that was presentable enough for work. Holy crap. Never again. I angered the beast that is my hair.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  This project only has hope on people with soft, super straight hair. I would absolutely never attempt this again.

What I Did: I thought I would be great at this because this technique is one of the first things you learn in cosmetology school. We called them Zulu knots. This was a no brainer for me. My daughter Bridget was so patient while I did this. Took me a good hour of watching Disney and twisting knots. My biggest fear was the hair would not be dried by the morning. That is why I did so many. She was SO excited to see it in the morning. After I got all the bobbi pins out I tried to pull them apart as gentle as I could to avoid any frizz. Well as you can tell, that didn’t help. The curls were just too tight. She skipped over to the mirror while I was trying and failing to hold in my laughter. The look on her face tells it all. She was crushed. I on the other hand was laughing so hard it hurt. By this time we were late to school and my only option was so spray it down and slick it back into a bun.

My Result:

Next Time I Will:  I would not try this again but if you twisted my arm to, I would do bigger sections and I wouldn’t twist them so tight. My solution was to but foam rollers from the beauty supply.
Here are pictures of my solution!
She is much happier. Now I just use a curling iron since she is not afraid if it anymore!

What I Did: We were actually inspired when looking through this blog and exclaimed how cute the hairbow inspiration was, and how it didn’t look that complicated. Well, turns out not to be as easy as anticipated. Oh well, guess it’s not the hairstyle of the year for us.
