I know I've said this before but it's still true: I veer from loving loose, casual curls and styles to more smooth and structured ones, but I do tend to prefer the former – even to a messy degree! And I just LOVE big Mrs-Havisham-had-a-fight-with-Marie-Antoinette hair, the kind you can hide small things in, like, say, a little tea cup, or perhaps a few biscuits. But last week, with freshly done regrowth and newly lilac'd locks, I did a smooth curls style, and put in a little front roll. My hair wants to fall forward and spend time on my face, in my eyes and even in my mouth but I don't find that entirely practical and so I usually do something with that section of hair that is really keen to be a fringe.
I also have been trying a new setting pattern and the results have been great. This was my first go at it – and, as you can see, a little strand came out and made a chicken (where on earth did I get that name for sticky-out strands?!) (was it you?!) but I was able to brush it into my curls quite easily, which was good. No one wants a chicken in their hair!
But anyway, I wanted to share the steps from taking out pin curls, the brushing of the spirally curls together into smoothed curls and then the finished result. What do you think? Do you like it? Do you prefer wearing casual styles or do you like really structured 'dos?
