    Day In Curlers

    There's nothing quite like spending the day in curlers! Perhaps wrapped in a scarf. Letting your hair air dry as you go through your day. Nothing like it!

    Rollerset!

    Got my rollerset done today! I am super excited. It turned out super cute and my stylist was wonderful. She gave me a beautiful full curly style. She set me up for my new weekly appointment. Will be great to be one of the regulars.

    A Day In Rollers

    Whenever I get the chance, I just love to set my hair in rollers and air dry throughout the day. It's fun to add a sheer scarf to disguise the look of the rollers. I just love setting my hair in sponge rollers!

    I have this bad habit of stroking and playing with my hair. It's just so soft! I want to grow it out longer so I can do a nice long braid. Not too long, though.

    I plait mine when it's long, either those Heidi plaits or a single French plait. It's convenient, and comfortable. I brush it out for half hour morning and night.
