Of course just a puff isn't quite exciting enough for me, so we needed to jazz it up a bit. I don't really stress about school pictures though because I don't buy them. They just go in the year book. I always take my own pictures of the kids every fall that I make prints of and give to family and friends.
As you can see. I decided to add these little twirlies all the way around her hairline going up to the puff. There is probably a better name for these like single stranded rolling twists or something, but I like twirlies. After all, that is how I did them. The hardest part of this style was parting out the puff. Trying to make a nice round circle on a not so perfectly round head is tricky. But after that, I just made triangleish parts, twirled each section, and stuck the ends up under the ponytail holder that was holding the puff. Simple!
The next day I wanted to get all that free hair tucked into something more protective, still wanting to keep things simple though because it will be time to do Back-to-School hair soon. I chose twists. We have been doing a lot of braids lately. I also didn't make these the rope style twists (you know the kind where you twirl the hair as you twist) I wanted these to be loose and fluffy. Well, fluffy they are, and they are great! I just reused the triangle parts that were already in and than sort of randomly made more triangleish parts all over. This wasn't a meticulously planned out style. And I LOVE it!
I am afraid with the twists being so loose they won't last long. Although they have been in about 5 days now and are still holding up pretty well. It is funny when a quick easy style turns out to be a favorite!
I am still undecided about how I am doing V's Back-to-School hair. What are you all doing?
