Well, we're back home in New York, safe and sound. We had such a lovely holiday! Six whole nights at my parents' home in Arizona with lots of food and fun. I tried to entertain everyone by sporting a different hairdo everyday, all of them learned by watching tutorials on YouTube. This is one of my favorites, a classic pin curl set.
Here's the video I watched to learn the technique. I set the curls on dry hair, and used a styling putty as a setting lotion. I left them in while I slept, and voila! Lovely, lush curls. I modeled my 'do as we walked around Jerome, a magical former mining town near my parents' house. After its mining days, Jerome became a ghost town, but now it's filled with charming little shops, galleries, and restaurants. I stopped into Magdalena's Bazaar, my favorite boutique, and came across this lovely purple flower hair pin that I knew would be the perfect accessory for my curls.
I've been experimenting with lots of other retro styles - I can't wait to show you the results!
P.S. I must have been a very good girl this year, because I got the Threads archive DVD that I was longing for. It's truly amazing!
