I dyed my hair a shade darker this weekend - what do you think? Gentlemen may prefer blondes, but I've always loved the drama of dark hair. I've also been studiously working on my pin curl technique.
Lisa, whose hair videos I just adore, recommended a setting lotion called LottaBody. So I took a trip to my neighborhood beauty supply and picked some up. You dilute it with water, and then spray it on your hair as you're setting the curls. I also tried using wide-pronged hair pins (as opposed to bobby pins) because I read that they won't leave crimps in your hair. They didn't, but it took A LOT of those little suckers to get a curl to stay in. Then I wrapped the whole thing up in a turban (Jeff loves to make fun of this) and slept on it. Overall, I'd say it was a success! I'm hoping to get another day out of the curls as well.
Here I am hamming it up for the camera.
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday!
