Day 27-"Irish Dancer"

I don't know where to start with this one. There are so many things going on in my head with these crazy curls. My little sister is doing a challenge as well on her own blog. I saw her crazy curls and I just had to try it. I picked up the sponge rollers from her late last night, and I was so excited to get started. I washed and conditioned my hair then put some silk in it before I wrapped it in about a million of the smallest sponge rollers you have ever seen!! Lincoln kept telling me that it felt like he was in the 1940's with a wife going to bed with curlers in her hair. When I took out of the rollers this morning, it looked like this.
Yes, I know, I look like Richard Simons. Needless to say, I was a little freaked about what I was going to do about styling it since I was running late to work and having a hairdresser with sausage rolls for hair is not a good look. Luckily, I had a really cool first client who loved the idea of what I was doing and thought the curls were "cute." Right. Once I finished her I was able to run some putty and spray wax through the curls and shake them out a little. Don't ever try to brush your curls!!! Not unless you want a fro. By the end of the day my curls were looking more like this.

I am your friend. I love you dearly, but I don't know about this one. Your first picture made me laugh out loud. The expression on your face and the hair is killing me! Do you still like me? Or have I totally just thrown 14 years of friendship down the drain? I give you major props for trying something new! Maybe I'll like it tomorrow. Just give me some time. Okay, see? The second picture is already growing on me. It's cute.

I love it. I also laughed a little too, but hey, it's not a hairstyle you see everyday. I think you pulled it off, though, you brave girl.

Very fun! Crazy, but fun.

Dear former stylist and long lost friend, I would really appreciate if you would post something about how to curl your hair with a flat iron.

Sincerely,

Meg

Fact: I used to Irish Dance and wasn't too keen on the curls, but nowadays dancers just wear wigs ;)
