playing dress up

One thing this 80’s girl loves,

is hair.   I’m always looking for fun, stylish ways to wear my hair.  So, it’s no wonder that I can’t get enough of the hair tutorials at The Small Things blog.

Today, I decided to try the “side front twist”.

So, I went over to Kate’s blog for a little refresher on how to get to look.

Then gave it a whirl.  I already had product and curl in my hair from yesterday.  I don’t wash my hair everyday.

I’m happy with the loose curls

and the volume,

but, the front view isn’t as full as Kate’s.  Nothing a little back comb tease can’t fix.

I do like this soft, beachy wave look, but I think I’m going to go mess with it some more to see if I can get it to look more like Kate’s.

Until next time,



  1. I’ve been wanting to try this too! Maybe this weekend at Haven. Will you be able to make it? I’d love to connect with you in real life (or IRL as bloggers like to say).

  2. I so wish I was going. We are going on vacation this weekend. But I’d love to connect with you IRL 😉 too! We’ll have to figure something out….maybe ichat or skype.

  3. I know it isn’t the esiest to achieve. Good luck with it.
