My hair has never held a curl before. N.E.V.E.R. Plus, I don't even know how to properly use a blow-dryer. (Can you see how sad my teen years must have been?)
Grosgrain featured this tutorial, and you MUST try it out! It's super easy, comfortable, and looks adorable (I think!)
I washed my hair in the morning and let it mostly dry (dry, but still just wet enough to have some body), then ran a blob of mousse through (especially the ends) and tucked and tucked and tucked it around my headband. I used a bit of hair spray to make sure it didn't unravel, and left it in till the next morning.
Also, if you happen to be around the princess-loving set while your hair is up...they will LOVE it. Ernie is considering growing out her hair, just to have it up "fancy" like mine. Knowing how much she loathes brushing her hair, that's quite a compliment! You know, if you're into compliments from five-year-olds. (Which I am.)
