Pinned Up Sides

Hello everyone!  I can finally say that my hair is getting long enough that I can pin back the sides to get a different look.  I tucked rolled the sides and pinned them down.  Of course I added a flower!  I wouldn't be me if I didn't wear a flower.  This look was inspired by Naturally Curious Midsummer Romance look.  Now I don't have the length she has to loosely twist the front or to do the pinned curls in the back, but I did my version on the length I have.  It came out nice on me and I do want to give her credit for inspiring me to do something different with my hair.








Below is the same look, but with my quick finger coils.  I used my Denman brush to help me get these curls.

















I did get a picture of my niece wearing a twist out.  You may say "how come she couldn't get a better picture?".  Well this darling six year old decided that she didn't want to pose of any more pictures so, I had to sneak pictures of her when she wasn't paying attention.  I liked her twist out, but she wouldn't let me play with her hair any more.  Eating ice cream and playing were at the top of her to do list, so I relented with just a quick shot of her.
Twist out on my niece.

I spent about 40 minutes twisting my hair and I will decide before I go to work if I will wear my twists, do a twist out, or start over and do a wash n go.  Before I go to bed Monday I will try to take some pictures of my twists and if I wear a twist out I will take pictures.  Until next time...
Blessings!

    3. I completely agree! Living in MN and experiencing 6 months of cold, my flowers remind me that it will be warm again.

    1. Thank you! The blush is a bronzer or blush from Iman called After Glow. I just apply it to my cheeks for a little glow.
