Hello and a happy weekend to everyone!
I just thought I'd share my everyday set with you. This is a really basic but versatile set and I'll show a different look with the same set in the upcoming weeks
So, last night I washed my hair and let it air dry to about 70-80%. I then ran some settling lotion through it, any will do, following the instructions on the bottle.
I then rolled it using my peach perm rods (bought from eBay).
(excuse the tired face, I had absolute ZERO makeup on here, how brave am I posting this! Hah!)
I always part on the left, just at the point where my eyebrow peaks. On the left side I placed two rollers, rolling the hair over the roller(i.e. toward the face). These were fastened slightly off base (i.e. I didn't roll right to the root, to get a 40's look. I did the exact same on the right.
At the top I placed three rollers, rolled over again and away from my parting.
At the back a total of 6 rollers in a brick formation, and only rolled up as far as my ears to prevent the hair on the crown area curling.
I then stuck a glamorous blue hairnet over it all and went to bed. Believe it or not they aren't that hard to sleep in, especially after half a bottle of Rioja!
In the morning I took out all the rollers as gently as possible to keep the curl. In the picture below you can see how much tighter the curl is than with the Caruso curlers used earlier this week (see earlier blog post).
I had partially brushed out the back here.
Once all the curlers were out I brushed gently but thoroughly with a natural bristle brush, pinned back the left side and pushed a wave into the front with my fingers and sprayed it all firmly into place.
Of course, I then had to take the cat to the vets, a 10 minute walk in the drizzle, so now my hair is almost poker straight again. Annoying Autumn weather!
