hair adventures : pin curls

pin curls.

i tried these last night, after taking out my heidi braid. i ran out of bobby pins about halfway through, and then ran around the house looking for more.  they are pretty easy (a little difficult with layered hair) but much more comfortable to sleep in than foam rollers. and i didn’t take a before picture of this, even though it wasn’t that bad looking, because it was late at night and because clara stole the tripod.

so here is an after picture. looove how this looks. thanks, amy, for taking a picture of me.

also, love how it mostly curls the end and not up top so much. it makes wearing it down so much easier. that probably will vary for your hair length.

heidi braids + my outfit today

second time trying these actually, but the first time for it to work. i need to figure out the best way to do the bobby pins, and make it less messy, but i really like this.

i found this shirt in my melisssa’s drawer. she found it at a clothing exchange.

clara took our tripod with her to beach camp, so for these i just set my camera on a shelf or dresser.

christmas party

getting ready.

my stuff on the floor.  after we got there.

the look. curly hair.  gray dress [thrifted.] red shoes [thrifted.] black belt [borrowed.] white cardigan [borrowed.] turquoise necklace [from mom.] someone told me i looked like audrey hepburn, which made me happy.  and i used casey’s nikon d200 to photograph the kids christmas play.  that made me happy too.  and my friends made me happy.

me and daddy

terri’s pie.  the prettiest one, but it didn’t get eaten because it came later than the store-bought ones, and those got cut up and put on tables first.

^ it’s like dying your hair, but not, because it’s still totally natural.  and looks like that.
