OK, I'm all set to start tomorrow. New fotki album all set with reference length pics and all that.

Curlynikki, I used your scrunchie version of a sock bun for a military gig earlier today, and it really worked well. It felt so much nicer than the traditional sock bun, and it still looked fine. No annoying hair pulling at my nape either! I have another gig tomorrow, so I'll use it again to start my challenge, although I may switch to your double scrucnhie bun afterwards since that one is even more comfortable. I just can't wear that big of a bun in uniform, lol.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
