Just found the password, sorry, a bit slow this evening. I think it looks great! It shows off your curls really well and may I add you have beautifully shaped eyebrows.
About the middle part, did you read the Curly Girl Handbook and see that "straw set" part? Where the girl used little pieces of straws to set her curls where she wants them? I wonder if that would do anything for you as far as setting your curls where you want them? I love that girls hair too.
Your hair looks fabulous!! Thanks for sharing.
