Curly Updo.jpg

Submitted on Saturday, December 19th, 2009 by hauptaj

These photos were actually taken in a salon with my cell phone, so they're not the best quality. I did the prep work on the curls myself. I used BotticelliBotanicals gelee when my hair was soaking wet, scrunched dried a bit then applied pink Boots and Batia and Aleeza mineral gel then diffused dried a bit but did not scrunch out the crunch (thanks to the Boots, it wasn't that crunchy) then went to the salon. The stylist left my curls as they were and just pinned them back into a low square chignon. When my hair is down it is about shoulder length. We added a pretty rhinestone comb to the side and tied about 4 different kinds of trim that I had bought from a fabric store. I think the result was very sophisticated. Everyone at the salon loved my curls!
