Well, the night before, I braided my hair, using Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter. Then I spritzed it with some distilled water and curled the ends on rods. Then I went to sleep. When I woke up, I had things to do, but left my hair nice and wrapped. I took it down an hour before the party and unraveled each braid, finger fluffed, and added a cute flower from Forever21. The end....simple...and well....I worked it!
