After my last post & seeing Bug with her long hair & curls, it made me itch to put her hair in Curlformers to see what the result would be. Now that we’ve discovered she has a bit of natural curl in her hair, I was worried that the curls would turn out a bit funky or they might have a mind of their own.
So Saturday night we put them in so she’d hopefully have a pretty head of curls for church on Sunday. To be quite honest I was a bit nervous! Silly, but I was. I used our 16 long & wide Curlformers, and some wide & extra long ones that I have as well. I think I had a total of 20 curlers in her hair. The most I’ve ever used probably. Ironic since she now has short hair – but I wanted to use a lot smaller sections.
Sunday morning, I pulled them out, and things seemed to be looking good. Needless to say I was relieved! Once I got them all I out, I separated the ringlets a bit since I prefer to not have them bunched into individual ringlets as much.
So – a quick trip back in time … These were the curls I was itching for & missing so much ….
And these were the curls I got …. As always, they turned out fabulous. Were they shorter? Of course. But were they just as fabulous? Oh yes. I felt like I had a little Shirley Temple walking around my house. She looked so stinkin’ cute. I had so many people come and tell me how cute she looked.
We just let the curls “be.” With curls like this all I wanted was an accessory & I thought her hair would speak for itself! And, well, it did! I did, however, pull one little section of hair back and bobby pinned it but not anything much to write about! We just got this darling headband & clip from Gimme Clips and it added the perfect touch to tie it all together. They’ve got a fun “Mix & Match” line of headbands where you can switch headbands & flowers to work with whatever you are wearing. Perfect for any occasion or outfit. The headband was black so it hid in the curls & then the flower with the bling just added the splash of color we were looking for against her darker hair. Gimme Clips has got such a wide variety of clips, headbands, beanies, and other fun accessories, you will always find something that will look darling in your dd’s hair.

She was so excited that the curls turned out & that she could “bounce” around everywhere she walked all day! She definitely had a spring in her step! LOL Simply beautiful. So the verdict is — long or short hair – my heart still belongs to Curlformers. One of these days I’m going to have to try them on myself …
Best part is, this morning when she woke up, there was still plenty of curl left over and so we had more darling curls today. I’ll share that tomorrow.
