This week's style developed out of a desire to find a 100% protective style, and keep the hair out of Ms. V's face! While it's simple in theory (flat rope twists in a "burst" pattern on top of her head, box twists in the back) it took longer than I had anticipated. Those twists came out smaller than I meant for them to, and it took us nearly 3 movies to complete this one. We kept on twisting right through naptime.
What I'll do differently next time: The ear-to-ear part will need to be moved back another inch - those flat twists "tails" keep flipping forward.
Anyway. It's a sweet style, and it's fun to change up her look from week to week. My husband remarked this week that her face seems to change with each new look - this week included. It's true. Half the fun of styling is seeing the personality it evokes!
These "style" photos were taken while V was still in the styling chair (read: high chair), with her styling clothes on (read: pajamas), with her styling diversions still in place (read: yogurt still all over her face!).
