Pin Curls

Pin Curls

For my girls, grade 5 seems to have represented the stage in which they wanted to really self-express through hair and clothing choices.

My younger daughter Katherine came home from her cousin’s house this summer with the ends of her hair dip-dyed bright red (they used Kool-Aid!) and just loved it. Lately, she’s taken to sleeping with her hair braided in order to benefit from the kink that undoing the braids will leave behind when removed in the morning.

This week, we tried pin curls. They turned out so nicely – although Katherine wasn’t bold enough to enjoy the curls full-bounce, I managed a picture of it up in a ponytail.

Although full of opinions, I often find myself nodding and smiling. Don't you? Doesn't mean I agree. I'm just being polite.
