Veil Style on Three Heads
I apologize up front for the poor quality of the pictures in this post. I was not at home and didn't have my camera with me, so these pictures were taken with a phone.
Syd and I went to relative's house the other day and I ended up with 3 girls (Syd included) wanting their hair done. I made it easy on myself and chose a simple style, and then I did that same style on all three girls.
I settled on a basic veil style for the girls. I parted out three boxes across the front of their heads. Each box in the front row is gathered into a rubberband and split into 2 braids. Then I parted out a row of four boxes behind the row of three. The braids from the front row are brought back and joined with the hair from the second row.
After finishing that part, the rest of the older girl's hair was put into twists. She is growing out her pretty damaged hair, so I twisted her hair in order to give her curls a uniform look. She is only wearing the twists overnight so she can have a twist out for school in the morning. Sadly, I don't have a picture of the twist out, since I won't see her again for a week.
Next was Syd's hair. The back of her hair is in twists, too, but she'll probably keep the twists in for a few days and then wear the resulting twist out for a few more days.
The younger girl's hair wasn't twisted. She has thin hair with a looser curl pattern and it looks AMAZING with just a little bit of product. I added some Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk and she was good to go.
It was kind of fun doing the same style on three girls with three different hair types and lengths, but it reminded me just how much hair Syd has. Her hair took so long compared to the other two girls with shorter, thinner hair!
In the end, all three girls were pleased with their styles. And the more I think about it, the more I realize that making three girls (ages 10, 11, and 13) happy with the same style is kind of like a small miracle. LOL!
