Going kinky!



With my hair, that is ;)


This is what my hair looks like if I don't blow it out and let it dry naturally -- well, "natural" being a relative term...I repeatedly scrunch it up with my hands while it's wet and once it is finally dry I add about 5 or 6 random pin curls using a small barrelled curling iron, just to make it look more even.



This style can be fragile and fickle -- humidity, high winds and active small children can wreak havoc on my doo when it's done this way. But once in a while I get the urge to go kinky, you know?


The cardi is NY&Co. the tee is JC Penney. Distressed jeans are Target as well as the green platform wedge sandals. The necklace is from Kohls, not sure where the bracelets are from.

Have a great day!

I LOVE your hair like this! It would also look lovely with the curls pinned up a little. Gorgeous!

EEEEE! As a fellow curly girl, I've gotta second that emotion: Adore your locks like this.

Your hair looks lovely like this. It is very youthful! You should wear it like this more often! As someone with very curly hair, I have accepted mine and even like it - in fact I find it easier to manage curly!

So cool to see your hair like this K! Totally gorgeous and feminine. Actually your length and texture reminds me of mine. But I must say your curls are much much prettier! Thanks for sharing this.

Thanks everyone!

notSupermum, wow, thanks so much...you know, I've never been much good at putting my hair up but a friend of mine used to do it for me when I was younger, I did like it, too :)

Sal, lol, thanks! It's funny, I would never say I actually had curly hair, just VERY wavy...some of those curls are thanks to a curling iron, but my hair does hold them well, so I'm lucky I guess. Your hair is truly curly, and truly lovely :)

Mervat -- thank you! And youthful, well now, I think I may just have to where my hair like this more often indeed, lol :D Oh, and I'm following your blog too (which is WONDERFUL, btw!!!)

Trace -- aww, thanks, and I told you we had similar hair ;) Really, when I saw that pic of you your hair reminded me of mine too. And don't forget, while the waves are me some of those curls are added (small barrelled curling iron is the key, that and placing only a handful of them randomly) But really, I think your waves are MUCH nicer than mine...they looked really even and full :)

Diane -- thanks! And you know, with all this fuss I am definitely going to take all of your advice and do my hair like this more often! Another wonderful thing about blogging stuff like this, you really get an idea of how other people see ya, so different sometimes from looking in a mirror.

Thanks again everyone!!!!
