Prepping for the big night!
Finally on Saturday night the big day was here. To prepare for it, Naomi took a quick bath and a little nap (which she couldn’t get out of on account of the late night ahead). But before she took a nap we tie her hair up with rags from an old t-shirt.
It was so simple & the curls have lasted until today–reveal: we’re not daily bathers.
How to make the curls:
With wet/damp hair, take 2×2″-ish sections of hair. Wind the hair around a 3×1″-ish piece of cotton rag, winding toward the scalp. Tie at the top keeping the hair wrapped around. Repeat until all sections of hair are wound.
Let the curls totally dry. Sleeping helps kill time. I would do them the night before trips to town or other fancy events:
Untie, unwind and enjoy!
It is even more adorable under a bonnet!
… and while cutting your pancake at the Flying Biscuit!
Look fabulous with the whole group. Aunts, grandmas and great grandmas…
It was surely a great time, made more special with the curls. I wouldn’t expect to see any mention of this new musical at the Tony’s or anything, but it is surely fun.
AANNDDD WAY more fun than the stomach bug that greeted us as soon as we got home…ugh.
