I finally ordered myself a hairdressing mannequin so that I can experiment at home without constantly having to bug my friends to be guinea pigs! It (she?) arrived today and there was a pretty subtle hint on the box as to what I should call it (her?):
"Angus". It suits her, don't you think? And of course that name will always remind me of this classic Monty Python sketch (my brother and I were practically raised on Monty Python).
Anyway. I figured I might have some fun experimenting and post some of my work on this blog occasionally! Today, after setting Angus up on my dining room table, I did a bit of braiding and came up with something cute.
Simple & classic chignon with a fancy lil' Dutch braid on the side. I do love braiding. If you specifically ask for braids as part of your wedding updo, you'll definitely win my heart! :)
