Luckily, at the weekend, I found a new hair model to play with - my good friend V. She was only too happy to let me experiment on her hair and try out various looks that didn't have quite the same effect on my hair. V has actually done some hair modelling at wedding shows for the hairdresser who did our hair for her wedding last year, so she is the ideal hair model. I always wanted one of those doll heads that you could do hair and make-up on when I was a kid . . . and now I had a human version of one! So we had a lot of fun.
Firstly, I tried out the same hairstyle I tried on myself, with much more success!
After this, we tried out a fishtail braid. This is a style I taught myself how to do YEARS ago (I was about sixteen and learned it from a book) but, once again, I don't think it looks as great on my own hair as on someone with much longer hair. It looked fab on V and we couldn't get over how long her hair looked - she has long hair anyway but it almost gave her the illusion of having even more of it. Very Rapunzelesque.
Then I tried out another Love Maegan style - this was one I hadn't tried before AND hadn't watched the tutorial for, so I did have to improvise and it doesn't look a lot like the original - really you need to look at her own style to see what it SHOULD look like, but I don't think it was that far off. This then encouraged me later to try and develop that style a bit further and use those beginnings to create something a little bit more elaborate.
So I repeated the braiding process with the rest of the hair...
Kinda cool, eh???
And this was a final twist on the whole braiding thang.
I am loving all these dos - just wish they looked this fab on me! I can't wait to check out more hair tutorials - it's great fun!
