Today I took my first crack at the Jilbere Hot Roller set I picked up from Sally Beauty Supply.
The process was, um, interesting.
Following the instructions (or at least trying to), I managed to get all of the curlers into my hair without burning anything, yea!
That took about 20 minutes (rolling the top and sides)…
Tabs finds the mystery contraptions suspicious
Just after inserting the last batch of rollers, I removed the first ones, aiming to leave each one in about 20 minutes.
After letting the curls cool for a couple minutes, I ran my fingers through everything to break them up.
That resulted in this:
Observe the extra six inches of horizontal width on my head. Kinda like Bon Jovi circa 1986 (SIDE NOTE: I’ve been listening to Dead or Alive all day long).
I was going to give the curls some time to relax, but I started snapping pictures because I couldn’t resist.
For the Urban Decay Show Pony face of the day, I pulled the top half back and fastened it with a claw clip.
I wanna hug the guy/girl who invented the claw clip!
Of course, I forgot it was there and left it in for an hour, but when I removed it — TADA! — unintentionally loose curls.
I like the way this turned out, but DAGNABBIT it took a long time — MUCH longer than I expected. The reason I got the curlers was to save time getting ready in the morning (versus using a curling iron). Yup…
Maybe I just need more practice.
If I get anything done this weekend, I hope it involves getting a Christmas tree. Are you getting one this year?
And hopefully I can squeeze in a trip to Sephora…
What are you doing this weekend? Anything that involves makeup?
