To begin, you need some curls at the top of the head. I used Curlformers (more on these in the future), but you can use rag curls or a curling iron to achieve the same effect. I left them in overnight, and just used six.
Lilla Rose is having a Mother's Day sale this week, FYI. They have a new clip for moms and free shipping. I got this fairy flexi-clip from them, and I love it! (They aren't paying me to say that, by the way.)
