Since Marietta got a post of her hair guess it's only fair to show our attempt at Rebecca's as well. Here she is wearing it with the tiara that she is suppose to wear for the wedding ... it's drowning in all that hair! :) Marietta was able to keep her hair in for a week after I braided it. Half a week and then we washed it and rerolled it and it was good for the rest of the week. I probably could have left it a bit longer but it was starting to get fuzzy ... much to her disappointment.
Since Rebecca's hair is a lot longer I could do all five braids right to the middle and then roll it ... and she still had more curls on top when she was done then Marietta had with her part braids (thick hair vs. thin hair). This means that if (when) the curl comes out we can just do some sort of ponytail or hair clips in the middle and not have to reroll it again. Unfortunate for her I ran out of mousse when I did hers, so it wasn't as caked and has gotten fuzzy faster, so it will likely come out tonight ... if I can convince her ...she doesn't have to go anywhere special the next few days so it doesn't really matter if she has fuzzy braids. I can't imagine having the same hair-do for 4 days and not having extremely greasy hair ... must be nice.
