Oh my goodness, I'm in love too That hairstyle is so pretty! And it suits you so well. The pink ribbon sets off wonderfully against your hair color.

Now you are tempting me to try hair taping myself... I've seen Torrin's video, but have never had the proper incentive to do it on myself. Till now, that is What kind of needle did you use to sew the ribbon into your hair?







Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic
Primary goal: thickening the ends

Hair journal:
http://www.network54.com/Forum/663765

Routine:
- NW/SO on the scalp, with periodical length
washes (Alverde birke-salbei shampoo for the length)
- brushing, scritching, preening and massaging daily
- occasional S&D trims
- trimming the ends whenever they start looking funny
Hair type: 2b/M/C/iii
Current length: classic+
Current goal: knee

Current routine:
~ alternating a NW/SO (no water/sebum only) routine with occasional washes. I use the techniques of NW/SO (brushing, scritching and preening) almost daily, but I do a shampoo wash every month or two.

Products and tools:
~ Alverde Birke-Salbei shampoo
~ occasionally oiling the ends with either coconut or almond oil; currently experimenting with argan oil
~ an assortment of BBBs
~ Tangle Teezer/Tangle Angel & wide-tooth comb
~ hair friendly hair toys, for putting up hair and forgetting about it

I just did that to my hair a few days ago too! But I think yours is nicer looking than mine! Mine made my face look fat! LOL

I actually read about it on a costuming website; I hadn't seen the video.

I used a big plastic darning needle with a blunt point and a large eye; they might be called "yarn darning needles" or something like that. I imagine you could use a metal one too, if the point was blunt enough.

I'll try to find plastic needles of that kind. I will be better off with plastic, rather than metal, if only for my peace of mind. I can be very clumsy, so plastic is much safer
