Six Month Celebration

Wow, I can't believe how time passes, it seems like yesterday when I got my SL's installed! As previously posted I have a few bunching issues and I recall someone that wrote to the LockItUp group and advised us to run out and get the Caruso steam rollers because they were being discontinued. Well, I did and I used them as an experiment the same night I bought them........ I loved them!! The curlers camouflaged the bunching and I actually have loose curls that flow a little as indicated in these pics. I used the larger rollers to achieve this look, like I said, it was an experiment and I plan to continue working with the styles. These are my beginner Caruso pics and it only took about 15 minutes to do it, not bad huh?

This week, BlaqKofi, Karen and I signed up for the retightening class on December 9th with instructor GiGi. We are so excited to get together and encourage one another. I know I'll need help with the patterns because I don't' have a clue of how they work. I'm sure we will do fine and I'll bet it will be entertaining as well!!

Also, this week I've had the honor of chatting directly with Kristian Alexis Perry, originator of Brothers_locked group. Chantal hooked us up and it has been a true blessing to receive advice from him regarding bunching. Kristian went through the same bunching process as we both have almost identical hair type and have you seen his hair lately??? He obviously knows what he is doing? (shown below left) So, I'd like to send a special shout out to Chantal and Kristian for their "support" with my bunching trial!! LockItUp group has put me in touch with such wonderful and sincere people and for that I'd also like to send out a special thanks to Sandy, again!

You look fantastic!! This curly look is really cute. I've gotta try these curlers too.

I don't think I would have lasted this long without Kristian's sage advice.

LaChanda that is so cute. I really wish now I had run out and gotten a set of those curlers. I will have to find an alternative.

Happy Six Month Anniversary!
You are working those Caruso Steam Rollers! I love them and in fact have three sets (to get all the roller sizes that I want). Looking at your beautiful curls makes me want to break out a set and curl my locks!
