Oh, I love Rapunzel's Resource! I have attempted the first and last hairstyles so far. The first one actually turned out pretty well, but my layers were sticking out all over the place, so I've decided not to to try it again until they grow out. For the last style, I put it together before bed and left the curlers in over night with a bandana wrapped around my head to keep it neat. The only problem was that the ringlets were too short, so next time I attempt it, I'll leave a full foot of hair out to curl instead of six inches. I'll let you know how it turns out if I ever get to it :)

I've done the curly bun. I wore it for two days and my hair still didn't fully dry inside, so when I took it out I had more waves than curls but I loved the huge bun. Rapunzel's Resource is one of my favorite hair blogs.

Rapunzel's Resource is one of the hair blogs I visit regulary, too!
I love the flower/curly bun and I want to try them out - I have seen a similar style on a picture, worn a little bit higher on the head, it looks gorgeous... of course I can't find the picture although I have been searching for more than an hour... :angry:

I tried the curl method today. Loverly curls! Too bad they were still wet wakeing up, so they only held of 3 hours.

My hair doesn't usuly hold any wave. :D

Just lovely! I would not be able to do the pin rolls, as my hair is fine and thin and slippery. It would end up being a sad mess without massive use of shellac-type hairspray and teasing, as I've found from experience. The shell bun is awesome and probably doable for me, though.

What a wonderful site! It really seems like a great resource for most every skill level. Although, for some reason, I don't own any curlers, so I will have to pick some up for this!

:confused: Can anyone explain to me how she does the rolled bumps?? Is it with elastic and pins? or just elastic or clip ? Does she actually roll the hair around or is it just a bump?

I just can't figure it out from the pictures. The hair styles are great. :) I wouldn't mind trying them on for size. :D

I love her blog! I don't think I'm ever going to grow my hair as long as hers though.
