Goodness those recommendations go into a whole world of scary hairstyling that I know nothing about. Sectioning? Rollers? "Just roll into a messy pleat". i know the advice wasn't for me but yiu make me think I should be more educated about this stuff!

J, I'm still rubbish with older children but you learn on the job. I now know how to talk to 0 uo to 2.75 year olds :)

I never used to know how to use rollers, then I had to do that photoshoot thing in November and I decided to put my hair in rollers to look like a 50s housewife- channelling my nan when she was my age, basically. I bought three packs of medium rollers from Superdrug and realised they're really simple to use. You just, well, roll the hair on them, and most of them come with a ball and string thing to fix the roller in place.

As for rolling into a pleat, it's really just more rolling, but usually vertically along the back of the head. I guess I had years of nearly waist-length hair and various customer-service jobs where hair has to be away from your face, so I've got used to doing these updos and I forget they're not easy without a bit of practice. People get obsessed with making them look all smooth, which is tricky, but I think they look better a bit messy.

Sectioning is just when you clip bits of the hair out of the way to style other bits.

I would be happy to do a demo on you if you like! Or maybe I should do a step-by-step thing on my LJ. But barnacle is getting sick of taking photos for me!
