Have you ever tried to take a photo of the top of your head? It's really hard fyi.
I have been growing my hair for a year and three months now, in the hopes that I will one day be able to do proper Heidi braids like Jo and Carrie, but it's still to short, woe! I have discovered that I can do a mini version by plaiting just some of the front part of my hair behind my ears, to create a heidi headband, if you like!
I have realised from these photos I need to get some smaller hairpins though - my ones show up really obviously - I didn't realise until I looked at these photos!
