What you need:
2 long hair rats the same color as your hair.
Lots of bobby pins
Grab a front and slightly off to the side section of your hair and wrap it around your hair rat. Roll it up tightly until it sits securely on your scalp. Bobby pin it into place and then gently seperate your hair along and up the sides of the rat until it is covered. Bobby pin, bobby pin, bobby pin! Mine needed a little more covering on the very top, but it wasnt as noticeable in real life as this picture shows.
Roll your remaining hair over the second hair rat at the nape of your neck, again seperating the hair and pulling it along the rat until it is all covered. Bobby pin until very secure. Then hairspray till you know that baby is not going to move...ever! I added a little flower at the back, but it certainly doesn't need any more visual interest.
Be prepared to be told NUMEROUS times how FABULOUS you look. In fact, you will *almost* be sick of being told how FABulous you are. Just make sure you have your eyebrows plastered in place and mascara on....unlike me.
