SJP Big Hair!

I have always been an admirer of Sarah Jessica Parker's hair. It is big and messy and beautiful and I love it. It is freeing not to wear your hair perfectly coiffed. It doesn't have to be perfect, just embrace it and rock it.  So I have been wanting to try her styles for a while and I just thought I would go for it.  Here is what I came up with.

I washed my hair last night and put them into little buns all over my head.  I twisted them so the hair would be back from my face, the same way I would have curled it if I were using an iron.  I think you can use an iron, but that takes longer and I like the idea of no heat in less time.
There is just no reason these pictures should be bigger... You get the idea.
Then this morning I woke up and took them out.  My one-year-old was eyeing my funny as I came into the room with a bun on top of my head, but hey, the price of beauty!
I took it out and it was a big afro!!  Like big, I didn't get a picture, I wish I would have.
So I threw it in a pony to wash up and put my makeup on and when I took it down, it was just big and crazy curls!!
So another no heat curls way to do your hair!!  Another thing I have been doing lately is trying not to wash my hair in less than 3 days.  Unless it is really nasty.  It is healthier and some styles do better on the 2nd and 3rd days.  So I will use my fro-curls for two more days!
What did you do to your hair today?  Something a bit creative?  Snap a picture and link up Friday for my Creative Hair linky party!!

Oh and until I get my act together and clean up my linky party page, I am linking to all the parties here.

Wow, I gotta say I'm impressed by doing all of those buns, and the end result was fabulous!

During her Sex & the City days, I absolutely loved SJP's big crazy curls! I always tried to recreate them, but couldn't quite get the look. (That was when my hair was quite a bit longer. lol)

You look gorgeous!! I love the pink shorts and turquoise necklace. Together with the white top, it's such a great summery outfit!

Nice! I bet this would work on shorter hair to (albeit not quite as well).
