Practice DOES make perfect. ;) Was your hair washed right before you tried it? Sometimes that makes it harder to work with.

I tried this and it did not work very well.

Emma | Emmaline Bride June 29, 2013 - 7:53 pm

L, give it another try! I had trouble my first few times, but eventually did get the hang of it. Good luck!
