Previously my hair was 6-7" long. Now I'm down to 4 1/2" on the top and sides. The back of the neck is 3 1/2" long, just enough to wrap once around a small roller.
I still follow the same setting pattern as I did when my hair was longer. All rollers are all rolled down, none on the crown of my head.
Needless to say, I do not look like Elizabeth Taylor, but I am enjoying the shorter length. The curls hold a little better than before and brush out nicely into soft waves between sets. I may do away with the blonde highlight and go a couple shades darker for the Winter. Next Summer...platinum!! Just kidding.
