    I am saving this to go back to for a few days until I have it down pat! I am so happy to learn something new to do with my hair myself besides the same old ponytail or clip it all up! Thank you so much for your time to teach others different ways they can do themselves to not only look better but to feel better as well. Much gratitude!
