long and windblown
a perm gone wrong,
a shade to go with the dress?

fixed them at the top of the head
and the sides,
tightened and tucked in any stray strands.

A bead fixed loosely with string.
Finally, I added a blush with a red pencil.
We are nearing the end of this tutorial for the basics. I hope you have enjoyed seeing the portrait grow, and maybe have had or will have a go yourself. The perfect way to use up those small pieces of scrap fabric.
A request for millinery has come in. So I will make one more tutorial part, for making hats.
This will be posted on Monday.
Then I will in future add further tutorials for many more hairstyles, hats, clothing....
