WoolHairHabit inspired install....*UPDATED PIC*

Post by MrsEss » Thu Nov 12, 2009 4:15 pm

NEW PIC ON PAGE 2


After seeing WoolHairHabit's latest show off I was inspired to go for a colinette install. I PM'd her & got some tips, so here is my "homage" to the wool:

I used One Zero in: Lapis, Florentina & Neptune

I think I used 2 full Skeins - I have colour left from each one I used, so I could be wrong. I used 2 strands for round the undercut/hairline & 4 strands everywhere else. I have no idea how many sections there are....It took 7 hours in total, possibly due to the small sections.

I love it!!! It's really full, yet incredibly light (I've only ever used colinette .5 for falls in the past) I can knot it, plait it, bun it & is smooshy like roving.

:D

7 hours! :shock:

I like it though, the colours are nice and I love how full it looks from the back even though you have a high undercut :D

Very nice indeed! A beautiful colour combination you chose there, and I agree it looks REALLY full. 7 hours very well spent methinks ;) xx

Aw shucks this is SO flattering :D

I absolutely love what you have done; the colours are immense and you have made a beautiful job of it. Do you agree with me on the benefits of One Zero over Point Five? Wonderfully full without being bulky, but most people probably wouldn't notice any difference.

Seriously nice work, I am off now to swell with pride at being an inspiration.
:D
What, that? It's a spade.

That is THE bestest ever! I am uber jealous of your skill and color picking. Oh man, I want a wooly install now too! Too bad it took 7 hours--WHOA! Let us know how it "holds up" over time.

I love Colinette colours and the ones you've chosen are so yummy! =) Your braiding is so neat too, it adds to the effect.

Nice! It's amazing how full it looks with your undercut. I bet it's super comfortable too :D You look like you're loving it. Great color combo :D

Yes yes and yes again, that is some serious commitment to do 7 hours, but it looks perfect... and you look stunning - especially on the last picture you are blooming!!! :D
