First full set of DEs *huge pics*

Post by Lamie » Thu Jan 12, 2012 8:31 pm

It has been a long road but I finally finished my first full set. I definitely see some flaws, especially with the ends. A few are uneven. I guess maybe those things just come with practice? Anyway, your comments and criticisms are always appreciated!

They look really good! Well done :D

I personally prefer colour hints to be on the underneath of the hair with maybe a few at the sides.

These look wonderful!

I definitely agree with the install tips, and of course be sure to braid down the blond side. :lol:

A few in the left bunch look like that could use a tiny bit more backcombing, but besides that they really look great!

these are great! i love how the taper is a bit thicker, personally i don't like dreads with a really long, thin taper. these are just right!
