Good news! I figured out how to do Irene hair that’s way more canon-accurate in way less time with fewer bobby pins and no heat styling. My process was based off of this YouTube tutorial, which is for longer hair and uses a curling iron, but the curls are possible to twist with only fingers, too.
At some point, when I get comfortable, I might do a modified tutorial for medium-length hair. For now—
It’s tea party time.
