Her hair is chin length and full of soft finger waves. There is a side part and bangs are combed across the top of the forehead and styled with twists that turn back and forth for a true old fashioned appeal. Her dark blonde mane is sprinkled with lighter highlights and a touch of pink to add a trendy spunk.
