The DIY Middy

As mentioned in my last post I grabbed my scissors last weekend and, following the instructions by C-Dot, ended up with something like a longer middy. Until today I was a bit scared that I had done something wrong as none of my sets turned out ok, but after putting my hair in pin curls for nearly 24 hours I was relieved this morning:

Before I did any brushing. A lovely bouncy mess.
Also before breakfast, thatswhy no lipstick.

The back, also before brushing. It really has a u-shape. I wasn´t
sure before I took the picture.

All brushed and styled and filled with oat flakes ;).
Conclusion: If you want the middy look without spending much money then diy is your way. There´s little chance that you ruin anything. I can say that because I shouldn´t use any sharp objects at all because it mostly ends with blood everywhere and I still managed to get it right obviously. I also took pictures of it right after the cut but 2 days ago my laptop spontaneously decided to delete itself and everything I did over the last weeks was gone into nowhere...including lots of work stuff that I now have to do all over again to get everything done in time...meep.

Enjoy your weekends, ladies!


  1. well done! it looks awesome! It came out really lovely and your set looks perfect!

  2. Well done, brave girl!

    And by the way, your blog is nominated :-)

  3. Looks fabulous. Lots of ladies comment on having to relearn their setting patterns when they get the middy. I know when I first started setting my hair it was not a success every time.
    Well done!

  4. Is there any way to see this C-Dot's method of doing the middy? I can't find it anywhere.

    1. Hi there,
      it once existed on the Fedora Lounge forum (, but it´s been some years since then and the pictures have been deleted at one point. Maybe the written instructions are of help for you. If not I´m really sorry that I can´t give you a better answer :(.


    2. I never thanked you, since I never signed in. But thank you! Studying it really helped. I have a method that works for me.
