Don't ask me! Mind ended up crooked. But seriously, don't be afraid to try something new and fun. The beauty of hair is that it grows back.
A couple things I did learn:
Start long...you can't add length but you can keep trimming
If you find a tutorial online that tells you to twist your hair first, DON'T listen.
and finally, although it worked out okay, this decision should probably not be made on a whim at 12:30 am.
