  • I LOVE the cute short crochet style featured on this site and am so disappointed that I didn’t see the video prior to having my hair done last Friday. The look is exactly what I wanted. I also learned that more than one size hair can be used with crochet hairstyles–the stylist I went to was not familiar with the technique.
