It depends on what kind of Angel hair you are using , but next time try blending the hair as though you were spinning deer hair. Layer on in clumps . White on the bottom, pale blue on top and then little clumps of dark blue on top of the pale blue. A small clump of red on the bottom before the last small clump of white. Pick out with a bodkin till you have a large afro... and ttrim down. The material I am using here is very fine and from Mike Martinek. This way there is no need to use a perminemt marker for the red and no need to put a long strip of angel hair for the topping.
