Hey everyone! I really love #4 in the series, and I hope you do too! These weeks always go by so fast because its just ticking tutorials off one by one till the week's over, and now we're more than haveway done! This is such a fun way to wear your vintage scarves, and this is the fastest style yet this week!
And that's all there is to it, so have a great day! :) Seriously though there's really not much more that I can say about the style other than if you've been wanting to try something retro and pin-up-y but aren't very confident to take one on, this is the style you've been waiting for! You don't have to use a vintage head scarf either, you can for sure use a bandanna or something like it, and it'll work out just great!
- boar bristled teasing comb
- 1 1/2" curling iron
- bobby pins
- strong hold hairspray
- a hair-tie
- clip for holding top back
- headscarf or bandanna
Step #1: Section off your bang section by drawing a half moon (?) from eyebrow to eyebrow and tying it up for later. Brush your hair back into a smooth high ponytail. Pull your hair all the way through the hair-tie twice, then on the last time leave the last several inches of hair in the hair-tie, creating a big loop. Wrap the extra hair around the base of the loop and pin in place. Use half a dozen or so more bobby pins to pinch and secure different parts of the loop, creating a little bumby bun high up on the back of your head. Remember that it doesn't have to be perfect, because it will be mostly covered by your headscarf.
Step #2: Spray well with hair-spray, and move on to the bangs! Bring down the front and work the sides of the section to smooth the flyaway's, then smooth the top and the bottom with a round brush. Clamp the ends of your bang section into your iron and spread the hair the whole length of it. Roll it all the way up to your roots and rub the loos hairs down with the others. Release your hair from the iron by clamping and releasing over and over as you slide the iron out. Now look at your lovely faux bangs!
Step #3: Use a couple bobby pins to secure the them by putting your fingers inside the roll and inserting the pins towards the back. Mold them a little if desired by pinching and tugging the the outsides outward and up slightly. Next take your scarf and double it over from opposite corners.
Step #4: Wrap it around the back of your head with the corners pointing upward. Tie a neat little bow at an angle and tuck the back point down into the rest of the scarf. and you're all done!
I know I always say it, but the best part of doing these hair tutorials is hearing your feedback and thoughts on what you think, what you used it for, how it turned out for you, and of course all the compliments you got when you wore it out! So free to share:)
Thank so much for reading!
