Hey guys! This wedding week has been a bit different from my usual weeks where it's been so mixed in with other posts here on the blog, but I hope that you don't mind and that you've been enjoying the tutorials that I've been posting! This is one of my favorites when I'm going for a more 'sleek' look for a night out or anything fancier for that matter, and it also just so happens to be the perfect anchor up-do for a big veil! :)
This is definitely one that will look better the more hair that you have, so if you have shorter than medium length hair you might want to clip in those extensions to give yourself more hair to wrap with. Keep in mind that (though it doesn't look like it) I have pretty thin hair! So if your hair is shorter but thick you'll be just fine.
Tools & Supplies:
dry shampoo // fine-toothed comb // hair-tie // bobby pins // hairspray
Steps 1-3: Start by loosening up the hair from your scalp, and then you're going to separate your hair into three vertical sections by (1) drawing a line from above your temples on either side of your forehead going down and together at the base of your scalp. (2) bring both side sections forward for later. Add some serum to the top if you want additional smoothness and shine. (3) Brush the middle section back with a fine toothed comb.
Steps 4-6: Secure at the base of your neck with a hair-tie, only (4) leaving a small loop in your hair the last time through the hair-tie. Take the extra hair you may have left, (5) lump it up, and shove it inside the loop to give it fullness. (6) Fan out the sides of the loop and pin them to your scalp.
Steps 7-9: (7) Split your side sections in half, comb through the front of the left one and (8) wrap it back around the bun clockwise, (9) pinning to secure. Repeat the same thing with the front right section, going over and around the bun going counterclockwise. alternate back to the back left section and the back right section, pinning them all into the bun. Spray your whole head with some hairspray, and you're all done!
Again another style that doesn't require any heat, and even if you have very naturally curly hair it would still look beautiful and textured! You can also get a very intricate look without spending much more than 10 or 15 minutes on your hair, and that's a win-win all around. Just make sure that you have a two way mirror so you can see the back of your head! That'll really help in the wrapping process.
Anyway's thanks for visiting, and I hope you come back every day this week because I have lots of goodies and surprises in store! Also feel free to leave any feedback, I LOVE to hear your thoughts on my styles, or anything else for that matter! Have a great evening, and I'll see you tomorrow:)
