Happy Friday Eve guys! Is that a thing? a few of you sweet people wished that to me last week and I realized it made me excited, because it made the weekend feel like it was already happening! haha Alright I need to get back on track:) Today's hair tutorial was shot like a month ago almost and I posted it on Instagram, so I'm very excited to finally be sharing it with you, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
As per usual with my photo tutorials I go into very descriptive detailing so you'll be sure and get it right the first time (vague tutorials are the worst don't you think?), so don't be intimidated by all the text and photos! This was a style that'd been in my head for a while, but this tutorial was my first time doing it and it only took me about 15 minutes! Also you can probably pull this off if your hair is at least to your shoulders, so if you love it I hope you give it a try!
Tools & Supplies:
teasing comb // pins or clips // hair-tie // bobby pins // 1" curling iron // hairspray
Steps 1-4: Start by choosing a side part above your right eye and smoothing your hair with a teasing brush. Using your new part as a divider, draw a ling with the pointy end of your brush from the top of one ear to the top of the other making two sections, and clipping those up for later. Brush the rest of your hair into a high ponytail, twist it clockwise, spray with hairspray, and twist clockwise around the base to create a bun. Pin down the sides and fluff a bit if desired.
Steps 5-8: Un-clip the right section (should be smaller than the left), and twist it all up into one big curl around your 3/4-1 inch curling iron. tuck it as close to your head as you can, and than start clamping and releasing as you gently tug the iron out of the curl with one hand, keeping it all together with your other hand. Once the iron is totally out, press the curl to your head and pin it in place, leaving the top of the 'tube' in tact and pinning the bottom flat.
Steps 9-12: Separate the left section in half with a horizontal line. Tease the roots of the top half a bit and smooth it with your teasing brush. Spray for hold. Take the bottom half of your section and curl it upwards horizontally around your iron, spray, and do the same clip-and-release technique to get your iron out while maintaining your roll. Pin that in place and move to the top and last section!
Steps 13-16: Smooth both sides of the section with your teasing brush. Curl the hair around your iron again in a nice wide curl, this time curling upwards as well, and repeat the clamping and release cycle to get your iron out for the last time:) Rest the curl directly on top of your first one, and pin it securely in place, from the inside to the outside. Tug some flyaways out a bit if you wish, spray it all down with your favorite hairspray, and you're good to go!
(excuse the deer-in-headlights look:) I needed this angle of the style! haha)
Again I hope that the photos and text make the process more clear and don't confuse you, but feel free to ask any questions at all if you have them! Also since so many people have been asking lately, I've decided to just go ahead and make a little graphic of the tutorial for Pinterest:)
Thanks so much as always for visiting and reading, and I hope you come back again soon!
