Welcome to my Hime Gyaru Hair Tutorial!
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HIME GYARU HAIR TUTORIAL HAS BEEN UPDATED HERE. The version below is achieved by teasing your hair, if you don’t want to tease it click here for the other version. This is also only one way to do this style. I have done several others so please check the tutorial section for videos etc.
Please note that there are a LOT of photos so dial-up users beware!
This tutorial is just for the the way that I do my hair, there are several other ways to do this but this is one way that it works for me. I have done several other posts on hime gyaru hair tutorials.
Without further ado…
To start off you should have clean hair, brush all of the knots out of it and make sure it’s dry.
Now get your materials together. You need a nice hair brush, a can of hair spray (I LOVE Sunsilk Super Hold)
Now let’s get started!
Brush your fringe forward and the rest of you hair backwards as if you were going to put it in a pony tail.
Now put your fingers at the tops of your ears and work them through your hair until they meet at the top. Basically what you should be doing is separating a section of hair that is about one inch thick. Pull it upwards and hold on to it for a moment.
Now is the fun part! Tease the section you’re holding until it’s massive! To tease the hair you brush it from the tips to the roots so it turns into a big knotty mess.
Now curl it backwards over on itself. It should look like a big fluffy tube from the side. If you want don’t get it right the first time just tease it up some more and try again. Remember the bigger the better!
Once you are happy with the positioning you should use your hairspray! Don’t scrimp on the spay, if you want it to stay up all day then it needs to be sturdy. If you find that it shape isn’t roughly what you want then you can squish it into shape and add more spray, it doesn’t need to be perfect because we’re going to cover it with hair. Sexy huh?
From the inch of long hair at the front take a section at the top/middle of your head and brush it straight upwards. This section should be wide enough to cover a good part of the quiff.
Now make sure you have a bow or some flowers handy to cover up all those ugly bobby pins in the back! Just pin it straight into the quiff, if you make sure to pin through the teased part it won’t go anywhere even on the windiest, rainiest, craziest day where you’re stuck on a train with your head in some guy’s sweaty armpit and you’ll be all ready for that photoshoot for Jesus Diamante!
If you want, you can add hair extensions, I love them but I don’t wear them every day. Too cute!
Have fun brushing it all out! Let me suggest this, don’t just dry brush it… GET LEAVE IN CONDITIONER! This will help de-tangle it. Also you should make sure to wash and condition the hair afterward or give it a moisture treatment! If you wear your hair like this often it really needs it!
I would love to see photos of you wearing Hime Gyaru style hair! Let me know what you thought of this tutorial 🙂
