As promised here is a tutorial on how to do the big poufy curly style up-do thingy that I’ve been wearing a lot lately ^_^
Apologies for how tired I look in these photos, I really wasn’t feeling well but I wanted to get the tutorial finished for you guys >_< I’ve been quite stressed lately so I haven’t been sleeping much!So what you need:
First thing’s first, pin your fringe to the side to keep it out of the way.
Brush out your remaining hair so there are no knots.
Apply heat protector spray. Very important step so you don’t damage your hair at all ^_^
Heat up your straightener or whatever you are planning to use to curl your hair.
Btw I’m wearing my new blue lenses from E-Circlelens.netin these photos, the full review is coming soon but I’m excited because I haven’t used blue ones before 😀
So anyway! Curl the bottom 1/3rd of your hair. You don’t need to make the the curls perfectly even or very good because they are all going to get mushed up anyway.
Like this is fine:
Continue until you’ve done all of your hair like this…
Add a little bit of hair spray:
Get all of your bobby pins ready so you can easily access them.
Lightly tease/back comb the front section of your hair at the roots. You don’t need to tease very much at all.
Flip your head upside down! Gently brush the back section of your hair up and forward. Don’t brush the curly ends!
Grab the hair loosely in one hand like you are making a pony tail.
Twist it clockwise once.
Using your other hand grab the ends of one side of the curls. Scrunch upwards to your head.
As you bring it to your head continue to grab hair around it. Once you actually reach the base of the twisted big, grab hold of it.
Turn your head up the right way again and you should have something like this…
See how it’s long on one side and shorter on the side that I did the grabby thing on? Now it’s time for pins!
Start by pinning around the twist. Don’t just slide pins in, slide them half way then twist and push them in the other direction, this is how you get them to stay in really well!
Pin it enough to keep it in place by itself:
Now tidy it up with more pins ^_^ You can create the bubbly waved effect by adding a pin every 5cm or so across the top of your head. This is basically using the curls you made earlier and forcing them into place.
If you’ve curled it well, you shouldn’t have to do too much work, the curls naturally want to sit like this. The back looks like this:
Now time for decoration… I added a big bow!
And I used a bunch of flower pins too 😀 I just put them randomly all over the place, you can use them to add to the bubbliness on top too because when you add them close to the scalp you will squish the puffier bits down.
It’s also a good time to touch up any of the major curls ^_^
Un-clip your fringe and give it a quick go over to ^_^
Extra hair spray!
And you’re all finished 😀
This is a really versatile hair style, you can change it completely just by scrunching the hair up in a different position. In this next photo I had it all on one side rather than a couple of curls hanging down, it just depends on your technique. You probably won’t be able to get it to look exactly the same twice but having it slightly different every time is kind of fun XD
Hope that was easy to follow and you enjoyed it, let me know if you have any questions!
