I don’t usually talk about sucky things happening here but this week has been an absolute bust. I haven’t been able to finish anything at all that I started >_<

Between catching a cold while standing on a freezing air field tarmac on a photography job with James, craft projects failing miserably, several friends having major life crisis’s and illnesses, family members being in hospital, Lottie stealing some panadol and spending all day throwing up… it’s just been kind of a sucky 2 weeks.

So instead of spending the night editing and then posting one of the craft tutorials that failed fairly miserably I’m calling today a wash and going to bed early to kick my cold and regroup so I can do better tomorrow!

Sometimes rather than trying to push through crappiness you just need to reset your clock, watch a movie, eat some junk food and wake up for a new day tomorrow!

In lieu of a real post here’s a hair tutorial video I forgot to post last week!

Today we’re doing a style which has a little bit of a retro twist! The deep part with a flicked fringe is really fun and you can dress it up or down.

Written Instructions:

Hello Besties!
Today we’re doing a side swept look with a lot of volume and some retro curls at the front.
But first… Dance break!
Sorry, I watch kpop playlists while I film these and sometimes you just have to dance!
Ok, start with some pre-curled hair. Use your teasing comb to take a section and tease it at the root.
Then give it a blast of hairspray.
After another little dance break, take another section of hair from the other side.
Then tease that at the root and flip it over to the other side.
Repeat this until you think it looks good.
I flipped over three sections.
Now tease back your fringe and push that over to the side until it looks like you’ve been in some kind of storm!
Very lightly brush the top to smooth over the teasing.
Now leave that side and we’ll come back to it later.
Take the remaining section of hair, pull it backwards and pin it in place with your favourite accessory.
Now back to the other side again.
Very lightly brush your hair so it smoothes but doesn’t kill the volume for the tease.
Now shape the bottom of your fringe into a bit of a was and hairspray in place.
At the end of the wave I’m adding a little curl with my finger and some hairspray.
To accent this wave even further I’m going to add a second curl just behind it facing the other way.
You can add as many curls as you want in as many sizes as you want, just hairspray the bajeezus out of them.
So this is my second curl. Taadaa.
I like how over the top it looks but you can obviously tone this down a bit if that’s your style.
Having these curls makes the side swept look much more obvious as well as fabulous.
Now separate your other curls while you spray to finish everything off.
And you’re done.
It’s cute and a little bit saucy.

Thanks so much for watching. Bye!~~~~~~~~~~~~
