Basic Hime Hair Pouf Tutorial Using a Rat / 姫ギャル髪型チュートリアル

This is a simple hair tutorial showing the way that I do this big poufy hair style. This style can be used in a Japanese hime gyaru fashion look or adapted to many other styles. This is just one out of many ways to achieve looks like this and isn’t as damaging as many others as it uses a rat hair piece rather than teasing the whole lot.

Morning!
Today I’ll show you how my hair in a basic hime pouf.
This is the style I do most often.
Brush our your hair.
Mine was a bit dirty so I added a little scented talcum powder.
My version of this style is by no means the best of only way to achieve this style but it’s what works the best for me.
Take a small section of hair starting at the top of your ears and moving up to the top of your head.
Clip it out of the way and too the side.
For this version you will need a rat” basically that is something squishy in the same you want your hair to be.
Mine is a bandana wrapped in a hair extension.
Pin it to the top of your head behind the section of hair you clipped out of the way.
I am using a darker colour so you can see what I’m doing.
Pin it at the front, back and both sides so it’s really securely in place.
Now unclip the front section and brush it out.
Divide it into 3 sections: left, middle, right.
Let the left and right sections go so you are just holding the middle.
Using a teasing comb brush the section straight forward and tease the back of it so it will hold the shape better.
Lay it back over the rat and pin at the base.
Now spray it all over with hair spray and smooth down.
use your fingers to fan it out so it covers as much of the rat as possible.
Take a section from the right and brush it upwards.
Tease the back with the comb and pull it up the side and over to the opposite side.
Pin it at the base of the rat and also pin it at the top of the rat so the curve stays in place.
Repeat it on the other side too.
Pull the section up, brush through, tease, pin top and base, spray and smooth.
If you are unhappy with the shape just squish it until you like it and spray again.
To blend the bump to the bottom hair a bit more just grab a section from the side, tease and pin at the back.
Of course, spray it in place too.
Repeat on the other side and you’re almost finished.
That’s the basic bump almost done.
From the back you can see there are a few gaps where the rat can still be seen.
just fan out the hair with your fingers to cover them and spray.
If you use a rat the same colour as your hair it doesn’t matter as much.
Time to curl the rest of it.
I use a mini straightener for the curls.
Don’t forget the bits pinned at the back too.
Add some accessories front and back and you’re finished!
I like to use long ribbons on the back so it looks more impressive.
If you feel your hair isn’t big enough you can tease thr roots for some extra volume.
I live by the motto that there’s no such thing as too much hairspray.
So now you’re all made up you just need somewhere fun to go and show it all off.
I hope this was a useful video, please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and tutorials.
Thanks so much for watching.
Bye!

How To Do An Overhead Plaited Spring Hairstyle Video Tutorial

Monday means video time ^_^ Today is another hair tutorial, next up are some nail art ones using the new set up that I’m really excited about.

This video is a companion piece to the Overhead Summer Plait style tutorial I posted while ago over here. Hopefully it clears up some of the questions that were asked about the original and makes it easier to see what’s going on! I love this style for Spring/Summer but it looks great with fuzzy ear muffs and a scarf in Winter too.

I’m really enjoying making these videos so if you guys have any requests or there are old tutorials you want me to remake in video form to clarify instructions just let me know in the comments! I have had a couple of requests for vlog kind of things where I talk but I don’t know if that would actually be interesting or if I would even have enough to say to not just have several minutes of silence XD

This is my favorite Summer hair style.
It’s great for hot weather because it keeps the hair off your neck.
If you pin it enough it’s ridiculously sturdy too so great for windy days or bad hair days.
You will need a brush, pins, hair ties and something to decorate with.
Brush you hair our and part down the middle into two sections.
Tie one of the sections into a pony tail to keep it out of the way.
You might want to pin your fringe out of the way as well as any layers you want to leave down.
Plait the other section of your hair tightly down to the end.
You need to plait in an overhand way so the first step is taking the back section over rather than under.
This will ensure it sits flat against the side of your head.
Tie it off with a hair tie as close to the end as possible.
Now repeat on the other side but this time don’t tie it off.
Many people have asked if this style works for shorter hair, the answer is yes.
Just pull the section of hair up so the plait starts higher up the side of your head.
Take the plait and pull it upwards and over the top of your head.
Take a bobby pin and slide it over the end of the plait to hold it in place.
You might need more than one pin but it just needs to hold for a minute while we fix the other side.
Remove the tie from the other plait and pull it up and over to the other side of your head.
Follow the same line as the first plait so they cross over at the top.
Poke the ends of the plait under the beginnings of the other one.
Pin it in place.
Now move the beginning of the first plait over the top so the ends are all hidden.
You should add pins on both sides of it.
You can see the ends on the left are hidden pretty well but ones on the right need to be squished in more.
The technique I used for pinning is to grab a bit from the plait and a bit from the scalp, pull away, rotate the pin in towards the plait again and slide underneath.
The twisting makes it very secure.
Now it’s just a matter of straightening or curling your fringe and the layers around your face.
And adding some pretty accessories.
I’m using a chain of felt daisies that I made.
In the past I’ve also used little bows and fake flowers, anything goes.
And that’s all finished.
Cute, sweet and very pretty for Summer.
It’s a little bit dreamy.
So it’s perfect for imagining you’re in a romantic novel and spend your days staring longingly out windows and waiting for a lost love.
I hope this was a useful video, please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and tutorials.

How I Dye My Pink Hair Ombre Gradient Thing…

Yet another “long time coming” post, I promise I’m trying to catch up!

Ombré, gradient, two tone, incredibly stupid looking, call it what you like, people have been asking about my hair ever since I did it. I’ve always been really hesitant in providing instructions etc because I’m not a hair dresser, I’m not a colour expert and I also don’t want to be responsible for people giving it a try and not being happy with the results *_*

So rather than an actual tutorial this is more of a post that I can direct people to if they are really interested in how I do it. I’m not suggesting that people try this at all because it depends on the type of dye you use, your hair type and a lot of other factors so please talk to a hair dresser before you do anything!

My hair is made up of 3 colours: blonde, pink and copper. This is my routine:

  • I bleach my roots maybe once a month (or leave it longer if I’m lazy/feel like wearing a lot of hats). I use a pre-colour stripper and do not use toner so it retains that orange tone which blends well with the other two colours. They’ve just discontinued the bleach that I use so not sure which brand I will be changing to at the moment >_<
  • The copper tips were originally achieved through a Schwarzcopf 8 wash colour (Aztec Copper) which never… washed out. I had planned on touching this up once a month too but it’s been a very long time and it’s still in there so I’ll probably only touch up  when it needs it. The pink only tints the copper area slightly so it provides a nice backdrop and a nice variation in the colour.
  • The pink is done once a week, or if I’m feeling lazy once every few weeks. At the beginning I did it every 4 days but that was too much effort/expensive so I have since scaled back. The dye I use is called Wakk Stain but it’s not something I would recommend. For a few months I thought it was drying out my hair like crazy but the cause ended up being a hair treatment that wasn’t suited to my hair type, even still I probably wouldn’t recommend this dye because it washes out so quickly. The fact that it does wash out so quickly and doesn’t stain skin is perfect for my needs at the moment though because it makes it easier to move around into the correct place, goes on quickly and can be removed if you make a mistake. I think Priceline has stopped selling this now too anyway (or at least the ones near me have) so I will be experimenting with other dyes in the next few months.
So with all of that out of the way, this is how I do the pink parts! Again if you intend to try this please go to a hair dresser!!

So hopefully that answers any questions and fingers crossed you enjoyed!

Pink Gradient Hair Dye

This is a video on how I create the fade effect in my hair. It was created for a post on my blog. This is not intended to be a tutorial but instead to answer questions I get on a daily basis. I DO NOT suggest you try this without consulting a hair professional first.

I get quite a few questions about my hair and how I achieve the fade from blonde to pink to copper at the tips.
I’m not an expert but this is the routine I use.
I would always suggest going to a hairdresser just in case.
You can see in the photos the top picture if after the pink has faded out and the bottom is freshly dyed.
This is the end result.
I generally bleach my roots before the beginning.
The pink I use is not permanent but the copper at the tops is so it doesn’t require touch ups.
Normally I do this all while showering to save time.
Start by shampoo-ing your hair.
Squeeze out most of the extra moisture but keep it fairly wet.
This whole process is really best done in the shower so you don’t get dye and water everywhere!
Divide into two sections and pin your fringe out of the way.
Give it a good brush through.
This whole process will depend on the dye you’re using.
Please read and follow the individual instructions there.
Twist each section inwards towards your face.
Again this technique is just what works for my dye and my hair type, it may not work for yours.
The dye I’m using here is called “Wakk Stain” in pink.
Squeeze a good amount on to the palm of your hand.
Depending on the type of dye you may need to wear gloves.
Put a little dye on the tips of your fingers and rub it on where you want the bottom of the gradient to start.
Rub in by twisting the section of hair around your fingers.
Continue adding colour little by little by twisting arund your fingers.
Add more towards the bottom to make the colour brighter.
To make a nice fade up the top just use your fingers to move small amounts of the dye which is already on your hair upwards.
Because the hair is wet you should be able to move the dye fairly easily.
Keep twisting and adding dye.
The twisting prevents the dye from covering every single strand of hair so when it’s untwisted and dry, the fade is more gradual.
Every now and then you can untwist the hair and comb through with your fingers.
This will let you see how the colour is progressing and where you need to add more.
After a while you can start to see the fade forming.
Once you have the top fade in the way you want it just add a bunch more dye to the bottom section so it’s nice and bright.
The time to head to the shower and wash it all out!
The dye I use doesn’t need to be left in long so I generally just wash out and then add condition as soon as I’m done.
It doesn’t stain so you can see it’s come straight off my hands.
Hah! I even managed to keep all my make up on when washing it out. That’s an achievement!
Blow dry it out and you’re all finished.
You might want to take this time to have your own slow motion hair commercial moment… or not.
Finished! It’s much brighter and the fade is very gradual.
As I mentioned this is just the technique that works for me it may not work for you depending on hair type or the dye you’re using.
Pretty pink hair again and the fade is pretty good, yay!
This dye fades very quickly so I usually do this once a week or if I’m lazy just when I have a special event.
I hope this was a useful video, please check out the blog post linked in the description for more information and tutorials.
Thanks so much for watching.
Bye!

Long Hair Faux Bob Hair Style Tutorial ^_^

There have been quite a few requests for hair tutorials lately so I thought I would give doing a video one by myself a try 😀

Recently I’ve been really missing my short hair, I’ve had it long for a few years now and I usually get to a point that I’m so sick of it I chop it all short again. This time I don’t want to get rid of it because I love the length and the pink parts so I’m experimenting with various ways to fake it.

This style is good for Summer because it keeps hair away from your neck and shoulders. Or you know, just good for people like me who get bored with their hair easily!

Do take a look because it’s got the new theme song (and girl with the lashes at the end!) and it’s a completely new editing style for me. I’m still improving in making videos (especially my lighting set up, James worked out how to make it so much better since I recorded this one) so any suggestions are appreciated!  Also do let me know if you prefer to have tutorials like this in photo or video form. Ideally I would like to do both photo and video version fo everything but it can be quite time consuming so I might just do one at a time for now and redo them in the other form later. I made Youtube partner last week and now I’m getting the hang of doing more editing etc so I’m all excited about doing videos hahaha!

Anyway enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed it and it was a bit useful!
