Happy Wednesday, my friends! I hope you're already looking forward to the weekend. I know I am! This last weekend we took a few Christmas Card pictures, & I figured it was a good time to document that I actually did my hair. (Which happens...like never).
So strap yourself in for some awkward selfies, ladies & (if you're out there) gents! We're about to get crazy in here.
So I get it...I've got super long hair. Its fairly easy to manage too (please don't throw rocks at me). I'm exceptionally lazy though, so I needed to find a way to make my curls last a day or two. When I curl it this way it will literally stay bouncy until I wash it. And I promise its easy as pie.
Let the awkward selfies commence! Start with clean, dry hair. Spray it down with heat protector, and brush through. The heat protector I think helps lock in style too...so don't skip this step!
Section your hair off into 3 inch sections. I usually take 6 inch sections from the bottom, and split 'em in half to be curled.
Curl one of your sections away from your face. I don't even know what the size of my curling iron is. Maybe an inch? I think its the perfect size for my hair though.
This is where it gets interesting. While your hair is still warm, spritz lightly with hairspray, and twist THE ENTIRE 3 INCH SECTION like so, away from your face.
Let it twist up into itself, and bobby pin it to your head. You may have seen this trick for "Victoria Secret Curls" except you bobby pin every.single.curl. Sorry but, ain't nobody got time for 'dat!
Repeat on your entire head until you look like little bow peep. I'm not kidding...its embarrassing walking around like this.
When I finish the last section, I change my clothes, brush my teeth, put deodorant on and maybe eat some quick breakfast. Give your hair about 10 more minutes to set. If you've got 10 minutes that is...if not just give it whatever you've got!
When you pull out all of your bobby pins don't freak out...you're bound to look like Shirley Temple. Just flip your head over and WHIP YOUR HAIR BACK 'N FORTH! (Preach it Willow!) I just spray some light hold hair spray, run my fingers through the curls, and ...
I only wash my hair once every 2 or 3 days (yes...I still shower daily. I don't bring the funk. :) ) and these curls literally last until I wash my hair. I just have to flip my hair a few times to bring some body and i'm good to go.
What are your hair secrets? Do you have a go to style you couldn't live without? This beauty challenged chick would LOVE to hear your secrets!
Until Next Time,
