Hope you all had a VERY fun and safe 4th of July! The day off mid-week totally screwed me up (I kept thinking it was Sunday all day long), but we managed to party our socks off, and now I'm exhausted. Luckily we're in for a fun-filled camping weekend - and I can't wait to get away! But other than that...
...I've been having some hair-styling fun lately!
After watching the Victory Rolls tutorial again (that I posted here - it's at the very bottom), I decided that I just wanted to have some fun with curls. SO that's exactly what I did!
I have been getting so many compliments on my hair when I style it like this - and it's actually pretty darn easy! It's also GREAT to do when you don't feel like washing your hair. :)
I just section my hair in half - and put up the top portion. I start in the front and work my way around curling small pieces (just like she does in the video). I carefully hold on to each curl as I drop it from the curling iron, then clip the curl in place.
I finish by doing the top section, and lightly spraying my hair all over with hairspray.
I let them cool for about 10 minutes or so (usually that's when I eat my breakfast), then carefully remove all of the clips.
I gently finger-comb them out, and....
...VOILA! Beautifully curly hairs!
(yes, I cleaned my mirror AFTER taking this shot. Sheesh, you'd think I'd learn from last time!)
I love how full it makes my hair look, and it's just super fun to swish around! I'm totally getting the hang of making the curls too (it takes a little practice), and I'm getting faster & faster. The curls stay in ALL DAY which is SO awesome! I never thought I could make that work! Although I did realize they don't stay in if you have to wear a full-face helmet (as I do when I ride my scooter). They will flatten right out - just a warning!
OH, and just so you know what I'm working with - I have thick, coarse, naturally wavy, dry hair. I'm sure this style would work great with fair hair, but you may have to use a bit stronger hairspray. As far as thick, naturally straight hair goes - I have no idea if this will work. I know that it's very hard to hold curls with thick straight hair, but hey, it's worth a shot! :)
