Have you ever had a bad hair day? What a silly question….right? Well, if today is one of those days, I have a suggestion of what you can do and it will take you less than two minutes to get it together.
Quick and mute – just how I like my hair tutorials :D
Today’s tutorial comes from The Beauty Department. This is an outstanding website that all of you ladies should know about.
My hair is too long to do it quite like this, so I’m working on a way to deal with the extra length. If you have long hair and have done something spiffy to make this work for you, leave a note in the comments or shoot me an email!
TOOLS: bobby pins, accessory, hairspray.
Prep: You’ll want the hair to have some texture before you pin it up. If you have curly hair, you’re all set. If not, use a 1″ spring iron and curl everything away from your face so it will twist easier. Then it’s just 2 steps!
Take the entire left side and start twisting near your ear. Best to twist it kind of tight and then loosen it up after you pin everything. Stop just past the middle and add a large bobby pin for extra support. You can see where we placed it in Katie’s hair. When inserting the bobby pin, go back against the hair, almost like you’re putting it inside the twist you just created!
Now gather all of the hair on the right, along with the hair left out from the other side and twist UP. Position it over the first twist and pin using a large bobby pin. Tuck the hair that’s left out into the twist and add a couple more bobby pins for security. If the hair is too short, just add an accessory!
Now using a hand mirror, check it out from the sides and back to make sure it’s well proportioned and balanced. Loosen it up with your fingers or pull some pieces out around your face if you want a more romantic vibe, then add a veil of hairspray.
Not feeling like this look is complete? Grab a feather or something with sparkles and put it in at the top of your twist!
I just love the color of this gal’s hair!! Again, gorgeous color and outrageous bangs.
If you’re short on time, jump to 1:46, 5:06, and 10:25 and watch for a little bit.
I’ve done something similar to this, but because my hair normally isn’t super clean, it relatively stays in place with a few bobby pins, sans spray. That being said, I can now see how one can take bangs to a new height because of all the curling and spraying and curling and spraying…. :D
Someone must have a snood here in Switzerland. Hopefully I can find one, otherwise I might just braid my hair. I guess then I wouldn’t get to have a Snoody Sunday then. Hmmm….I’ll figure something out :)
