  1. Day 27 – Mohawk Monday!!

    February 27, 2012 by Jo

    I declare that it is Mohawk Monday!! I am rocking one today. How about you?

    I love them and think everyone should wear one at least once. Here are my favorite mohawk/fauxhawk tutorials:

    Elegant (from Day 21), which is great for medium/long hair.

    Great for shorter hair:

    Great if you have 30 minutes and a friend:

    Yes, this looks rather time consuming, but it’s so pretty! I’m guessing if you have thinner hair, you could instead just make little buns/pin curls up the back and then curl the top to get a similar effect. What do you think?

    The original inspiration:

    Which one is your favorite?


  2. Day 24 – Roll it Up

    February 24, 2012 by Jo

    This video is on the long side, but I love what Cherry Dollface looks like and I want to remember this hairstyle. What do you think?

    If you want to follow her, here is her information:

    I’ll be honest, I still haven’t bought into prepping my hair, curling it, and using products, but over the last month, clearly most of these gals prep, tease, curl, and use product and the results are solid. I find that when I haven’t washed my hair in a while, or if I’ve been keeping my hair in pin curls, I don’t tend to need product anyways. Anyone else in the same boat?

    This also reminds me that I need to find a great colorist here in San Francisco. I know there are lots of them, but who is going to be my go-to-gal? Any suggestions? He/She needs to have already colored hair like mine….I’d prefer not to train another one.

  3. Day 22 – Scarf Wrap Tutorial

    February 22, 2012 by Jo

    You have two minutes? Well good! That means you can learn how to wrap a scarf around you head and still look awesome!

    Boom! I’m all over this.

    And here are two more for funsies!


    This takes longer, but again, you just watch and learn.


  4. Day 17 – Sponge Rollers

    February 17, 2012 by Jo

    I want these sponge roller! I wonder if they’d hold all of my hair though?

    Last year for February I posted a number of videos from this gal. I like her stuff, and I enjoy her subtitles :D

    Her bendy hair rollers are 1.3” and are available on http://www.jumbocurlers.com These jumbo curlers are made of soft foam / sponge perfect for overnight sets.

    Do you prefer to use sponge roller, hot sticks, or pin curls?


  5. Day 10 – Pin Curl Updo

    February 10, 2012 by Jo

    Some friends of mine are getting married tomorrow and I’m really excited to get to play “Dress Up.” I have a fun dress to wear, but in Jo fashion, I need to do something exciting with my hair. After stumbling upon this hair tutorial, I decided this was the one for me :D

    I’ll be honest, I don’t know if I can do it, but luckily I have a full day to figure out how to make this work. Pictures coming soon!

    Congratulations Dave & Julie!!!


  6. Day 9 – Alternative Braid

    February 9, 2012 by Jo

    Hahah, I’m pretty terrible at this one. I can’t quite get the proportions the way I want them (yet), but I think this idea is really neat. I’ve never even thought about twisting my hair like this to make a braid before. Guess you learn something new every day!

    Any tricks you’ve found to make this work for you?


  7. Day 7 – Victory Bun

    February 7, 2012 by Jo

    Yup, another bun!! They are so versatile; they are messy, classy, clean, chic, or grungy depending on how you personalize it. What can I say, I appreciate a nice bun, hun!

    This gal has amazing eyes…

    ….and a solid hair tutorial. What I like is that she’s basically uses a victory roll technique to roll her hair up and then has turned those rolls into a bun. Just saying, it’s a great idea and I can’t believe I never thought of it. On the other hand, this does mean you need to spend more than 60 seconds on your hair (heheh, often when I’m putting my hair in a bun, it takes less than a minutes. Keeping in place is another story).


  8. Febru-Hairy Day 1 – Sock Bun

    February 1, 2012 by Jo

    Aaaaaaaaaaand we’re off! Opening this year’s Jo Hoffberg’s favorite/interesting/useful hair tutorials is brought to you by Eisy Morgan. It’s an interesting idea and I’m wondering if this idea/technique could apply elsewhere. What I love about this is how enormous you get make your hair. Well, let’s get started :D


    Grab a sock, cut off the toes, roll it down as if you were cuffing a shirt, and that’s the scrunchie that you’re going to use. Now, fast forward to 2:12 and get started!!

    What I like about this video is how few hair-things she used. I love watching videos where people MacGyver things.

    I also found this video, which I quite like. Miss Peace n Love‘s voice is….memorable, but I like how she broke this down. Get your hair in a pony tail and start watching at 1:37.

    What fun is that instead of using a sock, she used a leg warmer. I think this is the one I’m going to try right now!!


  9. Hair Inspiration in November

    November 16, 2011 by Jo

    Earlier this year in February I did a 28 Day Marathon of vintage-inspired hair videos that I found on youtube. Ever since then, I’ve laid off the hair tutorial videos, but now, my interest has piqued again!

    Ask Sash88 shows us how to do three simple hair styles: half up do, diagonal french twist, and at braided bun.

    My guess is these would work better for medium-length hair. I really like how at the beginning of the video, she gave a quick preview, filmed everything and laid down vocals and music later, and kept is simple. If that seems silly of me to point out, then you’ve clearly never watched some of the long-winded hair tutorials that are online. I just saved a few minutes of your life; you’re welcome. :)

    I don’t know about you, but I really like the look of braids and I’ve been interested in how to do a 5 strand braid for a bit.

    I am not sure I am going to be able to do this on myself, but I now know how to do it. Lindsay, I think I’ll need to practice on you!

    Enjoy, Kittens!


  10. Hair Tutorial – Day 25 – Fabulous Friday

    February 25, 2011 by Jo

    Ok, this one blows my mind. I’ve never thought to twist my hair while braiding it. I think I’ll need to try this on someone first so I can have some sense about the dexterity it takes, but I dig it! It’s edgier than how the girls would have worn their hair in the 1940s, but I still think it’s worthy of being up her for Febru-hairy!

    Yeah for no words, a quick run down, and good camera angles! That is a great tutorial according to me!!

    ***

    Hahah, here is how to do a 5 Braid. What’s so great about this is that it’s not done with hair, it’s done with dough! Now learn it!

    And last, but not least, here is one that will also test your french braiding skills. I still can’t do this consistently, but I’m working on it! I often do the same thing she does with the end of her hair. Once you finish your braid (variation), then roll it up and pin the crap out of it to your head so it won’t go anywhere while you’re dancing!

    What other variations have you come up with? Do you prefer to braid in pig tails or all of your hair? Over the top, or around the back?

    Keep sending and posting pictures!!
