Les curls and le poof!

Alright ladies, per your request, here is a little “how to” hair video. Ha ha. I am embarrassed to post this, but whatever, I’m going with it.

Had some extra time over Thanksgiving break which was AWESOME, so I made use of said time by cocktailin’ and hairfixin’ with the sissies. If you are lucky I will post the other videos we took that night as well. As the wine increases, so does the ridiculousness.

Sorry for the miss piggy nasty upward angle of the video. Ewww.

PS I MAY have revealed my Carrie secret in this video 😉

  1. Rachel says:

    I am ashamed to admit this but I totally just watched that whole video, because I want my hair to do that SO badly! My hair is a bit too long, but I think you may have just inspired me to go get some length cut off…loving it. I love that you can just sit there and chat for 12 minutes straight…I'd be totally awkward. Love love! Happy Monday!

  2. Petchie says:

    Great video, I will definitely be trying this, and you look adorable!

    Petchie 🙂

  3. Amber says:

    First of all, I love that you're drinking wine while instructing us on how to properly poof our hair. So Southern.

    Secondly – SUPER JEALOUS YOU ARE MEETING CARRIE! She's my celebrity female crush.

    Lastly, I've got to practice this. My hubby LOVES big hair and I have the most pathetic flimsy white girl hair ever. It's horrid. Thanks for the tips – gotta try this!

  4. Ashley says:

    I love that you posted this video! You have the best hair & I would LOVE for mine to do what yours does! I'm definitely going to try! 🙂

    So jealous you are meeting Carrie! She's my favorite!

  5. Danielle says:

    Totally watched the whole thing and totally appreciate you taking the time to show us. You have beautiful hair and you remind me a lot of Carrie (: Have fun meeting her!

  6. Gina says:

    I watched the whole thing…and I have a bob! You are adorable!

  7. Katherine says:

    do me do me do me next!

  8. Jess says:

    1. From your side profile – you look like Carries twinny.
    2. If I ever become famous, then I am taking you on the road with me as my personal stylist/girlfriend/wine conisseur
    3. Do you have a TWO-sided mirror in your BATHROOM??? HOW!!?? If so then your bathroom is my dream!

  9. Jennie says:

    AHHH love it! We do our hair pretty much the same way, but now I know how to properly POOF! Im still waiting on the "how to" do a cute bun with day old hair! 😉

  10. mFw says:

    I watched it you are so cute and sweet!!! Wish my hair would do that! How exciting you get to meet Carrie!!! I know its a dream come true for you!!!

  11. Katie Marie says:

    I love that you posted this! I have always loved the "pouf".. but can't seem to get mine to stay poufed for more than like an hour..

    So jealous you're meeting Carrie – she is so my favorite too!

  12. OkieEbeth says:

    I loved the video! Super cute! What curling iron are you using because I want to try it!

  13. Beth says:

    awesome! thank you! i'm gonna try this…got some hairspray and velcro rollers last night. 🙂

  14. Jill says:

    Perhaps Miss Brittney will give me a new haircut one day soon…cause my hair looks kinda crappy. It seems the big velcro roller helps alot at the crown area. Perhaps I should invest….LOVE the video 🙂 Pretty pretty hair (you're so fast)

  15. LivKit says:

  33. Love it.. I did the same video but minus le poof! California girls just don't poof but I want to.. That's why I have le bump it.. But I never use it.

  34. Sole Matters says:

    awesome video, but you didnt tell what size curling iron you used. what size is it? love your hair!!

  35. You are just so darn cute! I love it. Thanks so much for posting this video… I have been dying to learn how to do my hair like this! And yes, I just had to watch the whole thing! 🙂 I felt like I was just sitting across from you enjoying a glass of wine chatting!

  36. Cassie says:

    Dang it, I'm at work and can't watch it 🙁 I'll check it out at home tonight!

  37. Marcy XOXO says:

    I am just now seeing this video but I LAUVE it and you are just adorbs… makes me want a glass of wine!!! LOL

  38. Sasha says:

    How cute are you? Darling…. I need to work on the poofing myself.

  39. Amanda says:

    Oh my gosh this is the best thing I've seen in a long time here in blog land!!! You are so stinkin' cute and this video is what I've been googling forever. Seriously, I googled "how to poof your hair" before trying to find someone to teach me the correct way. I am from TX and all my friends who went to the university of arkansas came back with the poof while I went to school in louisiana and we were all natural, stick straight hair. Needless to say, I realized the error of my ways and am just light years behind in figuring out how to poof without it falling flat in 2.5 seconds and figuring out how to brush it out so that you don't see the rats nest underneath. I can't wait to try out your techniques tomorrow. I've got the hairspray and the tease comb and I do it the way you do…but for some reason it doesn't seem to want to cooperate most days. I won't give up though. 🙂 Thanks for the video! And you totally look like Carrie by the way. I love her too and we are both Tri Sigmas so we are sorority sisters! haha Ok, she went to school in Oklahoma and I was at Northwestern State in LA but STILL…it counts. Sort of. 😉

  40. I am going to have to try this. I have serious hair envy whenever I look at a picture of Carrie.

  41. Kelly says:

    Just wanted to say hi! I'm your newest follower. After chopping off 10 inches last spring for Locks of Love, my hair is FINALLY long enough to curl. I watched this tutorial and I must say THANKS! I have a ways to learn, but am sooo happy I found your blog (and the video that your sisters thought no one would appreciate ;-)) Happy Monday!

  42. Jaclyn says:

    Loving the "poof"!!! 🙂

  43. Lauren says:

    A. You're a gorg southern belle. B. LOVE this tutorial hunnie, can't wait to try it out! C. What's the name of the handy dandy teasing comb you use? I need to pick one up ASAP!

    Love your bloggy, super glad I stumbled upon it 🙂

  44. I just stumbled upon your blog today and Im in love! I love the video and the wine drinking and the Taylor!
    Super cute!

  45. Olivia Ellen says:

  46. Love, Love , Love it!!! And love You!!! You are Adorable!

  47. Lea Liz says:

    I am just now seeing this video and I wish I would have saw it sooner, I must try this on my hair, you make it look so easy! I loev it, you are just too cute!!! Can I just come over and you show me in person, haha!

  48. Meghan says:

    How fun! Your hair looks great and you are hilarious! I know you mentioned at one point having really fine hair, have you ever tried taking Biotin? It helps thicken hair like no other! Just a thought!

  49. Bethany says:
