Soo because I have the THINNEST hair probably ever, and I also highlight my hair (shock, gasp HORROR right? HA) I try not to wash it everyday. Close your ears if this grosses you out, but it’s just a fact. Now don’t get crazy I still shower everyday I just don’t wash my hair, just to put a stop to THAT rumor mill. So anyways, I try and take it easy on the poor hairs and let them just chill out every other day. SO, day 2 if you will, I usually do some sort of updo sitch, just because let’s face it, my hair isn’t as full of volume as it was the day before AND it is easy and I can sleep in. BONUS.
I have gotten a lot of questions recently on the poof, and perhaps this weekend I will have my assistants (taking volunteers) help me make some videos! No promises chicas, I am gonna be poolside 99% of the time, but maybe just maybe they will come your way. I know you have heard that before right? 😉 But anyways, I just wanted to show you this little ditty I threw together this morning, and also let you know how easy it is for you to also do!
I call it the messy side bun… thingy. For lack of a more professional term.
Sorry I don’t have photos of the steps, I gotta get better at this tutorial shindig. But I only decided to post this on my lunch break, so let’s just go with it chics!
I start by doing a little braid in the front, and then pinning it.
I POOF the hair into a side ponytail, either side works but I usually put it on the side with the braid. Leave some pieces down on the other side that you will use to twist back.
Once pony tail is in place you can hairspray and make sure poof is to your liking.
Take pieces of the pony tail and just start pinning up randomly to cover ponytail holder. Sometimes I will tease these and spray as I go to make them fuller, and less see through. (hear me my thin haired sistas?) Use a mirror, three way preferably, to make sure you are pinning how you want it.
Take some of the little pieces you left down in the front and curl away from your face, and then brush and pin back randomly.
Spray spray, and you are ready to run out the door!
The key is to not worry about perfection, I mean it is a messy fun look, just let your hair kinda do what it wants to do.
Now I know y’all are still like but WHAT about the poof?? Well here is a link to a video I did at one point, and towards the end you can see some of my poofing. But I PROMISE a better, POOF only tutorial in the near future. Key is…
TRESemme Tres two hair spray,
and plastic rollers (seen in video).
If you try this little look, send me pics please!!
