THE FIVE MINUTE-PINUP'ISH-TIKI INSPIRED-HAIRDO

Hairdo #6:


This is an easy 'do that could be seen last week in my polka-dot skirt-post. It's quick way to do something about your locks if your hair is a bit untameable after a wild night out or due to yesterday's curls, like mine at the moment; extra dry and textured of heat and hairpsray from a photoshoot the day before.

If you start from scratch you might like to curl your hair first to make it more easy to work with. It's easy to roll and secure your hair around a stick (I use the same decorated, glossy chop stick you've seen before; a life saver) and it can give you a sligthly exotic look if you so wish, especially combined with a flower.

So, here's how you do it:



If that was a bit too fast (and epilectic) for you, we can give it a closer look:
(Bare with me and the computer photos as it is an easier, although a perhaps less aesthetic way to do this -who knows, maybe I even at some point will give it a go at a video tutorial. Oh my.)

Well - first, brush out the hair, it doesn't matter if it gets real frizzy.

Then separate the hair in the front with a rat-tail comb (fasten the hair in the back for the moment if you feel it gets in the way). Separate this part in three sections, roll each section towards your head, secure with one bobby pin stuck trhough the roll. I try to put the pin in just were the roll turns over so it won't show too well. You can lay the rolls as you like, standing, more flat, or more inwards.(Click the links for examples)

Lately I've been sporting these three rolls a lot as I'm growing out my bangs, and I've been rolling all three in the same dierction. Here I twist second roll more inwards, and lay it against my forehead, as well as the third.

Grab the section of hair on the side of your head, parting at the ear, and twist it upwards. (As seen before in my very first tutorial.) Fasten it with a comb, or hair clip. Of course you can make a victory roll too, but we're not going to go all hi-fi here now (plus then you might have to count in a little bit more than five minutes for this one, unless you're a pro.) Repeat on the other side.

You can also leave it like this (it will look like this do then) but if your really doing it the "day after" you most likely want to continue.

Grab the rest of the hair and twist it in to a round or banana shaped bun and stick the chop stick trhoug to secure it. Well curled "day afer" hair stays well in place with just the stick for me, but add some pins and hide them well on the sides if it feels unsecure. I have to add some pins at the neckline to tame those small annoying fly-aways.

To finnish the look of, add a huge flower, and spray if needed.
Then, go out and look great!

Wow, that is so gorgeous! I wish my hair was long enough.

melina bee said...

you look so beautiful. This still seems a bit too tricky for me... my hair is so very fine it is really hard for me to work with. that and I have bangs, so not sure if it would work either. I think I prefer to see it on you, especially the darling video.

GinCherry said...

It's really amazing...

My hair now is too short, but when they was a bit longer I tried to do something like that, but my hair is too unruly and slick to do rolls and other "tricks" easy :) Or maybe I just need a practise.A lot :D

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Rosie Unknown : Yes, rolling around a stick takes a bit of lenght but you can also roll half of your hair (the hair on top pf you head) for a smaller bun with flowers and leave the rest hanging loose. I do it sometimes too and I think that should work for shorter lenghts!

Melina Bee : But try roling your hair aroudn a stick, it's very easy. I think if you skip the rolls at front you'll get a nice do anyway that noone can fail to make. It will get a nice touch with just the stick bun and the flower too, without even lifting the hair at the sides!

Diana, amanda Lee, Miss Emmi & Mrs. Munster : thanks!

Olivia Rouge : :D

Sueper : take some pics if you do :)

Gin Cherry : yes, practice makes master! And like said it will help if you have a little dry or messy hair for this one, or curl it with an iron or such first to get it more firm than slick! And like I told Meilna Bee, you can try this on half of your hair too :)

Elle said...

Gee, I almost had a heart attack when I saw your boyfriend popping to the background, so concentrated I was on watching the pics... No wonder if you like Bill on True Blood as he looks exactly like your boyfriend :)

But thanks again for a useful tutorial!
