Hair tutorial time again :D I am pretty happy with how regularly I’ve been able to get these done, the new set up makes me so much more motivated. Now I just need to finalise my video set up with some new lighting and I’ll be set!
Today I’m showing a basic small pouf style with two plaited headbands.
Start with clean brushed hair.
Pull out a small piece of hair from the nape of your neck.
Now plait down the whole length of the hair and tie off.
Repeat with another piece of hair on the other side of your head.
Put those to the side of the moment while we make the pouf.
Pull a large section of hair up from the top of your head.
Now fold it backwards gently so the pouf is as high as you like and pin in place. I like to shape it with my hands so it’s nice and round. You can fluff it up with your fingers too. If you don’t like the shape just pull it up and start again.
Now grab one of the little plaits and pull it up and over your head to the other side. It should sit at the part between fringe/bangs and pouf. You can pull the side bits of hair behind the plait for a smooth look or leave them in front for a soft look. Pin the plait on the other side of your head, mine reaches just behind my ear but as long as it goes over half way you should be fine.
Now pull the other plait to the other side. it should cover the end of the first plait. Tuck the end of it under the first plait and pin in place.
If the ends are really obvious then pin a little of your loose hair over the top. Give the whole thing a burst of hairspray.
And that’s it! I like to curl the ends of the loose hair so it’s a very floaty soft look but I think it works really well straight too.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial :D
I’m going to continue doing these as regularly as possible so if you have any hairstyle requests please let me know!
