Follow Me as I Learn to Style Hair

Welcome to My Learning Project

I have always been fascinated by hair styles. I have very fine and thin hair, making it really difficult to style. I have always longed for long, thick hair so I could try all the “in” and “cool” hairstyles that didn’t work on my fine hair. I even considered hair school, to learn how to style, cut and dye hair before realizing that working and learning with children was my ultimate dream. So, I am taking this opportunity of a learning project to try to “tap into” my hair styling dreams again.

Some of the struggles I foreseen with the hair style I chose to work towards included: working with very thick, long hair, curling hair with a flat iron, creating depth and texture in the style, braiding sideways (and using braids other than French braids), and hiding bobby pins. I wanted to learn more before attempting the hair style, I even typed it in a few times, but I forced myself to hold off until I gave it my best effort from what I already know about hair styling. I could tell you about the process and my struggles, but it is best you watch it for yourself. Please take a look at my YouTube video for an insight on the work I have ahead of me during this learning journey.

I am looking forward to learning each of the individual steps of this particular hairstyle throughout my journey. I am also looking forward to learning about different products that will benefit the health of my models’ hair.  And my big dream is that someday I will be asked to help style hair for grads, bridesmaids, and maybe even brides themselves.

Please, follow me on my journey in finding reliable and useful resources to develop a lifelong skill in hair styling. Each week I will seek out, use, and critique hair styling videos and articles. All while improving my own videos, skills, and technology use.

  1. Justine this looks like such a fun, interactive, and engaging learning project! I too long for hair to style. It seems that when my hair reaches my chest it just stops growing. I am interested to see what products and hairstyles you chose to do in your future posts! Let me know if you ever need a hair model, I’d be more than happy to help out. Best of luck throughout your learning project, you will do fantastic!

  2. Great start, Justine! I can imagine the difficulty from having fine, short hair like yours to working on think, long hair like MacKenzie’s! You did a great job for your first go at it. I look forward to watching your progress and following your tips when it comes to doing my own hair! Best of luck on this fun journey!

  3. Thank you for the kind words everyone! It is definitely a huge challenge working on thick, long hair! And it takes a lot more time to style than I thought it would; as curling my own hair only takes about 15 minutes maximum. I am excited I have support and encouragement in all of you as I move forward in this journey.
