I wanted to update you all on my hair curling skills with a flat iron. The image on the left is how my hair dresser curled my hair with a flat iron after my hair cut a couple weeks ago. The images on the right are after I attempted to curl my hair with a flat iron, using the no twist method! YIKES! I will have to keep practicing to say the least!
I also wanted to share the twist braid I did on my own hair the other day. I loved it so much on Mackenzie I had to try it on myself. I will definitely continue to use this style to keep my bangs back.
This week I figured it was time to start working on buns. The FINAL STEP towards my end goal! I found this step by step picture on Pinterest and I knew I needed to try it! I still don’t love the method of learning from picture only steps, it is frustrating because you can’t see the transition steps or hand positions that take you from step to step, it also does not show you how to place the bobby pins.
Which, SIDE NOTE I looked into how to place bobby pins for ultimate hold. I found this great video that goes through examples and explains the reasoning for her tricks! And I personally think I did a better job at hiding the bobby pins, thanks to this tip. Thank you Courtney for the suggestion to look into this!
I still had some difficulties getting the hair style to HOLD because Mackenzie’s hair is so thick and heavy. I asked her to shake her head, as I know someone at an event would be moving all day and wanted to see if it would hold, like most hair stylists are able to do for their clients!
CHECK OUT MY PROCESS
Part of my learning experience this week was taking a video. I realized afterwards that the angle of my video is not the best for my viewers to see my hands and the hair I am working with. I also really wanted to add music, but I couldn’t remember how and felt rushed for time, so I will have to try again next week! I also was not sure if I sped the video up too much or if I should have sped it up more, so please give me your opinions in the comments! Any tips as to how I can improve my videos for my views would be greatly appreciated!
I am just so proud of how beautiful this looks!
