Kate Petersen is back with another DIY hair tutorial for us. Today we’ve gone for a relaxed, half up half down curls style. It’s most suited for medium to long hair, but this do is versatile, so have a play! :)
You Will Need:
- Backcombing brush
- Pins (tip: use pins that match your hair colour)
Step 1: Curl the hair as tight as you want. It’s better to overshoot it a bit so that you can work with it and not lose the curls.
Step 2: Using the point of the backcombing brush, section the hair from on top of the ear.
Step 3: The section should be equal on both sides or else you are more likely to have a ‘lopsided’ bump.
Step 4: Back comb the section. The best way is to brush downwards and then lift the brush out and then repeat. This locks the hair in place without being too rough.
Step 5: Take another section (slightly smaller than the first), from behind the first section and back comb it to the same degree as the first. The more back coming that you do, the bigger you can get your bump.
Step 6: Use the backcoming brush to smooth over the bump. Be careful not to brush it out completely!
Step 7: Spray and smooth with your hand, (this makes sure the little hairs get put in their place).
Step 8: Pin it in place.
Step 9: Interlocking the grips will help it to hold. Try to make an “x” with your grips.
Step 10: Take as much or as little hair from the front as you want.
Step 11: Pin the front section into the back.
Step 12: Take an equal section at the front the same as you had on the other side.
Step 13: Separate it into 3 equal parts.
Step 14: Loosely braid it and secure with a pin.
Step 15: Pull the braid to make it a bigger and looser
Step 16: Remove the pin and secure it into the back.
Step 17: Take little sections and create a curl that covers the pins.
Step 18: Repeat until you have covered all the pins and spray. Ta-Da!
