Do you all like hair posts? I do! I have always loved working with hair. I wouldn’t say I’m that good at it but it was always fun. I am the oldest of three girls and we had hair stuff out the wazoo.
I have very fine hair but a lot of it. My hair styles the best if I wash at night, sleep on it, spritz a bit of water and brush it out, then style.
My favorite way to style my hair is to curl it. I have very stick straight hair naturally, but my hair does hold curl. Another advantage to washing at night is that I do not use many heat tools on my hair.
You can’t tell but I clip up each side with those old jaw clips.
I curl the bottom and I leave it alone with the exception of spraying a bit of hairspray.
I use a very old one inch barrel traditional curling iron. If it ain’t broke, don’t order a new one off of Amazon.
Then, I release the upper hair and curl.
Spray a bit more hairspray but leave it alone – this is my best tip to getting your curls to last. Now, go get dressed. Then, return to your mirror and use a pick or just your fingers to style it the way you want. This really only takes me about 7 minutes.
Recently, I have been itching to try out some new hair styles.
I did a headband one day.
I have a collection of headbands; none are from this season.
Headbands work best on me on second day hair. I think my hair needs to be a little flatter. So, I can curl my hair when it is fresh, then the next day, do this.
I still pick or comb it out and do a bit of water spritzing, then I add a couple of bottom curls.
And, another of my headbands. Place it back a bit and style some hair in front.
I picked up some 97 cents bobby pins and some $2.99 clip barrettes.
I do not know what I would do without my spray bottle. I keep it in the bathroom for hair and then in the summer I use it on the boat or at the beach. In fact, I am kinda famous for having a spray bottle now. My SIL Jessica taught me this trick for hot boat rides many years ago.
These hairstyles also work better on second day hair.
Take a very small piece of hair and twist then bobby pin in the desired place, groove side down. Did you know that the grooves are supposed to be down?
