As Per Your Request - Instructions/Tutorial

Okay, peeps! I've had a few people who were curious about the no heat headband curls that I talked about here. Because of that, I've decided to just make my own tutorial video (which is now a work in progress - I'll finish it in the morning when I wake up, and post it tomorrow) and write up some step by step instructions for those of you who want to try it tonight. [Please excuse the awful pics, they're screenshots from the video.

1. After showering and towel-drying your hair, gather the following: a headband, anti-frizz serum, and hairspray.
2. Part your hair where you normally do when you wear it down.
3. Put the headband on "hippy style."
4. Apply anti-frizz serum to the ends of your hair.
5. Take a section at the front of your hair, and wrap it around the headband.
6. Continue to do this with equal-sized sections of hair until you have one last section at the back of your head. Take that section and wrap it around the headband as many times as you can. [Ewww... My arm looks like someone else's! Weird.]
7. Tuck everything into the headband. No strays!

8. Spray your hair with hairspray, and get some beauty sleep!
9. When your hair is completely dry in the morning, gently pull the headband away from your head while unrolling the hair. If all is well, your curls should look like this (old pic, sorry... can't go into the future!):

Lisa @ Organized Chaos said...

You are probably getting tired of my comments on this But I just wanted to tell you that your video tutorial was awesome. I would so do that if my hair were longer. It was actually more than halfway down my back when I chopped it off 4 years ago! lol~ Wish I would have known about this then! ~

Alyx said...

Bahahaha, @Lisa - it's seriously ok! I'm glad it was understandable!
PS I had literally just gotten back from reading your blog when I saw your comment.... Vegan cupcakes, eh? Hmmmmm. They're on my to-do list.
