{hair how-to: sexy & tousled}

breezy-april-days
big-easy4

. . . before dashing out the door with a latte and mile-long to-do list, a very favourite way to wear my hair {besides a chignon, of course!} is in soft, loose waves, a little tousled, a little sexy and a little '70s -- wonderful for the work-week, but especially so for the weekend, but whether it's a downtown lunch meeting or a late sunday brunch, it's always perfect for breezy april days . . .

......................................................................................................

b e f o r eoy o uob e g i n,op e r f e c tot h eos e t
three essential steps, for just enough volume & bounce to be the building block of any style:

o n e
begin with freshly shampooed hair, for a beautiful, natural shine

t w o
massage volume & body mousse through the roots, then blow-dry hair smooth, using a large round brush if your hair is naturally curly, or a paddle brush if your hair is naturally straight

t h r e e
for body, you can use hot rollers, velcro rollers, or a large curling iron; for a curling iron, randomly twist slices of hair around the barrel and carefully pin up until cool, and you're set for any of the sexy, tousled styles below...


easy-twist

e a s y t w i s t
a ponytail on top, pulled up in the back, then turned over on itself like a bun--but only half done; one elastic band (and a couple of pins if your hair is really thick) should do the trick

u n d o n e u p - d o
a random parting, a few loose tendrils left out and a tiny bit of back-brushing on the crown, gently lift the top and sides, ease it all back and hold with an elastic band



big-easy6

s o f t b u n c h e s
let hair fall into a natural, off-centre part, then gather the lengths into two ponytails and fasten very loosely with ribbon just below the shoulders



big-easy2

big-easy3

n a t u r a l b o d y
or, if your prefer, for an even less laboured look, after hair is set, simply brush out just enough that it looks a little lived-in, being careful to not straighten ends, keeping a few relaxed a curls


......................................................................................................

{p.s.} previous how-to's:

h a i r
* a side chignon

* a classic chignon
* a double-knot

e v e r y t h i n g e l s e
* a braided brass hex nut bracelet
* a sweet nothings garland
* a classic english hand-tied bouquet
* summery ombré napkins

So that's what my look is called...honestly it happens because one I live near the sea and the air is perfect for this look and two, I am always running or rushing to the next meeting! Love it.

Can you elaborate on "pinning up" the curls you just created? It would be so helpful! Thanks xo.

{this is glamorous} [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

maggie may -- certainly :) just take the piece of hair that you've just curled and loosely pin it up so that it is easier to work with a new section to curl -- a large metal salon clip would work -- hope that helps! x

these are wonderful looks + how-to's—thank you for sharing them! I might have to try the slight up-do tomorrow... it's my Mum's Birthday, church and work all in one day, so I think it will be the ideal look :)

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.

xoxo,
Sarah


p.s I came across the most pretty vintage teacup, with a scalloped edge, pearly interior, in pale pink, with gold detailing and wished that I could send it to you...

This is so beautiful and so helpful. Must admit that I'm completely in the dark when it comes to styling my own hair, truly! Each time I try to style, never quite turns out how I imagine or hope so I usually end up wearing it down straight or up in a bun. However this looks possibly doable so I'm going to give it a try! Thank you for sharing and convincing me to put forth a little more effort. It looks gorgeous.

i don't get how you did the easy twist got any more tips on how to pin it up?

{this is glamorous} [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

anonymous -- yes -- pull hair into a ponytail on top of your head, fold forward and in half, then pin it under
