Video logs about hairstyles.
It’s what I watch when I can’t sleep until 3AM and am out of lives on Demi Lovato or Blossom Blast.
So many videos featuring 20-somethings with a million followers and perfectly even hairlines.
My hairline is crooked-always has been. Hence my need for bangs.
“10 easy hairstyles for Spring?”
Braids and bows, really?
The last time I wore a headband was 1982.
So what’s a more mature girl supposed to do?
Make my own videos?
“No… because Creepers” says my husband.
I managed to find some videos that were really helpful and then I shopped for products.
It seems that the trick to doing beachy waves with short hair is TRACTION.
You need a spray called a “texturing spray” for the curling tool to grip. Several different ways to do it:
*Texturing spray like “spray clay”
This allows a curling iron to grip onto the hair and for waves to stay in tact. I used the “actress method” – two CA actresses doing waves on short hair.
I’m from Texas, so the CA accent is hilarious to me:
*Flashback to 1983-blowdry hair upside down. I have had a full life- been to Paris twice
*Split hair horizontally 3 ways and clip the upper 2.
*Small sections down low, wider sections above
* Curl only the mid part of hair and not the ends, we don’t want to be a Breck Girl from 1974.
*Curl the middle section HORIZONTALLY. This creates volume for upper layer (mind blown)
I like Style Sexy Spray Clay and W8less hair spray (for travel). Look how wee it is (pink, top). Adorable.
