Have you heard of Pinterest? I’m assuming the answer is yes because I’m pretty sure I’m one of the last people on this bandwagon, but if you haven’t checked it out, it’s a really cool website where you can create pinboards of things you’ve found on the internet. I’ve started using it to find and keep track of all sorts of things I’d like to try making (and subsequently blogging about right here). One of the things I’m really loving on Pinterest is all the pictures of cool hairstyles. I have long hair, and I love creating fun hairstyles, so I’m going to start trying out the styles I find and blogging about the good ones.
Today I’m going to write about some fun curls that I found a picture of on Pinterest that originally came from this youtube video. These curls are great because they require no heat so they won’t damage your hair. The only downside to them is that the results are a little unpredictable as it is difficult to make all the curls exactly the same.
Start by brushing and parting your air-dried hair.
Place a stretchy headband over your hair.
Starting on one side of your part, pull a small section of hair up and around the headband.
Continue wrapping strands around the headband until you’ve finished half of your hair.
Do the exact same thing to the other side of your hair, leaving a gap on the back of the headband so there will be room for the last step.
Finally, when you get to the last strand, wrap it around the headband multiple times and then tuck in the last little bit. (This is what you were leaving room for in the last step.)
And now it’s time to leave your hair alone and go to sleep (or wear it around all day because it really is kind of cute).
When you wake up in the morning, take the headband out of your hair and you’ll be all wild and curly (and in my case, sleepy) like this:
This was a really fun project for me, so I hope you liked reading about it!
