Rapunzel, Rapunzel

Rapunzel, Rapunzel lets down her long hair

Sometimes, Rapunzel wants to wear her hair in ravishing ringlets instead of simply long. Straight, long, medium/thick textured hair is heavy and it often challenged with volume and body.

In order to achieve anti-gravity curls, I set the hair in pin curls (imaginary hot rollers created by hand and clips) for at least 30 minutes to let the curls fully set. Then, I backcombed the hair around the crown to create volume.

Rapunzel exclaimed she has never had her hair so bouncy. It’s a fairy-tale come true.

Tale of Two GlamOh’s

September 2, 2009

In Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dicken juxtaposes the lives of French peasants vs. aristocrats during the French Revolution. Here, I did two versions of glam, sleek vs. sexy. Don’t be mistaken, though, both of these looks are “rich”!

French Twist
French Twists can be executed in dozens of ways as long as you have the foundation for the look, the twist on the lower portion of the hair.

I added some curls and structure in the front for more texture.

“Victoria’s Secret” Hair
Big, sexy waves are the signature of Victoria’s Secret models. In order to achieve this look, use a curling iron or hot rollers to set curls. Once the curls have cooled, softly run your fingers hair through to break up the curls. Finish with light spray. That’s it.

You want a look that is natural, flowy, and irregular. No need to go in and fix every single curl or you’ll make the look too contrived.
