The other day, I had to do a Bridget Bardot, sexy, big, tousled hair style on myself. With Valentine's Day coming up, I thought I'd do a little pictorial on how to achieve this fun, easy look! (Also, I personally think every occasion, perhaps lunch on Weds. not just Valentine's Day, is a good day for big, messy, sexy hair!)
So to achieve this, you will need dry shampoo/texturizing spray/powder, a 1-2" curling iron/wand (the larger the barrel, the looser the wave), some clips or bobby pins to set curls with, a teasing brush/comb, some light hold hairspray, and a paddle brush.
1. Start with dry, day old hair. Spray dry shampoo on roots, and rub in.
2. section hair into bottom, middle, and top. Clip mid/top out of way. Begin to curl 2inch sections of hair, away from your face.
3. Once a section is curled, roll it up, pin it, and spray. This is going to give you a much longer lasting curl, and much more volume than just using a curling iron. When you are done curling, and pinning, you should look like this.
This next step is totally optional! I like to use clip in extensions, because I like really big hair! You totally do not need them, but I thought I'd show how I curl mine. While your curls are setting, you can do your makeup, scroll through instagram, whatever floats ya boat! Just let your hair set for 15-20 minutes. Then, take out all the clips, and brush out your curls.
Now, the fun part!!! Take the hair at the crown of the head, and sides, and TEASE that shit to the heavens! (***gently!** you don't want to damage your hair!) Spray with hairspray, and let set for 5 minutes. Brush the teasing down, give a final spray…..annnnd
WA-LA! Big, soft, sexy hair! Once you get used to pinning your hair, its a very fast process! Happy Valentine's Day, lovers!
