Video Tutorial: How I Curl my Bob

Alright pretties, I know this one has been a long time coming!  You’ve been asking me for an updated hair tutorial for months but I have yet to get my act together and do one.  It’s not like I don’t curl my hair every week, I just never take the time to actually put on makeup and document it! #lazygirlproblems

In my defense, my hair styling is constantly evolving now that my bob has grown out quite a bit. I feel like I’m learning something new about styling it every week. It’s a work in progress!

Without further ado, here is my updated hair curling tutorial.

Step 1:  Start with cleanish, dry hair.  If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, you’ll want to blow it out first.  I say cleanish because my hair holds curl better with a little crud in it. If you need to soak up some oil or add a little volume, I highly recommend this dry shampoo.

Step 2: Get your curling iron nice and hot, it’s time to curl!  I’m using this curling iron in the video. Curl pieces away from your face, starting close to scalp and leaving at least an inch of hair out at the end uncurled.  Work your way around your entire head, doing the bottom layer first, then the top layer.

Step 3:  Spray your curls with a light hairspray (this is my favorite) and let them cool for a minute.

Step 4:  Evenly distribute a small amount of shine pomade on your fingertips.  I use this one.  Starting near the roots, gently tousle and separate curls, making sure not to pull them all the way through. I highly recommend watching the video for this part.

    Is this the same curling iron/wand you bought from JCpenney?
