Happy New Year!!! I am FINALLY and officially back after a few months of work craziness and couldn’t be more excited about today’s post. It is my first official step-by-step hair tutorial! As you guys know, I’ve been doing hair for a really loong time, and have been talking about doing some tutorials for you for quite a while. So, I finally found the time to do this and I am THRILLED to show you guys how I get my clients date night ready with this easy, sexy hairstyle. For this tutorial, I will be focusing on medium (bob-length) hair. I will be doing some textured waves that look sexy and lived in. Follow the steps below and then let me know in the comments which hairstyle you’d like to see next!
Begin with clean, blown out hair. For this style you will need: a comb, 3 hair clips, 1.25 curling iron or wand, heat protectant spray, texture spray (or dry shampoo) and flexible hold hairspray.
Section off the hair into 2 parts. Then, I like to section off each side from temple to temple. This will make it easier to manage the hair. Make sure the section you are not working on is clipped away.
Start by spraying each section with heat protectant spray. Holding the flat iron diagonally, begin by clipping the hair in the flat iron and slowly sliding the hair through. If you want a more natural loose wave, begin curling midway, if you want a curlier look, curl closer to your roots. Here, I chose to curl all the hair in the same direction (away from her face) but you can also choose to alternate the curls for more texture. Make sure to leave the ends out of the iron for a textured, lived-in look.
Repeat on the opposite side, curling away from the face.
Once you have curled all the bottom half, release the right, front section and curl away from the face. Repeat on the opposite side.
If you want perfect looking curls you may leave them as is, but I prefer to shake them out and lightly run my fingers through the hair to break them up for a “lived in” look. I finalize the look by lightly spraying with a texture spray or dry shampoo and then a light mist of hairspray for added hold. There you have it, easy, sexy date night hair!
