Perfectly Pretty Hair Tutorial

Nothing is quite as classic and sophisticated as a half up style with a wrapped elastic. It's polished, pretty, some would even say romantic
In the video, I'll show my technique for wrapping hair around the elastic to ensure a smooth finish, so make sure you watch all the way until the end!

  9. This is fantastic! How did you curl your hair before you started? Did you do the loose curl or your full head curl?

  10. Love your blog! Unfortunately, my hair is fairly short and I can't wear it pulled back much anymore. I have tried your tutorial about curling my hair with a flat iron though and it worked pretty well.

  17. I found this today and it worked perfectly. I had curled my hair yesterday so it still had some loose waviness to it and turned out very similar to yours. I think it actually worked best because it still had some hairspray and backcombing in it. So fun - thanks for the tutorial!

  28. Even in these Wholesale hermes handbags online there are also lot of chances to get replica one so before buying any louis vuitton wallets you need to take a look at the bag and not only check out the overall condition but also you should check for the cheap omega watches marks of authenticity of the bags. It can usually be seen on the logo printing, find a christmas gifts stitches, cards, zippers and the texture of the bags. These things can really show if a certain swiss rolex is real or not.

    If you are looking for wholesale high-end catier pendents like Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Burberry, Fendi, and Christian Dior, The Wholesale waterproof jackets is a good wholesale suppliers' directory.

  29. One of the ways is to gather a section of hair from the centre of your head and give it a little back-combing to add some texture and volume.

    Take a piece of fabric and fold in half one or two times to make it thicker. Continue rolling the hair until you reach the scalp. Pin in place. Begin wrapping the hair around it like a curler and its done! I read this tip Dr. Cole Hair Transplant group- Forhair website which worked pretty well.
