So I decided after watching the videos I posted on Various Snoods and Hairstyle Inspirations, that I would give them a try myself. I mean how am I going to learn if I don't try and practice right?
Luckily a good friend of mine was over and I was able to take a few minutes away from the babies and play around with my hair. I must admit that seeing all the white hairs I have made my kind of sad--like all my natural color is leaving and reminded me that one day it will all be gone-tragic!
First I set my hair in foam rollers and then I lightly sprayed my hair once over. I then put on some simple makeup: Clinque Matte Cover up, Stila Mascara, Stila Cream Blush, Standard Eye Pencil (for eyebrows), and Standard Red Lipstick....and then you're done!
I think I prefer foam rollers but of course if there is a time crunch the hot rollers are fabulous to have. A lesson learned-I won't do these hairstyles with squeaky clean hair or if so then add some mousse to help with frizz LOL
I left my foam rollers in my hair for a few hours until it was totally dried but you can also sleep with them overnight. This is after I took them out for the "On the Job" look via the tutorial from Lisa Freemont Street. That's a lot of hair!
This is me after I completed the look. It was very easy to do BUT because my hair is longer than Lisa Freemont Street's was in her video and also because I have a lot of hair-it just wasn't the look for me. The hair was all in the front and on my face-I must have put ten bobby pins on each side to hold it up but my hair is so thick it wasn't working for me.
My attempt with Victory Rolls. I found I like how puffy my hair was because of the foam rollers and it was actually easier for me to do the Victory Rolls than using the hot rollers.
And here I am with my white snood from Cats Like Us and my vintage peach blouse that I love, love, love. It was given to me in a swap and it was thrifted *smile*
I completely prefer this look over the other. It was sooooo comfortable that I left my hair like that for hours after. I love how clean it felt and swept away from my face is the way to go for me. I loved it!
So what do you think? Did you try these looks out yet. They are VERY simple to do. If I can do them so can you!!!
PS Keep your eyes peels for an great snood Giveaway that will be posted after Christmas!!
