Casual Pin Up Hair // How To Curl Your Hair [CC]

Hello and welcome to my first hair tutorial for short hair I know, shocking I’m kind of over having chopped it off But also waiting for it to grow back I hope you really enjoy this video I have quite a few more tutorials with short hair to come I also have some taht I filmed way back when I still had long hair I just haven’t edited those yet But I really hope that you enjoy them, let me know down bellow in the comments if you try this look, if you really enjoyed As always all products that I use will be down bellow in the description Emjoy! Adorable puppy cameo! Oh my gosh, she badly needs a groom, what a fluffball! So sorry. Right, hello For hair to take the curl we want it needs to be the day after a wash or curl – especially if you have stupidly straight hair like mine. But, if you’re a wash every day type then just skip the conditioner to get a manageable texture. We’re going to be working in rows like this with every roller pointing away (or sideways if that’s an easier way for you to think about it!) The fringe two at the top will be pointing forwards as will every roller at the end of a line. All others will be pointing backwards. Got it? Good. On to the rolling have a little bowl standing by filled with one part Lottabody setting lotion to three parts water. You’re going to dip the sponge rollers very lightly in this- very lightly mind! A few of you have told me your hair is still damp in the morning and that’s most likely due to using too much liquid at this point. Remember we are just damping the hair From here on we’re using smaller rollers- check the description for more details- and we’ll be rolling backwards. Now we move on to strips on the side, remember the rollers will be on their ends. Take the length from top strip to your ear and halve it to get the length of your strip. Front rollers point to the front, back rollers point to the back. What I’m trying and sort of failing to show you here is that you should be tucking your ends into your roller on the side pointing away from your parting. Remember to roll towards the centre of your head! Let’s jump ahead with a dance break! Woo! And here we go: our finished roller set. Here’s my cute roller set, and a little dance and –oh look- pretty antique brooch! Well isn’t that nice Right, let’s get this net off my head, ooh, without pulling off my ears! There’s a specific way to take rollers out for this look so I’ll show you from behind. Identify the curve of your neck When unrolling your hair, unroll flatly and outwards until you reach this point, then unroll to the side. Work up your head, unrolling down to that special point then twirl to the side. And here we come to our final row on top of the head. this row of rollers should be uncurled outwards without any twirling at the ends. Now remember your front ones will go forwards- you can give them a little twirl at the ends! Pick up your tangle teaser and start brushing like a madwoman. And then it’s time for your bristle brush! This takes a lot of brushing but I promise you it’s worth it in the end. To smooth down and hold our style grab your Layrite cream. Oh wait, don’t forget to take your rings off! This stuff is so sticky it really gets in those little dips! Take three finger daps of cream and start your smooth… Brush through with your fine bristle brush! Now for the really fun bit where I look pretty darn silly- or ‘silly-er’ at least! You’re going to need some crocodile clips to hold your hair in place. Oh yeah what a look! Please note on the side away from your parting the clip goes above your ear and on the side of your parting it is below. That’s so we get a lovely swoop here! Ad-orable! We’re now going to backcomb the front of our hair to within an inch of its life. Whoa! Delightful. Yep, looking very foxy with this massive tumbleweed on my head. Back to our pomade, just a single finger’s worth. And smooth and shape, and smooth and shape. Grab a crocodile clip and pin it where you want your hair to crest. And then another clip to follow the line. Now we have our clips in place, it’s time to spray away! And so we wait for it to dry. Hmm… what to do…? Dance break! Or, you know, just stalk my friends on Facebook. Finally time to remove the pins… And as is my custom: fiddle with the hair at the front for a bit… Here it is; the finished look! I call this a ‘casual pin up’ because although it has the makings of pin up hair (flat on the crown and curls all around) it isn’t heavily backcombed and the curls aren’t too precise. It’s the kind of look you can wear and your friends will say wow but it doesn’t take too long and you won’t get stared at in the street for having hair that’s too costume-y.

    Thank you for the tips on dampening hair with sponge rollers. How many hours do you leave your curlers in in order for them to be dry the following morning?

    wow. Gorgeous as always. ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to have hair just above shoulder length to halfway down my back (depending on my last donation) and all I ever did was put it in a pony tail or bun. Anything else took time, patience, and product (Kinsey 0 straight hair) I didn't want to use. Now, I have a pixie cut and it's amazing. ๐Ÿ˜€

    i love your styles ,your so clever and gorgeous

  • Kit Fleck says:

    Hello, I really want to do vintage hairstyles but do I need a bristle brush or is it fine if I use a normal brush? Because I noticed you use the bristle brush to straighten it out, I guess all Iโ€™m asking is if I can use a normal brush to brush out some of the curls. Thanks!!

  • Laura Thomas says:

    Can this keep overnight?

  • purple rain says:

    Which hair spray do you use? xx

  • noname justus says:


  • Gemma Innocent says:

    When I go to look at the rollers on amazon it says that they are no longer available. Is there anywhere else that I can get the same sizes from?

  • Glitterandspice1 says:

    What brush did you use after the tangle teaser? The brown one? Just bought that setting lotion and it's in my hair as I type. Hope I love it!

  • Johanna N.W says:

    Iโ€™m going to buy some hairrollers for my hair but iโ€™m pretty unsure of how many and the exact sizes. Is 30 mm for the little bigger ones and 25 mm for the smaller ones great or what other sizes? Do somebody have any tips?

  • Emee Stacy says:

    I love watching all of these videos, even though I know Iโ€™ll never be able to do them. Which I know because I attempted the 1950โ€™s ponytail from the Back To School video, and I managed to follow all of the steps, but my hair is cut at different lengths to look best when itโ€™s curly which is always, so some strands were too short, and ALL of them were frizzy, messy curls that ended up making it look like a messy mistake, because I couldnโ€™t get the hair to smooth and the flyaways were almost all of the fringe, so I couldnโ€™t hide them. But if anyone has suggestions to follow these tutorials with naturally curly hair, including the rollers tbh because I love the soft curlers, I am open to suggestions!

  • Kennedy Russell says:

    Love you soooooo much where do you get your clothes they are so cute

  • Missy V says:

    Love it!!

  • Florine Couane says:

    U look like Kimmy Schmidt, you're too adorable

  • Panda Princess says:

    You bop around alot in your hairstyling videos, it's adorable. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Holly Smith says:

    Absolutely stunning. Thanks for the great tutorial, will definitely have to give this a go!
    Given the amount of brushes used and given your immaculate hairstyles, I guess you also must be using the brushes far more than others… do you have any advice on care? Mine always get so dusty, and I literally have to pull off the fluff individually from each bristle with tweezers.

  • Anna Baldur says:

    Significantly less casual than my lazy futch self anticipated!
