Now that I happened upon your channel, I'll be binge watching your videos so I can also learn how to do awesome styles like the one I just saw. That fingerwave looks pretty cool. My mom just bought me 2 new mannequin heads and I can't wait to start trying new styles on them.
You just popped up in my feed and I have been devouring your videos. This particular hairstyle I'm so in love with. I guess I'm an old Hollywood style glam girl, because this would be my signature style. I just subscribed.
+Crystal Blue 😊 you'll find in this industry that there are several ways to accomplish the same things, especially where haircolor is concerned. State board and cosmetology school is interesting that way 😊❤️
+jackie heredia it sounds like you may have a couple of issues.
The first could be the size of the curls, especially on shorter hair than the mannequin has. Smaller curls will give you more definition.
The second sounds like you may be using a little too much hairspray, try to mist it from a distance. Using too much spray makes the impressions from the pins show more.
If you are looking for an alternative, you could also use open ended hairpins, they tend to leave less lines in the hair as well.
I hope that helps, and thank you for watching!
Im impressed by how great the hair turned out to be with what seems like a simple yet efficient technique. I was wondering tho, I have frizzy hair (around my face and nape) that tends to get back to it’s natural frizziness with the first wave of heat and drop of sweat. Do you have any idea on how to keep this look frizz-clean during a summer night event ?
PS: You rock !
Thank you for your kind and quick reply, I will surely follow the steps you gave me, ill even try to show you what your curls look like on me !
Greetings All the way from Morocco ! Know that people follow you from the other side of the Atlantic too ;) Thank you for your amazing work again.
+Imane thank you! Your first thing is to deep condition the hair with moisture. The more moisture you push into the hair, the less likely it is to revert when you get around humidity, etc.
Second, you can use humidity blocking products or smoothing serums to create a barrier on the hair. This way the outside moisture has a harder time penetrating.
Third, (but not necessary and totally optional) you can do smoothing treatments. Now they have some that last 2-4 weeks, some that last 4-6 months, and some that are permanent. So there are options for differing levels of commitment.
I hope that helps, and opens up some possibilities as well!
+paulinanila depending on how thick the bangs are, they can easily be incorporated into the style. If they are thicker bangs, sweeping them to the side can still look quite beautiful.
Thanks for watching!!
I loved the video and the waves are beautiful! I've wanted to do this hairstyle for prom for awhile but I don't have anyone to do it for me, so I was wondering if you had an tips on how to do it on yourself?
thank you Glamfam hope to see more video tutorials from you and hopefully one day I can meet you and get to work with you I'm a private hair stylist and I appreciate your positive and constructive feedback on my comment
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
