tutorial: curled side ponytail

July 28th, 2011

I had actually planned to upload a different video today, but I had some technical difficulties last night and couldn’t get it working (ugh)!  But in retrospect, this video makes more sense, given the giveaway I have coming up for you guys tomorrow…

This was my attempt to recreate the hair that the amazing stylist from Paul Labrecque did for me for the Kaboodle fashion show in June — I totally adored the way they styled it, and sure enough, a weekend later I had to figure out how to do it myself. 

Caroline, who did my hair that day, actually gave me some terrific tips — when you curl every piece of hair in the same direction, the curls are going to want to join together into one big curl.  Inconvenient if you’re going for natural beach waves, but perfect for a style like this! 

Beyond that little trick, all you have to do is tease the curls a little bit for some volume, load up on the hair spray, and give yourself a little body at the roots!  Super easy, and totally doable at home.

This style is seriously perfect for a summer wedding, so let me know if you try it!
