Bonjour ladies, PLL here to answer some of your hair related questions! I picked a few for this week, and will work on getting the other ones answered too :)
Well Miss April, I got ya covered. First, I love love your bangs. So stinking cute. I like your hair longer, so I agree, I wouldn't take much off. As far as color goes, no dyeing,-I also agree-but have you thought about some natural highlights? Maybe some copper-y ones, not chunky at all of course.
Thoughts?? I love this color.
As far as perms go, I am no expert, but when I hear perm I think of this-
PLUS... it is kinda permanent (kinda permanent?) anyhoo, I would advise against that at the moment, and maybe try to get a fabulous curl look from this fancy contraption I blogged about here
I also think trying different looks is key for you. Not necessarily changing what you are working with, but changing the way you work with it. Make sense? I think all of these styles would look fab on you, and totally allow you to feel new and fresh!
For those lengthy curls, you could totally get that super fierce look by adding in some clip in extensions. Details and DIY directions here. :)
Hope this helps, and send pics of your new looks!! xoxo
Alright Beth, girlfrand put the teasing comb down for a second if your hair is getting damaged. Teasing can definitely put stress on your hair. I recommend using this comb (it's my favorite)...
it has three rows of further spaced out teeth, so it is not creating as much mess, but still getting the job done. I also take slower big strokes, rather than fast short ones. You would probably benefit from using velcro rollers after you blow dry as well, for added body with minimal teasing. (pssst...there is a video below of the velcro rollers!)
Well Kate, I slack in the long hair department, so I will have to find you a model for some long hair looks, BUT I can show you how I use velcro rollers to help add body and height to my hair. :)
Products I use in this video:
Tresemme, Tres Two, level 4 (any store)
Well hi there Sandra. I am so happy you already have some extensions, shew, half my work is already done. I like to incorporate my extensions for lots of other looks other than just wearing my hair down. I use them in ponytails, side buns, buns on top of my head, you get the drift. Basically, you can get any look you want, but you just may have to fake it with yo weave ;) haha. I filmed a little video for ya of how I use my extensions for my top messy bun.
Alright, gotta give away some secrets here. Kali, I do not wash my hair everyday, clearly. WHO has time for that ;) I usually wash my hair every other morning. I wear it down on the days I wash it, and up on the second day of no washing. I love the Psssst brand dry shampoo, it seems to really help with body. If you are washing at night, I would always blow dry it, not air dry it, if you are wanting to wear it down the next day. Also the next morning I would either flip your head over and spray some hairspray or dry shampoo to give it texture, or also put in velcro rollers while you are doing something else like putting on your makeup. I swear by rollers. Big hair says "I care". Someone said that to me recently and I loved it...
Hope this was some help girlies! You guys are so fab with your questions!!
Until next week! xoxo
