good hair day / 2

Brought to you by Salon K. a full-service salon located at 5047 Edgewood Drive in Provo, UT.(801) 226-7985 open Tuesday-Saturday.


my friend Lindsay has flawless taste and if she sees something that screams "my friend Emily" she is so great to pass it my way. she texted me this image and i fell in love. it's such a modern take on a classic sixties hairstyle.
i then immediately texted my sister Bethany over at Salon K to see how i could make it happen.
this gal clearly has short hair,  so here's how to do it for any and all lengths.
start out with straight dry hair, any length will do.
tease the top half section. tease it real good.
 this is where you decide what happens next based on your length...
1. if you have short hair, you tease ALL of your hair.
2. if you have long hair you tease down the center to the bottom and leave the sides smooth.
3. if you have short hair & a few hair extension clip ins, you don't have to tease the whole thing. 

#3 is the perk to going to a salon to get your hair styled! i went with the extensions. 
then you start doing a french twist and securing it with bobby pins. here is a youtube tutorial that works for all lengths.
in the picture she has a velvet ribbon tied around her hair, but a regular old black stretchy headband works too.
here's what she used to create the look, all products are Bumble and Bumble:
 Mending to protect my hair while it was being teased into oblivion.
Texture to give my clean hair a gritty texture to make it easier to handle.
Hair Powder to get extra volume
and Classic hairspray to keep it all in place.


and your done!
 
 Bethany did a main french twist with the bottom hair, and took the top hair (the part she teased in the second image) and did it's own smaller twist. she held the last spiral in place and pinned it down to give it the circular finished look.
 thanks Bethany and Salon K!

go Bethany! from one hairstylist to another, I give her kudos because that's not a super easy style to pull off. Have you tried to do this to yourself?
