Laurie: All right! We’re going to do something really fun here. A little bit of a great fun and we’re going to just chill it which is probably I was doing maybe so you don’t do things like by bumping it through, you know, what we’re going to do is we’re just going to break her hair forward. We’re going to take a thin, little slice right here of her hair. And guess what? We’re going to backcomb it. Now, backcombing is not bad for your hair if you do it right. If you go up and down the shaft of the hair, that actually could lock in those cuticles and causes it to break and be bad for it but what we do is if you look really closely, you just take it, go in and come out. And you kind of go in a circle like that. You just go all the way up and better leave your hair a hair spray.
Okay, just make a curl out of it basically. Roll it down. Just pin it. And then we’re going to backcomb this base, brush that smooth. Pick another and take the rest of it, bring it back. And then you just kind of mold it. You’ll just kind of play with that. Once you get the hair spray in there and shape it to whatever you want, you know, that art.
And I secure that using a little bit of extension hair. They are the colors that are in Tiffany’s hair. And let me just show you. These extensions actually have a lot of hair that they loose when you brush through them. If they’re clean, same thing with your own hair, if you build up or when you get hair in your hair brush, if it’s clean, you could actually save that and make a roll out of it. We have these little things that we call them doo-doo curls actually that we make that it’s just an old Hollywood trick. And they are just hair that we’ve wiped around the combs and then we spoon them with—which is the base of hair spray and then we make our own little curls. It’s really where you could save that hair. You could actually use and let that get bigger and bigger and you can actually have a great little piece that you could roll into your hair. So, just a cheap way to do extensions, little, nice extensions you give yourself the bump without using big plastic junk.
I brush everything forward and then you take that hair and you can then lay it down so that the ends of it go right on top of the back section of the part. And then you’re just going to pin that down and to make it stay is to cross bobby it. So, we go back. We go forward and we’ll do that, we’ll repeat that on both sides.
So, what I am going to do is just take some of this back part of this that I just added in. You just separate that on. That’s okay. And then you’re going to backcomb that. And I’m just going to go all the way up that hair section and then just roll it and there is my big doo-doo curl. Whenever our friends from Tennessee actually made or I think that’s a shooting—look like doo-doo.
Okay, so anyway, can you see what I did? So, I just took that piece and then I just rolled it back in. I wanted to come in this area and the hair, I don’t want it too forward. You don’t want it too quite forward and so that’s exactly where I want it. And then, I am going to take the front section of that hair. So, we’re going to backcomb that just a little bit. Now, I am going to bring that over and just smooth that right in. It’s very cool!
So, you can get this as bigger, as little as you want. I do get bigger actually exaggerate in the show, you kind of you know more clearly what I am doing, so that you know for yourself.
And so, I’m just going to throw in another can, backcomb that piece. In this summer, you can just curl the hair by that comb easily and then you just smoothen that.
Bring in piece sections of hair and you can just pull those back to be really cute. You’ll just see a little rope right. You just throw up in there.
You can do whatever detail you want. You can put a flower in or whatever. Very cute, very simple and it’s come to roll. It’s not a big hard piece of plastic in your head. So, that’s all you have to do.
