Ms. Pumpkin: Hello girls. This is Ms. Pumpkin. Today, I am going to do a hair tutorial. But first I’m going to share to you how I get – volume on my hair. We are going to be using one of these - . They use to use this in the 50’s and you can make this out of your own hair. So the next time, you don’t have to tell to – your hair and then you use— wrap it with a hairnet like this a couple of times and give it in sort of an oval shape like this. It’s like the shape of a bun and this is what we’re going to use underneath the hair to give it a little bottom. So, I hope you like the video.
Female: We are going to take a section of the top of the hair. Make sure that we get the same amount of hair on both sides so it’s even. As you can see, I’m not taking a lot of hair just enough to cover the fake hair that we are going to put later.
So, we grab in the section and we put it in the side and we could bring it to the front. We could also put a hairclip or something and then we are going to put the fake hair right at the root of the hair we have separated. We are going to secure it with bobby pins.
I’m only using a couple. But if you are going to wear this hairstyle for long time, make sure that you really secure the fake hair onto your head. And then we are going to cover the fake hair with the fake bun section of the hair that we separated before.
It’s very important to reshape it with your hands to give it the texture and the shape that you want and make sure that the fake hair is really covered. The advantage of using your own hair is that, if a little bit shows through, it’s not going to be very noticeable because it’s the same color.
We are going to cover the fake hair and we are going to part the hair on the back and we are going to make two little ponytails on its side of the hair. You can make it higher or lower and— well, this is up to you. You can also make a couple of that.
We are going to take the other side and we are also going to secure it with a hair button. As you can see I’m doing mine quite high, but you can also have low pigtails if you want.
We are going to secure the hair. I am using a matching hair band but of course you can use something with a bit of contrast and then we are going to make sure that the fake hair hasn’t move. We are going to reshape it and we feel that it’s a bit loose we are going to secure it with a couple more of bobby pins. You want to make sure that it is really hidden.
When we have the fake hair covered, we are going to take the curling iron and then we are going to slightly curl the end of the pigtails. I’m getting quite large sections of the hair, because I don’t want the curls to be to tight. I want loose curl. As you can see, I’m taking a big section and just curling it with a curling iron.
If you want the hairstyle to last longer, you can spray it with a little bit of hair spray when you unroll. As you can see we just got a little bit f a soft curl at the end. We are going to continue separating the different sections and curling them up. We are going to repeat the process until all of the hair is curled separating the chunks of hair and curling them.
When we have one ponytail done, we are going to do the other pigtail. As you can see, I have one hair that’s finished and we the other one that isn’t done yet so you can see the difference. You just have to do the other one. I hoped you liked the video. Bye-bye.
