Hello my dears!
I have some exciting news for you all! Today marks the very first post in my brand new series, Jessica’s Hair Parlor! For the kick off I wanted to let you all in on the action and have the exciting job of determining which style you want to see done first. Goodie! This is all you have to do: post a comment at the bottom and tell me which hair style, of the six shown below, you like best so that I can get the tutorials rolling. That’s it! The majority vote on one style will determine which one will go up first, so choose carefully, and tell me your thoughts! The voted style will be going up two weeks from today, because I have two foundational curling sets I have to show you first in order to do some of the styles below. So, lets begin!
(From left to right) For starters I made up this lovely style last winter called the Braided Pin Curl Updo, and I wore it with this western themed dress. I have already made a tutorial for this style, but I wanted to freshen things up a bit. To the right we have my 1940’s hair style worn with my every day summer dress. This was made with a set of pin curls, so if you choose this one, know that you will be setting your hair the day/night before you actually want to wear it.
Right up above is the style I wore for my ‘High-low Here We Go’ COS post just a week ago, and this one also involves a set of overnight pin curls. To the left I have a terribly simple style of three twisty buns all gathered around the back of my head. I wanted to keep things simple to mach the dress I wore for that particular sunday. This is a nice and easy one for any sort of occasion.
Now for the last two: They both involve a comfortable night’s sleep of sponge rolled locks. I can go either way with pin curls or sponge rollers, except I can get away with wearing pin curls during the day. Hey, No one wants to be seen with hair full of rainbow colored rollers right? The one on the left is from the Regency Inspired COS, while the one on the right was just an ordinary day kind of style, adorned with the nautical inspired Lilla Rose clip.
Goodie, goodie, goodie! I am just so excited to have this series going up on our blog! I know that you all have been asking about these styles for a long time now, so it feels good to have the freedom to reveal the steps to you all! Just a note: I have done video tutorials of my hair styles in the past, but for some reason or other, I would much rather put up the tutorials using photography. It will mean more writing for me, but I think it would work a little bit better. Why? Well, I feel pretty confident that if we get the right shots, you all will be able to fill in the in-betweens, and do the hair styles correctly. I will be giving you all tips along the way, so you won’t be left with your hair on end! Haha! 😉
