PILE OF CURLS

PILE  OF CURLS

The idea is simple—just pile on the curls—but this hairstyle looks very complicated: impressive, eye-catching, and supremely stylish HEAT PROTECTANT CURLING OR FLAT IRON TAIL COMB  LARGE HAIR CLIPS BOBBY PINS DECORATIVE HAIR CLIP (OPTIONAL) HAIR SPRAY.


PILE  OF CURLS

1. Prep the hair with a heat protectant to prevent damage. Curl your hair inward (toward your face) with a curling iron or flat iron)

2. Use a tail comb to part the hair from ear to ear across the top of your head, creating two sections, front and back. Pul the front hair forward and secure on each side with large clips. This wil keep the front sections out of the way while you’re working with the hair in the back. Now divide the hair on the back of the head into an upper and a lower section using the tail comb. Lift the upper section forward toward the face and tuck it out of the way with a clip.

Lift the upper section forward toward the face and tuck it out of the way with a clip.

3. Brush the lower section upward and gather the hair into a tail that you twist one turn, then secure two or more bobby pins across the twist (at least one from each direction). Crossing bobby pins “locks” them in place, making the end result more stable. Make sure the bobby pins are fastened tightly and close to the scalp. Instead of using bobby pins, you could also use a stylish hair clip across the twist.



4. Take hold of the top of the twisted section and rol it into a loop about two fingers thick. Place the loop directly on top of the crossed bobby pins to hide them. Pin one or more bobby pins into the loop to secure it.



5. Remove the clips from the upper section of the hair on the back of the head. Divide it into smal er sections. If you gather the hair diagonal y, your partitions wil be less visible in the final ’do.



6. If you’d like more volume, tease each section a bit before you curl it. Then wind it into loops by wrapping the hair around two fingers. Place the loop where there is room and it looks best. Alternate winding up on your left and your right hand. Gently lift the loops off your fingers and make sure the tips are placed against the head, between the scalp and the curl, at the base of the loop. Let the loop stand up like a cylinder and secure by pinning it down inside the loop towards the scalp with bobby pins.


7. Remove the clips from the side hair, which has until now been tucked away. Brush lightly, then divide into smal er sections.



8. Work according to the techniques for Victory Rol .  Wind loops onto two fingers, clockwise on your left side and counterclockwise on your right. Then gently remove the loop from your fingers and wind the last part of the section into the loop. When the loop is finished, tip it toward the back. Secure it in place with one or two bobby pins at the top of the loop. Try to push the pins in a bit to make them less visible.

9. The bangs (see photo are treated like a Side Rol ).



10. To set the style, mist hair with several thin coats of hair spray, which increases hold.

Tip! Making a pile of curls is a bit like assembling a jigsaw puzzle. If you’re not happy with the hairstyle, there’s no need to let all the hair down. Simply remove pins from the loop you don’t love and redo it or change the direction of the curl.
