Hair Tutorial - 80's Curls

80's hair tutorial
Today I wanted to share with you the results of my attempt at this hair tutorial from The Glitter Guide. I actually first tried this for last New Years Eve party, as it was an 80's theme. It worked so well I wanted to see if I could pull it off in everyday life. I love curling my hair but I don't like the idea of damaging it using curlers or hair straighteners too often. Well this is the perfect solution as it involves no heat whatsoever!

Please excuse the myspace-esque photos. I didn't have a Chris handy to take them for me. Also, I find it very difficult to take photos of myself without making silly faces, you may notice this in a moment...

When still damp (but not too wet) simply twist segments of your hair into little buns. (You have done it correctly if you are starting to look like Bjork or one of the members of Alisha's Attic) I also sprayed a little hair spray onto each bun as I finished it. Then sleep on it! In the morning untwizzle them and seperate the hair and you should have something similar to above. But whatever you do, don't brush it! If you are in a hurry you can also do this with dry hair, just make sure you use lots of hairspray, then leave to set for a couple of hours.

I was pretty shocked at how big my hair was to begin with! But it soon calmed down into some rather nice waves. It seems that my hair doesn't hold a curl for very long at all! Luckily I quite liked the way it tuned out in the end. One of those styles that looks naturally tousled in a boho, bed head sort of way. (even though it did take me a fair bit of time to achieve this 'I've just got out of bed' look!)

I've been looking at lots of hair tutorials recently. My hair is getting pretty long now so there seems to be lots more I can do with it, I'm looking forward to trying some more! Have you found any good hair ones recently?

  2. It looks lovely! I've tried something similar with rag curls and that did seem to hold the curl really well. xxx

  3. I did this to my hair when I was about 14 but with smaller 'buns'. I ended up with crazy curly ringlets. Yours looks great! :-)

    1. Yeah, I guess you can play about with how big you want the curls to be depending on how big you make the buns. I might try even bigger ones next time to try and make big waves. :)

  4. Looks fab! I like rag rolling my hair, and like laughing at myself with rags in my hair even more! (my rags are orange, which looks awful on ginger hair!) x

    1. Haha, I don't think the rag rolling process makes anyone look particularly attractive does it? The things we do! :)

  5. I love how it turned out! It's so nice!
