The tousled up-do. Got to have it. We all need it. Why can't I ever get it? There's a very fine line between a beautiful mess and just a mess. I think we all know what I'm talking about.
Last week I was invited to attend a Dallas Bloggers Event with FORM Hair Education. With the holidays in full swing, this event couldn't have come at a better time! I was in need of some real hair solutions and this class was just the thing I needed to get me inspired!
After meeting Whitney Haynes, the CEO and creator behind FORM Hair Education, I knew I was in for a real treat. Trained in Paris and London, Whitney has created FORM Hair Education as a "community of hair professionals committed to the growth of [their] craft, creativity, and continuing education." FORM offers client courses that teach you how to style like a pro in no time! They provided detailed instructions and one-on-one attention that left me feeling ready to conquer the world or any bad hair day with just a few bobby pins (or hair pins! There's a difference. No, really I learned that!). What I loved about this class was just how personalized it was. Whitney made a point to come around to each one of us and show us how to work with our different hair types. A huge perk for someone like me who has very fine (slippery) hair!
A Few Keys Tips I Learned:
- Up-do's generally work better if your hair has not just been washed (especially in you have slippery hair like me). For best results, curl your hair quickly before up-do.
- Work in sections. Section off your hair into thirds and start with the back/middle section. Roll it up with your hand and secure with a bobby pin. Then play with the side sections and see what looks best for the look you are going for.
- Tip: Bobby pins should be used for anchoring hair down. They're for the foundation pieces. Hair pins should be used the rest of the time. They help in giving your up-do more of the tousled instead of pinned down look. That is key!
