Hair Day

Posted on: April 3, 2009



Was playing with my friend’s hair the other day. See the difference whether you hide your ear behind the hair? The first photo looks more flattering because she has pointy ears. Look in the mirror and try checking if you look younger by showing more of your ears (yes show more skin). Shows interesting results.

Been spending the morning curling my hair. First, curl the front bottom ends. As you move to the back of the hair, curl closer (tighter curls) to the scalp. This will create volume in the middle and top portion of the hair. Notice the cascading effects? End by spraying hair spray to hold the shape.

Soft loose curls
Soft loose curls

Soft loose curls creates a romantic feel to the hair style. One of the most common curls for brides. Curl your hair using the styling rod and hold it in a vertical position. When you release the rod, gently loosen the curl by pulling the rod downwards so as to achieve the soft spiral effect. After that you can spray some styling spray to hold the curls.

Section the hair, depending on the volume that you want to create. Curl your hair by holding the curler in a vertical position. Hold the curler in present position and release gently. Do not pull the hair downwards.
Finally I am getting down to doing hair styling! After I have master this, I can do my own hair for my wedding in December! Watch out for more hair curling techniques.

(T) Used the heated hair tongs for tight curls. Did outward curls from the ears down. I look rather mature however certainly creates volume if you want to especially when you want to tie them up.
(B) Inward curls and only on the ends of my hair which I think suits me more and gives a soft and feminine look. Think I would do this for my wedding.
Multi-stylist hair tongs.
Pro: For the layman, they heat up fast and easy to use.
Con: Only about 10cm long. Creates frizzy ends if you are not careful.
Price range: S$40 (for one tong) and above.
Invested in some heat sensitive ceremic curlers which are said to hold the hair without the use of pins and clips (As shown in a set of 6). Can be used on wet and dry hair. They come in different diameter. Since I have short hair I used the 2cm ones. They can go up to about 6cm!
Pro: Can do a full hair curling at one shot and would not create fizzy ends.
Con: Blow drying might be needed.
Price range: S$4 and above for a set.
Round brush
My favourite! Hassle free! Do not try to use it as a ceremic curl and leave it on your wet hair and blow dry. Trust me on that.
Pro: Great for daily simple hair-do.
Con: Lots of blow drying.
Style that you want to create involves:
– Length of curling/Blow drying
– Direction of curling
– Tools involved especially in terms of quality
– Sectioning of hair
– Hair products to use to hold
