Get the Hair —» ABC’s ‘25 Days of Christmas’ 2006
Step One: Wash your hair with shine boosting products and blow dry straight as you normally would. Tip: When drying the roots, tip your head upside down to create extra volume.
Step Two: After applying heat protectant, give yourself a slightly messy side part around mid brow on which ever side is more comfortable for you. Next, section your hair into three parts. The bangs, the top half of your hair and the bottom.
Step Three: Once you have clipped the top two sections of hair out of the way, curl the bottom with a one inch barrel tong, working in small sections around your head. You don’t have to be too precise with this, as you can see, Genevieve’s curls are slightly loose and less uniform. If you want to, you can alternate your curling pattern by curling one section away from the face, and the next section towards, and so on and so forth. Once the bottom is done, take down the next section and curl just the same.
Step Four: When curling the last section; your bangs, make sure you curl away from the face.
Step Five: This is where the fun part starts. Now all your hair is curled, just above your ears, roughly section that top part with your fingers, leaving out both sides of your fringe.
Step Six: Working from the back, backcomb your hair at the roots in small sections until you reach the very front next to your bangs. Don’t backcomb this part as its going to lay over the little nest you just created. Tip: If you find your hair doesn’t hold volume very well, spray each backcombed section lightly to give it a little staying power.
Step Seven: After smoothing that front un-backcombed section over your backcombed crown, carefully gather this part of your hair at the back, pushing it upwards for extra lift if you have to. Don’t forget to also pin back the bangs on the parted side like Gen has here. To pin in place, put at many bobby pins in your hair as you see fit.
Step Eight: Now for finishing touches. Once you are sure your bump isn’t going to go anywhere, you can loosen it some like Gen’s if you want to give it a more carefree vibe. If your fringe isn’t as you want it at this stage, feel free to re-curl until you’re happy. Just don’t curl too much! :)
