It’s been a while since I did a hair post, and my hair has grown out quite a lot since The Simple Gibson Tuck, and also, I’m not wearing a sweater with horizontal stripes, so improvements all around.
I decided to give this popular one a try:
And again with the red hair, I know. I still don’t have red hair, so brown will have to do.
In the interest of full disclosure, I skipped all that shit at the beginning about blow-drying and using a curling iron and teasing your roots. I haven’t washed my hair in a couple of days, so I figure the texture was already there. Dirty hair: the poor woman’s updo prep.
I got about as far as twisting the hair up to my ear. And then I ran out of hair. I realize that this is not a problem with the tutorial, but let’s be honest: most of the problems on this blog are not with the tutorial. They are with the tester. In this case, the problem is with the tester’s hair length. Not lengthy enough. Boo.
There were also many out-takes before I could get a decent picture to show you.
Hair photography: another skill which I do not possess.
Eventually, I managed to get a half-way decent one. Still a little blurry, but hey, I was holding my phone behind my head at a strange angle. I’m surprised it only took that many tries, honestly.
Maybe I’ll try again sometime when I have longer, redder hair.
