One that looks very much like a fishtail, milkmaid braids, or even a halo braid.  Except – wait for it… the back doesn’t have that ugly, white crack in the middle.  Hallelujah!  And we’re incorporating 3 braids, not 2, and 2 types of braids at that.

There will be, of course, plenty of teasing involved.  However, in this Brigitte Bardot hair tutorial video, I’ll go over, how you can “properly” and without (much) damage, tease your hair to create that “big hair” effect with the right products and technique, so that your voluminous hairdo will last you all night and into the next day even!

Everyday hairstyles that you can wear to a wedding, prom, homecoming, party.  Hair | Hair tutorial video

To create her, sex-kitten, bombshell, half-up-half-down updo hairstyle, that you can wear as an everyday look to school or work, and for a formal occasion  – wedding, prom, homecoming, parties, and so on;

first, curl your hair with a curling iron that is at least 2″ wide.  I used the biggest barrel from this curling wand set.

*make sure you do not apply oils until the very end of this Brigitte Bardot hair tutorial*

Just follow along to the video from here on.Voluminous Brigitte Bardot Hair Tutorial Video

I forgot to add that I brushed out my curls at the end with a boar bristle brush.  This is a step you “should” do, but not required.  It tends to “fluff” curly hairstyles, which will make your hair appear fuller and more voluminous.

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions - use DISCOUNT code : IRRESISTIBLETINA   ( my color #2 Royal Remy)

2″ Curling Iron

(click to see what I used on my own hair)

  1. Apply this before curling – heat protectant
  2. setting lotion – to make the curls last a lot longer.  You need something like this, if you have hard to curl hair.
  3. dry shampoo - to make your hair matte. We’re using this to remove “shine” in our hair.  I suggest you NOT using it on your ends though.
  4. texturing power / wax power  / powder hairspray
  5. hair-padding (you can use a rolled up sock instead.

Cute Messy Bun | Quick Everyday Updo Hairstyles | Hair Tutorial Videos

Hair tutorial : big, messy bun with braids video | everyday hairstyles & updos for medium long hair

This week’s hair tutorial video, by popular request, is an everyday, braided, big messy bun hairstyles for medium or long hair.  If your hair is short, you will need to incorporate a sock or a donut to make the bun.

I had some trouble showing my braids on top of my hair in this video, as you’ll shortly see, due to how sparse my hair is on the crown.  My hair started thinning out in my early 20s, and I, well, blame my mother…It runs in the family.  Anyhoo, so this is the reasons why I don’t do many, “braided” bangs hairstyles tutorials, although I truly do find them cute and easy to do.
To make this voluminous, braided messy bun, basically, after doing the correct sectioning in the beginning, simply half-Dutch braid – also known as the inside-out French braid, or a lace braid –  all the hair left out of the section, before incorporating the braid with the ponytail to make the messy bun.
Watch how I did it below
