Hair Tutorial

I've had some requests from you lovely readers about doing a tutorial about how I get my hair wavy. Soooo, even though I can't stand seeing myself on video, I put this little beauty together.

So enjoy!

Video Summary:

I start by blow drying my hair straight. It keeps my hair from being frizzy (my natural wave is a big ol' frizzy mess).

You can use any size curling iron.

I grab a section of hair - the larger the section the looser the curl, the smaller the section the tighter the curl.

I turn the curling iron upside down, place it behind the hair and wrap the hair around the curling iron away from my face.

I just continue this over and over until all my hair is curly.

When you remove the hair from the iron you can hold in into your head until it cools or let the hair fall. Again, this will just result in tighter or looser curls.

If your hair is hard to curl you have a second option. You still hold the curling iron upside down but you will open the curling iron, put your hair inside the clamp and closing it. It'll allow heat to get to the outside of the hair and will end up in a curly result.

Run your fingers through your hair once it's all curled and you're good to go!

I don't use any products in my hair but you can play around and figure out what you like.

In Conclusion: I have been doing my hair this way for five years and I have no idea how to explain the process so if you have any questions email me at melk912@gmail.com.


  1. I love when bloggers who strictly blog do a video once in a while because I like to hear what you guys sound like! Haha yes I'm weird. You sound so sweet and your tutorial was helpful :) Like you I never put product in my hair, maybe only a fine mist of heat protectant sometimes. What is the brand of your curling iron?

  2. You are so cute! And I have always admired your waves, so I am so glad you made a video. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I also love when bloggers do videos because I love hearing all the different accents.. yours is just as cute as I thought it would be! Haha, I'm a dork.

    This was actually really helpful and you sound so sweet. I'm going to have to try this!


  4. Thanks for the tutorial! You are even cuter in video. Can't wait to try the wrapping technique-apparently that is what Taylor Swift does too. who knew? Thanks Melissa!

  5. First, this is adorable and I'm so glad you did a fun video blog. Second, I'm totally jealous that your hair will hold curl for two days -- mine won't hold for two hours.

  6. i so want to try this! maybe if i get up a tad earlier than usual tomorrow ... thanks for the tutorial! once again, adorable!
    Yours Mine and Ours

  7. Great video! You do have great hair. Can't wait until my hair grows out a bit so I can try this.

  8. You totally have the best hair on the interwebs. So THANKS for this - I am going to try it now (altho my hair won't really hold curl that well but I'm gonna try)!! :D

  9. yay! Thanks for doing this!! I'm going to try this soon and hopefully it turns out like yours because your hair always looks so polished!

  10. Tried your way of curling my hair on Sat night!! Love it!! I always curled mine a different way and it's good o mix it up!!


  11. YAY! Thank you so much for posting this and for sending me the link. I'm sure i'll totally mess it up the first time but I'll keep on at it! :)
