Let Your Hair Down Sunday

Obsessed with this side-heavy look but never have the guts to shave them?
Use this tip to create your very own  HEAVY SIDE PART and channel the cool chic vibe with a few easy steps...

photos/post/design: Kristin Ess

  • Find your super-deep part. Try lining it up with the very outside of your brow first. If that feels like it’s just too much, go a little closer in and line up with the arch of your brow.This could potentially feel a little uncomfortable at first if you’re not used parting so far over. If you really hate having that deep side part or if your hair just won’t cooperate for some reason, try doing what I did on Lucy Hale above– see how I went on a diagonal? It starts a little closer to the center and then diagonally goes into a heavier part. This way you get all the weight of the hair on one side but it doesn’t feel overly swooped. Don’t be afraid to take a blowdryer to it to get it to behave!
  • Use the finer side of a comb + some strong holding hairspray to make the side tight as you see in photo 2. Don’t over spray, you just want the hair close the head and the fly-aways to stay down. If you really wanted to go for a sleek side, you could gel it and give it that “shaved side” appearance which feels equally edgy + girly!
  • Now split the hair diagonally from the back of the part to the opposite corner of your neck. Start the braid behind your ear and go down and around as you see in photo 3. Use a tiny clear elastic to secure the braid on the opposite side of your neck. This elastic will be hidden underneath the other side with all the hair.
  • That’s it! Now you’re free to create whatever texture you want on the heavier side– smooth waves, messy waves, curl, straight, anything you like. Personally I like the messy waves with a little volume (like you see in the very top photo) but you really can do this using any natural texture.

    Let Your Hair Down Sunday...

    There's something about curly wavy hair that is oh-so-SEXY,
    The thing is... such natural waves are hard to achieve if you perm them at saloon,
    Or worse... spending all the time on curling iron and only find all you curls straighten up after 20mins...
    Now get you own big bouncy curls that LAST!

    photos/post/graphic design: Kristin Ess

    Firstly, prep your hair with your favorite setting product.
    1. For this look, you’ll want to curl your hair from the ends up. No fancy twisting, no wrapping it around the iron, just the way your momma taught you– rolling the hair up from the ends.
    2. Once you take the curling iron out, wrap the curled (still hot) hair around a jumbo sponge roller. SIDE NOTE: some of you may use or be wondering about using velcro rollers. I used to love them but the truth is, they break up that beautiful curl when you pull them out and tend to create frizz or static. I’ve never had that problem with these sponge rollers.
    3. Curl the next piece and put a sponge roller in right away.
    4. Continue until you’ve finished your whole head. Take a break to do your makeup, get dressed, make some coffee, read or go to bed if you’re doing this at night time. The longer you can leave them in, the better.
    5. Release all of the rollers gently.
    6. Brushing is optional but that’s how I get that soft glamourous wave. If you don’t brush it, you’re going to get more “locks” of big curl which can be just as beautiful. But either way, your curl will definitely last longer.
