I admire anyone who can make magic happen with bobby pins, some hair spray, and a brush. I do my best to make updos work for me, but I require a pretty detailed tutorial and lots of practice (like so many lots that my arms start to fall asleep before I figure it out sometimes). Lately, I have been attempting to find a forties style hair due that I can make happen without getting frustrated and giving up or the whole arms falling asleep scenario. I had all but given up my search, when I came across this Pin and Curl Updo Tutorial by Jenna of Let’s Go Sunning while doing an unrelated search.
This style was not exactly what I was originally looking for, but it was so good I had to find out if the directions were detailed enough for someone like me to pull off, whose hairstyle maneuvering ability is the equivalent of having two left feet A short list of do this, this, and that instructions simply won’t hack it for me. I was pleased to see that the tutorial provides both extremely detailed written instructions and awesome pictures of Jenna going through all the steps.
I did better on my first try with this one than I do with most, so I’m going to keep practicing till I do well enough to post a picture of my success! I doubt most of you are as hairstyle challenged as I am, so if I am able to almost do it, a good majority of you will be able to pick this up on the first try. Go check out the Full Tutorial over on Let’s Go Sunning and try your own hand at the Pin and Curl Updo.
