Curling Iron Tutorial

Enjoy this clear demonstration of how to curl your hair three ways with one tool. If you want curls in the bottom of your half up style this video is a perfect resource for you. If you are doing curls for body and an updo prep, be sure to clip each curl after you make it. Once they are cooled, let them down and begin your hairstyle!

Coiling Technique Video: Another great way to work with long hair.

This video shows the process of doing coils in an updo or hairstyle. They are a lot of fun and can be adapted for different styles. Wedding looks, party hairstyles and everyday wear! No matter the thickness of hair or the varied lengths of hair, coiling is an option.

Teasing Video

This is an excellent example of how to get good solid teasing where it matters. When you follow steps and you know where the updo is headed, stress is minimized. If the client freaks out seeing you tease you now have the confidence to continue teasing, explain the process and assure her a beautiful style is unfolding. Remember, it is more likely the anticipation of special occasion that is adding to her stress intolerance, not you or your work. Always smile and be reassuring.
