Raspberries and Vintage Denim. 3 DIY Hairstyles for Crimped Hair.

IMG_1731Hi Babes! Today I have some hair candy to share, this color scheme that I did a few weeks back which is inspired by rasberry jam smeared on vintage denim, and a general celebration of Color Texture Form which started HERE.


I used a cool magenta for her roots, (custom blended Manic Panic) then lighter pink in her ends, which marbled into blues and some dark greens and ended with streaks of denim blue over everything. Was truly a color bomb that kept getting better and better the more I added to it.

I wanted to share some quick stying tricks I did on her once her hair was dry and crimped. Crimped hair, if you don’t already know, is very fun to style because it acts more like wool and stays where you put it. Also, it is thicker and has much more volume and loft to it. It is very similar to natural/kinky textured hair so If you have that sort of hair or if you are very curly, try these hairstyles too!

I’m making it my goal to bring back crimped hair and encourage all different kinds of crimping, using heat, braids, foil, wire, etc. I love it because crimped hair looks great for days and days on end and is a fun way to break you out of a hair rut.

Okay also, a general question: Does anyone know of a solar powered hair crimper? If not, can someone get on making one?


IMG_1728Our first hairstyle today goes like this:

A braid on each side, two french braids down the back. Wrap the loose ends of each french braid and pin them into two buns.

Now take your two side braids and wrap them across the top of your buns, overlapping each other. Tuck the ends around your buns and pin them into place. Voila!raspberry

Next one starts off with a center part, and then 2 high twisted buns which leave the bottom half of the hair still hanging down.

Split the hair on the bottom vertically through the center, and do a tight braid on each side. Wrap each braid up and around the opposite bun, criss-crossing them across the back. Tuck the ends around your buns and pin them into place.denim

Next one is the same, except instead of braids, do twists. Twisting crimped hair is such a dream. Doesn’t it look cool?

 

Enjoy!
