Dolly Inspired Hair Tutorial

Dolly inspired hair tutorialWe’re pretty huge Dolly fans around here. In this hair tutorial Katie is shares her tips for getting big, fabulous old country inspired hair! Enjoy…

Steps 1Step 1: Beginning at the top of the head (near the part), take a section of hair and spray the underside with hair spray.

Step 2: Tease the underside of the hair and continue down until all of the hair is teased.

Step 3: Flip the hair over and smooth only the top.

Step 4: Begin rolling the hair into the hot rollers by starting at the top middle section.

Step 5: Continue rolling the hair– doing the sides next, and then finish up with the back.

Now let the hot rollers sit in the hair and cool down. Tick-tock… tick-tock…

Steps 2Steps 6-7:  Unroll the hair from the curlers.

Start at the bottom and work your way to the top.

Step 8: Tease your bangs or front section of hair.

Step 9: Curl the bangs and any other face-framing pieces that may not have made it into the hot rollers.

Steps 10-11: Pulled the curled bangs up and to the side.

Step 12: Hair spray!  Use lots of hair spray to keep that volume and help the curls stay in place.
