Celebrity Looks Hair Hair Tutorials Popular Tutorials

Another Victoria’s Secret

Ok so after I saw the VS fashion show this year, of course, I started stalking youtube for BACKSTAGE clips. I saw that they used this technique on the models hair and I tried and LOVED it. Then… whilst searching for some hot inspiration I ran across a photo of Miss Marisa Miller. Her hair looks incredible. After some experimenting I realized the same technique was used to create her look. I am telling you I am obsessed with this hair right now! The volume is unreal.

I am not super excited about being in a photo next to her gorgeousness so..please be kind and focus on the hair…

I offer you this tutorial as an apology for my absentness lately. I hope you will accept the gesture…

    You are SO beautiful! Thanks for this tutorial! I never thought of doing it that way. I always use a hot tools deep waver iron, Have you tried using one of those?? my hair is super thick and goes to my waist and i can do my whole head in about 10 min. On the other hand this does look like the waves might be more full and rounded, so i am for sure going to try it this way. I was just curious if you have tried a deep waver and your thoughts on that if you have. πŸ™‚ Thanks Again!!

    FINALLY!!!! I found you on Pinterest (lucky day for me) & I’m in heaven! I own so….much makeup & it’s all so, blah. As an aspiring girly-girl I find your tips & tricks so helpful. I am making a shopping list of things I need so that I am able to try the make-up tutorials you have posted. Here is what I have so far:
    Makeup Forever HD Foundation
    Sun Laboratories Overnight Tan
    Tarte Lipsurgence lip tint
    Sephora’s Moonshadow Pallet

    So…I know I am missing the brushes. What else should I pick up? Ooh, the eyeliner……I need to go to the lists on your YouTube posts, but any other essentials?

    Thank you so much (love your hair & looking forward to the tutorial for the makeup in this pic…hint, hint).

    Your new Forever fan,

      did you use styling cream?That is really important to hold the s curl. Also, did you make sure the hold the curl while it cooled? if you don’t hold it while it cools the weight of your hair will drag it down and the volume is lost!

    Hello! LOVED you’re video πŸ™‚ I’ve been searching for one that has a good Marissa Miller/VS model tutorial for forever haha! Just one question for you. What type of layers do you have? And how would you best describe them to a stylest? I’ve got about the same length as you, mine hits probably mid boob and my hair is fine however I have a ton of it so it ends up being thick! I know that they help break up the hair and help it to hold a curl better but I feel like everytime I tell my girl how to cut it it ends up being stacked layers that don’t blend :/ Thanks so much!!

      UGH! It is so hard to find someone who can cut layers into long hair without looking like jen aniston from the 90’s! I have fine thick hair too. I just tell my stylist I want layers that start mid neck and then blend the crap out of them! but yes the layers are so important without them curl just won’t stay! THanks stevie!

    Hi! Out of curiosity, what basic makeup brushes do you recommend? I’ve seen a couple of your tutorials (which are awesome, b-t-dubs) and without having to go through them all again and take note of the brushes, which ones do you recommend? For cheeks, eyes, etc… As a suggestion, I think it would be awesome if you could post a picture of your brushes lined up on a white piece of paper (so we can see the angles, width, length) of the brush heads. It’d be nice to get the opinion of someone who isn’t working in a store, telling me I need every brush alive. Gracias..! =)

        I used a 2″ curling iron and I got more compliments on my hair that day than I have in a very long time! Love this style and I’m going to continue to master it! I’m a hairdresser and have tried this on a few clients and they love it! Thank you for this and I look forward to watching more tutorials πŸ™‚

    I love your hair!! My hair is about middle of my back or lower. I usually just straighten it and thats it. But, I got a new curling iron from remington 1 and 1/4 barrel. I also got this thicking cream I thought I try using called Fat Hair. But it totally didn’t work. My hair is think and long. I just curled my hair and the curles just fall back out. I used hair spray and it still really didn’t hold. If you could help me out what is the best curling iron and styling cream I would appreciate it. I really love this hair!!

    Thanks,
    Courtney

      Hot tools all the way for the curling iron and either 1″ or 1.5″ the styling cream I used was Paul Mitchell but honestly any styling cream will do I just happened to have this one.

    I have to laugh because I have never seen your blog before (now going in my Google reader), I read that part about not judging anything by the hair and I thought that YOU were the “celeb” and the blond girl was you! Just my opinion, but you are prettier than her! Love the hair btw and can’t wait to try it! although my hair SUCKS at keeping curl!

    I have relatively thin hair, but a lot of it, that is pretty straight. I cannot get it to hold a curl to save my life. The ends will curl, but it is almost like my hair is too heavy to hold any kind of curl, no matter how hot I get it on the curling iron. What can I do to get it to hold a curl like this one or the Megan Fox tutorial? I love the look, but short of a perm, it seems impossible.

    I came across this video on Pinterest a while back and since my bday is on Thursday and I want to look fabulous I decided that I would do a test run today with your tips. I LOVE it. Granted, I need more patience and I hurried through it while taking breaks to deal with a cranky 4 year old lol but still, it was easy. At first I was concerned it would give me this crimpy look and not be cute at all but once all of my hair was done I just tousled it a bit and it looks so great! I HATE curling my hair and have zero time to do it anyway. Since I wasn’t as liberal with hairspray and other product as I should have been, it did start to fall out halfway through the day. I pulled it back into a loose bun and gave it a light spritz with hair spray and once it dried I pulled my hair back down. Almost good as new! lol

    Thanks so much for this!
