It’s here!! I officially recorded my first video blog (aka – my first vlog)! I feel so hip and young saying vlog. You know what didn’t make me feel young? Figuring out how to record this and then edit it. Because I had to youtube everything to figure it all out and every time, it was a teenager teaching me how to do sh*t. But I figured out the basics for my first one. So I’m warning you now: It’s not perfect. But I wanted to get something going and get comfortable with editing video and messing around with it. And that’s exactly what I did!
It’s so funny looking back at my youtube channel because it’s mostly filled with some random cooking videos from the past and workout videos. My last videos were posted 4 YEARS AGO!! So crazy how time flies. I asked my husband if I should erase them since I’m slightly embarrassed by most of them, but he said no way. Past is the past and you should be proud of it. So I’m keeping those videos there, frozen in time for all to see! Hopefully we can keep getting better with the quality, ha!
I’ve had many people ask me how I curl my hair and rather than writing it down and showing you individual photos, I decided a video would be the best route! Some things I recommend but didn’t mention in the video:
- The smaller amount of hair – the better. If you take too big of chunks, you’ll tend to get a dent in the hair since it can’t all fit comfortably in the curling iron. So take smaller chunks. Sure, it takes longer but it’s worth it.
- If you have straight hair, you don’t really even need to use the straightener. I know it’s an extra step, but for me (a person with slightly frizzy hair) this makes all my hair look smooth instead of just the curl.
- Remember: curl away from the face and curl from the root down. If your hair tends to not hold a curl very well, be sure to press the curl up while still hot and let it cool slightly before letting it go.
- I rarely use hairspray because I don’t like the feel of it and don’t love how it looks always, but you are welcome to! I just try to tease my hair a lot to give it volume since it’s kind of thin.
- This may say effortless looking curls, but it’s not effortless. It takes a little work for sure, but once you get the hang of it, it gets easier and easier each time!
