Happy New Year everyone! I enjoyed a much deserved break and am now back into the regular hum of the new year! Lots planned and new exciting projects coming to head this year and I cannot wait to share them with you.
This morning I shared a quick sponge roller set on instagram and I have included it here. My previous posts on sponge roller sets have been quiet popular so I thought it was time to one on longer hair.
Its relatively quick to do after you have set your hair. I set it yesterday and slept on my rollers last night. I set my hair with Lindy Charm Schools Setting lotion, this is available on Chrissys site here or at 19Black in Hamilton , NZ.
- Set your hair in sponge rollers ( these are medium size ) in the direction you want your curls to go. Make sure your hair is dry before unrolling, you can speed up the process with a hood dryer.
- Unroll and release the curl, if its dry they should be nice and springy.
- Gently run your gingers through the curls to break them up, don’t be too vigorous or you may end up with a tonne of frizz especially if you have naturally curly hair.
- Brush a small section of hair, brushing it over your hand to mold the shape and tuck those ends under. A boar bristle brush is great for this – I put my one somewhere?? so used my teasing brush.
- One you have brushed all your hair you can see how it is going to sit for styling.
- No backcombing in this style as I wanted a nice, soft relaxed day look.
- Hold any desirable waves with a pincurl or duckbill clip while you finish off your hair.
- Tidy up any ends of unwanted frizz with a little pomade. I use hubbys Suavecito – I love the smell of it, must try the lady’s version!
- Spray into submission
Add a hair adornment. I’m currently rocking bangs at the moment but you can sweep those to the side if you don’t feel like having them.
