A major hair favorite

When I first posted this I told Nick I wished someone would pin it on Pinterest because it’s a really cool technique and I thought pinning your own stuff might be inappropriate or something. Nick thought that was silly and said “pin it yourself!” So I quickly pinned it and then went to bed soon after. The next day my phone was dead all day and I was out and about with Christian, when I finally got home I plugged it in and my phone was going nuts with notifications and emails. When I loaded my site I had gotten over 150 thousand hits on the blog since the night before when I was used to getting maybe 500 on a good day, it was such an exciting day and it’s still one of my very favorite posts and probably my very favorite hairstyles (when I have the time!)

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 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…

Using the right products is IMPERATIVE for the tutorial! I had so many questions from people who couldn’t get it exactly right and it was almost always product related, so keep that in mind:)
