3 Ways To Take Your Hair Higher

Hi luvs!

Today I want to talk about 3 easy ways to take your hair styles higher! Ya’ll know how much I love high hair. It has so much presence. It’s daring, bold and down right fierce!  I use a few key methods to achieve high hair that I want to share with you today, all which I’m able to get the most height out of when I style with completely dry stretched hair.

1. Pompadours: This is probably the easiest way that I achieve high hair.  My pompadour method is quick and easy and the hight can be adjusted easily. To see A video tutorial of my go-to pompadour method click here. If you want to surpass my rambling just skip to about 4:25 into the video :o)



2. French roll: The thing I love most about french rolls is the opportunity for versatility, which you can read more about here. Some of my highest hairstyles have been achieved with different french roll variations. The hight is achieved in how high you gather the hair and how loose you roll and tuck the hair

3. Loose flat twists: You can do a million and one things with flat twists, including create high hair! Loosely flat twisting a section of hair up front allows you to form and adjust the hight of your hair easily. 


So, next time you’re looking for a style that will command attention, consider taking your natural hair higher with one of these styling methods. 

Tips For French Roll Versatility

Good morning Luvs!!

So earlier this week I decided on a sleek French roll style. I’ve done this style before but whenever I do it, it looks different every time. That effort is of course intentional! I love taking a look and seeing what kind of versatility I can add to it.  The overall look is super easy to achieve and is a fun yet classic style to wear. 

The trick to the versatility is all in the shape. The direction you roll and tuck the hair and how tight or loose you roll and tuck the hair all contribute to making the style different each time. Here are a few pics of some different French roll styles I’ve come up with and tips for each look

1. For this look I started the hair slightly off to the left and tucked fairly tight and straight back. My hair was dry but only slightly stretched for this look.



2. I used completely dry stretched hair for this look. I smoothed the hair off to the left and tucked and rolled the hair loosely to help with the shape. The direction was from the left to the center of my head in the back.

3. For this look the hair was dry and completely stretched. I rolled and tightly tucked the hair immediately and carried through straight back.

4. This one is my favorite.  I started by pulling the hair to the left in a bit of a swirl. I tucked the hair in a very compact but high roll going diagonally.  The hair was again dry and completely stretched. Absolutely loved the shape!
