wavy curls (video) tutorial

After many requests I finally completed a video tutorial on how I curl my hair and get those big waves I have in all my posts. These curls are pretty much how I do my hair almost every single day, because I'm kinda in love with them. And just in case you forgot how my hair looks and aren't sure if you want to watch a four and a half minute long video, this is pretty much the end product:



This is my first time making my own video tutorial for the blog, and you can tell I'm suuuuper awkward about it. Stumbling over my words, pausing, trying to adjust my voice to the music and slightly failing. It was a learning experience, however I did learn a lot, so next time shouldn't be so bad. And now I'm kind of digging this whole video thing. So bear with my guys! And please forgive my quirkiness because I'm kind of a weird person. It's much easier making yourself sound cooler on the internet than you are in real life ;)

    1. If you use a smaller barrel curling iron, like a 1' you should be able to get pretty similar curls! And don't worry I'll link us :)

  2. Hey Lauren! I loved your video! I want to learn how to do a video like this. I do my hair like this too. I love wearing extensions as well. Where do you get yours? I use the satin strands from Sally's. They work great and look so real!!

    Do you find that people look at you weird if they know you have extensions? I don't usually tell people. But I know that guys usually raise an eyebrow if they find out. My fiance things it's a little weird. I think it pays off to wear them. YOu look so much prettier and sexier. LoL

    Thanks so much! More videos please! :)

    1. Thanks Ginny! I did my video on iMovie and just googled how to do certain things, like speed up areas and slow down others etc. My hubs doesn't really mind my hair extensions, I know some people that think they're super weird but I don't see anything wrong with them. And most of the time I forget they're even in. I got mine from ProExtensions.com though and I loooove them!
