Hi, my name is Claire. I’m a hairdresser. I’m going to show you how to style long hair so it does not hang into your face. So, what I’m going to be using is a beach wave spray, a curling iron. And, we’re going to start with the beach wave spray and just do a couple spritzes. You don’t need to do too much, it’s just going to help put a little bit of texture into your hair. And then, just take your fingers and kind of run it through, make sure that it is all the way through all of your hair. Then, you’re going to just take sections of your hair and do a rope curl. So, you’re going to open up your iron, and take your section, and just wrap your hair around the barrel, wrapping and twisting around the barrel. Hold it there for a few seconds, and then just let it drop. Now, you want to direct the hair to go away from your face, towards the back of your head. So, inserting it into the barrel, and then wrapping away, just like that. Then, we’re going to do a couple on the other side. Wrap away from your face, twist it, and let it drop. Just keep following that technique, and then your hair will go away from your face pretty easily – it’ll start getting into that direction. And then, we’re just going to take a couple bobby pins, and with the front section of hair you’re just going to start to twist a little bit. Just keep it nice and smooth. And then, just grab little pieces of your hair to add onto it. Keep twisting. I like to keep a little bit on top of the ear free. Just keep twisting. And, once it seems to you how far back you want it to go, then just secure that with a bobby pin. Sometimes, I like to take another bobby pin and just cross over top to make sure that it stays very secure. If you feel like touching up curls with your curling iron after you do that, go ahead and do so. I’m going to do one right here. Same technique – twist and wrap away from the face. Let it drop. Then, on the other side, the hair’s already going away from your face, there you can see on the side. Then, you have a cute little style. My name is Claire, and this is how you can style your hair so that it doesn’t hang into your face.
