My name is Lauren and on behalf of Expert Village I'm here to talk to you about styles on the go. A lot of women, especially with long hair, tend to have their hair fall flat in their face as the day goes on. Most women simply tuck it behind their ear. I'm going to give you a little bit of an alternative for tucking it behind your ear. What you can do is if you brush all of your hair back, if you want to get some of that hair away from your face, you have two options, you can either brush it back, spray it, in order for it to stay back so as it falls better you have that extra hold. I personally am not a huge hair spray fan. I do not like a lot of product in my hair, I feel like it weighs my hair down. Something that I do if if you take your regular tail comb, and you can do little patterns, you can go criss cross back and forth, they don't have to be perfect, but what it does is prevents there from being a distinct part or you literally do is lay the comb, tail comb part right by the beginning of your hair line and just wiggle it back and forth, then when you wift, you wift up and separate. That's going to give you a bit of a criss cross pattern. I do it on both sides, wift that section of hair, we'll do a little bit of spray, just for smoothing, pull the hair back, twist it, until it goes down to the scalp, you really want to twist this whole back section, then you simply push it forward, grab one of your bobby pins, open it, and you're going to want to insert it going in through that twist and down to the scalp so that way it will hold it with using minimal pins, straighten it out, grab another section, same criss crossing pattern, again, wift, twist, push it up, place your bobby pin inside that twist, sometimes when the hair is a little heavy, you'll want to place two, like this one is lifting, so I'll go back in with one more bobby pin, I'll grab it from the bobby pin, twist it back down in order to smooth that backside and then reinsert another pin. You can also do this if you do want parts and separations just by doing a straight part. It's going to be more noticeable when you do the straight part; you're going to see the separation of the twists a little bit more. Back, push up, insert your bobby pin, going into the twist. Now, you can see the difference once I turn her head between the two twists. This is the straight part, it's very noticeable, the sectioning in between it, the top is not so noticeable. You can't really tell. So, depending on whether or not you want a little bit of a defined twist or whether or not you would like it to look as if your hair is just falling back like that naturally, would depend on the different part that you want to do. And that is how you can keep your hair stylish yet away from your face and prevent you from tucking it behind your hair continuously.
