There are many different ways to destroy your jeans, but the first thing is, you have to have that destructive attitude. Know that we're going in here to tear something up. So, come on, and let me show you how to do it. So, what you want to do, I like, a lot of people like using razor blades, but it's kind of whatever you have. Like, I have a paper clip right now. I kind of just destroyed the paper clip, and what I like to do, is go in on my jeans. As you can see, I already went on in on these once, but I am not afraid to do it again. And, you kind of just want to go in, and rip it up the same way. Now, these, like, you see where this is going with this? All those little distress marks then become all these fun marks. You see that? That's how you do that. It's like, they're all different things that make jeans fabulous and give great characteristic. Now, another way, what you want to do if you want to just start, you know, if you want all of this jazz, you just have to go right in on it. Rip it up. Get right in there with your scissors. Remember, be careful, hold it like this, and try to get a grip kind of scissor. You want to go right in and tear it all up. And, you see how it's already starting? It's a destructive, kind of, you know, it's a good amount of force that I am putting on the scissor to get these looks. Plain jean, here we go. Be careful. And, you do, you want to just get destructive and go at it. You want to just get right with it. You see that? It's already starting to do all that jazz that you want. And, you want to put a little bleach on it, that's going to make it give it a little more distress around that area. Not a lot, but you want to kind of, you know, you see the droplets? That's the kind of look you want. And then, when it's all said and done, you're going to let them do whatever they're going to do. Take them out if you don't like it, start all over again, they're your jeans. And, like I always say, you want to use a mock jean, not the real jean, so you know what it's going to do. Then, when you take them out, you're going to have all this jazz. You see all this P.W. extra good jazz there all in my knee, you know, and then all in the thigh. But, you know, however you want it. Whether you want it, it's a great way to do everything. You can do it tastefully, or you can just, you know, be a rock star if you want to, party all day. Well, it's your girl, P.W., signing off for the how-to.
