With all the Christmas and New Year's parties (I'm pretty soon that even after January 1, there would be a lot more parties), aside from eating all that yummy food, it's also time to dress up and be pretty. In going DIY, the makeup department can be easily taken care of with makeup tutorials. As for the hair, it can be quite an effort to do. With pretty hair, the look just caps into place. However, even professionally, hair can be a challenge to do and quite time-consuming, especially in achieving the volume department.
Thankfully, Pinkbox, a brand usually focussing on tweens accessories and hair accessories has a few hairstyling aids which can be used easily and jazzed up even if you have no hair upstyle degree.
I used this on a client shoot for her prenup. Her hair happened to be very thin and fine and the pouf creates a bit of fullness and height. Teasing the hair can help a bit, but sometimes we need quick reinforcement and less teasing, since teasing damages the hair. After curling the hair, I sectioned off the top part as shown
And then placed the hair bump near the crown, where I want some volume and teased the bottom part of the top section for more lift.
Then, I smoothed out the top over the hair bump and pinned the hair.
And instant volume!
The good part about this is that the hair bump feels really light on the head. My client didn't even know that I placed it there. It also stayed put (in fact, it's quite hard to remove. You need a gentle pull). She even bought one to be used for her wedding. "It minuses the time for teasing too!" She said. The cost of a pack of two of the hair puffs is Php 189.75 and it comes in two sizes depending on your hair length, thickness, and personal preference.
Messy and poufy buns are quite in also in the red carpet. girls with waist thick hair can easily achieve the bun as big as a giant siopao. It can also be faked with a lot of effort by teasing and setting the hair. For something fast, easy, and achievable, the hair donut is an easy way to recreate poufy buns on top of the head, at the middle, or side.
I saw also in a hair tutorial that a baby sock is sometimes used to create the volume. The black donut is an easier and lighter weight to do things. All you have to do is to thread the ponytail into the hole and cover up the bun with hair and secure with bobby pins. you may decorate the hair with flowers, feathers, and other accessories if you wish.
My own version of the poufy bun using the hair donut. I have a wholelotta hair and this donut actually enhanced it. I think this is the large size. There are three sizes of the hair donut - small Php119.75, medium Php 129.75, and large Php149.75.
These hair accessories work well with hair and are quite comfortable, making us not suffer comfort for style. It considerably cuts down hairstyling time so there's more time to be spent chilling out. So for that party and you need gorgeous hair, it won't be much of a problem now.
