Here’s what you will need for my Half-up Half-down Booty Bouffant tutorial:
♥ Backcombing brush
♥ Sectioning comb
♥ Sectioning clip
♥ Hair band
♥ Hair straighteners
The first 4 steps of this tutorial are exactly the same as the Big Booty Bouffant hair tutorial to begin … however you are styling your hair this time, but these first four steps are the basis of successfully creating this look too.
Take a look at my Big Booty Bouffant hair tutorial if you need to refresh your memory, but basically, you need to section your hair off to fit the Hair Booty, leaving enough hair to cover the Booty. You can backcomb the roots of your hair if you are looking for an extra volume lift for this style.
I decided I wanted to go for a deep side parting for this Half-Up Half-Down Booty Bouffant tutorial. So you can achieve this too by parting your hair so it is in line with the arch of your eyebrow. Once you have sectioned off your side parting, secure in place with bobby pins.
Next you need to section your hair into two different sections. Using the end of your comb, begin from the top of your ear and work around your head to create a neat parting which separates your hair into two sections. Neatly tie the top section of your hair into a ponytail using your hair band to ensure it stays put.
Now it’s time for the styling of the hair left down! I decided to add some flicks to the ends of the hair to add to the retro vibe. This was super easy to achieve … I basically straightened my hair until I got to the ends where I then turned my wrist and flicked the hair straighteners up to add a flick to my hair.
Spritz all over with hairspray and neaten up any fly-aways.
And that’s it! So so easy and it looks as though it would take you hours!
Give it a go ladies, I’d love to see your Half-Up Half-Down Booty Bouffant so be sure to take some pics if you do try this look and pop them on the BobbyGlam Facebook page. ♥
