I was wandering my local craft store when I found this easy vintage holiday hair accessory. It was amongst all the Christmas ribbons. It is basically just a laser cut felt designed to be used as a Christmas decoration. I thought it would make a cute headband for Christmas.
My inspiration for this hairstyle is Brigitte Bardot, the master of the sexy bedhead hairstyle.
Start with the crafty Christmas ribbon of your choice, a glue gun, scissors, hair pins, and I'm using a little extra help for hair height from the recently released Rockin' Rollers.
Step 1: Get some curl in the hair. I'm not going for ringlets. Brigitte Bardot had amazing beach wave hair texture, so just use a larger barreled curling iron to get big wave in it.
Step 2: Add height. There is a specific way I am trying to add height here. I want there to be a sharp increase in the height directly behind the headband. I'm going to use the Rockin' Roller to get it. Its thin design makes a great hair rat.
I placed the roller a couple inches back from the hair line and teased the section of hair that will go over it a little to help hold the hair together and keep the roller from showing thru.
Step 3: Since I want everything to sweep back into this windblown look, I pinned all the hair back and hairsprayed at the front hairline.
Step 4: Add the ribbon headband and pin it in place for hold. Remove all the other pieces that are holding the hair back and finger through it for the tousled look.
