We've done a tutorial in the past on a punk rock pixie, but I wasn't really feeling the "punk" today...so I decided to do a similar style, but more polished.
Step 1: Product
While wet, apply some product that will give you some hold. I used Sebastian Whipped Creme. A light mousse, that also makes your hair super soft.
Step 2: Blowdry
You want to use a round brush to blowdry the hair away from the face.
Step 3: Flat Iron
Again, using the flat iron to smooth, direct the hair away from the face.
Step 4: Pin
Place hair exactly where you want, and use a couple of bobby pins to keep it there. Pin lightly, not too tight, to still give you that poof look.
Step 5: Spray
Didn't really think we'd get through a tutorial without telling you to hairspray did you?
