Creating an up-do with no Bobby Pins!

Posted by

On Facebook and Instagram a few days ago I asked the question...

“How many bobby pins were used to create this look?”(check it out closer here)

It was great to see stylists guess zero and also comment on the technique I used. So, yes, the answer is ZERO!

Keep reading to find out how I created the look - without bobby pins!

1.Simply create a creative scalp braid (video below) around the entire hairline into the nape and then band the end together.

2.Create a small second scalp braid on top of the head. All the internal hair between the braids was then brushed around the head similar to a ‘snail’ wrap

3.The hair was then locked into place using stretch elastic, looping into the braids.

4.Once secure, the hair can be pulled out into a soft elegant shape. This is why I love sewing the hair. It allows for great flexibility and security! 

I hope you like my finished look. Its from my new collection, Tapestry. I have had many requests for tutorials for this look and others in the collection. Unfortunately, I did not create a how-to video. I simply created the looks for inspraition and some content in my upcoming workshops. I can't wait to share some new techniques.

Hope to see you in the classroom! - Sharon
