The Pinterest Report: Hair Tutorial Pins

I think anyone that has played around with Pinterest has probably a positive and a negative experience. Or maybe, just negative. We all remember my stepping stone atrocity that was featured on Craft Fail. I had a friend recently tell me that she wasn’t sure if any of the recipes she had tried were every even made by anyone else, because they tasted terrible. A couple of months ago, I had decided to start two Pinterest boards about my personal experiences. I have one “Tried & True: Pins that Work”  and “Yikes! Pins That Don’t Work.” I am happy to report that there are definitely more pins that work than don’t, but nonetheless, I thought I would share my experiences with you.

Some of the pins don’t bear repeating. You’ve seen all the Handmade Christmas gifts I made. Almost everything I made worked out great. I especially enjoyed the dinosaur tail and the fishing set.
However, I’ve tried some things outside of crafts that have worked great. Today I’m going to share two hair tutorials that are pretty much amazing. Both come from the same blog. I should preference this that I’m not that great with hair. I mean I don’t burn my hair off like this tutorial, but I’m not much more talented than that.

I initially discovered this blog when this pin was first pinned.
So, here is the pin picture:

And here’s my result:


Not too bad, huh? 

Next up is this pin about adding texture and curls to your hair:



And here’s my result:




Now, I there are some frizz issues. I had a hairstylist many years ago tell me that when you’re adding texture into your hair, it might not be a bad idea to first comb it then add in your product to avoid frizz. Then avoid touching it as it dries. I found that also works, but you don’t get the same volume. So, at least with my hair, it’s one or the other. I'm glad I found this blog! It's been so helpful watching her videos.
