Good afternoon lovelies!
Today I’m putting together a photo tutorial on how to style a basic poodle fringe. This is a method I’ve created myself, which is best suited for longer hair; though it can be applied to short hair too.
For this style you will need:
Section out your hair, and style the back, and sides, leaving a fringe section pinned out of the way at the front to create the poodle fringe. For this style I’d typically curl the back of my hair (click here for this tutorial), and create two side victory rolls (click here for this tutorial) either side of what is soon to be my poodle fringe, I have ballet in a couple hours, so my hair is in a simple bun with two side victory rolls.
Take out the “fringe” section of your hair, and divide this into three sections. Start with one section on either side, do not start from the middle, as this will make step three a little more difficult, pin the other two off to the side with a hair clip or alligator clip.
Divide this first section into two smaller sections through the middle horizontally, with each of these apply a little hair spray and roll them up into a small sized hot curlers, making sure they’re quite warm before doing this, as you need these curls to be quite tight. Apply this to each of the three section, and leave to set for 5-15 minutes, depending on how long your curlers take to cool.
Take out all hot rollers now that they’ve cooled, as I have longer hair, I’ve then folded this entire section back, and pinned across this, where my finger is pointed in the second reference photo.
I then fold this section back to flowing forward, then pin each curl into the desired placement, you can make this style as poofy as you like by teasing the back of these curls. To finish this style, spray a little hair spray to set this, and smooth any stray hairs.
I hope this tutorial has been a little help for those out there who wish to try this style! I’d love to see your finished product after using this tutorial, please feel free to message me on Facebook, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos. Don’t forget if you have any Q’s about anything pinup, vintage or burlesque related, feel free to send them through!
