Hello Lovely People!
I’ve been wanting to try out this fun and edgy style for a couple weeks, but I had to get my hands on some perm-rods. Luckily my cousin just got some from our local beauty supply store! Thanks Shay! Anyway, TheChicNatural on Youtube inspired this style. It didn’t look too hard at all. I’ve done frohawks in the past. You can check out my other post here!. But never using the pony tail method. I normally just pin the sides of my hair up.
All I did was part my hair into 6 sections and put them into pony tails. To be completely honesty, I totally suck at parting my hair, but I tried my best to make them as decent as I could. I recommend dividing your hair in 3 sections, and then part those sections in half.
Before putting my hair into the hair tie, I made sure I slicked up the sides of my hair with some gel and a nice bristle brush.
Then working from my first pony at the nape, I split the pony tail in two, sprayed the piece of hair with water, smoothed it with my brush and dab of gel, and rolled it up on the perm rod. I did this for every section. Then I just let it air dry for a couple hours.
By the time I got to the top of my head, I ran out of the orange perm-rods, so I used my green ones and actually I ended up liking those curls better. Now I know what I prefer for the future. :) I’m not going to lie, I’m a little worried about taking the hair ties out my hair. I’m afraid of snagging or pulling my hair out, just take your time!
I hope this helps!
