Hi, I'm Krysta, and I'm a beauty stylist in Tampa, Florida, and today I'm going to show you a celebrity hairstyle for medium length hair. What you'll need today is a Marcel curling iron and hairspray, and also a comb. So when I think of, when I think of a celebrity, Bridget Bardot kind of stands out. I know she's an old celebrity, but celebrity nonetheless. So she went for that kind of sixties glam, messy hairdo. So today, I'm going to start by taking this section, spraying it with hairspray, teasing it. From about two inches up you're going to want to angle your comb down. If you have a nice tease, it will hold like that. Then I'm going to take my next section right behind there because I really want that kind of bouffant very glam, sixties glam look. I'm going to tease that, alright and I'm going to go for a third section, add it to your previous two sections, tease it, spray it with a little spray, hairspray. So, then you should have some big hair by now. Then I'm going to take the front, I'm going to take a diagonal section back, tease that and when you tease you should be doing the same amount of teases everywhere. So if I did seven here I'm going to do seven here. Alright, now you've got to take it with your hands and kind of work it down. The same thing back here, kind of just smooth it down with your hands. Now don't go into the tease so much, just kind of graze over it. And you can also take your comb, kind of graze over that tease and then Bridget Bardot was known for her kind of curly, it was kind of undone frizzy hair. So, I'm going to take a few sections and just add some curls, starting kind of at the mid shaft and going down, all the way to the end. You're going to hold it for ten seconds and let it go. She also had those kind of flippy bangs. So we're going to take those and kind of curl both of them back and then just kind of scrunch it with your fingers and then hit it with some spray. And there you have it, a Bridget Bardot celebrity hairstyle for medium length hair. And my most used tool in this segment was a comb. I hope you can recreate it at home. I'm Krysta. Thanks for watching.
