Hi, my name is Joanna, and I'm a hairstylist. Today, I'm going to show you a few ways to style scrunched hair and all you're going to need are a few bobby pins. The first style I want to show you today is just going to pull your hair half up and a common problem I've noticed with curly hair is when you have it scrunched, what do you do with your bangs? They kind of just flop in your face so the first thing I always do is just kind of pin them back, pin them up in just a fun little funky way. So just kind of twist them up, just so they're up off your face. And since usually when your hair is scrunched, it's a little bigger, you already have the volume, all you have to do is just put it where you want it. So I'm going to just take my hair, just take one side at a time, just kind of pull it up, get the volume that I want, see if it looks good, grab a few pins and do the same thing on the other side. I always kind of like a little bit down in my face. I always think scrunched hair is just more fun and sassy so, just kind of pull it up. There's definitely not a right or wrong way to do this, and pin, a little more and there you have it. A little more polished, a little more tame than just the big curly mess and it has a little bit of sass to it. The second style I'm going to show you today is a little bit more of an updo but a really casual updo. You can either dress it up if you want to, if you're going to go out or you can even wear it to the office. So I'm going to start again by taming some of these bangs and I'm just going to kind of twist them up out of the way and I'm going to set them back into a twist. So you're going to start almost like a French braid but you're only going to take two sections. So you take your two sections and you're only going to pull hair from the front, just from one side, switch sides, pull hair from the front, do this just a couple more times and this just kind of helps keep those bangs out of the way and I kind of push it back up so you can see the dimension of the twist and secure it in place. Alright, once that is secure where you want it you're just going to take your hair and kind of shake it down and you want it to make more of a lower messy bun look so just kind of pin it, pull it back, almost into a low ponytail, grabbing pins to secure in place. The thing I love about curly hair is it hides all the bobby pins so you never have to worry about people knowing how many are in there. You just kind of grab, put the hair where you want it and stick a pin there until it feels secure. And once we get it all the way secure I'm going to show you another secret instead of using a bobby pin we're going to use a few hair pins and I'll show you the difference. Just pinning and grabbing, really making sure it's secure. So from here you can see it's almost secure around but it's just kind of loose and falling out. So instead of taking a bobby pin, you're going to grab a hair pin. These are going to secure it in place but it's not going to add the tension that a bobby pin would have. So you're just going to take this, find the hairs you don't like and just push it down. It's going to hold them there and it's not going to lose that volume that you're going for. So you grab another hair pin, just push it in. These are great for around the face too. And once you have the desired look that you're going for, take some finishing spray and just kind of scrunch it to lock it into place and there you have a fun messy little updo, perfect for a night on the town. So those are two easy styles that any of you with scrunched hair can showcase your personality.
