    Hair Stylist Robin Harmon discusses modifying the curly look for prom.

    Robin Lee Harmon: Hi! My name is Robin Lee Harmon with Tangerine Dream Beauty Bar. Today, we are going to be going over some prom looks. We have just finished our third look with accessories. Now I am going show you a way to modify that look. If you are somebody that wants to open up your face a little bit more and not have the hair hanging down, you want to have it pull back a little bit. So we are going to go ahead and show you that look.

    Its very simple. Mainly what you want to do is you want to go ahead and take a section in an upward direction, separate it out and then just lightly twist it and pin the hair. You can keep it soft by twisting, that is what the purpose of that is. That is one side. Again the same sectioning in an upward angle, twist the hair and just put these curls straight back, and then go ahead and pin the hair. You can see when I am pining, you are pushing the pin forward and locking it right into that twist. So now this look is a great look to open up the face. If you want to go ahead and add some additional accessories, now would be the time to do it. Since we have already worked with a couple of butterflies, we are going to go ahead and stay with that theme. We have chosen a few different other colors. Just again, not really any organized placement, just what looks and feels good for you, but again, its best if it looks like the butterfly has landed into your hair, instead of having it sitting straight up. Then you can have some come in from the back. Thats something fun and different. These come with little wires, so you can just feed those wires right into the hair. Its much easier than trying to place them in with a bobby pin. You want to definitely find butterflies that have wire.

    Oh! That is so pretty. You dont have to go with as many as we have gone with. You can add more, you can take away, whatever feels comfortable for you. Thank you.
