Before. Helps to have slightly dirty hair, even works great with super oily hair simply give it a quick spray of dry shampoo for volume.
Start by separating the hair you wish to use in the roll. Any amount will do, the more hair, the bigger the roll, the more dramatic the effect! Today I’ve split the hair just above my ear, but I’ve done it further back, using hair from near my crown. Make the section a large triangle or square, ending it an inch or two about the ear (the hair below can be swept back with the rest of your hair into a high ponytail, bun or twist). Spend some time pretending to be Cousin Itt.
Next get some mousse, spread through hair and brush forwards so it all sits flat.

Begin the rolling process. Bundle hair and make a loop, pushing ends underneath and continue the roll up towards the head. If you can’t get the ends to sit under, make a loop halfway up the hair and roll the stray ends in as you go.

Not brilliant, but fine for a demonstration.

Hope this was helpful! Please tell me, is there anything you’d like me to write about more (or less)? Is there anything you long to see a tutorial on or perhaps a review? I’m all ears (or to be more precise, I’m all eyes reading and brain aiming to accommodate your woes and whims).
Until next time, here is Judy Garland showing you how these bangs can be worn!
