I went back to brown and had quiet some hair chopped off by COIFFURE WINTER in Basel. for all of you that have not watched my youtube video that I made right after I had my hair colored and cut watch it here >>
thank you Stefanie Winter for making this fancy up-do – I felt like a princess – the whole day! I tried to shoot a step by step guide but I didnt end up with a smooth series of steps so I decided not to post them. BUT Stefanie also took some photos and I will see if I can use hers to make something nice, we will see.
so let me ramble a bit about hair. do you wear your hair up or down, a pony tail or a bun? there are so many different ways to wear your hair up and I am often very inspired by watching youtube tutorials. I was more than happy to have such a PRO at work because working on the back of ones head is not easy to manage especially when it shouldnt look like a messy bun. 🙂 I usually wear my hair down and if not I have an either sleek or messy bun. so this was a firsty for me. although I used to wear my hair clipped up in the 90s but in a very very different way and I would not feel comfortable to wear this look ever again.. I dunno if my old friend Julie is reading my blog – she would know exactly what I am talking about 🙂 wearing my hair up in such a professional way was a really nice experience and it totally made me wear my favorite dress – too bad it was minus temperatures that very day so I couldnt show you my full outfit – all you can see is my gorgeous hair and my lovely super old ZARA coat.
what do you need?
loads of bobby pins
a flat iron
straighten your hair with the flat iron
use the flat iron to make curls (tutorial here «)
section your hair in two parts – front and back
split the back part in two even sections
clip one part to the opposite side and secure with bobby pins
use the other part and roll it in to cover the other side secure with bobby pins from top and bottom and try to have a nice smooth surface. use hairspray!
take the front part and separate the bangs
split the front part into smaller sections and roll them back, secure with bobby pins and use hairspray to cover any flying hairs. thats it!
I am again sorry that I can not show you a step by step tutorial but I am already working on my next hair tutorial and there I will really have a step by step guide. stay tuned. xx
I wanna share with you my awesome hair dresser Stefanie Winter from Winter Coiffure in Basel. she mainly uses products of the company Rolland from Italy, they are super skin- and hair- friendly and use natural ingredients that are rich in active ingredients and free of chemical components. the formulas are rich in natural and biodynamic ingredients and all products are as far as possible free from irritants and potentially dangerous components. the product packaging is only made of sustainable recyclable materials, most packages are bottles and containers of highly biodegradable plastic or glass. that is something I highly appreciate. another thing that I like is that Stefanie pays attention to what is out on the market and like this you can always find something nice in her salon. for instance months before the invisibobble was sold in H&M and Claires (and where else..) she had them – the same with the brush tangle teezer. in the last photo you can see Stefanie Winter in action and this is also a tiny sneak peek as this photo was taken during the photoshooting preparations.
I change my natural brown hair to a redish copper brown and ever since I did that I get so many compliments and people ask me whether this is my natural hair color 🙂
in November last year I had the honor to be part of a photoshooting with Claudia Link photography and I can not wait to share our results with you. stay tuned.
