If you’re my Instagram or Facebook page follower you’ll definitely remember this wrap-around half do which I shared a few months ago. I know I know, I promised you a hair tutorial on this hair-do. It took me this long to finally do it because of two reason. (1) This auntie have totally forgotten about it as usual lol and (2) I haven’t figure out how to take photo of my head from the back.
I’ve been toying around with some styling products from Kérastase Couture Styling range and recreating this wrap-around half do. Let me tell ya’ recreating this hair-do is not easy at all but here is the tutorial as promised 😀
The first time I tried doing this wrap-around half do is in the office. That time I’m equipped with just a comb, a few hair tie, a few bobby pin, a can of hair spray and I nailed it on first try. Not only recreating the same hair-do is difficult, I also face with the shooting challenge as well. My bigger camera is once again sent to the service centre so I have no choice but to use a smaller camera. Some photos may be a bit blurry as I can’t see the camera screen at all. I think you get what I mean 🙂
(1) I always like to start with combing my hair sleek and straight as I prefer my hair-do to be smooth. If you have wavy or curly hair and you prefer that messy-look, there’s no need to comb it straight. If I want to do this hair style after hair wash, I’ll apply Kérastase Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow-Dry Gel and blow dry my hair using a flat comb just to get that silky, straight look. Half way through blow dry, I’ll apply Kérastase Lift Vertige Root-Uplifting Gel on the hair roots for that higher hair effect and continue blow drying. Next, grab about 1/4 of your top hair like the picture above. The amount depends on your usual liking and preference. I have very thin hair so that’s all I can spare lol.
(2) Grab and separate a small portion strand of hairs on either left of the right side. In my case it’s the left side. Secure it with a hair tie just to temporary separating them away. On the larger portion of the hair, comb and tie it with a hair band. Try to get it on the center.
(3) Untie the smaller portion of hair that was separated earlier, give it a nice comb through and wrap it around the larger portion of hair. Align the hair properly so that it covers the hair tie.
(4) Grab the larger portion of hair tied earlier, creating a gap underneath it and tuck the smaller portion of hair underneath the hair tie. Secure with bobby pin. I usually use two bobby pins. Make sure the pins are hidden nicely.
This is the end result. Well, obviously I took too much hair to wrap around haha! But as long as it forms a style so why not 😉 We’re not done yet.
This next step is for straight hair like mine. Give your hair a good comb on top of your head to smooth everything out. I have a lot of baby hair so I usually like to use Kérastase Laque Couture Micro Mist Fixing Lacquer, which is a medium hold hair spray, to keep all the baby hair at place.
Wavy or curly hair can use Kérastase Spray á Porter Tousled Effect Spray or Mousse Bouffante Luxurious Volumising Mousse to maintain the curl and volume 😀

I like that Kérastase Couture Styling product comes in three different types of hold – Flexible, Medium and Strong. I choose what to use depending on what type of hair style and what type of look I want because different hold will give a different look. I’m not going to elaborate much on the product as I’ve already mentioned above on how I use these products to style my hair but if you want to know more about any particular product, just leave me a comment 😀
