How to style a Baby Morrissey

*You need Hair Spray and bobby pins. I use up to four bobby pins. More than that looks a little cluttered. And a lot of hair spray. It needs to be the kind that does not get flaky or white bits when you comb through it.

Grab a small section at the front of your hair (I include a little bit more than my bangs) and hold it STRAIGHT UP. Spray it from the front AND the back, and then hold it upright until the hair spray dries. Then let it fall.

Reach up and sort of "stir" your hair, like you are washing it.


Now spray the hot mess that made.

We are getting close!~ Reach back with one hand and gather the hair and place the first pin in. Keep pinning until it feels secure.

But like I said, more than four will look sort of cluttered...

I use up to 4 pins

Spray it again. YES, again.

Spray it. Again.

TA-DA!~ You're done.

Someday, in another life, I will have different hair that I can try this with! For now I'll just stay jealous and admire how adorable that style is on you. <3

I'm glad you posted this. I know I watched you do it in person but I couldn't remember how you did it. :)

PS--That "TA DA" pose at the end is so cute I could DIE.

I sorta do this something but I don't spray or mess it up. I just pull back my section of hair, slightly poof it and pin. I do this when my bangs are not cooperating which is becoming more and more frequent. I'll have to take a pic.
