CURLING HAIR WITH PENS!

Hi lovely!

Today, I have a fun hair tutorial to share with you. I will be showing you how to curl your hair using a tool that you use daily- pens! Give this a go if you have some time to spare and if you have patience. Patience is the key! This is perfect for summer as it's doesn't require any heat. I despise using hot hair tools during summer. No, thank-you. No heat equals no damage. *Big tick of approval*.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Please note: You can try experimenting with markers instead of pens for looser curls. Preferably, if you have butterfly clips to use those but I improvised and used pegs. They did the trick too!
 
I started with freshly washed hair. If you are doing this on a second hair day, you can dampen your hair with the spray water bottle. You want your hair to be about 40% wet. 
Separate your hair into two sections.This will help make the curling process easier.
Working on the bottom section. Separate your hair into two sections again. Now using a pen, wrap your hair around it like you would on a curling iron. Then, hold the hair in place with a clip. Secure the pen on your head with bobby pins. Repeat the same process till all of your hair is curled.
Okay, don't be alarmed. You will look like a hot mess for a couple of hours. Hopefully, the postman doesn't turn up on your door step during this time...might get a little awkies. Good conversation started though, no? 
Time to play the waiting game. Give it about an hour, then feel if your hair is still wet. 
TICK-TOK TICK-TOK TICK-TOK

Once you hair has dried completely, carefully unravel the curls from the pens.
Voila!! A set of curls from using pens! 
To retain those curls throughout the day, use some hair spray and tease the roots for volume.
Like I mentioned before, you can experience with using a combination of markers and pens. I hope you enjoy this heat-less hair tutorial!

  14. Definitely going to try this! I usually try to get some waves by braiding my hair when it's damp and sleeping on it. But it sometimes turns a bit wonky haha

  17. I've heard of this technique before, and have been reluctant to try it as I have very thick hair and if it didn't work then I would have waited for about two hours to be very disappointed! However the curls it gave you are gorgeous so I am tempted to give it a go!

    1. I can imagine you'd need a lot of pens but perhaps the socks technique would work better for you. :)
