Curling Tips

Carrie Marie has been doing my hair since I was a little girl. In fact, it wasn't until I was in graduate school that I went to someone else due to me no longer living in the same state.

Carrie Marie not only is able to style and cut hair, which is a talent within itself, but she also creates elegant beautifully stylish up-dos for special occasions.

I have been extremely impressed with her work. I have been specifically amazed that my up-dos look just as full of life at the end of a night, after dancing and inevitably sweating, as it did when she first created it. Now that's nice! No more matted sweaty hair pictures :)

Carrie Marie's kind and upbeat attitude makes working with her always a pleasure. I now live in Oregon and wait to have my hair done until I visit the East Coast so that Carrie Marie can do it if that tells you anything. I would recommend her to anyone!

Curling Tips

I curl my hair once or twice a week for a fun, different, pretty look, rather than just wear my hair straight or pulled back. I find it much easier to section my hair when curling.

First I start off with moussed, dry, brushed hair, then leave the bottom two inches of hair down and clip the rest up on top of my head.

Then, I mist hair spray on the hair that is down and part it in the middle and pull the two halves over each shoulder.

Depending on how tight I want the curls will depend on how large or small of chunks that I curl... the tighter the curl, the smaller the chunk of hair.

Once both halves of that bottom section are fully curled, I take down another couple inches of hair, clip the rest up, mist that hair with hair spray, then split in the middle & curl in chunks, as I did with the lower section.


I repeat that same process a couple more times until all of my hair is curled. I then tousle the curls around and break some up a bit with my fingers, and spray another mist of hairspray to give it extra holding power! :)
