Hey guys it’s Abby from LA, if you can understand my froggy voice this week. I’m fighting a cold. And today, I’m going to teach you guys how to do another CGH, hashtag CGH Spooktorial, because it’s October and we’re nearing Halloween. Today, we are going to be doing this lovely who am I? You guys should know. I just gave you a big clue. You get it? Rosie the Riveter. Now, for those of you guys that don’t know who Rosie the Riveter is, she was a symbol of feminism and economic industry during World War II, when all of the women who normally stayed at home with their babies had to go into the factories and work. And she became the poster woman for all of feminism and women power, which is awesome. So today, we’re going to do this amazing hairstyle.

OK, guys, the first thing you want to do when you’re doing Rosie the Riveter is to divide your hair. Now you can see that I’ve divided this front section, like what people would normally call their bangs, except that I’ve done a really, really deep horseshoe part. And I want it to go pretty far back on my head because we’re going to utilize all of that to get that great curl in the front. And I’ve pulled the rest of my hair up into a high ponytail. And you can even just use, you know, leftover curls or whatever, it doesn’t matter or not because we’re just going to do a messy bun later. Now, the other thing that’s important is your prep. So I’ve already taken some root boost volumizing spray and sprayed it through my roots. And using a blow dryer, I just dried my hair, pulling it forward. And pulling it upward, so that I’m getting that great lift in my roots right from the get go. The next thing you want to do is take that section of hair, and we’re just going to pull off one little piece. And we’re going to take this is a one and a quarter inch barrel, but a one inch would work totally fine too. And we’re going to run it down the hair and just literally do a curl, just your basic curl. You don’t have to hold it in there very long. And it’s going to give us this nice ringlet-y shape. Once you have your curls where you want them, then you’re going to take a boar bristle brush and you’re just very gently going to comb through those curls. And this is just because we want to perform all of those curls that are separate right now into kind of one shape. So that’s the goal we’re going for.
And a boar bristle brush will just help it from being fuzzy. Once we have a shape, then we can leave it like that for a minute. Now we’re going to take a teasing comb, and we’re just going to go back into those sections, and we’re going to tease them. Now, teasing, you’re just going to go up, down. You don’t go up and down, up and down. You just go down. And that just helps tease it at the roots. And then you’re going to let it fall to the opposite direction. Get it out of the way and go to the next section. Same thing, just tease it. Now what I like to do is when it’s still flipped over to the wrong direction, just take the edge of my comb and gently rub the edge like this on the hair. And that’s going to help make it look less teased and lay more smoothly. Smooth? Smoothly? And then you’re going to flip the hair back over to the correct side. And again, just use the edge of the comb to smooth it out a little bit. And make sure you like the volume you have in there. If not, you can go back and tease it just a little bit more. I’m OK with what I’ve got, so we’re good. When you’ve got that all combed softly and nicely, then we’re going to take all of the hair, gather it in. We’re going to go down to where that roll is naturally occurring already from our curls, and we’re going to just begin to form or basically a pin curl. And we’re going to roll it all the way up until we have it positioned where we want it on our head.
And then when you can see, like, OK, I’m happy with that or, no, I want to redo it and get the curl set, then you’re going to take your bobby pins. And the trick to the bobby pinning part is to place the bobby pin just slightly under what you actually want to hold. So if want to hold this piece right here, I’ll just pin it slightly underneath. And that way, in the end, you shouldn’t see the bobby pin too much. And it’s going to require a couple of bobby pins obviously before you get it all set. And maybe one more, just for security. And that looks good to me. And we have our lovely little pin curl. Then you can use a finishing spray to just set that. And this hair spray is going to just make it hold all day long and keep it from moving much at all as you go throughout the day. And, I like-y. And now is when the magic happens in my opinion. So we’re going to get a bandana and we’ve already folded it. And we’re going to get our ponytail out of the way. I’m going to take it and I’m going to try to keep it right at the tops of my ears. And it may fall off for just a second, and that’s OK, and tie it. Now, I’m going to go right behind the pin curl and tie it. But I don’t want it too tight because I want to be able to adjust it a little bit. So tie it down.
And then I’m going to go back and adjust it over my ears and down a little lower on my neck. And one trick I do to this, because it will fall off your ears as you go throughout the day, is to just take a bobby pin or a little clip even and pin it just above the ears. And that just helps it hold in place. You can also do one right here at the nape of your neck. And that’s going to keep your bandana where it should stay. Now when you’re to this point, we need to do something with all of this. And it’s up to you whether you do a fun bun, like a rolled bun, but I like just doing a messy bun. It just makes it nice and easy. So I’m going to take another elastic and create a nice little messy bun shape. And then just play around with it until I like how it’s sitting. And pin it all in place. And this is really just playing with it until you like it. And when you have your messy bun all finished up, you’re done. Guys, let’s do the final spin for Rosie the Riveter. Ta-da. I love this one. I think it’s so fun. I wore it out yesterday because I’ve been practicing my hair, and I really got like a million compliments on it, so I think I’m going to even maybe start wearing some of it just for fun, even though it’s not Halloween, because I love this pin curl. Hope guys have enjoyed this the latest CGH Spooktorial. I’ll make sure and put a link in the description box to where you could find the rest of them in case you’ve missed one. Make sure and leave a comment below letting me know if you enjoy kind of this vintage look that’s so fun, this pin curl-y kind of stuff. And we will see you guys next Sunday. Bye, guys. Be careful on this part because your twist can come out very easily if you don’t hold it right. If this is difficult for you, you can always just rubber band it, and then.
