Hair-Do How-to #2: Le Grand Bouffant

With out further adieu, the hair post I've been procrastinating on is here! For this style you'll need: a teasing comb or brush, hairspray or surf spray, and bobby pins. Your hair can be washed or dirty, mine was freshly washed for this. Have fun!
My hair posts will now be once a month, so if you have questions on how to do a style or ideas for a future post, be sure to email me! The first how-to post can be read Here.
Have a great weekend!

You are so lucky to have fantastic long hair!! I often do this hair-do but i can do the curls bc my hair is to short. I Love how you rock it!

Athenista said...

too cute!

my hair is in that mid-length stage of growing out so i wonder if this would work to help with the weird/hard-to-style phase. gonna have to try it out! thanks for the how-to!

Elisabeth Carol said...

Love this post! Look forward to future awesome hair posts!

futurelint said...

Gaa! Curse my short curly hair!

Capricioustraveler said...

This is great. So pretty, I wish i looked good with long hair!

Sabrina said...

Thanks for this, I just wish my hair was longer so I could do this to my hair.

Love this hair on you!

Christen said...

Oh my god, this is totally amazing! I cannot WAIT to try it out!!! Thank you :)

Melrose said...

good call on the overnight high bun, my poofs always fall, but hopefully this well help the roots a bit next time! Thanks!

btw, totally awesome shower curtain!

Rosie said...

Awesome tutorial! One question though, does it hurt to comb out all of that teasing? I have wicked thick hair like yours and want to give this a try.

Gizelle said...

i have to say, my favorite step is chillin' with the cat...that is so funny! :D i have a dog though..so i guess i'll chill with him...hehe.

i'd love to try out the tutorial but i can't tease my hair for the life of me..i'm too scare i won't be able to comb it back. got traumatized as a kid..:D

Julia said...

Awesome, now I can make my hair huge! I can't wait!

You look fab, by the way, and that scarf in the last two pictures is beeeeatiful.

Meg said...

LOVE this tutorial! You make it seem so simple... really wish my hair looked as good as yours does!

Kennedy said...

you are awesome for posting this! i have just now tried and ive almost got it but in the process i have created a seriously monsterous rats nest of tangles from all the teasing. am i doing something wrong? any tips to avoid or lessen this?

Mascara or Motoroil said...

You're making me miss my long hair! As much as I love mine, I really miss being able to do a bunch of different stuff with it.

Kelly Lauren said...

I love the poof, and teasing. It can be dangerous though. Much love!

Chelsea said...

oh this is just faaaaabulous... love your bouffant!

i'm starring this post in my google reader so I can be sure to come back to it and try it sometime! muchas gracias!

CĂ©line said...

I Love your How-to but I love more your shower curtain. it that a new method to learn french ? Because I want the same to learn as well English !!

elle s'ennuie said...

Great tutorial, you make it seem fairly simple and manageable, I'll be sure to try this when it's warm enough to go out without a hat:)
P.S. I totally covet your hair!

closet365 said...

Thanks for this!

I totally do not have long enough hair at the moment but I'm inspired to try teasing mine more. Your hair always looks fantastic.

Amanda said...

What a great tutorial! Maybe I'll have to go try this today!

Alix said...

nice tutorial. since my hair is somewhat short I'll just sit around with a cat and skip the other steps

hellojellogoodbyepudding said...

I'm definately going to save this and try it sometime. My hair is probably too short to be able to do it right now, but maybe when I grow it longer I will have to try it. I really like your hair.

briannelee said...

You make it look so simple but I have a feeling I will screw it up somehow ;)

ANA said...

Great tutorial!! I suspect it's not quite as easy as you make it seem thought! I'm glad you're doing these once a month, can't wait to see the next one :o)

xo, Alexi said...

huh. how cool! i not only love the tutorial, but i love that your sense of humor comes out in it. i'd follow your easy, alexi-proof steps except i'm way too lazy with my hair. maybe one day, when i've got some extra time (which is never...) haha. i look forward to the monthyl tutorials though!

Mich said...

Hey! I tried this tutorial this morning and I must say, for someone who doesn't really "do" their hair ever this was actually pretty easy!! I think you've inspired me to work on my hair a bit more! Can't wait for the next!

You can sorta see it some of the pics on my blog!

Lexie said...

Julie, I have never had such hair envy in my life!!! :)
Your hair is so gorgeous! It is taking painfully long to grow mine out!

I love this style! I'll definitely have to try this style out the next time I straighten my hair (it's currently curly).

amanda said...

Heather said...

So I tried this the other weekend & basically every girl at work told me how amazing my hair looked ... most told me multiple times. Later when I went out the bartender asked me if I was wearing a bumpit which I thought was a hilarious win so thank you so much for posting this =)

BuenoBueno said...

Marisa said...

Great tutorial! Might try this for a formal dance I've got coming up on Friday. Keep up the hair tutorials - I know I can't be the only person who loves them.

Chandler said...

Maria said...

wow, I love this hairdo and I love the way you've presented the tutorial too<3 and also the cat time! haha! my cat would love 'special cat time'.
I'll definitely try this but I worry that my hair is so heavy and longer than yours, the bobby pins won't hold it up :( Which is sad because despite my hair being long and heavy, it looks thin on the top which I hate (I think it's the colour, it's all one colour and quite blonde)

ghadaevoradesign said...

Gorgeous!!!!!!! What is the kind of coloring in your hair called? It looks amazing
