With Deborah the goal was to use one of her hairpieces in a manner other that it was intended for, and to use a crimping iron for her front-parted hair. The latter two-thirds of the photos in this slideshow were taken by Dawn Neuhart.
|Deborah has layered hair and no bangs; it is a little shorter, thicker and straighter than Gailynne’s.||The first step after the addition of hairspray is to make a center part.||The front hair is separated from the back with a part that runs from the end of the center part down to the ear.|
|The front hair is divided with a part about half way up. The sections are clipped to keep them separate and out of the way.||The last two steps are repeated on the left.||The back hair was divided in half across the head and the top section pulled into a ponytail. The lower front sections are re-sprayed, pulled back, wrapped around the base of the ponytail and pinned there.|
|The lower half of the top front sections are crimped with an iron, first close to the head and then farther out, each time matching the peaks and valleys.||This is pulled back softly and pinned near the ponytail.||The same steps are repeated on the top layer.|
|The top layer is then pulled back and pinned.||The same steps are repeated on the left side.||Deborah after the crimped hair was pinned back.|
|Deborah used a regular curling iron to curl sections of her ponytail so that they could be pinned in front of the hairpiece to make horizontal curls.||The hairpiece gets pinned into place right up against the second row of horizontal curls, where they will be pinned to fill in the space.||
The last curl gets rolled up and pinned, and a comb is added for decoration on each side of her head.
Now it is off the mirror so Deborah can use a curling iron to curl the bottom section of her hair in finger curls.
I pinned the synthetic curls out of the way.
