I cut my own hair in soft layers with a tutorial from Youtuber ‘Ellebangs’.

A few months ago I went on a search on the old Youtube for hair inspiration. I found Youtuber ‘Ellebangs’. Her name is actually Silvia and she’s a hair stylist in the US.

Anyone who has been following me for a while knows that I’m on maternity leave with little time to spare for my personal ‘grooming’ :). A trip to the hair stylist seemed like too much.

So one evening I took the scissors in my own hands and found a tutorial from Silvia teaching me in a very simple way to cut my hair in soft long layers. Link to video here. There was a lot of stopping of the tape, rewinding, trying to get that grip on the hair, but at the end, I was perfectly happy with the result.

Another tutorial of hers that I love is the Extreme Blow Out Tutorial. I always wanted to learn how to get that beautiful voluminous look to my hair. In the video, she explains which products she uses and also specifically how to use a round brush. I’ve always been scared of them because they get tangled in my hair. After her explanation, I’m no longer afraid. I blew out my hair today using a root spray from Tigi and a round brush sort of medium size. As with her tutorial, I am very happy with the result! Check out her video here.

I think it’s nice to know a little bit about creating beautiful hair, it kind of goes hand in hand with a beautiful makeup look.

I highly recommend checking her channel out, you’ll learn a lot of great stuff! From hairstyles to colouring to what hairstyles suit your hair. You can check her channel out here.
