We start with hair care, pin curls, and creating simple styles without much fuss then we transition into hot sets and brush outs and pinning. It’s a journey and you will definitely take away some new skills to start practicing with. The make up is simple yet striking geared towards a vintage aesthetic to suit the hairstyles and outfits.
