beauty tutorial: how to curl with a flat iron

a few weeks ago, jen and i collaborated on a cute hair tutorial video! jen came up with the idea to document her hair styling process – she curls it with a flat iron, and i’m always all “jen your hair looks awesome!”, so i personally, was very interested to see exactly how to curl with a flat iron!

i tried it myself, and i just can’t get the process down – i’m terrible doing my own hair… we didn’t film that part, sorry (this means i’ll be referring to the vid myself on the reg). that aside, it takes a lot of work to produce a quality tutorial!

first, a cohesive storyline is created. we considered what was important to communicate, and how to make the lesson as appealing as possible. of course, for us this meant pastries, flowers and red lippy! whenever i see the finished version of a creative tutorial, i always forget how much time and patience it takes to create. multiple shots, and angles are required to get the piece to fit together, not to mention props, and a pretty space. it was such a fun and creative process to be a part of! we shot it at my place, and ava had to make a cameo.
