I was almost convinced that the only people watching my hairstyle videos were my family and friends (who were basically being forced/bribed to do it). Plus the people who were given no choice in the matter thanks to Facebook auto-play. But when I started getting requests from you guys to do specific hairstyles, I realised I was wrong.

Like I said, this is embarrassingly easy. Anyone possessing a few pins, some basic motor skills and, hair (I’m going to set a record today for stating the obvious), can do it.

Here’s how:

Please make me happy and let me know how it turns out if you try it!

Until next time.
