Ah, yes! The bald mannequin head photo for this week. I've lost my spray bottle of rubbing alcohol and even my hairspray recently and I haven't found them yet... But THIS style is something I'm sure many of you do, but I am definetly not a fan of. I shall explain why.
With using the no heat styling, you have to wait for the whisker to dry (they start damp) around curlers. Only then can you hairspray and tweak things, but it takes a good amount of time to get the whiskers to dry naturally. I suppose blasting with a fan or a hair dryer on cool may speed things up, but I much prefer my heated curlers as the result only takes around an hour or so while this could take all night.
For those of you not comfortable with applying heat to your yak sets (either heated curls, hair dryers, or curling irons - which I never use) this is a much safer way to get into styling your sets. Never fear the yellow hue when all you use is water and hairspray! As this technique was new to me, I experimented before filming this episode and shared my thoughts both about what went well, what I could have done better, and what I would advise anyone else to do who would want to undertake this type of styling.
It really helps provide a very natural look, even more so than the previous post on what I have dubbed the "Relaxed Style" which mimics what Kurt Russell had in The Christmas Chronicles. With wavy whiskers and a comfortable look, this style is one for the books if you like a traditional - yet realistic - take on how Santa's whiskers should look.
