Holtzmann hair take 3 after being at work for five hours (it’s held up really well) plus how I keep doing it because I got asked and just wanted to share
basically I have naturally curly hair and slightly shorter bang type bits in front, so I sorta parted my hair back on both sides starting at above my pupils, and pulled up a lil top section minus some of the longer bits on the back (enough to drape over my head in a Holtzmann-level volume fashion) into a ponytail to keep it out of the way. then, I pulled back the side bits and French braided them down the back of my head, finished the braid, twisted it up in a lil circle and bobbipinned it in place, and started pinning anything hanging around afterwards. I undid the section on top of my head and flopped it over, fluffed it somewhat and underpinned a few longer bits to make it closer to Holtz’s and add more fluff on top.
This time I did it with my hair wet and in a hurry on my way to work, and it took me only maybe 10 minutes at the most. it still turned out pretty well and the more I do it the more I’m figuring out just how to pin everything so it does what I want. ideally I’d like to be able to leave the top completely free like Holtz’s but I haven’t figured out yet how to keep it from falling in my face if I do so without hairspraying it like crazy or something, which I’d rather avoid as I think practically speaking that would make Holtz’s hair more of a fire hazard (and in my headcanon it’s crazy soft lol)
