Research on hair styling inspired by Funayama Kumiko

PS. Those pasta are still in the same old place since the start of this research until now

The best way to achieve this hairdo, I think girls with medium length hair will work best.  (FYI. medium length hair is the length just settles on the shoulder or at the edgy corner of the shoulder blade).  I think my hair now is entitled to be long.

Another factor I encounter would be having the horizontally paralleled bangs/frindge... but to make it all perfect, probably works best with hair that's dyed to a lighter hazel or dark blonde tone like the Japanese girls.

Equipment wise- Although using a curl roller is rather time consuming, I do give them thumbs up for good sectioning to your hair

Criticisms & Thumbs Down:
The reason I don't do alot of hair tutorials is because that's the major field that I am not talented in doing.  I have to also remind you all that this hair styling is slightly time consuming, due to the fact I don't have a reasonable size mirror in my room (You can see from my room tour video), it took me longer than the average length of time to complete the hair styling, I'd say around an hour it took me =( I am happy to accept ANY CONSTRUCTIVE criticism with good elaboration that I can learn from.

Thumbs up For:
The best apology I made to subscribers and viewers why it took me so long and that I prove to people, yes I admit I always hit uncertainties ANY TIME and ANYWHERE too! However "uncertainties make me learn".  It's not a perfect video and not everyone will enjoy this video, BUT I believe I have done my best and hopefully provided the best possible answers to anyone who asked.  Thanks for this gorgeous lady who requested this video, because I must admit that Funayama Kumiko is also my favourite model from Popteen as well!  I used to have curly hair at one point, so I believe this hair-do won't look bad on me at all!

PS. This photo was back in 2008... I looked HOT then... But now, fat and crap =.=

Update: 16th August 2010-21st August 2010 (outcome)

Update: 12th August 2010
Make of this video.... let me share a secret with you all... my bf was having an afternoon nap, and I forgot to mute my camera.... all his snoring went to the background, but don't worry, of course I will mute it again after when I edit the whole thing...

Update: 11th August 2010

So far, I have gathered the available hair curling products I have, such as the regular curling tongs I use

I think using a regular curling tong means that the curls would come out as a vertically parallel spiralled shape.

To describe the shape of these curls, I would use pasta to be the nearest example

(Bought from Tesco, but not yet opened...)

I think the effect of using the smallest tong along with the spikes on top is the best curl it brings out nearest to Kumiko's curls....

First update: 8th August 2010
This is actually a requested video by a youtube user through inbox on 21st June 2010 and I do apologize for the long time she had to wait before I get her prayers answered, however, due to the promise that I will try my best, I have to look at even more pictures to take a real close look at the hair-do, the several things I would consider about the hair do would be the directions of curls the model made it into as well as imagining the available equipment to make this hair do.

From my observation of Funayama Kumiko's hairdo, her hair curls are fluffy and feathered that the hair style looks like the perms that can be done in a hair salon instead of using ironing tongs for those regular princess curls.

Cute video Ronnie! My hair is so straight so I love to curl my hair =) I personally use a hair straightener though as I find it so much easier and quicker to use! Or when I'm in a rush I use Babyliss hot rollers for really bouncy curls.

re: Michelle
Do you use the wide n flat straightener or do u use those thin rod ones? I have tried to handle the curls with the thin rod straightener over the weekend n it seems that it doesnt clip to my hair tight enough tho

re: Nur
My hair has bad issues with my styling when I NEED to look good! argh! u wont find that I look any better if I need to look decent, u might find that I tend to look better on my bad hair days, lol... i think um, that day was the day that it was seriously the worst hair day i ever had in my life that I felt mad enough to bash the adaptors in pieces XD
