I take for granted that everyone knows how to do a doobie, but that’s because I was probably doing my own before I could tie my shoes.
Anyway, there are few different ways to do a doobie, including the Cuban, which is when you section off a square of hair at the crown and roll the hair on a roller. This gives the hair a lot of lift; this doobie is good for those of you who are looking to give thinner hair a little volume.
If you have a lot of hair, like I do, then a regular doobie is in order.
Just like doing a roller set, it’s about practice. So, let’s get started.
2. Since my part is from crown to back, I comb the left half of my hair forward, smoothing as I go.
3. I place the first bobby-pin in the back, at the nape, then place one at the crown.
Notice that it just keeps on moving around the head. You put pins around the hairline and in the crown. If you have enough length, you can have larger gaps between pins. If you have a shorter cut, then you may need to use more pins, to ensure that your hair is not slipping down before you get the entire head wrapped.
When you get all the way around to your first pin, if you still have hair that needs to be wrapped, just pull the pins out, brush/comb the hair around a little and replace the pin. Do this as necessary, until all of your hair is completely up and secure.
