-Curls that look natural.
-Curls that look beautiful.
-Curls that look like beach waves.
-Curls that are quick to style.
-Curls that last.
These are the top things I have been hearing from women over the past 14 years of being a hair stylist. I thought it would be fun to show you a quick video with some tips and tricks for you to achieve the look at home. My #1 goal is to always educate and help my guests, so that when they get home, they can rock their favorite look.
Curls are always a hit for many reasons!
- they will last a few days when they are done right
- creates movement and volume in your hair
- looks professional and feminine at the same time
- showcases a great color and cut
A couple tips:
- Use a good curling iron. My favorite brands are Hot Tools, GHD and BaByliss.
- The size matters.
- if your hair is above your shoulders use 3/4 – 1″ curling iron
- if your hair is shoulder length to clavicle bone area use 1 1/4 ” curling iron
- if your hair is longer than your clavicle bone- mid back use 1 1/2″ curling iron
- For more fine hair / blonde hair, don’t overheat it. stay under 350 degrees.
- For more coarse / thick hair, go to the higher heat setting.
Products work. PROTECT YOUR LOCKS.
- Always use a product in your hair when it is wet.
- If you air dry, think something soft. Detanglers or a lotion for the hair to air dry.
- If you are blow drying it out, use a blow out spray (actually can speed the blow dry time up) or a heat protectant to smooth/de-frizz/condition the hair.
- When you are curling the hair, use a product as a shield. I like using a flexible hold hair spray, or shine spray. Look for products that have a humidity shield or protectant. I like to comb in the product with a wide tooth comb or wet brush.
- Clip the hair in half, putting the top section of your hair up in a clip.
- Start with the section by the temples/ears. Take 1 – 2″ sections.
- Comb the section if necessary.
- Curl away for the face under behind ears. Once to back of hair, curl towards face.
- When curling the hair, hold the curling iron 90 degrees.
- Clip the hair in the curling iron closest to the scalp and work down the strand, leaving the tips out.
- I like to let the hair cool before combing through the hair to rough it up.
- Finish with backcombing the roots. I love using a root lifter on the scalp for added volume! I finish with hairspray.
- Use a dry shampoo on the roots on the days you don’t wash to prolong your look!
