Anonymous asked: How do you get such perfect curls?
Well I have naturally curly hair so I usually dont do anything BUT if you straight/wavy hair and want curls, here’s how its done.
IF YOU HAVE A CURLER: Take a small piece of hair (2-3 cm) and run a slim (or large for thicker hair) barrel curler all the way down until you get to the longer piece. Clamp and twirl wand up to the root. Leave until the hair gets hot and then release. Repeat all over and remember that curls do fall out if you have heavy hair so i recommend curling it a bit tighter than normal and using hairspray.
IF YOU DONT HAVE A CURLER: wash hair and then towel dry until damp. Plait or braid hair in either two parts or a french braid down the center of head. Leave to dry or use hair dryer. Take out plaits and run your fingers through the curls gently, tipping your head upside down and putting hairspray through it evenly. If your hair doesnt look quite curly enough and more of crimped look, then spray with a little water and wrap up in a bun or two small buns and let dry. A hairdryer would be handy at this stage.
IF YOU ONLY HAVE A STRAIGHTENER: Take a 2-3 cm piece of hair and start at the root. Clamp straightener GENTLY over hair and start to twirl it down the hair strands so the it wraps around the straightener gradually and bit by bit, ensuring no part stays in the straightener too long.
If you’re curls look too sleek in any of these looks, mess up with your fingers and use a salt spray (1 cup water, 1 tsp sea salt) throughout the hair to give it a beachy look. Turn hair upside down and scrunch messily.
Of course, if you have the money, a good curling product always helps too. My go to is Sunsilk Curls: extra bounce and hold, curl booster and no frizz balm.
