Tutorial: Loose Curls/Waves

Sunday, December 19, 2010

 Hey everyone! Sorry it has been so long since posting. I've been running around trying to get ready for Christmas. But anyways..this hairstyle is really cute for the holidays. It is one of my favorite looks. Its curls, but almost waves since they are loose. I used the Hot Tools 2 inch curling iron, with the clamp removed. If you do not have long hair, I strongly recommend using a smaller barrel curling iron like a 1 1/2.


-I started off my blow drying my hair
-Spray CHI 44 Iron Guard
-Section it off in layers starting from the bottom
-I straightened about 2 inches of my hair with a straightening iron at the roots since it is so curly, but you can skip it.
-Then, taking a 1 inch section, hold the curling iron pointing to the floor
-Wrap the hair around the barrel as far as you can without burning your fingers
-Hold for a little longer than you normally would, since your not using the clamp (the longer you hold it, the tighter the curl)
-*Switch the direction you are curling it with each section. This keeps the curls from grouping together in one big curl. That is pretty too, but I was going for more volume and tousled curls.
-Gently run your fingers through your hair and spray with hairspray. I love the Aussie Aussome Volume Hairspray, it is so good at adding volume.

Thats it! Its a lot easier than it looks.
