Soft Spring Curls

April 2nd, 2014 • Posted by Dazzles • Permalink

It's no secret that sexy spring and summer hair is all about beautiful curls. You've probably even seen your favorite movie stars sporting gorgeous, cascading spirals on the red carpet. Have you ever wondered how they get those big, beautiful curls without them falling flat or looking crunchy? It's simple -- the right products plus the proper technique equals professional results. With this combination, you can achieve red carpet worthy curls. 

First off, the preferred styling tool for this look is a 1-inch curling wand with a conical barrel, which starts with a wide base and becomes narrower at the tip. If you don't have a curling wand or a wand like this, you can use a regular curling iron or whatever wand you have, although the curls will look slightly different. The conical wand gives your curls a more natural effect, because it creates beautiful loose waves at the root of the hair with tight curls at the tips. Follow the directions below to get started.

  1. Apply a heat protectant to damp hair to protect your locks against the hazards of heat styling and sun damage.

  2. Use a comb to create a deep side part, which pairs perfectly with romantic curls and adds a touch of vintage glamour. Then divide your hair into four sections, from front to back and ear to ear.

  3. Beginning with the lower back section, grab a 1-inch section of hair and position the barrel at the root, wrapping your 1-inch section of hair around the barrel from base to tip. Hold for about 5 seconds, before releasing the curl into the palm of your hand to cool for a few seconds.

  4. Repeat step 3 on the remaining sections of your hair, until you've curled your all your hair.

  5. Gently shake curls out and rake your fingers through your hair to soften the style up for a softer, more natural look.

  6. Set style and lock in your perfect curls with a flexible hold hair spray.  

Now that you've created your beautiful curls, there's no need to pile on the makeup. You're beautiful just the way you are. Simply, complete the look with a fresh face and a dash of coral lipstick to let your natural beauty effortlessly shine through. The best thing about flaunting your natural beauty is that it's in style all year long and compliments every hairstyle, so shine bright like the diamond you are.
