Are you tired of wearing the same hairstyle every day? If so, you might want to consider adding some curls or waves to your hair. Not only will this add some variety to your look, but it's also a great way to add volume and texture to your hair. In this article, we'll take a closer look at some different types of curls and waves and give you some tips on how to achieve each look so you can decide what works for you! One of these could end up being your signature style!
Bouncy Blowout Curls
Bouncy curls are a classic style that has been around for ages. This is a super trendy and popular style right now that gives a vibe of a 90s flare. This can be achieved best with hot roller. They are a classic for a reason – they're easy to use and create long-lasting curls. To use hot rollers, heat them up, wrap sections of hair around each roller, and let them cool completely before removing. Use hairspray to set the curls. Make sure to take the same section hair section size that matches the size of the roller.
Hot Tip: For a looser, more natural look, use larger rollers and leave them in for a shorter amount of time.
Loose waves are a popular style that can be achieved using a curling iron or flat iron. To get this look, start by sectioning your hair into small sections, then wrap each section around the iron, leaving the ends out. Make sure the curls are away from the face. Hold for a few seconds, then release. Once you've finished curling all of your hair, use your fingers or a boar bristle paddle brush to gently separate the curls and create loose waves. Finish with a medium hold hairspray to hold the style in place.
Hot Tip: Make sure to wait for curls to cool COMPLETELY before touching them or brushing them out. This will give them a chance to set and last for days!
Tousled and Messy Curls
If you're looking for a more relaxed and natural-looking curl, try creating tousled and messy curls. This style can be achieved by using a curling wand, which creates a more natural-looking curl than a traditional curling iron. To create tousled and messy curls, wrap small sections of hair around the wand, alternating the direction of each curl. Once you've finished curling all of your hair, use your fingers to separate the curls and create a messy, tousled look.
Hot Tip: When using a curling iron or flat iron for this look, only give it a slight bend or wave to make it super effortless and "messy." The ends should not be curled for this look.
Beachy waves are a relaxed and effortless style that can be achieved using a curling iron or flat iron. To get this look, start by sectioning your hair into small sections, then wrap each section around the iron, leaving the ends out or smooth them down with the iron for a true beach wave. Hold for a few seconds, then release Once you've finished curling all of your hair, use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to gently separate the curls and define waves. Finish with a texture spray to add texture and hold the style in place. My favorite is the IGK Beach Club Volumizing Texture Spray.
Hot Tip: Alternate the directions of the curl for an effortless beach style!
Just remember to use the right tools and products and practice your technique until you get it just right. Happy styling!
