THE GIRL WITH CURLS

5 tips for flirty curls and wonderlush waves

UPDATE YOUR TOOL BOX

Making sure you have the right tools for the job is very much an individual choice when it comes to curling. Some like to stick to their trusty straighteners. For others the wand is where it’s at. Then there are the die-hard roller girls, who like nothing more than sitting a la French movie at their dressing table all rolled up. If you don’t know where to start, chat to your Stylist about what might suit your hair best.

USE A LIGHT CONDITIONER

We love our deep conditioning treatments, but they can sometimes tend to weigh the hair down a little and make it harder to curl. So now’s the time to stick to a lightweight conditioner and save the more intense hydrating treatments for the next day when you’re keen to repair any heat-caused damage.

SPRAY AND SPRAY SOME MORE

 Now’s not the time to be shy with your spray.  Many make the mistake of piling on the hairspray after styling, but doing nothing beforehand – this leads to crunchy curls that can lack in bounce. When hair is still damp, try the Mark Hill Big Volume Spray and you’ll be free of tackiness whilst obtaining maximum hold. Ensure you give an even coverage and voila – very big, very beautiful… and those curls will actually last this time!

TRY THE JUST-CURLED PIN

Once you release your hair from the straighter/wand/roller, simply pin the curl to your head until it sets. Once your entire head is pinned, mist it with hairspray. Then, carefully unpin your curls and comb through them with your fingers.

PLAIT YOUR HAIR BEFORE BED

If you grew up with long hair we’re betting your Mum did this one. But why should little girls have all the fun?! Plaiting hair at night, especially if slightly damp, can be hugely effective in creating cute and subtle waves. How easy??

Psst… We love…

If you have long, long hair, you will adore this Big Blow Out! Extra Large Brush. It adds bounce to any style, even if you don’t go on to curl afterwards.
