That big event is coming up. You need your hair to be perfectly curled. However, there is simply no time to make an appointment at the salon for professional styling. You may be surprised to know that you can have salon quality curls, without the time and expense of a trip to the stylist. Here are 3 easy steps that anyone can do to create perfect curls at home.
1 Wash and Prep – A quality style requires your hair to be free of dirt, oils, and any residual chemicals that may conflict with what you are trying to achieve. So wash your hair thoroughly and condition with a light conditioner. The object is to have clean slate for this hair sculpting project. Towel dry the excess water, leaving the hair damp. Now apply a good styling product to the damp hair. A great choice for this is “L’Incroyable Blow-dry” by Kerastase. You will want to Apply one or two pumps to towel dried hair from the ends, working upwards.
2 Dry and Curl – Now that the hair is fully prepped for your perfect curls, go ahead and blow dry the hair. Once your hair is dry use a high quality curling iron of the appropriate barrel size for the curls you want. Hold your iron vertically for looser curls, and horizontally for bouncier, tighter curls.
3 Style and Hold – No that you have sculpted the perfect curls, let’s make sure you keep them! Allow your hair to cool off for a few minutes, this allows the curls to set. Touching, styling, or even running your fingers through your hair too soon, can cause unwanted frizz or droopy curls. Once they are set, take your time and style your hair the way you want it. Finally, apply a good hairspray to hold your curls all day long. One of the best sprays for this is Kerastase’s “Laque Couture” it is flexible, long lasting, and designed to work perfectly with heating tools.
