TOP TIP #1 – PREP THE HAIR BEFORE STYLING
If you want long lasting curls it’s essential that your hair is thoroughly prepared first with the best professional hair care products. It’s important that every inch of the hair is covered when applying your styling products so make sure you spritz well! You want the hair to feel almost gritty with products to ensure your curls stay locked in place.
I personally love ghd curl hold spray and always apply this to prep the hair before styling. If I want extra hold, I use ghd root lift spray to achieve a gorgeous voluminous curly look.
TOP TIP #2 – USE HEATED APPLIANCES TO CREATE THE PERFECT CURL
Tongs, straighteners and styling wands are all great tools to use to achieve everything from sexy, effortless waves, to big bouncy curls.
I switch between using straighteners, a styling wand or tongs depending on the look I want to achieve. I love showing my clients how to get the best results when using their heated styling appliances at home, so please feel free to ask me for a demonstration if you need a little help.
TOP TIP #3 – BRUSH YOUR CURLS
Using a brush on curls can make a huge difference to the final look. A soft bristled brush will give a shiny, smooth finish and look effortlessly glam. You can also use your fingers to gently break up the curls and give a more textured, relaxed and modern wavy hairstyle.
TOP TIP #4 – USE CURLS TO HIDE FRUSTRATING HAIR GROWTH PATTERNS
Waves and curls work well no matter what your hair type, length or texture. They are also a great way for to style your hair if you are growing a short hair cut. Curls can hide a multitude of sins including hair growths and those frustrating sticky out bits!
TOP TIP #5 – USE PROFFESIONAL HAIRSTYLING PRODUCTS
Moroccan oil helps to lightly loosen and separate curls, plus it adds an incredible shine to the hair. Use it to tame your waves the morning after – it’s also a great product to help fight the frizz.
