Since last weeks makeup tutorial, I have received tons of messages asking for a hair tutorial! I absolutely love my short hair and have enjoyed trying to find new ways to style it. As many of you know, I had hair down to my lower back for practically my whole life and about 2 years ago I needed a change and decided to completely chop it all off. Turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.
I use Hot Tools Professional 1 1/4-INCH Tapered Curling Iron. I love using a wand because it’s easier for me to handle and I like the shape the curl makes better.
I first start my separating my hair into sections from the bottom to top. I then spray LANZA Thermal Defense spray throughout the section of hair.
I grab a small section of my hair and hold about an inch to 1/2-inch of the ends out to give that “straight end” look….
Now, I always point the curling iron down to the floor and wrap the hair away from my face. This puts the hair in front of the curling iron before wrapping it. I like this method because the curls tend to open up your face more and aren’t doing weird curls that constantly fall into your eyes.
After the whole section is curled, I spray Aussie Headstrong Volume Hairspray over it. Now, personally I don’t like to brush my curls out until my whole head is curled. It gives the curls some time to cool down and really set in their curl.
After spraying, I let down the next section.
Spray with heat protectant spray…
Grab a section of hair, point curling iron to the floor, and wrap backwards.
Spray with hairspray….
And repeat the whole process!
Now once my whole head is curled and has had a chance to set (I always look like Medusa waiting for my curls to cool down), I lightly run my fingers through the curls. I don’t like to brush through it because it takes too much of my curls out. I start from underneath my hair and work my way up.
After shaking out all my curls, I take texturizing spray and spray around/underneath the base of my hair. I have the world’s softest and straightest hair, so to help give my hair some texture and grit I use Unite Texturiza Spray. It is AMAZING!!!!
And here is the finished product!!
