So the holiday season is on us. We have a lot of parties and events to attend. We also want to look extra nice right.
Before I begin, sorry folks this is not a really step-by-step tutorial. I would just like to share tools and tips I use to achieve beachy, just got off from bed, schemexily tousled waves. As much as I can, I try to avoid using heat in my hair to avoid it from getting damaged as it is already dry and frizzy, yey to NO HEAT, just good old fashioned curls.
So first off, you have to begin with wet hair and use the right styling product. For me I like using Monea Curl Defining Milk . Just use a peso sized amount and work it up onto wet hair. Use a wide tooth comb to remove the tangles.
Now for the tools to achive beach waves:
Good old granny rollers - I have velcro (yellow ones) for the longer section of my hair, medium sized ones with "teeth" and teeny tiny ones for the smaller bits of hair. No special technique, I just roll away like my momma taught me how. I just roll them from the ends and just ending halfway the length of my hair. No need to roll it up towards the scalp - looks outdated, at least for me, but if that is your thing, roll away lovelies.
Bendy rollers - bought at Watsons. These are bit tricky to use. Basically, you just wind your hair in it and twist to lock in place.
Magic Leverag curlformers - I bought two packs for 100 pesos each at 168 in Diviland. It yields nice bouncy curls, but once "gravity" takes over and as the day goes on, the curls would then turn into big schmexy waves. You can find tons of tutorials all over Youtube on how to use this.
This technique I found at Pinterest is by far the easiest way to achieve pretty curls. No special tools necessary.
- Start off with wet hair, apply your hair product like mousse and hair lotions then curl, leave to air dry.
- The longer you leave the curlers in, the tighter the curls will be.
- Gently remove the curlers so as not to "destroy" the waves.
- It is important not to brush or comb your hair. You can piece out/separate your curls, finger comb or flip it.
- To make the curls last longer, you can use hairspray.
The result, gorgeous, bouncy, schmexy beachy waves!
I hope this helps! Care to share how you curl your hair? May be we can swap tips and ideas. Have fun with your curls and stay gorgeous Divas!!!
