I love loose, undone curls everyday~ but especially during holiday parties and events.
Whether you have short, medium, or long hair, this technique will work. The shorter your hair, the less twirls each curl will have. I do this on Niamh's super short hair, and it looks really funky and cute.
I start by pulling out a small section of hair.
I spray my section with spray wax (just to help the curl hold).
In the photo above, it is my second day, product-filled hair-- but, it still worked.
(I love second day, product filled hair. It is like second day spaghetti. Something about it is just better.)
Then follow the 3 easy steps below for each section you pull out to curl.
I usually end up with 20-25 pinned curls.
After they are all curled and pinned, I use my hair dryer on hot to lock in the curls.
I usually 'blow-dry' for only 5-10 minutes and then leave them in to cool.
Then I take out all the bobby pins, flip my head over, and comb through the roots of the curls with my fingers (just a little).
They last for (fingers crossed) two days.
Once the curls start to look ratty, it is ponytail day.
I can usually squeeze out a good ponytail day towards the end:).
Hope this helps some of you achieve lasting curls for your special holiday get togethers!
