Creating Curls!

Go from straight to curly in a snap!
Summer calls for wavy, girly hair! This is a style i have been doing for years: pin curls! To do:

1.) Wash hair, shampoo and condition normally

2.) Brush out wet hair and apply one pump of frizz fighting serum, (i like Paul mitchell's skinny serum) then apply a quarter size blob of curl cream like CURLS ROCK Be sure that the cream has a bit of a sticky consistency which will help keep the curls together.

NOTE: to apply these products correctly pump into the palm of your hand and then smooth over the entire hand surface. When you apply it to the hair itself, use only your fingers going from end to root...there will be product on the palms of your hands which you can smooth over the rest of your hands when needed, so you are applying the product to the hair in small amounts to coat the hair, but never over-saturate (we want to avoid sticky and product heavy hair)

3)Take small 1 inch section of hair and smooth out with a fine comb

4) Twirl around your finger from end to root and secure with a bobby pin or small claw clip

5) Repeat until all the hair is clipped up to the scalp. Let it air dry as long as possible (3 hours will be gorgeous! But whatever time you have is ok)

6)If the hair is still damp when you need to take it down, Blow dry the hair while still in clips carefully, without mussing hair

7) Take out curls and separate each curl once time with fingers

8) VOILA!!

9)Pull pieces back and clip back for a casual, earthy look!
