Curls Are In

This season curls are all the rage! Tight or loose, flat or full it doesn't matter. As you can see from the hair styles above from fashion week in Australia, Kevin Murphy the hair genius from "down under" created ultra sexy wavy and curly hair styles.
Curls are super easy to achieve with all the tools on the market. There is everything from curling irons, curling tongs, sponge rollers, hot rollers, velcro rollers and so on and so on. My favorite right now is the simple and cheap hot tools curling iron 1". I use the curling iron as a curling tong (don't clamp the hair in the curling iron but rather just rap the hair around the barrel). This will give you a softer more organic look. It is very important not to over condition your hair with leave-in products as this will just weigh down your hair and the curls will fall flat. I like to use holding products such as volumizers or mousse, as this will allow the curls to stay for hours but still have movement. It is also important to let the curls cool before you play around with them. Finish the style with a finishing spray or hair spray and don't be afraid to have some fun with the style.

  1. Lori, is that how you achieved the curls in the black and white photo, by just wrapping the hair around the barrel of the curling iron and not clamping?
