A question I get asked all the time is “how do you curl your hair like that”? I wear my hair loosely curled more often than any other way, mostly because it has a bit of a natural wave to it so throwing a few curls in it is easier and much quicker for me to do personally than straightening it with a flat iron!
I have pretty long, very thick hair so I focus on only curling the top pieces all the way around as well as a few extra curls in the front. This of course takes significantly less time than curling it all and gets me out of the door quickly! It really does give off the same overall look as if I had curled it all and I’ll save time any way I can!
I always use this 1” curling iron when curling my hair. It is super affordable and has worked well for me over the last 2 years. I grabbed it in a pinch after my much more expensive curling iron stopped working and figured I’d only use it a bit while researching which curling iron to get next but I’ve been very happy with the results it’s given me so decided to stick with it! The 1” barrel works well with my long hair, you may want to find a thinner barrel if you have much shorter hair but it all depends on your preference.
I curl the pieces near my face away from my face. Other than that I switch directions of the curl to give it a more casual, tousled look. I start a few inches down from my part and leave an inch or two at the bottom uncurled as well for a more natural look. I only hold each curl a few seconds before opening the barrel and letting it fall out. I then let all of the curls cool down completely and then run my fingers through my hair a few times making sure to break up each curl. You will want to be sure to wait until they are cool, otherwise they will lose too much shape and volume if they are tousled too much prior to cooling. After that, I spray lightly with this hairspray an arms length away from my hair, run my fingers through it again, and go!
It’s super simple and I’m usually able to rewear it a day or two with little to no touch ups since my hair holds curl well. Sometimes I will throw it up in a curly pony tail, low side bun/ponytail or put a hat on if it’s not looking it’s best and those little changes make the curls still look cute!
Here are a few of my favorite hats; linked below! I have gotten so many compliments on each of these. I used to never wear hats and now I can’t imagine not wearing them one or two days a week to accessorize or simply make getting ready in the morning with day 2 or 3 post curled hair that much easier!
