Curls rock! Cascading curls are always in style no matter what the season. To keep your curls bouncy, shiny and naturally beautiful, shampoo your hair as infrequently as possible and deep condition your tresses once per week. Choose hairstyles that work with the natural curl of your hair to achieve quick, sexy hairstyles that get you out and about in no time.
Show off your natural curls with a half updo that will leave your sweetie begging to take it down. Spritz your dry hair with a curl enhancing spray and finger comb it through from root to tip. Gather the front section of your tresses with both hands and push forward for a slight lift. Secure with a sparkling hair clip or claw at the crown of your head. This sexy look is great for hot dates spent dancing the night (and early morning hours) away.
Take your curls from wild to wow with a chic look that’s welcome at any event. Apply leave-in cream conditioner to your dry hair and comb through. Divide your hair into four parts and secure with clips. Wind a 1-inch section of hair around the barrel of a ½-inch curling iron from root to tip. Curl some hair in the section in a forward direction and some backward. Smooth a touch of silicone styling gel on your finished curls from root to tip to smooth and polish them to a luxurious finish.
A tousled updo is a great look for a casual day of shopping, an afternoon lunch date or a yoga session. Don’t bother brushing your mane first, just gather it into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Twist the tail loosely, then wind it around the elastic and pin it in place with small bobby pins. Slide on a thin headband at your hairline for a touch of oomph and a classy finish.
Cascade of Curls
Give your hair a break from heat styling and go all-natural with a cascade of curls. Bathe your freshly washed hair in a smoothing cocktail of leave-in conditioner mixed with anti-frizz styling gel. Comb through with a wide-toothed comb, then air-dry. Apply a touch of gel to any flyaway strands that just don’t want to behave.
