Here at Beauty Expert we are all about hair this week!
We have compiled a list of our favourite waves, curls and textures for this season, and in this blog we are going to show you how to get the look.
The Boho Wave
The boho wave is massive this season, across the catwalk and beyond, and it is a really simple and fun style to create.
To achieve this look try using the Diva Session Instant Waver, which has three barrels to achieve a hippy, boho look for daytime. Take a section of hair and clamp the wavers over the section of hair from root to tip. Seal the style with a bit of hairspray or texture spray to give it a bit of oomph!
This style can also be achieved using straighteners or a ghd styler, taking small sections and running the straightener over the hair and twisting as you go down the hair shaft. This will create a more subtle wave.
Big and Bouncy Curls
To create Volume and body, you are best using rollers – changing the size of your roller depending on the length of your hair. We have some great rollers from Sleep in Rollers, to Hot Rollers, the difference is you sleep in one, and put the other on cold hair and let cool.
The Sleep in Rollers couldn’t be more simple, you put them in before bed, into damp or blow dried hair and then you fall asleep and wake up with gorgeous bouncy hair!
If you don’t have all night to wait and you want to add a bit of volume before you go out, I recommend using the Diva Hot Pod with separate rollers. The Diva Hot pod heats up individual rollers that you then roll your hair in, and once cooled create the best bouncy curls and waves to help you look fabulous for a night out.
TOP TIP: To maintain and prolong your curl, prep the hair with a good curl enhancing product like Moroccanoil Curl Control Mousse as this will give the hair that bit of extra structure.
The Hollywood Wave
To Achieve the Hollywood wave you need to use a curling tong, or wand like the Babyliss Conical Wand .
Taking small sections of the hair, and adding a spritz of hair spray before hand, wrap the hair around the wand, watching your fingers (or use the glove provided) as the wand gets very hot. Leave the hair around the wand for 10-15 seconds and release and you will have a gorgeous curl.
To transform curls into the Hollywood wave, make sure you curl all sections of hair the same way, and then once complete, spray again with a light coating of Hairspray and brush through with a soft bristle brush.
This style is massive at the moment, with Reese Witherspoon and Heidi Klum sporting it at this years Oscars! Retro hair with a modern twist and it will go with most outfits.
Hope you have all learnt something from our Hair Curling blog – Enjoy!
