This is by far my favorite hairstyle, and I’m so glad I finally had time to shoot the tutorial for it! However, I thought it would be best to show photos instead so you can look at the details and instructions more carefully. (Plus, editing a video will just take a longer time)
The Curling Iron:
This is a Conair 1 inch curling iron. I’ve heard of the brand before but I never knew how amazing it is until I actually bought one and tried it for myself! For some reason, the curling iron makes the curls last much, much longer. The two models I’ve done the Soft Waves on were girls with fine and ultra smooth hair, therefore making them hard to curl. They were both surprised that the curls stayed much longer than they had expected, and that meant a lot considering how the hairstyle composed of only waves instead of actual spiral curls.
I purchased this curling iron from my recent trip to Canada. The brand exists in the Philippines, but I haven’t seen their line of curling irons here. However, (due to my obsession for this tool) I’m having a few stocks shipped to the Philippines real soon. If you’re interested, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :) Don’t use the tumblr ask please! I won’t be able to keep track of the conversation there.
1. Separate the top section of your hair using a large clip, clamp or elastic.
2. Begin to curl sections of the bottom layer using the photos as a guide. As you can see, I held the clamp of the curling iron open as I twirled the section of the hair around the barrel. Hold this position for about 10 seconds.
3. Release the curl into your palm and let it cool for a few seconds, before proceeding to another section of hair. This helps increase the staying power of the curl.
4. This is what the bottom section of the hair should look like. Yes, they are supposed to look like ugly snakes. Release the top layer and repeat the whole process.
After the top section has been curled, this is what the hair will look like.
5. Now, for the fun part! Comb your hands through the entire hair to spread out the curls. Be careful to do this gently as you wouldn’t want to tug the curls and waste your effort in curling the hair.
Big and wavy hair :)
NOTE: It is very important that you twirl ALL of the sections in ONE direction. Also, this hairstyle works best with really long and minimal-layered hair. The model’s hair above is extremely long, which is why I chose her for the tutorial :) More photos from this shoot soon!
