Question of the Month


Question:

"I want to curl my hair for a holiday party.  What can I do to make sure my curls will hold throughout the evening?"


Answer:

It is all about the foundation.

To have your curls last throughout the evening, here are my curl tips for you.

For best result if possible start with unclean hair rather than a fresh shampoo, one day of unclean hair is fine.

  • Use a light hold hairspray and spray your entire head roots to ends.
  • Using a curling iron or hot rollers make barrel sized sections equal to the curling iron or rollers size for each curl.
  • Let all of the curls cool completely.
  • Remove the rollers or clippers gently and do not undo the curls.
  • For styling, depending on the desired look, use your fingers to loosely break up the curls and place them as desired and then spray them to death with a strong hold hairspray.
  • For a more formal look, lightly loosen each of the curls with a vent brush and then gently backcomb each curl from root to end and finally using a teasing brush lightly brush each curl to it's desired final look and spray the finished look to death with a strong hold hairspray.

If you must shampoo your hair, do a light shampoo and no conditioner.  Towel dry, use a detangler if needed, work at least a quarter size amount of gel from roots to end, comb it through all of your hair and blow dry as if you are going to have your regular daytime style, so use brushes as usual.  Make sure the hair is completely dry and then follow the bullet points above.
