Wahl 9mm Mini Curling Tongs
With the 70's being big news on the AW2011 Catwalk, I'm seeing loads of this texture in recent editorials.
GET THE LOOK:
Although this style will work best on longer lengths of hair, you can achieve the same texture with the right products and tools!
prep damp hair with mousse for texture and hold
blast dry with hairdryer
starting at the bottom and work your way up, a couple of sectioning clips will make the job a lot easier! Take super fine sections (around 1cm square works best in this case) & curl with mini curling tongs such as Wahl 9mm tongs- the smaller the better!
before curling, spray each section with hairspray
allow each section to cool
Continue on, working up the head in a brick work sectioning pattern
once the whole head is curled, brush out with fingers to break up the curl and create the frizzier texture
The longer your hair is, the heavier it is. Which means the curl will 'drop' over time. Shorter lengths may need a little more 'brushing out' so that the curl doesn't spring up too much.
Finish with a light hair spray (don't use a strong lacquer) to set your look in place.
