Hairstylist Matthew Collins shows us how to create sexy curls for your next night on the town.
Tin Foil Twirl
Who said you need a styling iron to create curls? Start once your hair is dry.
- Scrunch up some tin foil, wrap your hair around it and tie to secure.
- Once all of your hair has been twisted into the foil, hit it with some heat from a blow dryer. 5 minutes will do the trick. The tin foil will heat up and act as hot rollers.
- This method works well to create volume in fine hair and is easy for all lengths of hair!
Let your own hair be the tool.
- Start with dry hair and section your hair into four quadrants (more if you have a lot of hair).
- Twist each section into itself and secure each twist with an elastic.
- Once all of your hair is been twisted, hit it with some heat from a blow dryer. 5-10 minutes will do the trick.
- Release your hair to reveal beautiful loose curls!
An easy way to fancy up dry hair before your big date night; this is a vintage look inspired by Veronica Lake.
- Start with a deep side part for the most impact.
- Curl the front of your hair by wrapping the iron away from your face. The hair next to this front second should be wrapped toward your face. You want to get your hair as hot as possible, without burning it for this look.
- Once you're done curling, spray some hairspray to set the curls. Let your hair cool.
- Once your hair is cool and the curl is set, take a fine tooth comb and brush out your hair. You will see the curls joining together to form a uniform wave.
- Set the final wave with a final dusting of hairspray.
Glam Wave Updo
If you want to take your vintage inspired wave to the next level just put it into a ponytail and secure the front wave and you're good to go!
