Hair is hot in all of its forms. Whether worn long or short, curly or straight, permed or flattened, or even bald, people have an undying love affair with their hair (or lack thereof)!
Think the bed head. Even a head of hair that is somewhat unkempt (I said unkempt, not unclean), looking a bit shaggy and being worn in such a way as to be described as a “hot mess” looks hot!
Strike a pose by striking hair that makes a statement! All hair speaks, and loudly!
For this particular blog post, I am going to showcase long hair worn with soft, loose, curls. There are so many variances of hairdos and hairstyles that work well, and I will highlight other hairstyles in future fashion posts. Also, if you prefer to view other types of hairstyles, I have written other hair topics in prior posts.
For those of you who want to give the loose curl a whirl, this one is for you!
No matter the color of hair, flowing, wavy hair is dynamic! From black to brown to red to blonde to dyes of pinks, blues and greens, when your hair cascades with soft layered curls you will truly make a stylish scene!
With soft, draping curls, the hair style sizzles whether the hair is parted down the middle of your head, parted on the side of your head, or blow dried or teased to where the hair rises on the top of your head, and there is no visible part at all! (I find this hairstyle super attractive, especially when worn with a headband or some fancy hair accessory)!
Four Easy Ways to Put Loose Curls in Your Hair:
- Using a thick curling iron
- Using heat curlers
- Braiding your hair using wide sections of hair, braided loosely
- Using foam curlers
These curling methods are fairly self-explanatory, but I will list step-by-step instructions for applying soft, loose curls to your hair using foam curlers (foam curlers are extremely safe for your hair as they don’t burn or tend to pull out or break the hair strands). Foam curlers tend to work best when you put them in before going to sleep at night, and then remove them in the morning.
Creating Soft, Loose Curls Using Foam Curlers:
- Shampoo and condition your hair
- Blow dry the hair so that the hair dries some, yet is still damp
- Use thick width foam curlers for loose curls (smaller, tightly wound foam curlers will producer tighter, thinner curls or ringlets)
- Using sections of hair (one section uses one foam curler), wrap your hair around the foam curler (starting at the base of the hair section) and continue to roll the curler toward your scalp as you continue to wrap the selected strand of hair
- Clamp the built in curler holder together to keep the curler in place
- Continue to apply as many curlers as you prefer
- If your hair is layered, it works best if you roll the shorter hair first, or the sections of hair that will be nearest to your scalp
- Once the curlers are in place, you may want to wrap your hair in a scarf, or simply let the curlers dangle loosely while you snooze and slumber
- In the morning, unsnap the curlers and remove them from your hair, unwiding the hair from the curler
- Wahlah! Long, gorgeous, bouncy, beautiful soft curls
- Brush lightly using a soft bristled hairbrush (the harder you brush the curls, you will eventually brush the curl out)
- Spray a light hairspray and/or hair gloss or hair shine, if preferred
Curler Tip: Heat curlers can give you the same amount of curl and can be placed in dry hair, however, the curls from heat curlers don’t last as long as curls from foam curlers. This same rule applies when using a curling iron. As far as braiding the hair with long, lustrous curls in mind as the end result, this method works much like foam curlers. Braid damp hair (preferably before going to sleep – using wide stranded braids for loose curls) and when you remove the braids, your hair will be wavy. If the braid strands are small and braided tightly, the hair will have a crimped look.
Who said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Curlers are mighty great companions themselves!
A real plus for flowing, soft curls is that the hairstyle works for both tenth degree glamour, as well as when you are going for a more casual, down to earth look.
For those of you who normally don’t curl your hair, once in a while the change creates a fun, unique, sensational look. I love sleek, straight hair, but a bouncing, full, stream of soft curls turns any head into a head of sheer beauty!
Feminine, fly and fine!
Looking oh, so girly with flowing hair that is curly!
Curly Hair Fun Fact: Manes that consist of cascading curls many times look like you are wearing a crown! Hair that is hard to miss!
Curly Hair Tips: If your hair tends to be dry or brittle, you may want to give your tender tresses a deep conditioning or spray your hair with a styling spray before you apply the curls. Also, remember, the wider and larger the curler, the softer and looser the curl will be.
Wrap, roll and curl your hair to sheer elegance and ultra-perfection!
Are you agonizing over what to wear? May I suggest a full, puffy head of chic curled hair!
From hair to there, people will truly stop and stare!
Curled hair is sexy, sensational, superb and simple to create! Tousled, top notch tresses!
So create a new you with a hip, sensual, totally new “do”!
You wear those curls well, girls!
As exquisite as being draped in the finest of pearls when you greet the day with a head full of curls!
Loose, lustrous, luxurious locks absolutely rock!
Now if only those curls could talk! Oh wait, they do! They say “Your hair can look as hot as me, too!” Those words ring oh, so true!
