A trendy, always in fashion hairstyle for women and men is the flouncy, bouncy, wavy curl! With various types of curls, you can step out for any event looking chic and sophisticated, or as youthful and playful as a happy, go lucky school girl!

Whether your natural hair type is straight, wavy, kinky, or curly, you will look stunning and fabulous when you doll yourself up with hair that is swirly, curly and oh, so girly!

Various hair instruments that can give you the lavish, lustrous, luxurious curls that you crave are hot irons, curling irons, heat curls, foam curlers and pin curls. Let’s take a look at some great types of curls that will get you both office and runway ready.

The Classic Curl: This type of curl is by far the easiest to do. Wrap sections of your hair around a hot iron and hold in place for 20 to 30 seconds. Release the curl and do not brush. This makes for a swirly, spiral curl.

The Natural Curl: This curl resembles a soft wave more than tight curls. You can achieve this look with a curling iron that has a thick barrel (1 – 2 inches) or large foam curlers. The larger the curler, the more wavy and relaxed the curl will be.

The Tight Curl: Work with very small sections of your hair, and use a curling iron with a thin barrel. Wrap each section of hair tightly around the hot iron and hold for 20 to 30 seconds. The less hair you use in each section, the tighter the curls will be. Release each section of hair from the curling iron and don’t brush! Wow, a tight curl hair rush!

The Loose Wave: The best way to achieve this glamorous, feminine head of wavy hair is to sleep overnight on large form rollers, or use large heat rollers. A loose wave brings bounce and body to your hair, yet doesn’t resemble the look of tight curls. A great look for any girl!

The Twist Curl: Take small sections of hair and twist each section, then wrap the twisted section of hair tightly around a hot curling iron. Hold for 20 t 30 seconds and release. The curls should give off a tight, twisted look. Don’t brush!

Who is that beautiful gal with the head of hair so curly and strong that you’ll want to stare at her all day long?

Hair Fun Fact: Did you know that hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in your skin’s dermis? Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals!

Make no bones about it, we all love and adore our hair, whether our preference is long or short, thick or thin, and even bald!

Give me a head with hair…ah, what a lovely fashion flair!
