FAKE CURLS! HOW TO GET HAIR THAT LOOKS NATURALLY CURLY


Do you wish you had curly hair? Here’s a tutorial to show you how to style your hair so that it looks naturally curly.

But don’t you already have curly hair?

Yes, I know this seems like a strange tutorial for me to do as I already have wavy/curly hair BUT the grass is always greener, so if you’re wondering what you’d look like with curly hair, I hope this might help you.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to get some comments from people with naturally curly hair that this is a terrible idea and why am I doing this tutorial but this is for everyone out there who really want to

Or if you’re like me, and want to style your curly hair perfectly so that it looks “natural” then you can follow the same steps.

You see this tutorial was really me getting ready for a night out at the Australian Hair Fashion Awards (AHFAs) and I wanted to avoid washing out any of my pink hair colour.

STYLING TOOLS

For this tutorial you really do need specific hair styling tools.

I’ve two different curling wands though you could do it with just one wand. The curling wands I used are:

  • Muk Curl Stick with the 9-19mm barrel
  • H2D X3 Curling wand – 19mm barrel

Most standard curling wands are around 20-30mm so the smaller the wand, the tighter your curls will be. Also note that your hair will drop and soften over time so it’s best to style your hair a little tighter than you want so it looks good all night.

HAIR PRODUCTS

If you have straight hair you’ll definitely need to prep your hair to make sure that your curls last the distance. I recommend using a volumising mousse to add some grip and texture to your hair and then just to roughly blowdry your hair before you begin. This helps to activate the mousse into your hair and add a little bit more texture so that the curls will last. I recommend:

  • Extra Care Keratin Styling Mousse
  • Living Proof Thickening Mousse

HEAT PROTECTANTS

As always when using high heat tools, I recommend using a heat protectant spray. If you’re starting with wet hair and using a mousse, check if that is also a heat protectant or I recommend:

  • Batiste Heat & Shine spray
  • Joico Thermal Spray 

FINISHING PRODUCTS

For extra volume I love hair powders and this time I used the Marc Anthony Dream Big Volume Volumizing Super Powder.

To smooth down the surface frizz, I love O&M Frizzy Logic which you can find here in Australia and here in the USA.
