Curly Hair Routine

I have had a ton of people ask me about how I curl my hair. Sounds crazy right? Seems like curing hair is such a no brainer but surprisingly it’s not! There’s so many different curls you can achieve based on which technique you use to curl your hair. I decided to go ahead and make a post for those who have been asking and for others and a future reference!

You will notice that I don’t wrap my hair around the curling iron like you would with a wand. So keep that in mind because that will give you a different look.

Nathan and I were headed off to a concert and while I was getting ready I knew I needed to take advantage of me doing my hair for the first time in weeks! I worked a wedding the previous night so I had my hair straight for that. I really prefer to curl my hair when it’s straight because I have naturally wavy hair and don’t like the look of the waves showing near my head if I don’t straighten it before curling it! So my curls were done on second day hair which is usually better to help hold the curls.

I have pictures of the process and you can go ahead and scroll through the photos and explain how it’s done!

I am using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron.

Don’t worry though because they wont be staying like this. I will usually do my makeup and let the curls sit for a bit. dsc_0120



dsc_0133For the concert I did the same makeup look that I have already done a post about! Just switched up a few colors in the Tartelette palette to achieve a slightly darker look! I am also using my Kylie Jenner lip kit here. dsc_0148After I have finished up my makeup I take my dry shampoo and spray it all over the root of my hair. This helps achieve a little volume and gets rid of some oily strands you may have if you’re curling your hair on second day hair! I just absolutely love this Batiste dry shampoo I have been using for so long now. No other dry shampoo compares!

If you skip the step of dry shampoo that’s totally fine! Now what I do is take a wide tooth comb and comb out my curls! This gives it the relaxed look I am always going for.

Once you have done that go ahead and spray in your hairspray so your hair stays nice and locked in for the day! Luckily I never have to use hairspray because the texture of my hair just holds everything so nicely and will hold for days!

If you have any questions about anything feel free to leave a comment below! I had such a fun time putting this post together and I hope this helped explain the way I achieve my curls! I haven’t changed up this look at all since about a year ago.

Go ahead and also leave a comment if you have any post ideas in mind for me to do!
