In a sea of loose, sexy waves, why not buck the trend and opt for a tighter curl, like Hailee Steinfeld at the recent Pitch Perfect 3 premiere?
Although going for a more full-on curl rather than your normal beachy waves may seem intimidating, the hair experts at Schwarzkopf assured us there’s nothing to be scared of.
“Get the hair and be firmer with the tongs than if you were just creating a wave,” the hair pros said. “Hold the tong in place and wait. Then take section by section, one on top of the other, and brush it through so they all sit on top of each other and it has a nice wave.
“And if you’re being fancy, you can do the finger wave by flattening hair down with flat clips.”
Curls work especially well for brides too, though for a wedding look it’s best to revert back to looser, more undone curls.
“I love undone curls for a bride,” our expert beamed. “And even if I do an up do, I always curl all the hair then put it up, because when you see through the roots, the hair you can see an underneath has texture.”
Whether you’ve opted for a sparkly wedding gown, or top to toe satin elegance, waves can work with any dress style.
“Loose curls are perfect for brides. When you have something too ‘done’, you won’t look yourself for your big day. A simple, not too done hairstyle works best with a beautiful dress,” the Schwarzkopf style master said.
“Brides can be uncomfortable with overly complicated hairstyles, but with waves, you can put your fingers through your hair and shake your head around and see the beauty of the natural hair.
“And the doll look isn’t in any more.”
