Summer is here and we have something to say to our curly haired friends. This season, its all about letting loose and embracing your natural hair texture! Let’s stop fighting it and start flaunting it! With the right products and curling tricks you’ll be tucking away those flat irons and rocking your curls in no time!
Speaking of our curly haired friends, we spent a day with the lovely Vanessa Hudgens and got an exclusive look at her new lioness locks! Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri added curly extensions to match her natural curl and it’s giving us major hair goals! This is the perfect free spirit summer look for her and we couldn’t be more obsessed! We’ve got some tips and tricks to help you achieve this look.
When styling your curly hair, what you do when it’s wet is the most crucial part. Start off with a leave in conditioner such as 7seconds from Unite. Brush hair throughly. There’s no correct given dosage for how much product curly hair needs. Experiment until you you get it right. Sometimes “more, is more” and that’s exactly what it needs. Start off with MarulaOil from the mid shaft to the ends of your hair, follow up with Brocato Full Body Gel Mousse and apply from roots to ends. Be sure to not neglect your hairline. Lightly scrunch with the palm of your hands. Let your curls naturally air dry and occasionally gently scrunch. Once completely dry to polish it off, grab a 3/4″ to 1″ iron and curl a few pieces by your hairline and top to finish the look. Spray a little Evo Shebang-A-Bang to add a little more hold and volume to your look and then you’re good to go!
Here is another look that we tried on Vanessa:
*Quick tip: for an easy half up look try tying your hair in two knots, just as you would your shoes. Add a bobby pin or two to secure it and voila, you’re ready to go!
*Quick tip: Make a statement this summer and add an amazing hair piece by @purplebeetle! Perfect for any festival or party!
And for our straight haired friends, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Give your locks a wavy or curly modern day perm with the technology of Olaplex! While the thought of a perm might sound way too 80’s, we promise you, it’s not! Just ask Julianne Hough, who just got the perfect #901wave!
It’s officially summer time, so stop fighting against your natural hair texture and start enhancing it!
