Hair Tutorial: Easy Curls


Hello again! Welcome to another hair tutorial! Today, we conquer CURLING your hair. I use a different technique than most girls- only because I cannot figure out the "wrap" technique. So, I've made this one work for me. You can watch the video here or just view it below [there is definitely a cat cameo in the video]:


One thing to note is that this is the technique I use EVERY time I curl my hair. The only difference is if I want bigger, looser waves- I use a larger iron [1.5 inch] and much larger sections of hair. If I want "going out" hair, I use a smaller curling iron [1 inch] and smaller sections of hair. It is easy and can be as quick [or time consuming] as you make it! 

The product I used in this video is the Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid. It is a little more expensive, but lasts forever [years... and years]. If I ever use hairspray, I prefer the Bumble & Bumble thickening spray

If you have any questions, please let me know!!

  1. Thank you so much for these! I forgot to tell you that the other night I had a naked lady party and for some reason the topic of conversation turned to sock buns (typical I know!). Half of the girls didn't believe it would work or just didn't understand it so I ended up doing a sock bun demo and then a room of about 15 girls applauded and proceeded to do sock buns on each other. It may have been the girliest moment of my life and it was totally awesome.
