HOW-TO: CURLS FOR EVERY HAIR LENGTH

HOW-TO: CURLS FOR EVERY HAIR LENGTH

Freshen up your little black dress with glamorous date-night hair.

Hairstyles are rarely one-size-fits-all, but no matter your hair length, you can rock curls—you just need to figure out the style that works for you. In this tutorial, we use two new tools—the ghd Rose Gold Styler and the T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing, Auto-Rotating 1.25” Curling Iron—to create two perfect date-night looks. Whether you go tousled and textured or try on loose, romantic waves, your little black dress won’t know what hit it. BECKY PEDERSON

FOR SHORT HAIR: Flirty Flips

STEP ONE: Lightly mist your hair with Living Proof Restore Instant Protection Spray. Use your hands to work the product into all your locks.

STEP TWO: Starting at the crown and working your way forward, place one-inch sections of hair between the plates of the ghd Rose Gold Styler. Rotate the styler 180 degrees and pull through to the ends of your hair to create a soft curl.

STEP THREE: Repeat Step Two until all your hair is curled. Alternate the direction in which you rotate the styler (either away from your face or toward your face) so that the curls look less uniform and more modern.

STEP FOUR: Once all your hair is curled, rake your hands through your hair to loosen into textured waves. Set with Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray.

FOR LONG HAIR: Romantic Waves

STEP ONE: Section your hair into four parts. Starting at the temple, clamp a one-inch section of hair into the T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing, Auto-Rotating 1.25” Curling Iron.

STEP TWO: Holding the iron horizontally, press and hold the “GO” button and slowly turn your wrist down to activate the rotating barrel. The styler will turn whichever way you flick your wrist.

STEP THREE: Release the “GO” button when you reach your roots and press the lever to release your hair. Gently loosen the curl and pin it to your head.

STEP FOUR: Repeat Step Two and Step Three until your entire head is curled and pinned. Let your hair cool (this is a good time to go do your makeup).

STEP FIVE: Use a paddle brush to gently brush out your curls. Set your look with Bumble and bumble Spray de Mode.
