When it comes to hair, we all want what we don’t have.
But, naturally wavy or curly hair really does have so much going for it… The best root volume, endless body (okay, maybe too much at times), but best of all, the ability to change your looks – from big hair to smooth hair – simply by switching styling products.
However, ask anyone who has curls, and invariably they focus on the downside: unmanageable and unpredictable frizz that prevents a head of curls from looking groomed and elegant.
The answer really is just clever curl grooming.
Here are our top tips to keep your summer curls in shape:
Use a wide tooth comb to ensure the hairs are separate before styling, then either dry naturally or blow-dry.
Once dry, perfect your natural waves by curling them with a tong or wand. Wind the hair away from the face to open the face.
Add rollers to allow the curls to set smooth. Or pin curls in place and leave for 15 minutes – this will help the curl keep its shape for longer.
Scrunch or twist a little styling cream evenly through your hair to lock in moisture and prevent flyaways.
