To help give you some hair inspiration for the holidays, for the next few weeks I will be posting holiday hair ideas every Sunday night!
I remember being little and hating the foam curlers that my mom put in my hair. It was always a big, giant poof ball and they would bother me when she made me go to sleep in them. I got to thinking this weekend, hey, remember those curlers I HATED as a kid?! I wonder what they'd do for my hair now!
I don't know why I gave them a second chance, but I found myself at the store buying a big fat bag of foam curlers. I did it differently this time, to avoid the frizzy poof that is often a result of these things, and I'm actually obsessed with them now. Especially because you can throw the curlers in your hair, get other stuff done, and have pretty hair in a few hours.
Make sure you read through the directions so you can see the tricks I use so it turns out well.
1. Use the big curlers for the hair around your face. I like having large, soft curlers to frame my jaw line, so using the large size curlers do that. I roll the front curls different that I roll the rest of my hair.
2. Place the curler at the bottom of your hair, and roll UP, not under. Use this rolling technique for all of the hair that frames your face.
3. After you've done your large curls, take the second smallest size (usually yellow color) and curl UNDER the next layer of your hair. This will give dimension and add tighter curls. I also put about three of them on the top layer in my hair.Make sure that you leave some of your top layer of hair unrolled. Next, grab the second largest (green color) and roll UNDER the bottom section of your hair. Then, take the smallest roller (blue color) and roll UNDER the remaining sections of your top layer of hair.
4. The tightness of your curls will depend on the length you leave it in. For these waves, I left mine in for about 3 hours. For a loose curl, I would leave them in for no longer than 5 hours. Release those babies and you're ready to party!
