How to create curls


Nathalie Jenson, Senior Stylist at Jarvis hair salon, gives her top 10 tips for creating curls, on MiNDFOOD.

1 Wash your hair.

2 Apply a volumising spray at the roots, such as Redken Wool Shake 08.

3 Blow dry your hair until it is 100 per cent dry.

4 Clip the top and middle section of your hair, so that only the bottom of the hair is left exposed.

5 Starting at the front of your head and working your way around the back, take a two-inch section of hair and using VIA curling tongs, hold the tong at the root of the hair and wrap the hair around it leaving two-inches spare at the ends (so the ends aren’t curled).

6 Hold the curling tong in place for a few seconds until the hair has set, then let them loose.

7 Continue this all the way around the bottom section, then do the same to the mid-section and lastly the top section.

8 Once all the hair has been curled, using a soft brush, gently brush the curls from mid-length to the ends. This will help create a beautiful, natural curl rather than tight ringlets. Never brush from the root as this will kill the curl.

9 If you need more volume at the roots, gently back comb the crown.

10 Finally, lean over to one side so that the hair falls and from underneath, spray the hair with Davines Defining Invisible Hairspray to help keep the bounce.
