Part Two: The Perfect Loose Curls

September 18, 2015


Happy Friday! In part one of this post, Audrey showed us how to do a quick & easy braid updo. Today she is going to show us how to achieve the perfect loose curls. I myself have never been that great at using a curling iron (I prefer the wand), but after some practice it’s definitely possible. Depending on your length of hair, curls can be the perfect way to transform your look. Loose curls especially are great because they always look effortless.

Starting around the face, use a 1¼- inch curling iron to create waves in two inch sections. Be sure to twirl the hair away from your face. Hold the iron vertically, with the top just above ear level. Clip the completed front sections out of the way and curl the back half of the hair. 


Some great ways to hold the curls in place and add a nice shine is to mist finishing spray or hairspray from 8 to 10 inches away from the hair.


Once all of the waves have cooled, gently comb through them with your fingers.




If you live in Maine or are visiting, you have to check out Escada Hair Studio. I know it may come across as biased, but it really is in my opinion the best salon in the Lewiston/Auburn area. Not only are the hair stylists extraordinarily talented and educated in the newest trends, but the salon itself is so wonderful to be in. The clean, bright look and teal color palette gives the space a modern and upscale feel.


So many colors to choose from!!
