I always go with a straight style by blow drying with a round brush and using a CHI flat iron to straighten and smooth. I use Shang High Volumizing Mousse on damp hair before the dryer and then use Sashini Thermal Shine Solution before I use the flat iron. I like the look, but get bored with the same style everyday. In trying to improve my personal style I decided to try a curly look this weekend.
I still used my Shang High Mousse and a blow dryer, but left out the round brush and did a quick dry with my head up-side-down. Then I used my CHI flat iron to curl small sections. To do a curl with the iron, you take a small section of hair and then twist the iron under like you would a curling iron and pull to the ends to make a flippy curl. I used CIBU Pho Finish Finishing Spray (like a light hairspray) on each section after I curled it. The curl fell into a really nice wave after I was finished. I am pleased with the look and am feeling pretty snazzy. With a few more practices, I’ll have it down. My next challenge will be some sort of going out up do, but I’ll need some major practice time before that goes up on the blog.
