It took me years to accept one thing regarding my hair….I am a BRUNETTE and am best suited as one.
TODAY: Kate’s infamous Curls without the Blowout
What you will need:
1. 1″ or 1.5″ Barrel Curling Iron
2. Boars Hair Brush
3. Alligator Clip or Hair Tie
Duration: 10 minutes
STEP 3: Grab the hair you just brushed and place it in the curling iron (as close to your head as possible) . Make sure the lever is loose, drag the barrel down to the tips of your hair (NOTE: this is to get any straggler hairs in place and shiny before you curl your hair). Curl UPWARDS or DOWNWARDS, only curl the hair halfway. Hold the Iron for 15-20 seconds. Since we don’t want to look like Shirley Temple, we need to make sure your hair isn’t over curled (Do a couple test curls just in case your hair curls faster or slower).
STEP 6: Now for teasing. I hate teasing.PERIOD. but with my hair, it’s necessary. I lightly tease my hair with my Boar’s hair brush, halfway up my crown until it looks full. I personally think this looks less ‘teasy’ and more ‘classy’.
