the HAIR

It took me years to accept one thing regarding my hair….I am a BRUNETTE and am best suited as one.

the HairThanks to Kate, I have been given even more motivation to maintain my locks and make sure they are always looking healthy and bouncy ;)

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

4. Hairspray

Duration: 10 minutes


Step 1STEP 1: Make sure your hair is completely dry (this can be done on unwashed hair as well)

Step 2STEP 2: Section off your hair with your alligator clip or hair tie.  Take a small portion of your hair and brush it out with your boars hair brush.

Step 3

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 4STEP 4: Curl the rest of your hair.

Step 5STEP 5: Take your Boar’s hair brush and brush through the curls so that they soften a little bit more.

Step 6STEP 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’.


Enjoy Ladies!
