Try a Trend...Curl Power
My other gorgeous sister modelling this season's curl
Poker straight locks have undoubtedly been the style of the decade. In fact, in a recent Superdrug survey, straighteners were named the best beauty buy of the last 10 years. Certainly for most of my teens, I could not have been surgically-removed from my Babyliss Straight & Shine Steam Straighteners. But perhaps this season's curl trend could be just the thing to loosen that (straightening) iron grip...
Step 1. Lank hair loaded with product will not curl easily. Wash hair with a cleansing, lightweight formula, like Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner, £3.99 500ml (Boots).
Step 2. I applied Tresemme Naturals Weightless Volumising Mousse, £5.39 (Boots) to Andrea's damp hair, then rough-dried. (FYI, the mousse was great. None of that awful crispiness, just fab bounce and hold.)
Step 3. I then curled 2 inch sections of hair, using a large barreled tong. We used the Philips Salon Curl, but any 25mm+ tong will work.
Step 4. Flip upside down and spritz with a light-hold hairspray. For long-lasting, brush-out hold, you can't beat L'oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray, from £2.19 (nationwide).
What do you think ladies? Would you try a curl? Or rather curl up and die? Sx
