Twirl For A Curl

My shorter hair style is still growing on me (SORRY, it had to be done!), so I decided to emulate the people who originally inspired my shorter length, Gwyneth & Olivia look fab with their hair curled, so sweet & stylish. Usually, my hair is deadeningly, numbingly boring, iron-straight, so the curls give it a little bounce. I'm still practising the technique, but so far have it down as follows:

1. Don't use freshly washed hair. Spritz with water so it's a little damp.
2. Take large sections of hair at the front & curl with a tong, leaving in place for a few minutes.
3. Once each section is curled, pin them up on the crown of your head, blast with a cold hairdryer, & leave whilst you're getting the rest of yourself ready.
4. Just before leaving the house, unpin, loosely separate the curls with your fingers, & spray a lotta hairspray to keep the style in place.
