Holiday Hair–How to Do a Modern Curl

We’ve got two holiday parties on Saturday. Isn’t that the way it is? Nothing for eleven and a half months then BAM! two on the same night so that you can’t really do either one properly. Oh well, it’ll be fun getting dressed up.

And if you want to do something fun with your hair for the holiday try a “modern” curl. Why is it modern? Well as opposed to the Shirley Temple or Diana Ross look these curls lay flatter at the crown of your head and are more of a natural-looking cascade of waves.
Modern CurlMy own hair is long and straight with a tiny bit of a wave to it (I’m the one on the far right in case that’s not obvious). Not really enough to get me anywhere, just enough to cause problems when I want it straight but when I’m dressing up this is how I curl my hair and I get a lot of people asking me if it’s naturally curly. When they find out it’s not they then want instructions so I plopped Grace down in the chair, turned on the video and curled her hair up for you to see how it’s done. She’s a good sport, that one.

It’s best with long hair but you can still give some fun waves to shorter hair as well, all you need a small-barreled curling iron, about 1-inch in diameter, and a clip to keep your hair clipped up and out of the way. Other than that all you need is a bit of practice–you might burn yourself once or twice at the beginning but it gets much easier the second time you try.

And if you look closely you’ll see me put in a plug for my Suave freeze spray that I now use regularly–talk about your product placement!
