The thing with romantic curls is that they’re loose and care-free, while still adding lots of body and style to your hair. Romantic curls are different from tight corkscrew curls and they are not even the same as waves.
7 tips on creating romantic curls
Using the 7 tips on creating romantic curls we are certain you’ll be ready for your next date night or let us get you ready and pamper yourself.
1. Curl in sections
It’s best to divide your hair into 3 sections: ear to ear, temple to temple, and top of the head. You will pin up the top 2 sections and start curling the “ear to ear” section first. After that section is complete, you will move on to your “temple to temple” section, and finish with the top of your head. This will give your curls more definition and texture, and will make curling much easier, especially if you have layers.
2. Watch the size of your irons
Though it’s better probably better to do romantic curls with a flat iron, you can also achieve great curls with a curling iron or waving device. (Of course, that’s what they’re for, right?) However, if you’re going to use a curling iron for romantic curls, make sure it’s a bigger barrel like a 1 1/2 ” or so. Remember, romantic curls are loose and feminine, and the bigger the barrel, the looser the curls.
3. Mousse after wash essential
Your hair will have better hold (without having crunchy curls) if you use a good quality professional mousse after washing and before drying, something like the Wella Eimi Styling range mousses perfect for the job. After it’s dry, brush through and then proceed with curling. This gives your hair a bit more hold without dealing with a lot of hard hair.
4. Please use a heat protector – your hair will thank you.
One of the key ingredients to romantic curls is soft, well maintained hair. As great as it is to use heated tools on our hair, it’s also very important to use a protection spray on our hair to protect it from the damage of heat – especially the ends. Volona have a range of heat protection sprays to assist in this vital step.
5. Take your time – do not rush
Beauty comes with a price, and the price for romantic curls is a little of your time. As you near the top of your head, you’re going to start getting tired and ready to be done, but don’t sacrifice a lovely hairstyle for a few minutes less of hairstyling. Make sure to do all your curls good, that way your hairstyle will last the entire time you’re out and if done well maybe into the next day.
6. Use your fingers
Don’t comb your curls out with your comb or brush. Instead, gently pick through your curls with your fingers and gently tousle the ends. For a more “bed-head” effect, flip your head over and give it a few shakes. At this time, you can also give yourself a bit more volume on top, gently tease the top few layers of your hair and gently comb over to smooth things up.
7. Use a good professional spray
By “good” we mean hairspray that isn’t going to freeze your curls up, glug or clump – you know what I mean. You need your hair to move freely, to bounce as you walk. Choose a light-hold hairspray – just enough to keep those curls around for a while like the new Eimi Stay Styled perfect for romantic curls. (Remember, you’ve got mousse to help it to hold if you followed tip 3.) All you need is a little. Keep your curls full of life and liberty to move around!
There you have it! Romantic curls are yours, if you follow these easy tips and you’re ready to have a blast or pamper yourself for that romantic date night with your loved one and let us romance your hair for you.
