Party Hair- Volume 1: How to Curl

Party Hair

New Year's Eve is almost here and Bobby Cooper Salon wants you to look your best.  If you don't have time to book an appointment, we are willing to share a few secrets of our own to do your hair at home. Check back tomorrow for "Volume" 2 on how to do an updo!

1) Wash and towel dry hair. 

2) Apply a heat protector like Kerastase Nectar Thermique mid-shaft through ends and a root booster on roots (Shu's Fiber Lift) to add volume.

3) Blowdry hair and spray on a curl holder and protector (Shu's Iron Design).

4) Using 1.25 inch curling iron clamp 1 inch section of hair close to the scalp leaving a tail. Gently rolling curling iron until the tail is the last piece into the curling iron (so your ends don't get fried). See picture for more details.

5) Repeat all over head keeping curls facing down and away from face.

6) Once you look like Goldilocks, like picture to the left, brush out curls. We know, you worked so hard for them! 
7) Begin teasing hair by pulling 1 inch sections at the crown. Using a fine toothed comb, comb hair in downward direction only, until hair is teased. Smooth top layer with your fingers and tease ends with a pick.

8) Spray with hairspray and you're done!
