making curly waves hair tutorial

Some of you have asked how I get my waves/curl, so I thought it would be fun to show you in a video…

I have naturally curly/wavy hair, but I use a curling iron (similar to this) to curl it (and spray with this hairspray) and help tame it on the first day after a wash. I wash my hair about every 3 days (I use this dry shampoo), and so I sleep with pink foam rollers in my hair for the next couple of nights until it’s time to wash again. If I want my hair to be straighter the next day, I forgo the foam rollers for the night. Using the foam rollers helps limit the heat damage on my hair, and it does save time fixing my hair in the morning. I just unroll, spray, comb through, and go!

When I’m undoing the rollers in my hair in the video, that really is my head first thing in the morning (I obviously did put make up on). My sister came first thing to film that portion, so what you saw is really what my hair and rollers look like after wearing them during a full night’s sleep. As far as sleep goes, I don’t find the rollers uncomfortable at all, but I do think I look pretty silly with them. Ben used to laugh at me when I used to put them on, but now he’s used to it. Well, now you know my secret and how silly I look when I go to bed at night! Would you give pink foam rollers a try?

    Thanks for sharing your tricks! Going to try this to give my hair a break from heat styling. Curious what hair spray you are using in the video?

    Cutest video as always! I may just start wearing those rollers! If you can have gorgeous hair everyday with four then maybe I can do it too with just three:) Just the motivation I needed!

    What a great tip! My hair actually holds curl really well, so I can get away without rollers at night once I’ve curled it though. I just wanted to say that you are even more gorgeous in person (‘on video’) than in pictures!

      Aww… thank you so much! My hair holds curl well too. I think because I already have wavy/curly hair, so it stays in.

    what styling product do you use before curling it with the iron? Anything before the rollers? Anything to help set it when unrolled and styled?

    Thanks! Always looking for new ideas on how to manage my curls!
