Red Carpet Inspired Curls Tutorial

Since my hair is longer now, I don’t sport my usual curl as often as I used to. Mainly because the weight of my hair means that the curl is much looser and hard to style. So lately I’ve been searching for a way to embrace curls in a sophisticated, less tight ringlets, looser way. So here is my tutorial on how to achieve a voluminous, loose red carpet-inspired curl with only one tool that I guarantee most of you will have access to.


Take roughly 1.5 inch sections of hair

And with a straightener, instead of running the straightener right down your hair, place them half way down your section of hair at an angle (similar to shown below) and rotate 360 degrees as you move down the section

When you’ve done that to one side of your head, it should look something like this, very loose curls at the very ends of your hair

Once you’ve completed both sides, the trick is to brush through your hair. This loosens the curls, and bonds them together, in a big, nice wave.

And that’s it! I hope you guys recreate this style because it only takes roughly 15 minutes (or more depending on the thickness of your hair) but it is so big that it makes you feel quite glamorous!IMAG2390

Let me know of any other hairstyles you’d like me to do a tutorial on!


I’d also just like to quickly thank all of you. Every one of you guys that reads this blog have helped me to pursue a hobby that I love. Without you, it would have no purpose. So thank you again, I can’t believe how many people this has reached, and (cheesiest line alert) here’s to the next thousand.
