Fluffy Vintage Curls

HOW TO STYLE


Step 1: Focusing on the hair ends which the extensions are attached to, apply treatment oil with your fingers, and brush out tangles with a cushion brush.


Step 2: Twist a small section of hair, insert into a 26-mm curler and twist clockwise to produce a spiral curl. Let the hair ends escape.


Step 3: Take the next small section of hair, twist, and insert into the curler in a anti-clockwise twist. Continue to twist and curl all of your hair in small sections, in mixed clockwise and anti-clockwise curls.


Step 4: After curling all your hair, divide your bangs into 2 sections, top and bottom, and do inward curls on both with 25-mm plastic curlers.


Step 5: Use a cushion brush to brush out your curls and add more volume. It is ok if the hair ends stick out in different directions.


Step 6: Apply holding spray on your bangs to keep their fluffy inward curl. Adjust your bangs such that they curl into a good length that covers your forehead nicely.

Step 3: Secure the bun with pins. Arrange the bun such that it looks round and fluffy, and you’re done.
