Hello belles! This post has been a long time coming and I'm so excited to share some hair-tricks with you! Today's 'How-To' is all about those effortless curls that make the gent's head turn.

It takes about 30 minutes and is a perfect way to do your own hair on the big day (or just about every day if you're me).

Ready. Set. Start Your Irons!

I use a 1.5 inch curling iron. The curls seem to stay longer than with a larger barrel.

Let towel dry for about 10 minutes. (I usually do my make-up while I wait)

Blow-dry upside down until completely dry. (My hair holds curl better when it's clean but if yours is different skip the first two steps)

Pull half of your hair up. Spritz hair with medium hold hair spray before curling.

Begin at the root, slowing feeding hair through by slightly unclamping the iron. Check out the video below if it's not making sense.

Hold iron for about 5-10 seconds. Always curl away from your face.

Flip head and shake hair out at the root. (so you don't have those perfect 'prom curls')

Run fingers through to loosen curls. (If your hair doesn't hold curl well, you may want to skip this step)

Final product!

Pin a few pieces under layers to keep out of face. (Advised for the wedding day so you aren't constantly pushing hair back or behind your ears)

For extra volume and stay hold bottom of curls and use a comb to tease upward.

Now all that's left to do is get'cha model on! So whip that iron out, slap on some Pink & Proper lipstick and hit the town (or isle)!

  2. I didn't even see this until just now! I wish I saw it before I made my tutorial. You always curl your hair so perfectly. I hope all is well lady :D
