Description

Mya made quite an impression with her natural curls at the Louis Vuitton Love Party for Oxfam America. Her hair length was left just below her shoulders and her ends and mid-lengths were layered to help reduce weight and to create an even shape to her hairstyle. This is a great hairstyle for anyone with naturally curly hair.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

step 1

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.


2. Part to the Left

step 2

Using the corner of your comb and standing in front of a mirror find the middle of your left eye and then drag the comb straight up slowly until you reach your hairline and then continue back in a straight manner to achieve an even left part. A side part is great for longer face shapes because it creates the illusion of width.


3. Use a Paddle Brush

step 3

A paddle brush is used for detangling the hair and can be used to smooth out straight hair when blow-drying or styling. It is a must have for every household.


4. Blow-dry Using a Paddle Brush

step 4

Working in sections starting from the back, place the paddle brush close to the roots and drag it through the strands slowly, taking care not to overheat your hair. Once dry, continue to a new section, completing the back, the sides and then the top section last of all.


5. Use a Small Curling Iron

step 5

A small curling iron is used to create small and tight curls.


6. Curl Mid-lengths and Ends with a Curling Iron

step 6

Take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your mid-lengths. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards.


7. Use a Curling Iron on the Front and Sides

step 7

Starting at the front, take a small section of hair and place the ends at the base of your curling iron barrel and then wrap the hair up around the barrel until you reach your roots. Hold the hair for 5 to 10 seconds and then release the hair by unwinding the strands backwards. Continue this step until all of the hair through your front and sides has been curled.


8. Piece the Ends Using Moulding Cream

step 8

Apply a small amount of moulding cream to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.


9. Apply Hairspray

step 9

To finish, apply a minimal amount of hairspray from an arms length distance to the top, sides and back. Take care not to use too much or you will end up with a white, flaky residue which looks like dandruff.
