Easy Ways To Get Heatless Curls (With Video Tutorials!)
25 August 2016
Want heatless curls? We’ve rounded up our 5 favourite easy ways to get the look, complete with tutorials. Eyes down (and no damaged hair in sight!).
Heatless curls are so simple and you always get a natural, glossy effect with no hair damage.
Method 1: We love love Mimi from LuxyHair and here she is showing you one of our favourite ways to get heatless curls. This is a big favourite at allbeautyHQ, especially as a straight from work look. Simply wear your hair in a cute band (or scarf) during the day for a chic, office look. Then take it out, shake your hair and work through some finishing product. Ta-dah!
Tip: before you wrap your hair you may want to apply a little TIGI Curls Rock to hold the style. After styling work through a little KMS California TameFrizz Taming Creme for anti-frizz, definition and light hold.
Method 2: Ok now for one you’ve probably noticed yourself: when you put your hair into a sockbun (or donut) you often find yourself with curly hair when you let the hair down. Here’s exactly how to do it if curls are your aim. This is done with dry hair and again is perfect for office to party wear. We would finish this look with a little polishing serum since it’s a loose wave look. We really like Paul Mitchell Neon Smoothing Sugar Cream.
Method 3: More socks but stay with us! For this you’ll need about 5 clean socks – and that’s all. If you have trouble creating curls then use TIGI Catwalk Styling Mousse to hold in the curl before you wrap your hair, otherwise finish with a spritz of spray for a natural, loose look.
Method 4: Now for a tutorial for shorter hair. Again if you have trouble holding a curl then use a product when the hair is damp. Kerastase Resistance Volumifique Mousse is ideal for fine hair.
Method 5: Now for an all-time classic. Michelle Phan showed us back in 2009 how to get heatless curls using just a paper bag and damp hair. What a lifesaver if you’re travelling or at a festival! This works on all hair lengths. Finish with a spray of TIGI Bed Head Volume Finishing Spray.
