How To

How to: Easy at home hair

Great curls or beachy waves styling really rely on a good foundation. We love hot tool styling as a day two or three option when you couldn’t be bothered washing your hair again but still want to look the part. Our top blowdry tips are below:

  • Rinse shampoo and conditioner out fully.
  • Shampoo twice.
  • Use a powerful blow-dryer with a nozzle.
  • Start by blowdrying and smoothing your roots with your fingers, staying away from your ends, as these will dry quickly.
  • Once most of the moisture is gone section out your hair- section your hair from the bottom, around from the temples and then above the ears.
  • Use a round brush when blowdrying and blow-dry sections no larger then your brush.
  • Finish up by flicking your hairdryer to its ‘cool’ setting-the cold air will seal your blow-dry and make it last forever… or atleast an extra day or two.

Beachy waves using a straightener:
Everyone loves effortless beachy waves! But getting the perfect loose curls can be a little daunting. We have broken down the look to help you get the perfect ‘i woke up like this’ curl at home. What we love about beachy or messy waves is that they are perfect for long, shoulder length, bob and even pixie hairstyles.

  1. Start on air dried or blowdried hair. This look works great on clean or day old hair. Prep hair by brushing throughly and spraying with a heat protect of your choice.
  2. Starting in the back, split hair down the middle and draw large sections forward in order to wrap around the iron. Don’t worry about getting it too perfect in the back, as the front is what will really matter!
  3. Hold your curling iron open, wrapping hair around the iron or twist the hair downwards through your straightener. Start the curl a couple inches from the root and hold on to the ends so that they stay free from the heat.
  4. Once the hair has been heated through, remove the strand and pull on the ends to relax the curl. Quickly run the iron/curling wand through the lengths of the hair to relax the wave.
  5. Continue the same process on the other side of the head.
  6. Once the entire head has been curled, spray hair with Original & Mineral Surf Bomb.
  7. Gently scrunch and shake the hair for an effortless finish and you’re good to go! If you’re after a little extra hold you can always add a spray or two of our ultimate best friend Frizzy Logic Serum.

Hollywood curls using a curling wand or iron:
Beachy waves not your thing? If you like styles that are both classical and vintage, then Old Hollywood curls might be for you. The perfect work day or date night look is easy to achieve than you might think.

  1. Start on air dried or blowdried hair. This look works great on clean or day old hair. Prep hair by brushing throughly and spraying with a heat protect of your choice.
  2. Starting in the back, split hair down the middle and draw sections forward in order to wrap around the iron. Begin curling in fairly even sections towards your face. The biggest thing to remember when going for the old hollywood hair look is to curl toward your face, unlike beachy waves or lose curls.
  3. Clamp the iron in the middle of your strands, curl the barrel toward your face, and wrap the ends around the bottom. (for extra height pin your curls by rolling them up towards your roots and pinning with a clip or bobby pin)
  4. Repeat until all your hair is in perfectly 80s prom worthy curls.
  5. Wait for hair to cool and the lightly brush out. BRUSH THROUGH!? You say? Won’t that ruin my curls? Nope, you got this.
  6. Depending on your desired finish spray with hair spray or a shine serum or oil.
