Curling with a straightener (the difference between the same direction & alternating directions!)

Have you ever curled your hair with the straighteners and then wondered why one side might look slightly different to the other side? It could quite well be the direction in which you are curling in! In this video I demonstrate the different looks achieved with curling all in the same direction (right hand side) and then alternating directions (left hand side) Curling or waving in the same direction, will allow all of your curls to fall into the same place creating a…

How I Style A Wig

How I style my wig! So when my wig firstly arrived, it was pre styled with a bouncy blow dry kind of feel. It had quite a lot of volume at the root and this can make a wig look unnatural against the head. So I created a style where the wig would look a lot more natural and sit flatter to the head. I used the ghd gold styler to create a flat, barely there wave to the hair…

Products used: - ghd mini stylers here: http://tidd.ly/b5b0abc2 - ghd hairspray here: http://tidd.ly/d3da7fb6 - ghd paddle brush here: http://tidd.ly/ce4ca455 - oil here: http://tidd.ly/74d11238 If you do not already follow @negin_mirsalehi you definitely should, as she is ultimate hair goals and girl boss! So I thought I’d do a little tutorial on how to create her amazing curls/tight waves that last in the hair for at least 3 days! 1) Begin with freshly washed, smooth, dry hair 2) Section into 2 (left and right) and use sectioning clips to section bottom upwards in 2 inch deep sections 3) Using @ghd mini stylers, rotate a full turn at the root and then glide down on a 45 degree horizontal angle 4) Swap hands for the opposite side and repeat the same, but make sure your curls are the opposite way! 5) All curls should be in the same direction on each side but falling AWAY from the face, so different for each side! 6) Keep working up towards the top of the head in 2 inch deep sections. Repeat the same technique on bangs if you have any 7) Mist with hairspray and allow to fully cool 8) Once fully cool, use a paddle brush to brush out curls. This will loosen them out and bring them all together to create more of a waved shape 9) Use a couple drops of oil, warm up in your hands and then run through your locks with your fingers. This will tame, smooth and add shine. 10) Et Voila! You’re set for your waves to last until next hair wash day! (*You can use the standard styler size and you will just create a slightly looser look!) #hair #hairgoals #curlyhair #curls #hairstyle #neginmirsalehi #chloeswiftstylist
