Let’s hop right into some of the hair tricks I’ve learned over the years dealing with wavy hair. Humidity and rain are pure enemies if you have wavy or curly hair! I’ve had to play around with my hair, talk to other cosmetologist and hairstylists, watch beauty bloggers. etc. I think you get the picture, it’s been a long road, but I have decided to share some of these with you!!
Create chic, beachy bends by holding your curling wand horizontally instead of vertically. First, grab a small 1-inch section of hair. Then, starting at the mid-shaft of your hair, twist and wrap it over the barrel while holding the iron horizontally. Hold the hair in place for a few seconds, and then release for a loose wave. If you want tighter, more spirally curls, hold the wand vertically while you wrap the hair around it.
Fill an empty spray bottle with your favorite foaming mousse to de-aerate it, creating a product that’s much easier to use. Taking the air out of the mousse with a spray bottle makes the product into more of a liquid than a foam while retaining the same volume-boosting properties. You can spray it on and work it through your hair much easier.
Prevent your low bun from loosening by tying your hair in two separate ponytails first. Tie the pigtails as close together as possible in the middle of the back of your head, and then wrap the ends around each other, creating the bun. Secure with bobby pins.
Test how your makeup will look in different lighting by using the flashlight on your phone while looking in the mirror. If you apply your makeup in a room with overhead lighting (which can cast shadows on your makeup job), it can look completely different under different lighting, so try this. (Those bathroom mirrors and lighting can be tricky!!)
For the perfect foundation application, start at the center of your face and spread the product outward to blend. If you apply a lot of foundation around your jawline or hairline, you’ll look like you’re wearing a mask. If you start at the center, the product will fade out around the edges for a more natural look.
Hand Lotion Anti-Frizz TreatmentFrizz is not your friend, nor is it mine! If you find your frizz situation getting out of control while on-the-go and you’ve forgotten to pack any anti-frizz product, rub a coin-sized amount of hand lotion into your palms and use it to smooth out and tame frizzy bits and ends in your hair. Use this solution with care and in emergencies, as some of the ingredients in hand lotion might not be suitable for hair on a regular basis. FYI: The lotion takes care of static cling too!
Best Time to Apply Dry Shampoo is At NIGHT If you apply the dry shampoo at night it soaks up the excess oil and you won’t have a film or residue in your hair. I always blow my hair out with the hairdryer too, it gives it more volume.
Try these out and let me know how they did for you!! Stay safe and I will talk to you soon!
