makeup c/o Root
If you haven’t heard of Root… it is worth checking out!
It is a common question I get here on the blog and on Instagram…
“How do you get your hair to curl like that?”
Honestly, I can get my hair to do pretty much anything I want
(aside from air drying and looking good).
I have spent YEARS playing with my hair and figuring out how it works best.
It takes time and patience. Before flat irons, I would spend over an hour on my hair every morning.
With all that said, know that using a flat iron to curl your hair takes practice.
I tend to always curl my hair away from my face. I think it looks better and my hair stays out of my face more consistently when I curl that way. When my hair was in a pixie cut,
I would alternate the direction of my curls. It is all personal preference.
Please note that in the video, my hair looks super brassy and orange.
I am not a videographer, and it filmed with a lot of warmth, so just ignore the coloring.
I also have no idea how to edit, so giggle at my “unprofessionalism” and turn your head at the awkward parts. 😉
