Queen Of The N-eye-L

Completely gorgeous!

Kimberly Caldwell’s Spiral Sensation

I recently hosted a charity event in Vancouver, Canada, supporting Dress For Success, which is a non-profit organization that gives disadvantaged women the tools they need to succeed in the work force. I have donated makeovers for this amazing cause and love that they are all about empowerment!

I not only rocked my baby bump to the gala but also sported these modern day finger waves. I always preached that I was officially a short-haired kind of woman now that I’m older, but I’m taking the plunge and on a journey to become Rapunzel.

Since my hair is growing out, it’s getting so tough to find styles that I can wear down without wanting to throw it up in a bun after five minutes. It’s at that in-between length right now, so I curled it enough to become a long bob. The trick is using a small barrel curling iron and creating spirals in layers. Oh, and did I mention lots of hairspray? That’s my go-to for every look. You can take the girl out of Texas….!

First, spray your whole head to kick it off. Start with the bottom layer and clip up the rest. Twist the strands around the barrel going away from your face on both sides. Then layer by layer, repeat. Let the curls cool then use a bristled brush and comb through the curls evenly. After a few strokes the locks will form together and look sleek and clean. Add a spray shine to enhance the glam! These curls lasted me two days!

Everyone asked what salon I got my hair done at and I told them, “If I can do it, so can you!” Yes, I’m talking to you girl! Practice makes perfect. Even though perfect is so boring….so practice makes it easier and easier! Haha. Whip out that iron and spray and get started little lady!
