Curls & Waves


blonde twirls

A smooth crown gives way to buttery blonde swirls in this gorgeous mane silhouette. Sections of hair are wrapped vertically around the outside of a large-barrel curling iron, then released and allowed to cool. To keep the curl in tact, ringlets are finger-combed through with a touch of styling pomade on fingertips and fluffed for perfection.

curl rebellion

A riot of curves explodes and twists from every inch of the head, creating a glorious profile of excitement. Natural curls can lead the way, but curling-iron versions can also stand up to the style test. Just keep everything tousled and mist with flexible-hold hairspray to keep curls in motion all day long.

spiral elegance

There’s something to be said about the definition and long-lasting hold of a hot-roller spiral curl… Individual ringlets are created by wrapping lengths around hot rollers of varying sizes, allowing the rollers to cool completely before removing. A touch of pomade slicked over each spiral tames any awkward flyaways and completely defines each and every spiral curl.

celebrity style

Katharine McPhee

Though we originally admired Katharine McPhee mostly on the radio after her turn on American Idol, these days we’re spying on her acting chops and style profile on the television show Scorpion. 

Proving you don’t need a ton of curvature to rock a wavy look, Katharine opts for a subtle beachy wave that starts at chin level with only a gentle twist or two before the ends. A quick flip with the flat iron does the job!
