You can never go wrong with curls, they add body, texture, and a touch of exoticness. The sweetest part is, you really only need one tool to achieve a multitude of looks and of course, knowing how to use it! Let’s go over five great styles and see what your old friend the curling wand is really capable of! Remember to add your favorite Estelle’s Secret hair extensions to add length and thickness to any of the following styles.
Classic Flat Curl
So, the classic flat curl is a no-brainer, every girl either knows or needs to know how to get this simple go-to look. Simply start by wrapping your hair or your clip-in extensions around the barrel of the wand all the way to the ends. Don’t allow any spaces between the ribbons of hair and I would say give it about 10 seconds to get a nice, solid curl. Then, allow it too cool in your hand for a couple of seconds. Follow this pattern all over and you will get an elegant, classy, curl that is perfect for any special occasion or just to add a little something extra to a casual look.
Twisted Spiral Curl
Sounds edgy, doesn’t it? This curl is much spicier than the classic flat curl! Ok, the first step is to take a small section of your hair or hair extensions, and twist it all the way to the end. Next, wrap the twist tightly around the curling wand. After the curl is set, allow it to cool in the palm of your hand for a bit and then release it. Isn’t it the coolest curl ever?! I mean, who knew?! I think this curl is great for a night out on the town with friends or a fun day of shopping. Time to make some plans just to have somewhere to go and rock this curl, lol!
Soft Hollywood Wave
Back to another classic look, but this is totally different than the classic flat curl. If you’ve ever wondered how to get that buttery soft old Hollywood glamor curl, well, this is it! Start by wrapping your hair or clip-in hair extensions around the barrel horizontally. Now, instead of holding the hair in place on the barrel, gently roll the barrel up and down. Also, instead of allowing the curl to cool in your hand or releasing it completely, you’ll need to pin the curl up using hair clips (use the silver ones for that Hollywood feel, haha). Complete this process all over. Once all of your hair has cooled you can take the pins out and brush the curls all over. Don’t be afraid to brush it good since you’re going for more of a soft wave instead of curl.
Victoria Secret Curl
Here is the curl all of us Victoria Secret obsessed ladies have been waiting for! Victoria’s Secret is now Estelle’s Secret and we are sharing it with YOU! The trick behind those flawless, bouncy, glamorous curls is all about…wait for it….sections! Divide your hair or hair extensions into four equal parts, two at the front, two at the back. Starting at the bottom of each section curl your hair up and hold until the curl is set. Pin the curl up and start the next section. Once each section is done and pinned allow them to cool down completely. Then, simply let the curls down and shake, shake, shake. There you have it! Gorgeous, sexy, and voluminous curls!
Messy Beach Waves
You can totally get bodacious, windblown, beach waves in just a few minutes without having to use product (especially those sea salt sprays) or wetting your hair. All you need is your handy dandy curling wand! For this carefree and “I could care less,” look, all you have to do is wrap your hair around the curling wand a couple of times but you’re going to leave the last two to four inches of your hair out depending on how long your hair or hair extensions are. Now, the sections need to be medium thick when you curl them and can be released afterward. When you finish with all the curls, use your fingers to comb and tease the curls to your liking. All done!
