How To Create Taylor Swift Loose Curls
How Taylor Swift’s Loose Curls Can Get You Noticed
Taylor Swift with that beautiful head of long curly hair every gal envies, looks like a bohemian princess and has a voice to match . . . Don’t you just hate her?
I didn’t r e a l l y mean that now, but some girls have all the luck. I mean like that naturally beautiful, naturally loose curls. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, when spiral perms were the big thing, the long curly Taylor Swift hair is exactly what every long haired woman wanted. The problem was that with long, spiral curly perms came frizz and sometimes uncontrollable volume. You’ve seen pictures . . . think Rosanna Rosanna Dana. And since we all want the Taylor Swift hair we haven’t got, salons were full of straight haired women paying their dues and trying to wrestle their hair into submission. If you have naturally straight hair you would be better to stay away from chemical treatments that try to take your hair to the opposite extreme.
If you have hair with some wave and body in it, you can get the Taylor Swift hair look. One easy fix is to invest in hair extensions. Hairuwear by Ken Pave’s and Jessica Simpson are hot right now. They are easy to put in and take out with just three clips, they look real and they are priced right. Price ranges from $45.00 for synthetic to $200.00 plus for real hair. If you want long soft cascading loose curls or long curly hair see how easy it is to do here. Thick, coarse hair may require a body perm. Fine to medium hair can be coaxed into lasting loose, curls with Texture Fusion by Scruples, a perm done on sponges. You can style it by simple scrunching or you can use a curling iron.
Step By Step DIY Taylor Swift Loose Curls
If you have long wavy hair with body and are willing to do some hair styling, this method works great!
- Use a volumizing shampoo and follow with a conditioner you like.
- Spray a root lifter on roots and use a volumizing mouse, styling spray or gel if you like.
- Blow-dry smoothing the cuticle.
- Mist with a thermal active spray.
- Starting at the nape, clip hair up dropping 1″ horizontal sections down at a time.
- Using a 1″ or 1 1/4″ barrel curling iron, wrap hair around barrel starting close to the scalp in a spiral motion leaving ends out to curl last. This will allow the hair to be curled evenly throughout its entire length.
- Gently drop without pulling out the curl.
- Mist curls lightly with finishing spray before dropping down next section to be curled.
- Drop down sections, repeating above till done.
Your ends shouldn’t be frizzy if you make sure to get them cleanly covered with your curling iron. But a light smoothing serum used by rubbing it into your palms and coaxing the ends down with your fingers will also do the trick.
Here’s How to Give Your Hair a Texture Boost
I for one, am glad to see a return to more feminine hairdos of soft curls. These hair dos will work with many face shapes, hair types and hair designs. Hair styled in big loose curls, whether they fall over the shoulders or are swept up in a messy “bed head” do for weddings and proms. Bobs are going soft loose curls too. Wavy bobs, a fresh look with movement for short hair, can be created at home using a three-barreled waving iron Whether it’s naturally curly or not there is plenty you can do to take texture center-stage.
- Curly hair grows wider and higher from the scalp than straight strands, so make the most of it with layers that add fullness and shape.
- Let your hair stylist know how long you want hair to grow and how much time you’ll spend styling it. Then, let him or her make suggestions.
- The less you manipulate curl, the better. For healthy shine and shapely curls, try the new oils, which treats hair without going greasy or building up.
- To add texture to straight strands, always think lightweight and touchable when choosing a styling product.
- Whether you’re adding ringlets, making waves or reshaping natural texture, remember that the size of the tool equals the size of the curl.
- Use large rollers for volume, medium-sized curling irons and rollers for true curl, and pin curls, finger-styling and rag or sponge rollers for natural, non-uniform-looking curls and waves.
