How to do Your Hair like Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift, (with that beautiful head of long curly hair every gal envies) won both video of the year and female video of the year at the CMT Music Awards 2008 on Monday night.
“How to Curl Hair Like Taylor Swift”
Taylor Swift is just 19 years old, 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 long curly blonde hair that looks just shy of perfect, and somehow effortless and wistful.
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 women 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 curls or long curly hair see how easy it is to do here.
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.
