Tight corkscrews  

Boost your natural waves with a slim curling wand to copy this catwalk look. Use a heat protector first and, for neat twists, curl hair away from your face when using the wand – it will avoid any hint of ‘poodle’. Fix the look with hairspray.

The kit BaByliss Tight Curls Wand*, VO5 Extra Hold Hairspray (275ml)

 

The statement S-bend

Create a bold curl by wrapping a one-inch ‘front fringe’ section around tongs – spray it with heat protector first. Curl the rest of your hair and comb through, leaving the S-bend to keep its strong shape

The kit Mark Hill Pick ’N’ Mix The Glam Waver Barrel*, Aussie Pure Locks Nourish & Protect Spray (100ml)

Natural air-drying

Spritz a styling spray through damp hair and scrunch as you work it through. Moisture is key for this style, so follow up with a nourishing balm for texture. Warm it in your hands to make sure it spreads evenly. And remember – less is more.

The kit L’Oréal Paris Stylista The Curl Tonic (200ml), Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Balm (50g) EXCLUSIVE

Brushed-out waves

Bored with your curls but want to switch things up without too much effort? Brush them out for a mussed-up, on-trend texture. For max results, create this style on dry hair and use curling cream on the mid-lengths down to the ends to combat frizz.

The kit John Frieda Frizz Ease Unwind Curls Calming Crème (150ml), WetBrush Punchy Pink Hair Brush
