Let’s Do The Twist!
For today’s Primping with ABD post, I wanted to share with you a little curling tutorial. I have been getting a lot of questions in regards to my hair–how I curl it & style it, which is super sweet and really hilarious because Lord knows I do it differently every single time, depending on how much time I have + what the weather is like. Also, this is really quite funny because I pinky promise that the photos that you are seeing of my hair are taken quite literally RIGHT after I finished doing it, because let’s be real… as soon as I walk outside in the Florida humidity, it’s over. Curl is gone and all that is left is a slightly wavy look that has been over hairspray-ed! Ha! Anyways, come late October, my hair will look like this for more than like 30 minutes. Did I mention I love Fall?

Okay, so… here we go!
Step one: I blow dry my wet hair after applying Kenra Blow Dry Spray (I swear by this stuff!) and dry shampoo; this gives my very fine hair a little texture, just what I need.
Step two: I section my hair and curl it in large chunks AWAY from my face. Once I hit the back of my head I switch and start to curl the opposite direction.
Step three: I then take another section (around the crown of my head) and do the same thing, to give it a little extra “umph”!
Step four: I then break up the curls with my fingers by lightly brushing them through my hair.
Step five: Lastly I tease!! I take the front pieces of my hair and tease them and spray.
Step six: I then plaster it down with hairspray and prayyyyy that it doesn’t rain.
Also, good news! This takes a whole 15 minutes to accomplish, because let’s be real–messy is in!
Let me know if you try it or have any other great tips I missed! Like I’ve said before, I am by no means an expert. This is just what works for my hair!
