Girl Talk: The Girl with the Curl

girl talk

Having girlfriends is the best.thing.ever.  Someone with whom you can swap stories, giggle and share life’s wonderful moments. There’s so much wisdom that I have gained from the amazing women in my life; whether about the best product to get rid of dreaded frizz or advice on how to live my life with passion.  My life is better because of the girlfriends in it.  That’s why I started “Girl Talk“.

This is my beautiful friend, Ashlynn.  You probably know her from here, here and here (ok so maybe she’s something of a celebrity around here)

She has amazing hair.  I mean, clearly.  I asked her to share how she gets her drool-worthy curls on today’s “Girl Talk”.  Take it away Ashlynn!

Step 1. Start with blown dry hair.

**hint** “second day” hair is best as the curl will hold better when your hair has more of its natural oil.

Step 2. Plug in your hot rollers and allow to set for at least 15 minutes for long or thick hair, 5-10 minutes should be sufficient for short or thin hair.

**hint** I use Remington Style – Ceramic Compact Hot Rollers

Step 3. Start at the crown of your head and wrap 1-2 inch sections of hair around each hot roller and secure with the pins provided.

**hint** i dab a little bit of gel (light hold) onto the sections of hair right before i roll them, you could use a light spray of hairspray as well.

Step 4. Repeat the curling process until you have wrapped all of your hair in hot rollers.

Step 5. Leave in for at least 30 minutes.

**hint** you can use this time to do your makeup or finish getting ready or pretend you’re a fabulous movie star.

Step 6. Starting at the base of your neck and working upwards, unwrap each roller in a spiral motion.

Step 7. Shake out your curls and run your fingers through them to separate.
Step 8. Spray with hairspray to finish and you’re done!

How fun! Thanks Ashlynn! Can’t wait to try it myself.

Stay tuned, tomorrow we have a special treat so you can try this yourself at home!

    I’ll have to give this a shot one of these days. My hair is as straight as it can be and usually falls out in an hour. Last time I did curls for my sister’s wedding, it took a lot of gunk and bobby pins just to hold it. I had to wash it out three or four times. Unless you have another suggestion without using a ton of damaging products.

      I know the feeling! I’ve found the tip about using just a little gel or hairspray before the hot roller to really help. Good luck Liza! Let me know how it works. XOXO

    I remember sponge curlers! I think my worst hair was big bangs curled straight up. And the high school freshman picture that demonstrated just how difficult it is to get that right! I think that is when I started growing out my bangs.
    Love the gorgeous curls and all the tips! Thanks!

      I remember our bangs! I think we totally rocked them! 😉 We were too cool for school. I am however hoping that that trend doesn’t make a comeback with the floral pants 🙂 Hope you are well! XOXO

        Are you rocking the floral pants? Can’t quite bring myself to do it. We may be getting a nice old victorian with a pink tiled bathroom you could love!
