Messy curls ruled the runway during New York Fashion Week at shows like Badgley Mischka and Carolina Herrera. Would you let your curls run free or create some yourself?
You might be thinking that you dislike your curls and prefer to straighten them or that you have such straight hair you would never be able to achieve these runway curls, but the fall 2012 shows at New York Fashion Week prove that curls are in and you can have them no matter what your hair texture might be!Backstage at Badgley Mischka, Peter Gray for Moroccanoil created the bouncy curls by taking very small sections of hair, sprayed and brushed through with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray, and wrapped them around a small-barrel curling iron. After curling a section, Peter pinned the curl back. When the whole head was complete, he let the curls loose and teased the hair to his liking.It’s quite shocking that these curls were created with just the use if a curling iron and some hairspray! Even models with the straightest hair ended up with uniform curls after sitting in the styling chairs backstage.For curls that are more loose and flowing, like at the J. Mendel fall 2012 show, simply use a curling iron with a larger barrel. See how the romantic waves were created for the J. Mendel show here.
