I started with prepped, dry hair. I washed and conditioned my hair and put on a generous helping of Suave Pro Curls Mousse (picked up from Kroger) to give my hair a base to hold my curls and give an extra oomph of volume–it’s the backbone of my 70s style! One my mousse was on, I let my hair air dry while I applied my makeup for the day and got dressed. You could also rough dry with a hairdryer if you’re pressed for time.
I section off my hair with hair elastics and start with the bottom layer for my curls.
My holy grail of curling rods–The Sultra Bombshell curling rod! This rod heats up really fast and holds the curl for DAYS. Make sure you’re stocked up on dry shampoo because you’ll be wearing this style for a couple days!
I grab a 1 inch section of hair at a time, grab the ends together, and wrap it around the curling wand. Make sure that you’re not flattening the section of hair when its being wrapped, but let it naturally twist into a rope. This allows for the ‘imperfect’ curls that have more volume and give a messy wave look.
Once the bottom layer is complete, section out another layer and continue to curl, curl, curl! Continue with all layers until your hair is completely curled.
Once all pieces are curled, I run my fingers through my hair to softly brush it out, amp up the volume, and mess it around a bit. For this look, the messier–the better!
If you want to recreate this look, head over to Kroger for deals on hair products to get major volume for your tresses! $2 off any 2 Suave Professionals, $3 off any 2 Dove products, $2 off any 1 Dove Styling or Treatment product, and $1.50 off any Tresemme Styling product. Love a good deal!
